Is there a way to combine following commands in a single key using maybe alias or funckey?
commands to combine:
shape add, right click, assign net..
Hello, Yes there is.
Here is a small macro to do what you need to do.
funckey s "shape add; setwindow form.mini;FORM mini dyns_netname_list"
I assigned it to the s key on my keyboard :)
when you add the macro to your env file and hit the assigned key in Allegro it will pop up a dialog box so you can select the net for your shape. Keep in mind function keys in allegro are case sensitive. Works pretty good.

I tried it and it works fine. but then, is their a way to not select a net on a list?. what I want is to select a pin/rat/shape or any valid object and it will get the net assigned to that object then assign it to the shape that will be create.
In reply to D912349:
Yep you can do it that way too. That's kind of similar to the default action.
Try this instead.
funckey S "shape add; pop net list"
run the hotkey, click your object that has a net and draw the shape you need.
