A new video for the help. This video explains why you model sometimes switches to "boxy" mode and what you might do to resolve that. Now you know...

 

Please provide any thoughts you have. Thanks!

Thanks for adding these Patrick.

 

Some things for consideration.

 

Tips and tricks and N2K videos  should really be organized in a new section  within the Learn tab up top called Need to knows or <add other title that fits better> it seems like something was started there and its been abandoned.

 

One of the most annoying things with discussion groups in general (autodesk ones are no exception) is the way they are organized and that there may be really good stuff linked here and there somewhere but its buried in amongst a whole pile of other crap.

 

Tips and tricks would be its own thread and also sticky so it remains up top or near the top. if you must keep it in the discuss tab, then have a link from the learn tab back to the relevant discussion group thread that's got additional resources or info tips tricks N2K's etc.

 

By all means post a link to it from the discussion group to the appropriate place, it would really be good to clean up the discussion groups and keep the good stuff easy to find rather than buried while its still early days.

 

Do you have access to edit stuff on the learn tab??

 

Please stop this discussion group from turning into another load of crap, there's still time to pull out of the nosedive!.

 

There is also whole heap of functionality missing from these discussion groups as well but that whole other topic.

 

Cheers!

Carl

I've just been adding any  links to threads (including this one)  I find useful as a learning resource into the  tips and tricks section,

 

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Getting-Started/General-Tips-and-Tricks/td-p/3822689 if nothing else, personally I know where to look for help, I did ask would be it possible to move it to the Using section rather than the Getting Started as a lot of the content is more suited to this I believe, no one has answered my request.

 

It has been my main issue with this beta, as there doesn't seem to be any management of content especially , help and learning, which should be a very Important consideration, Not only should they be concerned with showcasing the features of the software but also showing users how to use them. And, rather than telling people how much they're listening and considering this and that for the future,they could be making small efforts to properly manage and improve the resources they have to hand now.

I hear you loud and clear Stevie. General Tips and Tricks has been moved to the Using Fusion 360 section. Onboarding users and making sure that they have a good getting started experience is crucial to us, and we are working on revamping the community hub's learn page by our product launch in June to enable better content discoverability and presentation. The forums can definitely use better organization and management, and is something we're also working on improving. Thank you again for all your contributions, they are highly valued and appreciated.

Thanks  Keqingsong, should it perhaps be a sticky like it was in the getting started section as this forum gets busier it is just going to sink!

Don't think so, it should have a grey band across the title and be near/at the top of the threads list ?

Hi Kequingsong,

 

How can you be a board manager if you dont even know how to make a thread sticky or what a sticky thread looks like? :catsad:

 

These discussion groups need to be lifted out of average, past good and somewhere into awesome, are you even capable of doing that?

 

We need less talk and more action!

 

Tips and tricks are a lot more useful and need to be sticky, to be easily found by others quickly and easily, it should be obvious its not this thread.

 

 

Cheers

Carl

I did sticky it as soon as I replied to Stevie's post. This is what I see...does this show up for you as well? There may be some lag time between stickying it and you seeing it?
