  • When you are using a dialog box or a ribbon bar, use the [O] key as a shortcut for OK and the [P] key for Apply.
  • When you use a keystroke combination of the [Alt] key plus another key to initiate a Mastercam function, you must hold down the [Alt] key while pressing the other key. If you press the [Alt] key, release it, and then press the other key, you may get unintended results. For example, if you hold down the [Alt] key and press [T], it will toggle the toolpath display. However, if you press the [Alt] key, release it, and then press [T], it will open the Toolpaths drop down menu.
