AutoCAD Tips for Making you Faster

Every draftsperson has some tricks up their sleeve, and it pays to learn from these. In my 25 years or so working on AutoCAD I believe I would be 20 to 30 % slower were it not for some of the methods illustrated in the video blog below. these include Right Mouse Click (RMC) settings, selection methods and some less known snap overrides (and stringing them together). They may take a little practise to get right, but once used to them they become second nature. You are welcome to comment with your own tips and tricks, or tell us how the ones in the blog may or may not have aided you in becoming a more efficient draftsperson. Or you may decide to come and do a course with is and get taught methods such as these in person.
