Autofill AutoCAD Table Cells: Tuesday Tips With Heidi

You can quickly copy cell contents from a selected cell to adjacent cells by clicking the Autofill icon in the lower right corner of the cell and then dragging the cursor across the cells (rows or columns) and clicking in the last cell you want to fill. AutoCAD automatically copies the original contents to all those adjacent cells! And… it gets even better!
