I am trying to change a hotkey in version 17 but for some reason no matter what I do it will not work. I am trying to use the "v" key to set the plotter scale for doing text. I have a set text size at 12" scale which changes then to what ever plot scale I am using. I have the MCR set as V^·^È^;^S5^F4^,^É^ and other various ways but it stays at V^·^È^;^S8^S9^¸^É no matter what. I am not sure what I need to input to get it to go to the utility menu rather than the edit menu. I want to keep "V" for go to view and the alt "V" for the plot scale. How do I get this to work?

V^;^..........will get you to the Edit menu
V^:^..........will get you to the Utility menu

I think. It's been a long time since I edited the .mcr file. I hope I am right.

I just realized what the problem was. I copied the file from version 16 and copied it into 17 only the path was still going to 16. Once I corrected that it worked.
