Tips and Tricks

After attending the Central Coast Civil 3D User group, I came up with some Tips and Tricks the presenters didn't use that could have been helpful. Here they are:

  • Use the command CloseAll, don't have to spend a whole lot of time having people watch you close your drawings.
  • If you need to switch between drawings, Alt+Tab works pretty well, quicker then going to Windows on the menu bar. Or if you want to use the Taskbar check this post:
  • Ctrl-A works in Elevation editor, so you don't have to select the first line and select the last while holding the shift key. (I remember seeing it on another blog before, just couldn't find it otherwise I would have posted a link).
  • When you offset a feature line you can offset it in both directions. Helps make it so you don't forget to do other side.

A couple of good shortcuts are
crtl+tab change between two files in the one drawing and ctrl+0 clean screen.
