Have a look at a free collection of intuitive, context-sensitive tools to improve productivity in 3ds Max. These tools are said to rely on mouse movement plus modifier keys to perform different actions without the need to use the UI or the dialogs.

They were developed and tested in 3Ds Max 2015, but they should work with newer versions.

Ctrl Shift: Inset, slower increase, snaps to 0 if value is < 0.2

Left Click: Accept
Right Click: Cancel

Chamfer:

Interactive Symmetry Modifier:
If you have an edge or vert selection it will try to guess the direction and plane of the symmetry based on the distance of the selection

Interactive Symmetry Modifier:
If you select a face it will align the symmetry axis to the face normal.

Interactive Set Cylindrical Sides:
Select a loop, run it and make a click to active the tool. It will try to guess the axis of the lathe for you.
