The ArchBlocks libraries are organized into categories of single .DWG files to take advantage of AutoCAD's Design Center feature. The blocks are not created as individual .DWG files, but are grouped in "categories" of blocks, such as Chairs. All the Chair blocks are in one .DWG file called "Chairs.dwg". This way in Design Center, you find the one "Chair.dwg" select it, click on "Blocks", and all the chair block previews in that .DWG file are quickly displayed.

This has got to be one of the most common questions I get asked. In the interests of maximizing the AutoCAD drawing area, Autodesk have given us the facility of hiding a number of the user interface items, one of those being the display of the Layout and Model Tabs along the bottom of the drawing area... By default the display of the Layout/Model Tabs as shown above is missing, and is replaced by Layout/Model icons in the status bar, as sown below... You can toggle between the 2 display options by right-clicking over the tabs or icons and selecting "Display Layout and Model Tabs" or "Hide Layout and Model Tabs" as required. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

Català - Castellano - Deutsch Even from the colleagues that know less about a program you can learn something new. This happened today at work. I was asked some very simple questions about AutoCAD commands. Siting near my colleague to teach him how to do things, I realised he was using a command I didn't know and that is quite useful.
