    Default On-Screen numeric keypad

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Does AutoCad have an on-screen numeric (and symbol) keypad? I would like to be able to mouse-click as many inputs as possible.

    I don't think 2004 has an on-screen calculator. 2009 has QuickCalc.

    You might find a calculator that will work with 2004 within this group of LISP routines posted at cadalyst magazine.

    I was interested in the same type of thing when I started doing a lot of work with AutoCAD on a laptop. I created these Screen Menus for AutoCAD 2000 and have steadily migrated them up to my current 2009.

    The left screen shows a typical accessor screen (in this case from the “Circle” menu). The middle screen was to allow numbers keyed in via mouse click. The right screen is for adding numbers with successive clicks. This made it easier to input 19 11/16, for instance.

    Default Microsoft Keypad

    Thanks for the help. I discovered Microsoft has a keyBOARD in their accesories-accessibility area. It is larger than preferred, but works great.
