Create Your Own Revit Shortcuts:

You can easily program your own Revit keyboard shortcuts. To do so, go to View > User Interface > Keyboard Shortcuts or type “KS”.

This will open the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog box.

All of the default keyboard shortcuts are listed. Any shortcut listed in gray is a system shortcut and cannot be changed. To add a shortcut, find the command in the “Command” column or enter the command name in the “Search” field. Once you’ve selected the command, enter the shortcut combination in the “Press new keys” text box then click the “Assign” button.

You have a lot of flexibility in assigning shortcuts. A single command can have multiple shortcuts. Likewise, a single shortcut can be used on multiple commands. In this case, you use the arrow keys to cycle through the commands as displayed in the status bar. Once you have the command you want, press the space bar to execute the command.
