However, in his defense, F8 is a long way to go if you're just using the left hand on the keyboard and the right hand on the mouse.
"Long way to go" from where?  Does he not use 9's or 0's because they are a "long way to go'?  I understand how big a PITB some folks can be, but I think this is a little much, at least it would be for me.  Sorry, But I'd have to drop a rock on this guy.

I wouldn't do that, CADaver. You might crack his ski goggles. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm glad I'm the only one up here right now. I'd be getting a lot of looks otherwise, from laughing so much.

You could load this:

Code: [Select]
(defun c:OM (/ b)
  (setq b (getvar 'orthomode))
  (if (= b 1)
    (progn
      (setvar 'orthomode 0)
      (princ "\n  < O r t h o  i s  O F F >")
    )
  )
  (if (= b 0)
    (progn
      (setvar 'orthomode 1)
      (princ "\n  < O r t h o  i s  O N >")
    )
  )
  (princ)
)


Then redefine an accelerator key to allow for only one keystroke.
Code: [Select]

["F1"]^C^C'om;


Still kinda reinventing the wheel though.

Yeah, I'd tell him I redefined a button for him, the big silver one on the front of the computer case.

Sometimes I am really, really happy that I work by myself.

Note to self: dont drink soda while reading Cadaver's post.  Dr. Pepper has the tendency to make the keys on the keyboard sticky.  ROFLMAO!  Oh and Daron, I just got all the funny looks you were avoiding.

Sometimes the question is more important than the answer. (Thanks Kerry for reminding me)
