AutoCAD 2005 Features and Benefits
AutoCAD 2005 significantly increases the flexibility of tool palettes; now you can assign any type of content—including commands, macros, and calls to LISP and ARX routines—to a tool palette. You can take full advantage of toolbar customization work, thereby eliminating the need to maintain and manage toolbars. AutoCAD 2005 supports any number of tool palettes and makes it easy to organize them into logical groups for efficient access.
Standardize drawing content and store customized commands on space-saving, project-specific tool palettes that you can distribute to the entire team.
Customize and organize your tool palettes.
Because AutoCAD software supports an unlimited number of layers in a drawing file or sheet, some organizations have sheets that contain hundreds of layers. Using layers in this way provides flexibility for organizing drawing information, but managing all the individual layers can be difficult.
In AutoCAD 2005, you can now define groups of layers to quickly and easily adjust layer settings, and you can change layer properties for many layers at a time. The new Layer Properties Manager takes up less screen space and is easier and more flexible to use. Plus, you can see the results of changes immediately.
New Layer Properties Manager
Manage layers more efficiently with filters that uniformly apply property changes to all layers in a group.
