Temporary Override Keys

Temporary Override Keys where introduced in AutoCAD 2006. You can modify the keyboard response time for temporary override keys by changing settings in the Windows Control Panel.

To adjust the temporary override key response time

  1. From the Windows Start menu, click Settings > Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel, click Keyboard.
  3. In the Keyboard Properties dialog box, on the Speed tab, drag the Repeat Rate slider to adjust the keyboard response time. Then click OK.


  1. About the temporary override keys, I get a problem when adding a qleader. At the point where I have to enter the first line of annotation, the Temp. override keys take over so I can not write Capital letters. The only way is hitting enter for Mtext.


  2. What AutoCAD version and Service Pack do you have?
    What temporary key takes over?

  3. I run ACA 2009 update 2. The keys that is overriding is the snap keys like shift-e, shift-m, shift-i

  4. I was not able to reproduce this and I tried with different dynamic input settings as well.
