Tweets this week

Below is a summary of topics we covered this week on Twitter. This week we cover linking, archiving sheetsets and underlays.
  • DIMANGULAR Command Creates an angular dimension:  Note: You can create baseline and continued angular dimensions relative to existing angular dimensions.

  • DATALINK Command Displays the Data Link dialog box:  Note: Microsoft Excel must be installed to use Microsoft Excel data links. To link to the XLSX filetype, Microsoft Excel 2007 must be installed.
  • BOUNDARY Command creates a region or a polyline from an enclosed area:

  • ATTACH command Inserts an external reference, image, or underlay (DWF, DWFx, PDF, or DGN files) in the current drawing: Note: Although underlay files are reproductions of their source drawing, they are not as precise as drawing files. Underlays may show slight discrepancies in precision.
  • BASE command sets the insertion base point for the current drawing:
