Productivity Killer #1

You know the drill... you're on a roll, the creative juices are flowing... and then you have to stop and hunt for a command or a block.


You finally find it, but that 30 second distraction was all it took to derail the creative "Flow" you had going.


Distractions like this are huge productivity killers. But with tool palettes, you can nicely lay out and organize your tools so they're right where you need them, when you need them.

Productivity Killer #2

You just added a block to your drawing but once again, you forgot to switch to the correct layer before inserting it


Whoops! The Layer isn't even there yet! Now you not only have to move the block, but you have to create the layer first.


This could have been avoided if you pulled your block from a tool palette!





Here's some of what you will learn...

  • How to store color, layer, text style, dim style and other information with a block, hatch or command on a tool palette.
  • How to automatically create missing layers, text styles, line-types, dim styles and more when using commands and blocks on a tool palette.
  • The power of the "right-click"... you'll be surprised at what you've been missing!
  • How to add instructional text notes onto tool palettes.
  • How to create groups of your favorite palettes, and switch among them with only two mouse-clicks.
  • How to use tool palettes to help maintain CAD standards throughout your office.
  • How to share tool palettes on your network, and also protect them from being tampered with by other users.
