This is a graphic template of the keyboard locations for the standard tool shortcuts for VectorWorks 2008.

A customized template that I use, is also included. The template is a VectorWorks.vwx file, so you can edit it as you wish. I recommend you print it and attach it to your keyboard, the front of you display or computer (in the case of an iMac).

You can rearrange the location of any tool to your preference, just make sure you use the Workspace Editor to assign the correct key to that tool.

David Fantastic!!

This should be included by VW2008 - I find it unbelievable that they don't have a full simple list of all the shortcuts!!(Well I haven't found one.) Once again thanks...

These keyboard shortcuts are for macbook
The workspace pretend you to work by groups of tools on the same line and a primary color for function keys and secondary color for a combined function keys for memorizing better
for example modifiers and walls are on the same line
and groups of similar funcions work also with the same key
for example all windows open with the same key
This workspace fixes the problem with the standad view of new macbook keyboards
i hope work for someone who needs this
