To change out all the keyboard short-cuts to match my other system (NX)! Same goes for the Radial Popup menu!
Ctrl+B= Hide (Blank) Note: this is actually Hide selected geometry and not a bulk filter! It would be nice to select specific geometry from the screen and Hide it. Not being limited to one type of geometry and then an all or nothing option.
Crtl+W= Show/Hide All by type
Or to get a double click middle mouse button in NX to do the Fit function. I can't recall how many times I'm teaching an NX class and I'm double clicking and wondering why my geometry isn't fitting! Or doing a Ctrl+F in SE and getting the front view!
An old feature, and one that can easily be overlooked.......
When wanting to trim numerous geometry entities in a sketch, a Draft sketch in this example, you can speed the process up by using click + drag, across the geometry, after activating the command. [this also works for "Extend to Next"]

I'm a little late to the party, but the one I wish I had known earlier was showing reference planes while in assemble mode. I don't want to exit, turn planes on and go back into assemble mode, such a waste of time. When you are placing a part and you've selected your first surface, if you hold down the "R" button and select the part (or parts) that you want to see the planes, they will turn on while in assemble mode. They then turn off when you exit assemble mode.
@Trikefreak - I'm not sure about schetches. I know if you click + shift and drag, you can move the part around. Or click + ctrl and drag you can rotate the part around during assemble mode.
I'm open to suggestions, so thanks. Many of my coworkers have their settings set to work different than mine, but whatever they are doing seems to take more mouse clicks, so I'll keep watching for other input.
how do you use the steering wheel to copy parts, tried couple of different ways but nothing seems to work.
Not clear about what you mean by copying 'parts' but normally you keep the Ctrl or Control key pressed while dragging the Steering Wheel Axis to copy the selection in part and sheetmetal environment.
In the assembly mode, Ctrl+dragging an existing part or sub-assembly inserts another instance.
