Tweets this week

Below is a summary of topics we covered this week on Twitter. We post daily on the topic of AutoCAD/LT and features/abilities of interest to users: you can find us at  
  • Autodesk University Online Free access to hundreds of hours of Autodesk training:  
  • Highlight your text and press Ctrl+Shift+U to convert your selection to Uppercase or Ctrl+Shift+L for Lowercase: works with Text and Mtext.
  • Change the Text Case to/from ALL CAPS: Right click the highlighted text and select CHANGE CASE. Works with both MText and Text editors.
  • MULTIPLE command repeats the command-line command that you enter until you press ESC button on keyboard. Abbreviate it and others for speed.
  • Prefer to see frames but not have them plot around Raster Images, DWF, PDF, XCLIP and DGN files? Set FRAME command to 2.
  • Use CHSPACE command to move objects from modelspace to paperspace, or vice-versa, while keeping their relative scale intact.
  • SPLINEDIT and PEDIT commands allow you to easily convert a Spline to a Pline.
  • AutoCAD/LT variables short list for Plotting, Text/dimensions and layers/viewports
