I'm working with some clients and I, myself, am rather new to AutoCAD. We are using AutoCAD LT 2010. I found, in this forum, how to export custom settings. We exported settings and then imported them on a new computer. All seemed well with one minor exception:
He mentioned that every thing exported as far as window settings go, but within each applet (I'm not sure what it's called when you replace the ribbon with drawing applets), some of the icons weren't in the location where he had it. He reported that his copy icon was in the location that his "Cut" icon was. I hope I'm describing all of this properly.
I wanted to see how to get these settings as well.
Assuming you've dont it correctly, do they simply need to reload their preferred WORKSPACE insiade AutoCAD?
Otherwise, you need to specifically migrate their customized CUIx file and any associates custom BMP image files they may have created, then load it in LT2010 on the new PC inside AutoCAD using CUILOAD command to replace the default CUIx file.
Where would I find those files? Would it be something I do using that export that I did before, or would I copy those files from one computer to the next by going to the directory and locating them?
If you still have the 'old' PC, start AutoCAD, then start OPTIONS command, look in the FILES tab under Customization Files>>Main Customization File to find the user's CUIx menu file and it's location.
Same procedure on the 'new' PC: if both are one and the same file then rename the one you find on the new PC for safe keeping and location the copied CUIx file here. Restart AutoCAD and activate the user's WORKSPACE.
I used that WORKSPACE to "SEtcurrent" to the one he is using on the old pc. I can't be for sure that it worked until he returns. Until then, Thank you so much.
Now, if this didn't work, what did I miss?
