my corner of nowhere particular
I hate AutoCad.
I have a love/hate relationship with AutoCad. It has its uses.
What rev are you using, and what are you using it for?
I am using it in 2D for plan drawings.
I should just revert to MSPaint. It’d probably be easier.
R14? To put this in perspective, that’s the first version released after Windows 95 came out.
What would you say is the source of your frustration?
A lot of it might have to do with my version and my lack of know-how. The source of my frustration was that AutoCAD didn’t prompt me to alert me that I was saving over a previous file. This was surprising, especially since AutoCAD usually prompts me to see if I want to save any file… even if it’s blank.
Can up-to-date AutoCADs be used with a puck or spaceball? And does the scroll on your mouse scroll down? These features are not available in R14.
A mouse with a scroll wheel can be used to zoom in and out by scrolling. Pressing and holding the scroll wheel allows you to pan.
This is true. I’ve watched it done (in Belgium) – it’s 10X as fast as you can hit keystrokes and spacebar for moving around a drawing. Like whoa.
R14 is actually my favorite version… I learned on 13, so, 14 was above and beyond a huge improvement.
I guess you always have a favorite, that you know is horrible, yet still love.
Personally, I like R2D2
Well let me tell you, I have to use AutoCAD for work, and William is my personal product support specialist and helps me with all of my AutoCAD needs. It’s pretty glorious, William taught me all about data extractions just this week. He’s an AutoCAD Genius!
