Where do you start?
- Start a new template. Template files are .dwt files and drawing files are .dwg files. They are not one in the same. Be sure you begin with a template for your program and insert your own titleblock. Also be sure to set it as QNEW.
- Start using Tool Palettes. Sign up for a webcast on this from Steve Bennett on his blog, 2D or not 2D.
- Use this fresh start to go over or set up CAD Standards. Here are some good ideas from Mark Kiker.
