You can also disable the VIEWPORT CONTROLS in the lower left corner, on your 3D Modeling Tab in Options.

 

You may want to play around with your Crosshairs too.

I don't see a setting for that 1. It would nice to get rid of it also. -David

No doubt you have figured out how to kill the NAVCUBEDISPLAY, by setting the variable to .

 

I can't get this setting to stick to 0. Any ideas ?

Go back and look at post #15 again, as I added a screenshot from the SYSVDLG which may help you .

Are you looking on the 3D Modeling tab? Lower left, as shown in the earlier screenshot (post #21).

When I first posted, I misstated, as I thought it was on the Display Tab, but was wrong.

It is saved in the Drawing, I use ACADDOC.lsp to set Drawing sysvars.

Save your settings with a new Profile name on the Profile Tab in Options.

Lot's of people prefer old tools and technology for some good reasons.

Some because they just don't like change.

Others because they have difficulty learning.

Some of these people that resist changing resort to petty insults for who knows what reason.

 

Well said.

 

Agreed -

 

RobDraw's perfectly stated the behavior I observe since switching from a super massive employer, to a small 10 person shop.

 

Not that large firms do not also suffer same on some level, but generally speaking, they inherently have a different perspective on the adoption of newer technologies than a small outfit (among other characteristics)... There's was certainly a lot less b!#%&ing when upgrades became available. Haha

If you want your commandline background to be white as shown earlier, you can set that up on your Display Tab in OPTIONS, as shown in the screenshot. You can define all of the colors for the numerous different elements. Not sure, what Restore classic colors will do, might just be what you favor.

Unfortunately, that also changes DBMOD, meaning you get prompted to save an otherwise unmodified drawing.

Although you can't control existing drawings, you can set drawing saved sysvars in your template to avoid this situation there (if desired)

I do use the status bar coordinates quite a lot.

 

In the original DOS releases, the status bar was at the top of the screen and hidden by popup menus when the mouse was there. -David

Not a big deal to me, I do majority of work in existing drawings not of my creation. Thumb button on mouse is enter, so I can just click away and close at the prompt.

 

Template is fully set up, but doesn't help with existing drawing.

Give it a shot Bethel, you may just like it. Remember, the Ribbon is very easily customizable. -TZ

Thank all that is good for AutoCAD 2009 SP3, as prior to that, the Ribbon was _NOT_ customizable at all! :facepalm:

Good catch BB. To clarify: the current Ribbon is very easily customizable.
