Subject: Working in IntelliCAD

You can work with the CADdirect window and its elements in a variety of ways. For example, you can display and rearrange tool palettes, the toolbars, display the com­mand bar, and enable the status bar. The toolbars and command bar can also be floated anywhere on the screen or docked to the edges of the main CADdirect win­dow.

Use a shortcut to turn window elements on or off all at once.
When multiple window elements are enabled, the size of the drawing window is reduced, which can limit how much drawing data can be displayed. If you want more screen space dedicated to drawing, simply choose Clean Screen On/Off in the status bar. The window elements will hide until you choose the toggle again.
