Subject: Loading customization files



CADdirect_1">You can replace the current customization file with a different one or you can extend the current customization file with additional items like custom menus. The program loads full customizations (*.cui, *.cuix), AutoCAD menus and toolbars (*.mnu, *.mns), CADdirect menus and toolbars (*.icm), CADdirect aliases (*.ica), AutoCAD aliases (*.pgp), and CADdirect keyboard shortcuts (*.ick).

Loading a menu, alias, or keyboard shortcut file replaces only those items in the user interface.

You can also restore customization settings by loading the default customization file from when the program was installed or by loading a backup customization file.
