RE: Tips and tricks

So, things you are looking for are shortcuts to your most used commands? Correct? Then if that is the case you will have to decide which commands are going to benefit you the most. Example: Since I know where a majority of the commands are I use menus, but I put Zoom, Line, Delete,.....I hope you get the idea. You can customize your workspace to fit how you draw. Not fit the way you draw to the drawing.

RE: Tips and tricks

Thanks everybody for the tips
