Sample text

In the real world, you may work with people, probably from other companies, who use AutoCAD releases as old as AutoCAD 2006 — or even older. Many programs claim to be DWG compatible — that is, capable of converting data to and from AutoCAD’s DWG format. But achieving this compatibility is a difficult thing to do well. Even a small error in file conversion can have results ranging in severity from annoying to appalling. Every time you open a drawing file, AutoCAD checks its parentage and warns you if the drawing was created by a non-Autodesk program.

I mention the SteeringWheel in Chapter 12 but point out here that it’s of little use in 2D drafting — which, unfortunately, is all that AutoCAD LT users can do with it. ✓ Pan and Zoom: These buttons provide access to two commonly used display commands, PAN and ZOOM.

It puzzles newcomers and delights AutoCAD aficionados. Despite the promise of AutoCAD’s heads-up dynamic input, for now at least, the hard truth is that you have to come to like — or at least tolerate — the command window if you want to become at all comfortable using AutoCAD.
