Yeah I don't think that is possible without custom programming. because that is s not a function that works outside of the tree manager

The tree must be open and the main tab must be selected.... maybe by creating a own lob file and call that?

I dug into the available LOB files and is seems to be simple.

Create a file in de config or group folder called topext.men and give it the following content:

Code: Select all

Bemet {
  "Edit in tree" = $TOPHOME/d/tree/l/edit ; 
}
If you startup TopSolid you will get a "Bemet" textmenu with a "Edit in Tree" command.
Now go to tools-options-shortcut key and select Bemet as the Family. Select the "Edit in Tree" command and press your desired shortcut-key.

If the tree is open it stays open, flips to main tab and shows the element to edit.
If the tree is closed it will open, flips to main tab and shows the element to edit.

Klaar is Rene (en Kees ook). Image

Almost there / Bijna klaar

I created a topext.men it in the GROUP folder.

Also created the shortkey

When pressing it it says: Unable to open file (C:\Missler\V616\d\tree\l\edit".lob). :?:

Aaaagghh sorry made a mistake. Please remove the " behind edit in the topext.men file. Restart TopSolid.
I also changed my previous post.

Hi CAD

You may try the following in the topext.men

Code: Select all

	#Men#MyCommand
		{
		#"Edit in tree" = $TOPHOME/d/tree/l/edit 10" ; 
	}
See you
