I just installed ACAD Mech 2011 this morning and am already lost without my copy with base point right where it has been for 12 years. I've spent some time looking around the CUI and can't figure out how to customise the right click menu. What is it called in the CUI?
Is it even possible to add copy with base point to the first right click menu?
Yes, you can add it to the right-click menu by going to CUI, search Copy with base point and add the command to:
Shortcut Menus, Edit Menu. I added mine inside the Clipboard sub menu, but you can place it anywhere you like.
You say: "simply edit", and then say "it can be a little tricky". Please don't brush us off. I have found the CUI customization to be non-intuitive and foggy at best.
This is something that some of us have gotten very used to. Now on new installs it is gone. I used to teach CAD
One of the previous posters made a comment regarding it being there for 12 years, and now its gone. He is expressing his dissatisfaction. I am just getting in to 2011 MEP (wrong forum?) I missed that comand fairly quickly.
You made a comment about " SimpleCAD3000 ". People come here for help. If AutoCAD is the tool of choice, the tool to meet or beat, why can't it be easier than the competition? Sometimes there are some simple things that get made complicated. The command was there, now its gone.
Autodesk is now sending out "surveys" asking for help grading their website. I spent some of "my time" this morning filling one out.
I've been around long enough to remember running AutoCAD from the the side-bar menu. I had a tablet too. Then there were pull-dows. When toolbars were introduced, they were the way of the future. Now Autodesk is jumping on a different bus. The ribbon is NOW the wave of the future, following Microsoft.
I spent time getting into setting up toolbars back when. I tried to embrace that. Lately, it seems like out-of-the-box has been my mode of operating. I can be set on a different computer at a whim. Customization gets thrown out when platforms are changed and products upgraded. We *users* out here are at your mercy.
Next, I will be learning Revit.
