I have a series of Tool palettes from Windows vesion - cannot I use them in Mac?
No, you can not, because .atc files, that uses AutoCAD for Mac for Content palette are only for blocks and they have another internal structure.
OR - is it possible to organize blocks in the Content in a proper way??
Not sure what do you mean by "proper way", but here is a tutorial from Lynn Allen about using Content palette in AutoCAD for Mac:
Yes, you can organize Content palette if you will create it in proper way.
You can collect your blocks in a different DWG files: in one file you can put trees blocks and add this drawing to Trees library (you have to choose "This drawing contains multiple blocks") , in another you can put cabinets blocks and add this drawing to Cabinets library, and so on.
And now about exporting Contents to another Mac - theoretically it is possible:
- After you create libraries you have to copy "ToolPalette" folder from "~/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/local/AutoCAD 2013/R19.0/enu/Support/" folder (for AutoCAD 2013) to the same folder on another Mac, but then you have to edit each of .ATC files in "ToolPalette" folder with text editor that can save "plain" text and substitute the path to each DWG library file with new path on the new Mac.
