I've just downloaded AutoCAD 2013 for Mac, student version. One of the first things we are being asked to do is bring up our quick access toolbar. I've not been able to do this as of yet. The problem I am having is when I go to enter the command "startup" then new command "1" nothing happens. This is supposed to open AutoCADs "startup wizard". Again, nothing happens. I should be seeing a new icon in the upper left portion of my screen. This should open a box so I can open AutoCAD Classic Workspace. This never happens. I do not get a new icon or the option for the startup wizard or autocads classic workspace. I need help please. As of today I am two weeks behind in this course.
OK, let's wait for the second opinion. I have no objection.
With that being said, AutoCAD and AutoCAD for Mac are 2 different products, therefore as an registered / eligible member of the Education Community, you're entitled to a license of each.
As a follow up, I also wanted to point out that you can run the Windows version of AutoCAD on your Mac, either via a virtualized environment (Parallels / VMware Fusion) or Windows partition (Boot Camp). Check out our Mac Compatibility page for more info.
