This shortcut key combination will display context menu for snap overrides quickly. Try to hold [shift] then right click. Release, then press [E] to activate end point snap.

2. Hold [shift] for temporary ortho mode

Holding this key while you draw will activate temporary ortho mode. Exactly like when you activate ortho mode by pressing [F8]. But this is just temporary.

3. Holding [shift] while chamfering and filleting

By holding shortcut key [shift] when using chamfer or fillet, the distance or radius value will be overridden, which means 0 (zero) value will be executed.

4. Holding [shift] while using trim/extend

When using trim, sometimes we want to extend other objects to the same reference. You don‟t have to finish your trim session, and activate extend to do it. Just hold [shift], then trim will be inverted to extend command. This work on the other way when extend command is active, it becomes trim.
