    Posted: 05.Jan.2017 at 05:41
Hi,
I am using AutoCAD 2016 and have had an issue, more than likely my fault, where when I press the F10 (Polar Snap) key, it also activates the Keyboard shortcut small tiles. How do I ONLY have F10 be the Polar Snap without Keyboard shortcut tiles popping up?

ThanksConfused

You must have changed the Keyboard Shortcut for F10 somehow.  In here:
 
 
in mine, which just toggles Polar on/off as expected, the content of that "Macro 1 (Key Down)" slot is:
 
^P'_.autosnap $M=$(if,$(and,$(getvar,autosnap),8),$(-,$(getvar,autosnap),8),$(+,$(getvar,autosnap),8))

Hardly something someone would do accidentally.  One would have thought the OP might remember editing the CUIx?

Yes, I admit it, I did it. I sabotage my own CAD system to post on this forum.

Thank you Kent for the Professional response. I tried what you had suggested but it didn't work as anticipated. What I would like to do is STOP the little quick keys done from pressing ALT key. I would press the F10 key and those little guys would come up along with the normal Polar function. How do I disallow the ALT function or change how it works for my system?

Thanks again,
jhawkdesign

Kent, I figured it out. I typed MENUBAR and set it to <1>. Problem solved!

Thanks again again,
