In exchange I typed
and the first answer was exactly what you would need and expected.
I think the help is working pretty well, as long as you are logged in of course.
The answer you got from google , mvsetup, is old school and may not be the best answer for newer releases. You do know you can just rotate the viewport and the view follows? See VPROTATEASSOC in help.
Thanks for a swift responce, I really appreciate it.
What do you mean by saying "you must be logged in?". Logged into what? Sorry if my question seems disturbing, i am really interested and will be thaknfull for the answer.
And thanks for the VPROTATEASSOC command, haven't used it until today. It is really fun.
"...This is the problem: I do not have Acad's help at hand anymore..."
It doesn't really matter whether it is old school or not, I think that changing the configuration of the HELP on the fly without providing the existing subscribtion users the option to switch to CLASSIC HELP is counter productive.
These move buy Autodesk may be fine to the New CAD purchase members, but not Helping those that were accustomed to their usual ways. Providing the option may be the best answer for both New release Users and old alike.
I didn't expect that a simple thing such as the HELP would be this complicated considering what I normally attribute my preferences to Autodesk is, which is, for one thing, that it normally makes available the "CLASSIC" option with their Upgrades. I do not know what gives presently.
"What do you mean by saying "you must be logged in?"
Connected to the internet, some are connected all the time, most have to log in due to IT restrictions.
"And thanks for the VPROTATEASSOC command, haven't used it until today. It is really fun."
You are welcome, makes life that much easier.
I have been using AutoCAD since late 1988, I have been able to upgrade with each release. I find it much easier to roll with the punches, as it were, and just learn what is new, what has changed, what has been removed. It takes about a week to adjust and then it is as if I have used it that way forever.
As I said, I typed in the search in exchange and the first choice was exactly what you needed. How is that broken?
The upside to help being on line is the help file is easily updated with no effort on our part. And I think it will continue to get better as a result.
What a traumatic argument. Punches?! I would rather they just provide the Classic option....JK
Joke aside. One thing for sure, we all just have to deal with the process of evolution. At the end, Hopefully it will be pretty.
Which option in AutoCAD 2012 you don't have?
