Tweets this week

  • New word according to iPhone's spell checker: coordinarea. What I meant to write was coordinates. Oh well!
  • Use any copy/paste command to copy XREFs from one file to another: PASTEORIG to locate the Xrefs in the same ccordinarea in the new file.
  • MULTIPLE command is often missed for it's power: type it, then type MOVE and start selecting many lines to MOVE non-stop. ESC to end.
