AUTOCAD TIPS AND TRICKS
1— AUTOSCALE SETTING
== Quickly adjust the default scale factor by setting the Aux scale factor to either the DIM or Plot Scale.
== This command allows you to set the application to load each time you open AutoCAD.
== This is for changing the properties and order of block definitions.
== This is a perfect command for creating a 3D box and defining its height, depth, and width.
== Lets you split an object into two by drawing a line through it. Use the BOUNDARY command to come up with correct sizes of polylines in each half, and erasing all original objects.
== This is the command to use if you want to explode a block object while maintaining all its attributes.
== This is for quickly changing the case of your letters without retyping MText.
== If you do not want to waste time when changing the color layer for future objects, lines or blocks, try this.
9–Ctrl + R
== This is for changing paper space viewports.
== Switching back to the old style of XREFs
== This shortcut lets you choose a specific viewport to view texts or objects, in order to transfer objects in a drawing from a layout to model space.
== Type this command if you want to create a dimension whose starting point is the baseline of an earlier dimension. This trick is applicable to all kinds of dimensions including linear, coordinate and angular.
== Align dimensions to staggered objects in cases where DIMALIGNED cannot work.
== Quickly adjust curve smoothness of solid objects using this command.
== Simply set this value to 1 or 0 if you want to be able to open dialogue boxes in AutoCAD, or do everything in the command line, respectively.
== This is one of the quickest ways to crop any image in your drawing
== This command enables you to display point coordinates throughout the worksheet, thus letting you easily track the location of various objects within your worksheet.
18–IMPORTING BLOCK DEFINITIONS
== Keep definitions in your drawing for later referencing. Simply enter the INSERT command, select a file and press the ESC button when the first prompt appears.
== If you want to edit many parallel lines at once, this is the command to use.
