I never complained about the ""wrong" position of window control elements" I'm not sure where you're getting that.
The movie quote was to make a point that this is not about inconveneince, it's about being able to do your job. Yes it would be great if every company could provide training, but we all know that they don't. Welcome to coprporate America.
The movie quote was meant to lighten the mood, this crowd tends to be a bit intense. I believe that the point is valid. Software expertise is an important part of one's professional worth, even more so in a bad economy. When a company makes big changes to their UI, it takes away some of that worth.
I never said it was a "conspiracy", just a baffling move that has a negative effect for a lot of people.
Lighten up people.
"Him, like me, based on our long time experience with companies that provide look alike cross-platform solutions, like Adobe and Nemetscheck (Vectorworks), are baffled by the unexpected appoach and quirky implementation of an otherwise quite nifty looking and elegant interface.
Problem is looks without substance or expected consistency from a major program are not of much value to people that have to produce drawings and meet client demands and deadlines for a living."
I agree. I wonder why they don't create a helper plug-in, so when you run into these differences you would at least have a resource handy, even if it was just help topics.
What is most frustrating to me, is to stop and research something that I used to know how to do. It takes a lot of time to slog through forums looking for answers. I feel like there isn't anyone at Autodesk assigned to the change in interface issue.
Maybe it’s that Autodesk doesn’t address it as a legitimate issue that has so many people so frustrated.
Re the guy who was laughing about some people wanting to use "old school" classic interface when you could just use command line. Huh, what's more old school than command line???
BTW, i'm not lauging... just simply pointing out that alot of people complain about the changed interface but there are alot of other things that change in our lifes. And we normally welcome those changes, but when it comes to autocad it seems to unthinkable!
I understand how frustrated you are, as I recenlty changed platforms to Mac. Not only AutoCAD changed but I also been working with 3Dmax since it was only available in DOS... And now I'm doing Maya. I'm almost 40 and recenlty had to pull a few all nighters trying to get learn a new workflow and I emersed my self and found the expericne invigorating!
