I have Autocad 2009 but I'm use to using Autocad 2000. 2009 has the same commands but they are formatted differently. I was told I can change the layout/look of 2009 so it looks like what I'm use to in 2000. Is this true?

You can use the standard workspace, that disables the ribbon and brings you the older type of ui. But the icons changed massivly in 2005 (I think) and as long as you have loaded the menu from 2009 (and not the ACAD.MNU/MNS from 2000) you will have to live with the other icons.
Just a question: why do you use 2009 (why have you upgraded) if you only use 2000? "I'm used to" is what I hear quite often, also during AutoCAD-update-trainings. Take the time and learn the new features ... not all but some are really a help then!

You are going to hate OSNAP on text objects.
I still fight this to this day...
1. open a drawing
2. go to the bottom right hand corner and find or scroll over a symbol that looks like a gear. If you scroll over it, it may say workspace switching.
3.click that icon (gear looking thing) and select autocad classic and that is as close as you get to autocad 2000.
