Once upon a time, all installations of SOLIDWORKS came with a Quick Reference Guide. This wonderfully useful guide was an excellent document to have printed on a few pages and posted in your cubicle for — you guessed it — quick reference!
Unfortunately the SOLIDWORKS Quick Reference Guide has not been included in any SOLIDWORKS releases since 2010.
That begs the question, what is a person who is looking for a list of keyboard shortcuts to do?
The response to that question depends on exactly what you are looking to hang on your cubicle wall. If it is a straight to the point reference chart of default keyboard shortcuts that you seek — it is easily available from the keyboard shortcut tab of the customize dialog box.
To the upper right hand corner under the “Keyboard” tab of the SOLIDWORKS Customize dialog there are buttons for “Print List” and “Copy List”.
- Copy List will provide you with a windows clipboard copy of the text from each column, that you can then format yourself.
- Print List will print out the listing of commands that you have filtered out to be displayed in the main panel of the dialog. The “Print List” button will allow you to choose a printer by which to print the document.
In this instance we had printed a copy out to PDF to post on our cubicle wall!
