Early this week, I teach a class about AutoCAD 2013 Overview. Yes I know, AutoCAD 2014 is already released. But they purchased AutoCAD just before it released. And they don’t want to install AutoCAD 2014 yet.
Long story short, they are occasional users who used AutoCAD 2005 before. AutoCAD 2013 doesn’t have that much new features. So the class was finished in one hour.
But because they are AutoCAD 2005 users, I gave them chance to ask what do they think difficult to do in AutoCAD. Probably AutoCAD has new feature in 2006-2012 that they never know. They miss 8 versions, they miss a lot!
They asked many things.
Is it possible to create schedule in AutoCAD?
Is there easier way to set annotation size?
Can I batch plot my drawings?
They are very excited when I show them publish, annotation scaling, data extraction, etc.
What do you want to do in AutoCAD?
You probably know many of the answers. But not all of us are power user. Some of us just use AutoCAD a few hours a week. Some use it mostly for reviews.
So I think you probably also have questions if it is possible to do in AutoCAD. I will try to answer your questions, focus on vanilla AutoCAD features.
I will not suggest or respond to AutoLISP or other programming solution. You can do almost anything if you go to AutoLISP way. That’s not what I want to achieve. Especially because I’m not good in programming.
