This week the Experience Tour hits Philadelphia and Dallas. Last week was very exciting as we had some fantastic sessions on all of the new 2009 products in Miami and Washington D.C. I really enjoyed sharing the new features in AutoCAD 2009 to the very receptive audiences. I remember ever so clearly that Washington D.C. was my favorite audience last year - they were so pumped up it was great fun!
I'm hanging in the Dulles airport enduring a 2 hour flight delay (ugh). So let's chat about more the features in AutoCAD 2009!
How to get back to the standard User Interface in AutoCAD 2009:
AutoCAD 2009 introduces the new Ribbon into the User Interface. Though the ribbon has some nice advantages - many of you have asked me how to get your old familiar user interface back. So take a deep breath and relax - here's the deal: You'll just have to change your Workspace back to AutoCAD Classic.
But easier said than done - Where is the Workspace toolbar with that handy drop-down list of saved workspaces? You'll find a new Workspace icon sitting on the status bar in the lower right corner.
Select this icon and you'll find a list of your saved workspaces along with the ones that come with AutoCAD. Simply select AutoCAD Classic and you find your UI is back to that comfy world you've grown to know and love. You'll find your pull-down menus are back...your toolbars...Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
See - no therapy needed after all! :-)
I''m off to find some food before my flight...sadly I have PLENTY of time to do that!
