Learn how to create keystroke-saving functions, delete and redefine commands, load Customize User Interface (CUI) files, set workspaces, control system variables, call external programs, and more, using AutoLISP programming language via a proven sample environment. Next, learn how to call the AutoLISP functions from toolbars, ribbons, and palettes, and learn to control the AutoCAD software profile/environment variables to manage plot configurations, palettes, and support directories. Finally, we will discuss how you can use these tricks to control multiple workstations via your network. If you've ever wanted to know more about how AutoLISP programming language can help you manage your AutoCAD software tools, you don't want to miss this class. Note: This class assumes you have a working knowledge of CUI customization and tool palette usage. A basic knowledge of AutoLISP programming language is also helpful.
