I'm trying to learn AutoCAD and I have a mac. The tutorial videos I am following appear to have the windows interface. It's so hard to follow what's going on with the mac version on my computer. Is there any way to change this?
In the screen shot it appears to be the same AutoCad for Mac user interface with the "Light" theme. Go to AutoCad > Preferences.. and under the "Look and Feel" change the current theme from "Dark" to "Light".
oh sorry i meant to attach a photo of what i want autocad to look like. that photo was of my current screen.
is there any way to get autocad for mac to look like this?
Same question. Is there a user proifile or something that we can import? This question seems to keep coming up. Would someone please answer? Thanks!
Not really possible, although some enterprising individual may come up with something in a few years. Like most software AutoCAD is built on top of tools provided by the OS programmers (especially in the area of UI design), which in turn affects the appearance. Hence, the Windows version looks like a Windows application and the Mac version looks like a Mac application.
@npeyton - I set up a parallel WIndows desktop and installed AutoCAD for Windows. Now I can use AutoCAD in either a Mac or Windows environment. Maybe not the best solution but it does work.
