Re: My favorite thing about AutoSketch

09-14-2000 03:18 AM in reply to: mitch
My favourite things in autosketch are the easy to use tools, especially the
different methods of doing circles etc. The buttons for doubling/halving
the grid that I put on my custom toolbar make life so easy, the ability to
easily create symbols and then explore the libraries, easy to make
templates, keyboard locks ................ I could go on forever, but the
last one I'll mention is that oh so useful recovery file thingy on the few
occasions when AS actually manages to trap a fault!

On the whole I really do like AS, even V7. For the money, I think that
keeping AS updated has been the best investment my employer could make. On
the down side, there doesn't seem to be an easy way of defining default text
and dimension setups without doing it through a template, but hey-ho that's
the way things go!

Regards to ya all!

Here is another thing that I love about AutoSketch. The icons can all be replaced! I have built my own set of icons to match my needs. I have found that color codeing by type such as dimensions, polygons etc makes it easier for me to find the tool I need when I am drawing. If any one is interested in the set I would be willing to E-mail them to you. They can at least give you a spring board to coming up with your own designs. You know I just realized that I need to get a life!!!!! Oh well let me know if you want'em.

Tom,

If the file is discrete, why not upload it to Customer Files?

Unless of course you want a royalty for each copy. If so, I'll have my peaple
talk to your people.

Hi Harvey,
If you want me to upload the 18.6 k of icons, sent me the link to exactly where to I do it. I find AutoDesk's links to be very confusing sometimes and by the time I get to where I was going, I forget what I was going to do!

Tom,

Go to http://discussion.autodesk.com/WebX?14@@.ee940b3. You'll
find two ways to access CF. My preference is to use the Newsreader link. That
way, the group adds to your mailer client as a normal newsgroup and you can go
from there.

Using the Web format is dicey for me. The links aren't as apparent and not so
easy to see.

Your choice.

Also, it's a good idea to zip the file before uploading, although 18K isn't a
big deal. But sometimes an SKF can be quite large. Zipping can reduce it to
one-tenth it's size.

Tom,

That's nice. The link brings up the web page. I'd rather just open the newsgroup
and find the post. If you reference the title here it can make it easier.

Now. I need a hint, due to a certain thickening of the cranial material.

They open OK in Paint Shop Pro as small pics. Now what does one do with them?
How to use?

Well I'm typing this very slowly cause I know you read slowly but here goes. First unzip all of the bitmaps into your bitmap folder in the AutoSketch folder. Next fire up AS. Go to the tools menu or in my case the customize Commands button on my Custom tool bar. Open "customize commands". Next click on the command bitmaps tab. In the drop down list choose the command that is in your toolbar. Such as 2Point Intersection (which is the first choise in the list. Then click on the Browse... button and navigate to the bitmap folder. Click on the bitmap of your choice. Click OK and when you are back to the "Customize Commands" click on the Assign... button. If there are other commands that you want to change the icon for then just repeat the same steps as the last icon. Once you have completed choosing the icons just ckick OK to close the "Customize Commands" Dialog. And there you have it your very own customized User Interface U.I. for short. Happy trails Dude!
