Description

AutoCAD software users tend to repeat the same task frequently. Something as simple as placing text may require that one sets a specific layer current, then sets a text style current, and then sets the height of the text. This example requires 3 steps before typing the verbiage. Other repetitive tasks can consume even more time. Creating a simple macro will automate processes such as this into one function. Macros can also assist in ensuring that drafting standards are being used. This session will demonstrate how to easily create macros to automate repetitive tasks, and how one can add them to a tool palette for easy access. This session features AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT.
