  1. scared with modifying the cui so maybe someone can help me. i want to set the rmb (right mouse button) to pan and ctrl+rmb to zoom i.e. just like in rhino.. is this possible and can maybe someone guide me?
  2. How to transfer my custom icons, menus, toolbar in my computer to other computer.
  3. Hey guys, So, I've played around with CUI and haven't found a way to do this, so I thought I'd throw it out to your brilliant minds. I know that F3 toggles all ticked osnaps on/off, but I'd like to create shortcuts to toggle specific osnaps on/off (running osnaps, not temporary). Right now, I have to go down to the bottom toolbar and turn on/off any given osnap. It looks like through CUI you can set a shortcut to turn on a given osnap--but it turns off anything else that's already on. I'd like the existing osnap status (which ones are running) to stay as-is, with only the desired osnap changing to on/off. I hope this makes sense. Thanks, Liz
  4. I used to be able to click and drag the commands from CUI and put them in the ribbons or on the side of the model space, but it won't let me in AutoCAD 2016. In this case I want to bring "Circle, center, Dia" command in model space. Does any body know how? I like to bring in some commands that I need on the screen for convenient.
  5. Hi everyone, I have this window everytime I open AutoCAD 2015 (attached image). I am not the administrator from the computer and maybe that is the reason I have not been able to work it out. I cannot run some lisp routines because this window it is opening every time. can anybody help me? Thanls in advance
  6. I have created a .cuix file that I would like to apply to AutoCAD2015 for each user on the network, so that I do not have to log in under each name and manually transfer in the CUI one at a time. So far I have tried multiple methods for loading the custom .cuix file into AutoCAD on launch, however I am unable to get the workspace to transfer in at all. I have created an acaddoc.lsp file, saved into a support file path, that calls another .lsp file to load in the cuix, based on code I have seen on this forum: (command "cuiunload" "FILENAME" ^C "cuiload" "X:\XX\XXX\FILENAME.cuix" ^C) However my new workspace is never added into the program after successfully calling the LSP when CAD launches. I have also messed around with ARG files and using a switch to call on a script upon launching CAD, although I so far have not had any luck. I am a novice at writing scripts for AutoCAD and navigating the program's folders, so please let me know if I need to provide any more detailed information. I appreciate any help that someone has to offer. Thanks.
  7. What is the different between AMPP and AMACAD? I tried to bring in some tools from CUI and it shows both exact tool twice. Ex: "Break at point" there are 2 sources one is AMPP and other is AMACAD. Which one do you use?
  8. Int the CUI I have created my own shortcut menu. I wish to assign this to the Ctrl+Click Button 2 mouse button. When I do, it also changes the Shift+Click Button 2 to my new shortcut menu which is not what I want. I want to leave ****_Click Button 2 to the Snap default. Any idea what I am doing wrong?
  9. I use a the XLine command frequently when I draft to temporarily define some geometry, and then I Erase the construction lines shortly thereafter. Recently, I’ve been wondering if there is a way to make it so that every time I draw a construction line it is the same color. I understand that I could create a “Construction Lines” layer or adjust the current color before I create them, but I am interested in circumventing those steps altogether. My dream is that every time I start the XLine command regardless of the current layer or color, the construction line that is created is a specified color. That way they are easier to keep straight. It may just be an impossible dream, but given how customizable AutoCAD seems to be at the CUI level, I feel like it might be possible. My efforts to date haven't yielded any fruitful results. Any thoughts?
  10. Hi All, I have created a menu file that contains a ribbon tab. I can load the menu and make sure the pull down and toolbars are visible, but I can't find a way using LISP to make the new ribbon tab visible. I know that I can go to the CUI manager, edit the workspace, tick the ribbon tab and save the workspace, but I need to do all this via lisp on startup. Any and all help greatly appreciated.

  11. I would like to add a custom command to the Text Editing Shortcut Menu but cannot find it in the CUI? I am trying to add a command right between "Update Field" and "Convert Field to Text". Can anybody help me find where to insert this command so it will show up in said shortcut menu?
  12. Hi all - I don't know what happened, but I was CADDing along and now when I double click a hatch, it invokes what I think is the Quick Properties, not the Hatch Edit command. I can still type the Alias "he" and get to it, but I'm used to double clicking and don't see what change. I looked in the CUI, and under Double Click Actions>Hatch, the Hatch Edit command is listed. What gives? THANKS to the community at large, as always.
