Shortcut to Change from COP tag to System Size Tag
« on: Jun 13, 2023, 21:23:54 PM »
When detailing drawings I have to frequently change between COP and System Size tags. This process takes a few steps:

1. Use "TG" keyboard shortcut.
2. Select "Tags" in upper left corner.
3. Scroll down to "Pipes/Pipe Placeholders" option and change between COP and System Size tags.

I'm wondering if there's any way I could streamline this process using keyboard shortcuts or macros. I haven't used macros much, seems like they could be useful here but I'm not sure how to implement them for this.

I know you can create shortcut like you want with evolve.  You can also just do a match properties from one tag to a different tag if both are near each other.
