Filters And Settings
In an effort to find a few bright spots in the Layer Properties Manager introduced in AutoCAD 2005, this month I look at a couple workable features in the Filter Tree side of that dialog box. And since very few of us work in a vacuum, somewhere along the line you will receive a drawing using a different plot style table than yours. There`s a very simple solution to that. There`s also a very simple solution to drawing and editing objects without using @distance

For the last several versions now, the Publish command has been largely overlooked. Sheet Sets are great, but when you have a number of layouts to plot, the Publish dialog box is the best `batch plot` utility. If you have a drawing open when you launch the Publish command, the drawing`s Model and Layout tabs are listed. In addition to managing the list of sheets, you can also opt to output the drawings to the device named in the page setup for each sheet listed, or create a multi-page DWF file.

Lesson 05 - Polylines
Lesson 05 - Polylines
A whole tutorial dedicated to the mighty polyline - probably the most useful command in AutoCAD. Polylines draw lines similar to the line command we used in lesson 2, but are a lot more powerful. Let`s start by drawing the same plot of land we drew in lesson 2, but this type using polylines. The polyline command is situated on the `draw` toolbar.

Working With The External Reference Manager
Working With The External Reference Manager
An AutoCAD drawing file often references other files—such as other drawings (via the XREF functionality) as well as plot styles, images, standards, and font files associated with the drawing. The references, or dependencies, are simply an embedded record of the path to the referenced objects or files. Theses references and their relationships can, however, become quite complex as anyone who works with these types of drawings can attest.
