Subject: Customizing IntelliCAD

CADdirect_3">You can tailor many aspects of CADdirect to better suit your needs. For example, you can easily create and modify menus using the Customize User Interface (cui) command or create and modify toolbars by simply dragging and dropping icons. CADdirect stores your customized settings in a .cui file; you can also store them in a profile.

CADdirect supports the most important AutoCAD customization files, including linetypes, hatch patterns, text fonts, the unit conversion file, menus, toolbars, and aliases. In addition, CADdirect unifies many AutoCAD customization functions with a single cui command: command aliases, menus, toolbars. keyboard shortcuts, and double-click actions. And for versions of CADdirect that have a ribbon, this list for the cui command also includes ribbons, quick access toolbars, application buttons, and contextual menus. For more details about customizations, see CADdirect.htm#XREF_17108_Customizing">Customizing CADdirect.

You can also add custom programs written in any of several programming languages, including the following:

   ODA SDKs and IRX (similar to the Autodesk® ARX language)

   LISP (the program’s Autodesk® AutoLISP-compatible language)

   SDS (similar to the Autodesk® ADS language)

   DCL (Dialog Control Language)


   Microsoft® Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)
