Tweets this week: Tips and Books

Below is a summary of topics we covered this week on Twitter. This week we cover books, publications, and of course, user tips:

  • LT2012 tip: you can now BIND a DGN file.
  • Selecting an Annotative Object shows the other scales/ghosts? set the system variable SELECTIONANNODISPLAY to 0 to hide the other scales.
  • In a DWG file and suspect a problem? run AUDIT command (answer Yes to question), then use PURGE command to remove unused items, and SAVE.
  • LTisACAD Blog: Draw 2D Isometric Views
  • AutoCADLT: AutoCAD 2012 books out now
  • Having trouble in a file? Fix it: Start LT, then start RECOVER command and open your file. Use RECOVERALL command if it contains Xrefs.
  • Lynn_Allen: Check out Jeanne Aarhus video on the @ACADExchange as she talks about using PDF Overlays as reference files
  • Have many Toolbars from an older LT version? Start CUI command, right-click over a Toolbar and turn it into a Panel, place on a Ribbon Tab.