  13. I'm just learning how to utilize recordable macros. I have a simple one that I found how to assign to a tool palette by simply changing the properties command string to "^C^CBottom" and "^C^CTop". These are the titles of the macros I created. The article I found explaining this said you can also assign a shortcut key using the aliaseditor but it does not recognize it as a valid command. Is there a way to either use the aliaseditor or the CUI to assign a shortcut for these recoded macros? Thanks, -Nobull
  14. The quick acces toolbar some how ended up below the ribbon, even though the CUI states above the ribbon. How can i fix this? On some drawings it is right, but then the properties tab that used to stop below the ribbon, now runs the height of the screen
  15. I made the switch from acad 2006 to 2014. I was able to add quick leader to my dimension menu in customize user interface, but I don't have an icon in my dimensions toolbar. I figured it out, I needed to customize toolbars also, not just menus.
  16. I can't find much info in this so thought I'd ask here... I have a custom CUIX file as our enterprise menu for our CAD standards and settings and with it have MNL file to auto, demand load LISPs. It works fine for me as an admin but not for others. I've looked into the problem and it seems to be that it's related to fact rhat the folder access rights are set to read only. Does any one know why this would be a problem, as everybody can see and open the file in Notepad and can find it using (findfile "company.mnl") in AutoCAD. I can't understand why then AutoCAD says it failed to load the MNL file. Any ideas? TIA
  17. Hope this is the correct furum. Running ADT2006. Is there a method a creating custom tooltips. Simular to osnap, when cursor hovers over a object and "endpoint" "midpoint" etc. shows up, I would like to have it show the objects Layer. Rather then selecting the object, I would like to hover over the object to detects its layer, before selecting, to select "object on destination layer". This can be inserted into my lisp routine or as a separate routine or part of a cui programing.
  18. Hello, Firstly,Sorry for my English and I admit I'm addicted to making enhancements in CAD drawing I'm looking for quiet simple way to copy current layout and move it to end using only some commands. I know "Move or Copy..." dialog box method but I need to do exactly the same thing using commandline. What for? I've prepared little button which places boundary of viewport in model space and copies current layout with increased number like 'Layout1 (2)'. It's very useful with long maps projects (for example: creating 200 same layouts of trace/route). Button works fine except placing duplicated layout tab behind current one. So generating another copy of layout I get reversed order. I don't know is it clear so let me explain: my first layout is named 'Sheet(1)' duplicating with my button, after this I have two tabs: 'Sheet(1)' 'Sheet(2)' duplicating with my button again, after this I have three tabs: 'Sheet(1)' 'Sheet(3)' 'Sheet(2)' As you can see 'Sheet(3) is misplaced and performing action again and again gives ...'Sheet(5)' ..(4) ..(3) ..(2)... With hundreds of layouts I need to rearrange them somehow. With publish option is so painful . Button is based on this tip and using this command: [font=helvetica][font=courier new]^C^C_pspace;_boundary;[color=red]100[/color],[color=red]100[/color];;_chspace;_l;;_layout;_c;;;[/font][/font] Note that works only on viewports that are placed somewhere about 100x100 units (it doesn't matter on layouts with only one maximized vport bigger than 100x100 - red values in code above). I am not geek yet so I don't know how to find any command performed by dialog box - maybe debug, but how? I am using AutoCAD LT so VBA or LISP is disabled for me. Please help if it possible.
  19. Hi, i'm italiann i'm sorry for my bad english: i'll try to explain my question better i can i wish to migrate all default icons of AutoCAD2007 to AutoCAD2014: i' ll wish to overwrrite default icons of 2014 with icons 2007 is it possible?> i know that i can do this with cui save every icon in a bmp file and sustitute every icon of 2014 with bmp file of 2007.... but i think it s so boring to do... does it exist any faster mode? thanks in advance for answers P.S. i tried to export in a cui file all default toolbar of 2007: ii opened it in 2014... but icons are 2014 default!!!! same file cui opened in 2007 and 2014 has different icons images!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  20. I'm trying to get my content center library from 2012 to 2013. I'm not having any luck with Autodesk's help. Supposedly it's as easy as Start Menu, All Programs, Autodesk, AutoCAD Mechanical 2013, "Migrate from a previous release" but that part in quotes is not an option. Instead I have "Export AutoCAD 2013 settings" and "import 2013 settings. I've successfully exported my ACAD 2012 settings using this strategy but when I try to import, nothing happens and my settings do not transfer. I've also tried using the CUIX transfer dialog box but that thing is a complete mystery to me. Also, I don't see an option to transfer content center library content within the CUIX transfer dialog box. How have you transferred settings in the past?
