Subject: Using workspaces



Workspaces are a convenient way to customize the display of commands in the Intel­liCAD main window. Each workspace stores visibility settings for the following:

   Menus — Visibility settings are saved for each top-level menu (for example, the Draw menu) and each nested menu (for example, the Draw > Arc submenu).

   Toolbars — Visibility settings are saved for each toolbar, its orientation at the top, bottom, left, right, or floating, number of button rows, x-coordinate, and y-coordi­nate.

   Ribbon — For CADdirect versions that have a ribbon, visibility settings are saved for whether the ribbon itself displays, along with visibility settings for each ribbon tab (for example, the Home tab) and each panel (for example, Home > Modify).

Use a shortcut to make more space for drawing in the CADdirect main window.
Click Clean Screen On/Off on the status bar to hide multiple user interface items at the same time. To customize what hides (or displays), right-click the icon and make your selections for the next time you click the icon.
