Do you have an example file of theirs?

It strikes me odd to have been given a CUIx file for something so simple.

If there is a similar project which they have done, and you could get one of those drawings, it would become the basis for your new .dwt file.


If you do a SAVEAS and choose file type .dwt (for a template file).

Using that drawing template later, to create a new file, you would have at least a sampling, or some of their layers already created in your drawing, with colors, linetypes, text styles, multileader styles, dimension styles and lots of other stuff already set up to their tastes. It would help you to hit their ground running.

I would not use their CUIx file.


A CUIx is a Customised User Interface file - it contains a users customised screen and menu layouts, customised commands and shortcuts, etc.

If you load this it will change your menus, etc. to be the same as theirs.


The CUIx does not contain their standard layers or other drawing information, as dadgad says you would need a template, .dwt, drawing for that.


Sounds like your customer is not that familiar with Autocad and/or missunderstood when when you asked for their custom settings.
