Alternative Interfaces

 

KeyCreator installs sets of customization files for two alternative interfaces designed for long-term users accustomed to previous product generation default interface settings. The alternative interface customization files include workspaces, keyboard shortcuts, file templates, and several options settings.

The simplest way to reconfigure KeyCreator with one of  these interfaces is to use the corresponding KXL settings program using Add-ins>Play Macro/KXL. Each interface comes in American and International flavors to supprt the desired units system and drafting standard.
