Shortcut Menus

When sketching, the shortcut menu is longer so it displays more sketch and relations tools for ease of use and improved workflow.

Additionally, you can customize the shortcut menu by selecting which tools should be immediately accessible in the shortcut menu and which tools should be accessible after you expand the shortcut menu.

In a sketch, right-click to display the shortcut menu. In the shortcut menu, click Chevron_down.gif, then Customize Menu to edit the menu.
