Q - question

Is it possible to switch between layouts using hotkeys?

A - answer This is not possible with plain AutoCAD. But you can use the free VBA utility by XANADU (CAD Studio) - swLayout.
Then you can switch to Previous and Next Layout using hotkeys - eg. CTRL-F11 and CTRL-F12. Hotkeys can be defined in the ACCELERATORS section in ACAD.MNS file:
[CONTROL+"F11"]_-VBARUN;prevL
[CONTROL+"F12"]_-VBARUN;nextL

You can download this utility from www.cadstudio.cz/download
