Example text

In recent years, more and more programs have been able to save in DWG format, but in Autodesk’s eyes, these files are not to be trusted. If you open such a drawing file, you’ll get a warning dialog box and a little yellow danger sign over the trusted DWG icon (make sure you know where your wallet is when you work on one of these files). ✓ Object Isolation: In AutoCAD 2011, you don’t need to turn a layer — and everything on it — off if you want a clearer view of something in a crowded drawing. Now you can select an object and either hide it (so it disappears) or isolate it (so everything else disappears).

Open: Open an existing drawing or sheet set for editing, or import data from a MicroStation DGN file into a new AutoCAD drawing. ✓ Save: Save the current drawing in the current location; if the current drawing hasn’t been saved, you’re prompted for a filename and a location. ✓ Save As: Save the current drawing to a new filename and/or location and make the newly named or located file the current drawing. Also save the drawing as a template (DWT) or standards (DWS) file, or export a paper space layout to a new drawing.

3D Modeling: This Ribbon-based workspace is configured for a 3D modeling environment, with navigation, visualization, and modeling tools suitable for working in 3D. This workspace isn’t included in AutoCAD LT, either. ✓ AutoCAD Classic: This workspace is configured for a 2D drafting environment, with toolbars and tool palette arrangements similar to those in AutoCAD 2008 and earlier. In AutoCAD LT this workspace is called AutoCAD LT Classic. Running with Ribbons Whether you’re running AutoCAD 2011 in Windows 7, Vista, or XP, most of AutoCAD’s default screen (refer to Figure 2-1) is pretty different from traditional Windows fare.
