New autoCAD guy, old dude.
Am taking autoCAD at a local college. Going to "night school," but am
going to the classes taught on weekends. Just started module 2 of 4.
Good fun. Don't know squat about drafting, but I do love accuracy
(ballistics). Have developed some proficiency with Visio & thought I'd
look at a tool built for specification, rather than generalization.
I'm not surprised to find that there are multiple ways to do any one
thing, never mind the dos command line interface.
So having a unique desktop, with your selected, customized tool bars
placed appropriately, is a necessity for developing autoCAD
proficiency. The gui needs to become second nature before you can
master the application.
At home autoCAD knows my "desktop". At school it doesn't (jqpublic
defaults). I tried to use a template.dwg (blank drawing) and later
learned that it seems to have the same inheritances as templates (not
So I asked the teacher. He didn't give me a sensible answer. I didn't
press (first day!).
So is this possible? I can't imagine why not. How do I import my
"persona" to my school-running autoCAD app.
thanks in advance
