Keyboard Input in PropertyManagers

The SOLIDWORKS software now provides better support for keyboard input in PropertyManagers.

You can:

  • Access every control in a PropertyManager by pressing Tab to move from control to control.
  • Use keyboard shortcuts to expand and collapse group boxes, turn check boxes on and off, and select radio buttons.

    For example, you can use the spacebar to toggle check boxes and invoke command buttons.

    You can use arrow keys to move between sets of radio buttons and choose a radio button.
