Workspace question

We are upgrading at work from AutoCad 2010 to 2013.  I need to save my workspace so that I can load it in AutoCad 2013.  How do I do this?

That depends on your set-up.  Typically workspaces are saved in the MAIN CUIx specified for a particular profile.  Its generally a good idea to load your own, user-specific non-application CUIx as MAIN to make transfering information easier.  Additional CUIx's can be added partial to MAIN as required, and similar with the ENTERPRISE.


When jumping that many versions, it can be beneficial to start a new workspace from scratch.  Carrying things forward can accumulate old/outdated elements as well as limit discovery of new elements.

If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
Adopt. Adapt. Overcome. Or be overcome.
A good question will be halfway to a good answer.
