    Ever wonder if there's an easier way to ensure that all drawing production staff members have equal access to the company's CAD standards? This class will be an overview of a variety of configuration, productivity, and management solutions that you can deploy using AutoCAD software's Tool Palettes. Tool Palettes should not be limited to sourcing warehoused block/symbol libraries; they can also facilitate company-specific CAD software configurations, along with a multitude of other tools, to assist CAD managers with the elimination of inconsistencies across workstations, projects, and even offices. Tool Palettes can easily become the "one-stop shop" for sourcing preconfigured, controlled content, and the mechanism to configure AutoCAD-based software for the required environment. There will be additional discussions on quick access for discipline- and project-specific toolsets, including troubleshooting/support tools, through the use of "live" tool palettes.
