2. Edit file for path to where you wish to store text files on your computerItem 2 Opens notepad for “C:\Users\CURRENT USER\Documents\PowerKey4Revit\RevitProductivityUserSettings.ini” file. This allows you to put in location of where you want your text note files to be located for easy access. This may be on a LAN (Local Area Network) drive so you can share with others, or on your own PC.
3. Backup (Export) your current Keyboard Shortcut File & Merge new Keyboard Shortcut File
To make sure you keep your original Keyboard Shortcuts its best to save your KeyboardShortcuts.xml file.
First, type “KS” and this will bring up the Keyboard Shortcut dialogue box in Revit, then use the export button in bottom right hand corner of the popup to Export your KeyboardShortcuts.xml file to a safe place (that you can find it again)
You will then, after you install the Setup.exe file find another file here C:\Users\Current User\Documents\PowerKey4Revit\KeyboardShortcutsRevitProductivity.xml that you will import and MERGE with your existing setup.
In Revit Keyboard Shortcuts can be up to 5 DIGITS long, so my PowerKey4Revit\KeyboardShortcutsRevitProductivity.xml file tend to have longer names to minimise conflict with your existing Keyboard Shortcuts, there may be times where there are clashes. I would suggest you advise me & remove that particular Keyboard Shortcut from your workflow.
Keyboard Shortcuts file needs to be imported and updated- Select Merge as OPTION. You can then merge my added Keyboard Shortcut s to your existing , or the original KeyboardShortcut.xml
I would recommend you export this file as a separate backup too.