  21. Hi there. I've created a .cui file for my business unit, but I'm having an issue which I'm not sure how to solve. I have created a pull down with text scales and dims scales, so depending on the scale of drawing you are using, you will always have a uniform text to use. (Annotative text can't be used due to client restrictions). Now, I originally had the text set to romanS, but upon a discussion, we now need to use arial narrow. It looks better and takes up less room, apparently. CAD doesn't have an SHX file for this, so I have used the Windows TTF and renamed it to arialn, as that is the system name for it, but when reloading the .cui with this simple text alteration, it has reduced all my custom icons to clouds with question marks, and will only give me text in arial, not arial narrow. If anyone has had an issue like this before and knows of a solution, please let me know. I would be very grateful. Thank you.

    Hi guys. I wonder if anybody could help me? I need to add certain menus and applications into CAD, but I haven't done work like this for so long, my mind has gone blank. I need to know where to place the following files within the standard CAD directory, so when I load the cui file, it will know where to take the information from. This is all inherited, so I understand if it isn't as simple as I hope it will be! The files are: .dll .cui .mnr .stb .mnl .xml + a standard titleblock .dwg Obviously, if just placing them in directories isn't going to work, then I'll have to get in touch with the company that originally created the files. I just wanted to avoid doing that if possible. Thanks, I hope you can help.
  23. Ok, in CUI I have created a custom workspace and brought in 4 partial customization files. Created the Tabs and have created the Panels in each of the Tabs. All works well. I am now editing the panel button macros so that when a pump or a valve is chosen, its respective layer automatically changes. All is good so far. Now I need to duplicate what I have done on another station without changing 45 macros again. I know I can export the environment and have it import on the other station, that works fine. I only want to copy those files I have edited and move them to the other station. Any thoughts are welcome. This applies to those who are working with more than one workstation wanting to keep the same system capabilities the same on all. Thanks!
  24. Hi all, I've been using AutoCAD for about 15 years, so I'm pretty familiar w/ most of it's ins and outs. I've been looking for a little faster way of changing the current layer I've on to another way. I've customized the "mouse bottons" in the CUI to "Ctrl+Click" to intialize the "Make Object's Layer Current" command. However, I was wondering if there is a way to make it work more like Photoshop. In Photoshop, when you are using the paint bucket tool and you want to change your color to another color that is already in the picture, you press "Alt+Left Click" to select the color, and when you release the "Alt" button it goes back to the paint bucket and you just color the item you want that color. Similarly, I would like to make AutoCAD do this by using "Ctrl+Left CLick" at any point to change to the layer I'm on to a layer that I select, with out actually intiallizing a command. i could of started a line command or no command, press "Ctrl" and click on the object that I want my current layer switched to and it's done. Hope this is not too confusing. If there's a way to do it in the CUI, I'm ok with that, or even a LISP would work too. THanks for your help. Mike
  25. Hi, I'm just transitioning from PC (AutoCAD 2007) to MAC (AutoCAD 2011) and now fumbling my way through setting up all my customizations again. For the life of me, I can not work out how to customize Short Cut keys! On PC in the CUI box you drag and drop the relevant command up above to the CUI window ontop the little shortcut keys icon then, set your new Access Keys in the box on the right, then bingo! EASY. But on MAC, does this even exist??? I am completely self taught on CAD, only work in 2D, and only use a fraction of its full capabilities. Admittedly, I never have had to write LISP's, or do any text based coding/customization. The simple shortcuts I am trying to achieve are: MOVE - Shift + V ROTATE - Shift + R TRIM - Shift + T FILLET - Shift + F STRETCH - Shift + G Match Properties - Shift + 4 Layer Isolate - Shift + 3 Close - Crtl + W ANY help or a working example of how to achieve this would be HUGELY appreciated! Thank you, Matt
