AutoCAD is extremely customizable to a user’s preferences, in this document, a few common modifications will be explained (pros and cons) and you will be able to make a more educated decision when setting up your program. Note that these setups can be changed easily at any point, so you are not making a huge commitment to one over another. A quick note, AutoCAD is a program based off of commands, these commands can be run through icons on toolbars or tool palettes (point and click), and they can also be typed out at any point. The setups below will work better for either one of the three ways in which you call out your commands. Typed commands tend to *never* change whereas toolbar and tool palette icons do change, so when going from one version of AutoCAD to another, typed commands will be the same (making transitions very smooth) however if you use toolbars and palettes, there might be a steeper learning curve when going between versions of the program. Default AutoCAD View/Settings This setup is the default mode (or close to it, any extraneous tool palettes that are open can be closed) and it is very similar to how Microsoft Office 2007 is setup. If you wish to use this setup, that is perfectly fine, however note that Jerry’s AutoCAD notes will be specifically for toolbars which *should* (but may not) coincide with tool palettes. Pros:
