    Write a macro and assign it to a custom button.

    Thanks for your answer, I finally got it done. But should you always customize user interface before you can keyboard shortcut?

    You customize when it's necessary that's one of the advantages to using a program like AutoCAD. You personalize the program to suit your needs.

    I am working with a lady who's acquired a very long time service in AutoCAD and when she showed me CUI and creating Keyboard Shortcuts yesterday I was thrilled and what you told me about macros I must admit, you both made my day. I learned that macros constitute a programming language, then I looked for the easy way out in learning it, then I found Introduction of Macros Writing by Kate Morrical- AutoCAD, Inc. which is in PDF; it is very informative

    Macros are fine as far as they go but for real programming power you might want to look into the use of lisp routines.
