Tweets this week: Resources, Tips, Puzzle

Below is a summary of topics we covered this week on Twitter. This week we review more tips, a fun word game to stretch your commands knowledge, sharing files and finding LT Help.
  • LT2012: GROUPEDIT command allows you to add and remove objects from selected groups as well as UnGroup. And rename a group too.
  • Test your AutoCAD commands knowledge with this PDF posted by a CAD Manager in the Autodesk Forums:
  • Your client does not need to install any software to view DWG/DXF files: share them for free and maintain control using AutoCADWS Explore more HERE.
  • Start LAYCUR command, select objects, hit on the keyboard and those objects now moved to current active layer.
  • AutoCAD/LT ignores the INSUNITS setting when a drawing whose ANNOTATIVEDWG variable has been set to 1 is being inserted into a drawing.
  • HPSEPARATE variable controls whether a single hatch object or separate hatch objects are created when selecting several closed boundaries.
  • Turn on “Maintain visual fidelity for annotative objects” (Open-Save tab in OPTIONS command) to share Annotative DWGs with 2007 or lower.
  • LTisACAD Blog: LT Resources: free from Autodesk
