Programming to simplify my operation
Lund33n posted a topic in The CUI, Hatches, Linetypes, Scripts & MacrosI am a sales rep for a manufactured steel product. I have done CAD drawings for 7 years, but we had a program/lisp/i don't know what you call it set up to make the drawings much easier and faster. I think I attached an example of my draftings, as you can see they are pretty simple. What I'm looking for is someone that can. 1. Make an autoplot program that works w/ the Item 2 2. Make borders, that are scalable in Model space. (letter, ledger, Arch C, and Arch D) w/ my title block 3. Make a set scale function that changes all text types size automatically this should be linked in some way to the borders 4. Creates quick key/type commands for the following: a. line b. copy c. move d. normal text e. title sytle text f. dimensioning (leaders and horizontal/vertical) plottting organize a line weight color scale All my drawings are two dimensional. Please note i am a salesmen and don't know understand CAD tech speak. DWR-OLYMPIC_n_HILL_PRELIM-WALL-PLAN_Rev-1-LADBS.pdf
Lost commands from mouse right click pop-up menu and delete key
kduke posted a topic in AutoCAD Bugs, Error Messages & QuirksAutoCAD Architecture 2012 It's happened again... Not sure if I actually did anything this time, but I opened the cui file but didn't change anything. The problem is that when in a drawing and I right-click the mouse and the pop-up menu opens, I am missing commands like draw order and edit(s) also the copy to clipboard doesn't work right. In addition I noticed that I lost the delete key function on the keyboard. Does anyone know how to fix this...
Autocad on Mac (Lion) running in Parallels via Windows XP (and keyboard shortcuts).
Leave Me Here posted a topic in AutoCAD Beginners' AreaNot sure if I am the only person in the world that has tried this - But I recently installed Autocad (2007) within the Windows XP environment on my MAC (Lion) running through Parallels. And it sucks. Just waaay too erratic, mouse is all jumping, couldn't even imagine trying to draft a real job. Why would I even bother doing this when there is Autocad for Mac??? One simple reason - for the life of me, and as far as I understand, there is no simple way in Autocad for MAC to customise keyboard shortcuts the way you can within your CUI in Autocad for PC. Its just insane. I live on my keyboard shortcuts, and can't efficiently draft without them. And no, I couldnt load my PC saved CUI on my Mac Autocad either. I am completely self taught, and maybe I am missing something, but surely there is a way to customize the MAC version the way you can in PC???? Ie - I want: SHIFT+V = MOVE SHIFT+R = ROTATE SHIFT+4 = MATCH PROPERTIES etc ehh. Any discussion on this would be much appreciated!!
