Do you have to work with different drawing versions? Or maybe you mostly have to send your DWG files in older file format? You can set to save the files to older file format version, by default.
-As you know, PDF is the standard file format used in document exchange, given its wide compatibility.
-The PDF file contains valuable information required for your CAD work.
-In this tutorial, we’ll see how to compare similar objects on current drawing.
-For example, if you have similar design concepts.
-And you want to analyze what are the differences between them.
-Today let’s perform a very useful tool to compare between two drawing files.
-For example, if you received a modified drawing from your project team.
-But you don’t know what objects have been modified from your original version.
-There are different ways to count big or small amount of blocks in a current drawing.
-If you need to know the total amount of blocks?
-You can call the Properties palette.
-In this tutorial, let’s see how to create and interrelate an Excel table from drawing objects.
-Did you know that you can perform area/length and block quantity calculation with Autoxlstable?
You may occasionally find yourself in a situation where the NEW, OPEN, and SAVE commands do not provide a dialog.
What happened with the drawing? why the texts are missing? Don’t
This is actually a setting to simplify the drawing appearance. By simplifying the text appearance, you can work with drawing faster. The system variable that responsible for this appearance is QTEXTMODE. You can turn it on/off by typing QTEXTMODE. Value 1 means it is active and 0 is inactive (default). So use it only when you don’t work with text. This system variable is stored in drawing, so it’s drawing specific. Not for all drawings.
