  1. 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
  2. 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 wri
  3. Hi Guys I have recently bought autocad 2012 for mac after years on 2006 on windows. I have lots of custom blocks that I have made over the years and want to transfer them to my mac version. On previous versions it used to be simple customize/transfer tab/ then open. This version does not appear so simple! If someone could help it would be much appreciated!! Thanks!!
  4. Hi I have created some cuix files that i want to load automatically when a user boots autocad. for this i have created a acad.lsp file in one of my search/support directories with the following code and therefore when i start cad it loads the menu file. ^C^C^P(command "menuunload" "CUSTOMMENU" "_.menuload" "CUSTOMMENU.cuix") Great apart from it doesnt appear. The command line reads: "Customization file loaded successfully. Customization Group: CUSTOMMENU" so its loaded and if i go to either cuiload or QUICKCUI i can see it and edit /unload it. The only ways i can get it to appear
  5. Hi, I want to know if I can get a compacted guide into quickly and effectively save all my autocad settings in a computer to be used elsewhere. My personal settings include: 1. alias 2. autolisp that are loaded in the cui 3. an escape autolisp that is part of the right click context edit menu 4. re-arrangement of short cut menu (i.e addition of dimension linear, dimension aligned, plot) 5. new menu with new macros 6. option profiles 7. plot styles 8. hatches 9. libraries of block 10. palette 11. workspace I know the list is long and can be longer and most of the tim
  6. Dear CAD programmers, As you know when commands called from AutoLISP code, dialog boxes are suppressed and the command prompts for data entry from command line. Some of these commads for instances are "LAYER", "ARRAY", "BLOCK", "BOUNDARY", "PLOT", etc. Some of these commands with dual behaviuor, has different results, one of them is "CUILOAD". Could any one show a way to load a customization group into AutoCAD menus, and force it to view all its menus (Toolbars, Menus, Ribbons)? Sorry if I am not totally clear... Indeed English is my third language (after Persian and Azeri):wink:.
  7. I've got three docked palettes on the right of my screen (Properties, Sheet Set, and Xref) and I'm trying to set their heights. If I just drag them to the size I want they do not keep this size when I re-open Autocad, or when I close all files (so that all the palettes but Sheet Set close) and then open a new one. In either case when the UI loads again the palettes seem to negotiate amongst themselves what sizes they want to be. Once they do this they don't change again, but they won't keep the size I set. I have tried setting the heights in CUI but the palettes either don't respond, o
  8. Hi y'all, I would like to modify or replace all the original command like Text, MText, Hatch, all Dimension, Leaders, etc... is it possible to modify them so that when i type, for exemple "MT" on the command prompt, its automaticaly go on the good layers? Thanks!
  9. Afternoon. I've got a little problem trying to make a menu command to load a partial customisation file. I've created ths macro: ^C^C_filedia;0;menuload;N:/CAD/2D/blahblahblah.cuix;filedia;1; ...which seems to run fine and loads the CUI, but the popdown menu defined herein will not display on the menubar. I've also tried the same thing in LiSP: (command "filedia" "0" "menuload" "N:/CAD/2D/blahblahblah.cuix" "filedia" "1") ...but with the same result. When typing the commands in manually one-by-one it displays fine. It's just when I try to automate it it fa

  13. Hello everyone. Ive been trying to change my osnap shortcuts so 'snap to endpoint = ctrl+e,' 'snap to intersection = ctrl+x' etc... Currently they are set to shift + e and shift + x respectively. When I go into the key input area of a shortcut in the CUI it opens the window for me to input a new shortcut key combination for the command. When I press CTRL nothing is entered into the input box, I even tried using ALT to start off the shortcut and that did not work either. The only key that works for shortcut combinations is SHIFT. Which doesn't work anyway, because obviously when Im i
