Forum: AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & Interface

Troublesome text, units & scales, object snaps, dimensions, annotation, linetypes, toolbars, geometry, measurement...? Help is at hand.

  1. _dimreassociate, is there a quicker way to do an entire drawing?

    Also, is there a way to use a snap to another dimension?
