Is there a way to set an SCV to auto-repair, or a carrier to auto-build interceptors completely with hotkeys?

I believe the question is also interesting for standard hotkeys but I use grid hotkeys.

    do both of the answers below work? why upvotes on both very different answers?

Actually it's alt + key

One nice usage of it (besides of auto-repair and auto-making inteceptors for Carrier) it's an auto-unborrow on banelings so they unborrows as some unit is nearby thus acting like landmine without need to control them.


The hotkey for autocasting an action is the action's hotkey with Ctrl.

If R is the hotkey for Repair, Ctrl-R will be the hotkey to toggle Repair autocasting.
