What about an option for the PLAY/PAUSE button to be controlled with the space bar?
you can actually set a shortcut for that... you can set a shortcut for basically ANY of the controls in Pyware.
The default shortcut to animate is alt+A
but you can modify it to whatever you want.
First go to Utilities and then Shortcut Editor:
Then scroll down to and select the "Animate" function to edit:
Uncheck the box at the top for "Alt" and select the space bar symbol that is highlighted here:
After that is done, you should be able to use the space bar to play/pause the drill animation.
