There are hundreds of ways to do things easier in Civil 3D these days.  One of the coolest new features is the Quick Access Toolbar.  It has been around for a few releases, but nothing like it is with 2011.  If you have a command that you use frequently, all you have to do is drag it to the Quick Access Toolbar and it will remain there until you don’t want it there anymore.
