    Hey guys

    I use Ortho (F8) and snap (F9) toggle all the time -- but I would really like to able to use keyboard shortcuts for toggling X/Y/Z individually, as these are by far the most mouse button clicked buttons in my toolbar.

    They keyboard keys X, Y and Z already have some functions assigned, but I think these are generally not very used (my opinion of course).

    X is related to focus positions, rotating truss when inserting and camera lock
    Y is related to toggling Tooltips on and off
    Z is related to zoom fit and rotating truss when inserting

    I have personally never had much reason to use these, but I really would like the ability to lock individual axis.

    What do you guys think?

    Z is quite useful. I would love to keep that. I would say the letters in combination with the ALT key could maybe work?
    Also there are currently no shortcut keys for the Array en Distribute functions. Those deserve better as well don’t you think?

    This has been an ongoing conversation with my self and the guys at cast.
    Drop Cast guys an email and mention which key you think would work or how to switch between toggles.
    I been trying for a three key combination. but if they see that the feature is wanted it may get pushed forward a bit quicker.

    I'd vote for Array, Distribute, and Activate Quick Tools.
