Chances are good that some of you have started using it. Maybe a few of you are still trying to figure out the GUI changes and the new features. In this and the next few articles, let's have a quick look at the new features in AutoCAD Architecture Oh boy! Where are my menus? When you start AutoCAD Architecture for the first time, the first thing you will notice is that the Menus are no more. AutoCAD Architecture version is now percent "ribbon oriented.
The first thing you can do is to try the 'menubar' command and set the value to 1. Some will get an error message saying that no menus are defined. One way to solve this is to get into the "Customize User Interface" or CUI dialog and get back the menus from the appropriate "cuix" files.
I found an interesting link in Autodesk Discussion Forums that will guide you. The discussion link: Click here The zip file download link: Click Here Now while doing so, I renamed a few menus with the suffix "classic" because I found differences between the menus and the classic ones.
The file and format menus are good examples. As a user of Windows Vista bit, my cuix files were located here: One can also try to create a single custom format menu. Good or bad, let us make the best of it! The Application Menu Check out this red colored A icon in the top left corner. Clicking this pulldown reveals a set of basic commands that you use frequently.
This menu replaces the Menu Browser, which was found in the earlier version. Check out the two buttons I have circled in the image above. These two buttons will help you to see the recently accessed documents and the currently open documents. As the menu's name implies, all the commands available under it are application-oriented and most frequently used, such as new, open, save, export, print, and so on.
Some commands reveal more options as you click the small right arrow next to the command or just hover the mouse over the command. Here is an example of how the export command reveals more options. Note the two circled areas in the above image. These two small arrows allow you to scroll through more options. Do not neglect the search bar and a few other options as shown in the image below. In this Search bar you can perform a real-time search for commands. Search results can include menu commands, basic tooltips, and command prompt text strings.
You can enter a search term in any language. Here is a sample output as I started searching for the string "wall. Also, you need not remember the full command or text. As you start typing the first few letters, the search engine goes into action and reveals the closest results.
You can arrange the recent document list by type, size, date, and so on using this pulldown. This pulldown gives you options to decide whether the documents should be listed as an icon or image format. You can also control icon size. The ribbon contains a number of tabs; the tabs, in turn, contains panels on which commands are grouped according to conceptual task types or selected objects.
Actually, the ribbon replaces the menu bar and the toolbars as the primary command access point. Even though the ribbon could slow down some new users, I highly suggest you start using the ribbon feature. As you get accustomed to it, you will see great improvement in ease of access.
The most interesting part of the ribbon is that you can completely customize it, create new tabs, panels, and commands that best suit your work needs. In next month's article, we will explore how to customize the ribbon and modify it according to your needs. If you feel that the ribbon occupies too much screen real estate, you can minimize it to the panel titles, and then click again to minimize to the tabs, if required.
You can do this by simply clicking the small arrow button next to the last tab. Some quick tips before we close this month's article The 'Ribbonclose' command will close the ribbon.
The 'Ribbon' command will bring back the ribbon. I suggest not closing the ribbon, but minimizing it instead. The '-toolbar' command will allow you to show or hide all the toolbars. See you all next month with more new GUI features and architectural functions.
