Have 15 network seats on a Novell 5 Network. Users are compliaining about
menus, when one menu is changed it is changed for everyone. How do you
setup customized menus in AutoCAD 2000. Was able to do it by setting local
preference files in AutoCAD 13, but not as straightforward in 2000.
I am thinking of moving our "Custom" cad directory to the server, instead of
having copies of all the same blocks, menu (mnu), lisps, etc. on everyone's
station. Are there problems with doing this? I.e., what happens when
someone changes their toolbars?
What I typically do is put all menu files, lisp etc on network drive,
configure profile accordingly; ie paths etc., export the profile. Also as
part of this scenario, I have created a personal.mns which is stored in each
users \home directory. The corporate menu is always loaded. If toolbar
changes are to be made by end users, they use the personal.mns. -> Corporate
profile stays in tact, standards are adhered too, administration occurs at a
single point. The "standard" corporate menus, lsp, etc. reside on network in
Hope this helps.
