Hi,

About default 2004 DWG format for save:

If you are using AC LT from Autodesk or resellers, you can try small application from my blog:

 

http://wp.me/p10TA2-cX

 

If you are using AC LT from Mac App Store you have to run this command in Terminal:

 
defaults write com.autodesk.autocadlt2013 "HKEY_CURRENT_USER.SOFTWARE.AUTODESK.AUTOCAD LT.R19·0.PROFILES.<<UNNAMED PROFILE>>.GENERAL.DEFAULTFORMATFORSAVE" -int 24
to revert back:
 
defaults write com.autodesk.autocadlt2013 "HKEY_CURRENT_USER.SOFTWARE.AUTODESK.AUTOCAD LT.R19·0.PROFILES.<<UNNAMED PROFILE>>.GENERAL.DEFAULTFORMATFORSAVE" -int 60

 

For other DWG formats:

Change "24" in the first Terminal command above to one of the following based on the default format you want to use:

1 - AutoCAD R12 DXF

12 - AutoCAD 2000 DWG
13 - AutoCAD 2000 DXF

24 - AutoCAD 2004 DWG
25 - AutoCAD 2004 DXF

36 - AutoCAD 2007 DWG
37 - AutoCAD 2007 DXF

48 - AutoCAD 2010 DWG
49 - AutoCAD 2010 DXF
50 - AutoCAD 2010 DWT

60 - AutoCAD 2013 DWG
61 - AutoCAD 2013 DXF
62 - AutoCAD 2013 DWT

 

About preview - you can use "Open PDF in Preview" in Print dialog.

Many thanx Maxim, one more question;

I downloaded some title box templates with .dwt extension, where should I put this file in my Mac. Or any other solution to see these templates when working in layout window?

Hi GIO,

 

You can put templates file to the "~/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/local/AutoCAD LT 2013 Standalone/R19.0/enu/Template" folder (if you have not changed default Drawing template file location in AutoCAD Preferences). Then when you will create new drawing you don't have to search for these templates, them would be at hand in the Drawing template selection dialog.

You can create your drawings with these templates and Title blocks will be ready for use in new file.

You can also just insert Title blocks from templates to your existing drawings, for example by copy - paste via clipboard.

Hi Sam,

What do you mean "application don't want to install"? What do you see?

Hi Sam,

If you see an alert from Mac OS, that DMG is not recognized and couldn't be open, this could mean that DMG was corrupted during downloading. Try to redownload installation image again.
