Li algo relativo ao lançamento do Autocad 2006 em março:
Wishing for AutoCAD 2006
Users wrote in to Ralph Grabowski's ezine with several things they would like to see in AutoCAD 2006, when it comes out in March. The problem is that some of their wishes are already in AutoCAD, and in some cases have been around for several releases.
This is one of the problems with wish lists....something that AUGI combats when they submit their wish list to Autodesk every year. A lot of people submit wishes for features that Autodesk already has. One more argument for better training among users.
For example, one of Ralph's readers asked for a way to create arrowheads without a leader. The best way I know is to use the PLINE command.
Start the PLINE command.
Set the W to 0 for the tip of the arrowhead.
Pick the point for the arrowhead tip.
Change the W to 0.4 or whatever thickness you want for the arrowhead base.
Pick the end point for the arrowhead.
Another reader complained that they are unable to zoom or pan in the middle of commands. Again, this is a training issue as you have been able to do "transparent zooming and panning" in the middle of commands for a while now...it is especially easy if you have a mouse with a scroll wheel...press down on the wheel to pan, turn the wheel up/down to zoom.
On the complaint side, several readers complained about the fact that AutoCAD 2000 and beyond saves the printer/plotter setting with the drawing. This is annoying when someone sends you a drawing and you have to reset the plotter. This has happened to me, as well. Frankly, it didn't bug me all that much.
Readers also weighed in against the new "jazzy" icons that were unveiled in 2005. They are too hard to read for baby boomer eyes...the old icons were a lot easier to make out for those of us over 40. While other software companies, like Microsoft, are adapting their software for older users, Autodesk doesn't seem to be paying attention. You can set your toolbars to Large Buttons.
Go to Options.
Select the Display tab.
Under Window Elements, enable Use large buttons for toolbars.
You may decide you liked the toolbars smaller, but the larger toolbars are definitely easier to see.
