Using the methods described in the lecture section (Course IT 11444) you’ll learn how to implement 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. We will show examples of embedding AutoLISP functions in toolbars, ribbons, and palettes, along with concepts for controlling profile-configuration parameters like plotter directories from network locations. 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. 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.

Key Learnings
