NX - Keyboard Shortcuts in NX
There are many keyboard shortcuts in NX that can help speed up your design and manufacturing processes.  Keyboard shortcuts save mouse travel and reduce the number of mouse clicks needed for a variety of functions in NX.  There are many predefined keyboard shortcuts within the system.  You can also customize the system to create your own keyboard shortcuts.  The steps below will show you where to locate the keyboard shortcuts that are already defined in the system and how to create your own keyboard shortcuts:

1)  Many common NX functions have keyboard shortcuts already assigned.  The keyboard shortcut can be seen in the "Tool Tip".  This example shows that "Ctrl+Alt+T" is the shortcut to orient to the Top view:

4)  In the Customize dialog, select "Keyboard...":
