Re: Your Favorite 2000 Features?

My favorites:


  1. All the new tracking capability really enhances productivity I especially
    like polar and the new osnaps



  2. Multiple sheet (layouts)



  3. Edged Gouraud shading and Orbit



  4. Solid Editing (still a room for improvement though)



  5. Properties and ADC

Thanks

mine are:
1) Object Tracking
2) Full VLISP included
3) QDIM
4) right clicking the statusline "buttons"
5) superb API
6) 3DORBIT
7) inplace block and xref edit
8) the overall "mousification": OPM, object tracking, layouts...,
now i finally can leave my left hand from the keyboard and scratch my
head all the time :smileyhappy: i dreamed of this for years...
9) stability. far superior over R14 (e.g. when debugging ARX)
10) ObjectDBX available via COM methods, and the whole architecture is
much better now, a fine seperation between UI and DB code.

Robert-

Go to the Options dialog under the Tools pull down on the menu bar. Click
on the Open and Save tab. In the upper right area of this window there's a
drop down list box for setting the "Deman load" options for xrefs. Select
Enabled with copy and you'll be able to open any xref at any time
regardless of the order in which the drawings are opened.

- Design Center used with MDE. Drag and drop layers, linetypes, fonts into
other drawings. Nice!

- Plotting. I was able to install a new printer (HP 8500DN), create
multiple layouts and begin plotting in minutes, without peeking at the Help
docs. A very intuitive interface. Multiple layouts are great.

Thanks Dennis! I'll check it out. It is one of those "new" features I
have to learn!

There have been numerous discussions in the R14 newsgroup on what
setting is best. A few of us CAD Managers have decided that "disabled"
is better. It makes AutoCAD work like it did before "demand loading"
was an option. "enabled with copy" creates unnecessary network traffic
and makes autocad "copy" the xref to your hard drive. Just that fact
alone would seems to make opening a drawing with many or large xrefs
really slow.

I've been playing with it for a few days since Dennis mentioned it, and
the biggest problem I have with it is that if I modify an xref in its
own session, in order to update a drawing with the changes, I have to
close the drawing and then reopen it, because you cannot simply "reload"
the xref.

Hey Robert, 

What use is DROPGEOM?  the only time it comes up for me is if I have some objects grip selected, and I accidently drag them. (always followed by UNDO - frustrating) The only use for it seems to be as an approximate way to move things (no way to use snaps or specify distances). And since there are very few times when I place things approximately, I would appreciate it if someone would let me know why Autodesk included this seemingly useless command.
