    Default When you have lots of Drawings open

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Can someone tell me how to sort out the "Windows" task pane when you have say 10 different drawings open, they are named: E01, E02, M01, M02, H01, H02.

    I want it to show the drawings in order such as E01, E02 then H01, H02. At the moment it just shows them randomly. Is there any way of doing this?

    Hi RobDraw,

    Explain how you mean "Drag and Drop"

    Let me paint a picture for you.


    I open say like 10 different drawings, they have the names E01, E02, M02, M03, E03, E04

    Then when I click the Window tab on the top right, it has the list of drawings open:

    It shows it as:

    E01
    E02
    M02
    M03
    E03

    how do I make it so it goes

    E01
    E02
    E03
    M02
    M03

    Drag = Hover over the drawing that you would like to move. Press left mouse button and hold. Move cursor to desired location.

    Drop = Release the left mouse button.

    I don't know if this will work for you or not. It's just the first thing that I would try.

    Hopefully someone has an answer to it, as it would really speed up my work.

    There are several to access open drawings within AutoCAD, if that helps.

    Are you talking about the recent files list under the File button, or the Files Tabs within the AutoCad upper menu bar?

    The Files Tabs default to order opened, but can be ordered any way you like by drag&drop. The Recent Files list on the Files button cannot be altered, except by quantity in your Options menu.
