By the time you read this I will be on my way to Portugal...but I will still try to be dutiful in my web postings (as long as I can find Internet access somewhere).
So here is another awesome new feature in AutoCAD 2006...
Customizing just got much easier!
The new CUI dialog box makes customizing doable for anyone with the new friendly interface.
Essentially - what we had for Toolbars in the Customize command - we now have for pull-down menus, shortcut menus (wouldn't you just LOVE to get your hands on the shortcut menus?), mouse buttons, etc - but with more capability. We also don't have to worry about all those pesky menu types anymore (MNU,MNX,MNC - yikes!). Now we just have one filetype to worry about - .CUI (and it's XML based). No worries about bringing in your old menu files, the Transfer tab on the CUI dialog will bring them in for you and convert them. The really good news here is that as you continue to upgrade, your menu files will be a piece of cake to migrate forward (and that's always been such a hassle in the past!).
