Tip #5 - Autodesk Inventor 2012 – Customize Marking Menu

The marking menu, as far as I am concerned is one of the great new features in Inventor 2012. One of the things that will always come up is, “I don’t use that command, how can I change it?”, well here I will explain how to change it.

First, Right-Click on the upper ribbon bar, and choose Customize User Commands.

Next, choose the Marking Menu Tab. The Marking Menu will change according to which environment you are in, but you can change them all from one screen. Up at the top is a drop-down called environment, under that is the environment that you want to change. Click on the button that you want to change in the “Select Menu Location” area, then on the right choose the command that you want it changed to and there you have your new command.

Also, you can change what the marking menu looks like. By default it is shown with Icons & Text, like shown above. Here is the marking menu with no icons, Text Only. You can change this setting in the lower left hand corner.

Also, for the people that don’t like the marking menu at all, there is the “Classic Context Menu” option. This can be changed in the lower right hand corner, but don’t get used to it because we know what happens after a couple releases to the “Classic” option, it will eventually go away.

I am also including a video to show how it is done.
