Customisation refresh

I'm sure this has been covered here multiple times, but I can't find any relevant topics with the keywords I can think of.


How do I refresh customisations to the GUI in AutoCAD?


Our custom materials (scripts, LSP, icons, templates etc) are centrally placed on shared network drives.

( example: I have made a centrally placed Startup_Suite.lsp that just loads all our custom commands and such. It is placed in all startup suites and allows me to add, remove and modify all our custom commands without having to go by all PCs.)


But if there's a change needed to the CUI... I basically either need to remote contact or go by manually to import partial cuix', edit the workspace and all that.


I'm just betting that there must be a better/easier way to do this. (if only cause I don't want to fly to 3 different countries every time I come up with a nice piece of functionality :smileywink: ).

Look into the topic of ENTERPRISE CUI in Help in AutoCAD and all over these forums (and the web): it's a better way to have a centeralized menu for everyone.

Thanks, that was the matter of knowing the right keywords :smileyhappy:
