Newly designed, innovative features simplify working with layers and help make new users productive as quickly as possible. Easy-to-use navigation tools make finding your way around 3D models a snap. Move to new highs of productivity with AutoCAD software.

User Interface

Application Window

The Raptor Application window offers a new look and feel! It provides you with easy access to the most commonly used tools while maximizing the drawing area. The default application window includes the Menu Browser, Quick Access toolbar, InfoCenter, Ribbon, and Status bar.

The model space background has been changed to a default color that is off-white enabling you to draw in modelspace with dark colors that you can just as easily see on the white layouts. Many of these user interface enhancements become even more valuable with a dual monitor configuration.

Menu Browser

The new Menu Browser provides easy access to a variety of content, including commands and documents, from a single button in the upper left corner of the AutoCAD display.

Figure 2. Menu Browser Button

The Menu Browser displays a vertical list of the menus items, emulating the menus that were traditionally displayed horizontally across the top of the AutoCAD window. Selecting a menu from the Menu Bowser expands the menu list enabling you to launch a command.

Figure 3. Menu Browser.

A search tool at the top of the Menu Browser enables you to search the CUI file for key terms. For example, as you begin typing L-I-N-E in the search field, AutoCAD dynamically filters the search options to display all CUI

entrees that include the word LINE (Linetype, Command Line, Line, Multiline, etc). You can double-click on a listed item to launch the associated command.

In addition to command access, the Menu Browser enables you to view and access recent or open documents. You can display the document names with icons or with small, medium, or large preview images making them easy to identify.

When viewing Recent Documents in the Menu Browser, you can display them in an ordered list or you can group them by date or file type. Hovering the cursor over the document name automatically displays a preview image and other document information.

Figure 6. Recent Documents.

In addition to recent documents, the Menu Browser offers easy access to recent actions. You can view a list of the actions you have recently performed and then select one to repeat the action.

Right-click menus within the Menu Browser offer additional controls including the ability to pin a recent document or action so that it won’t fall off the list, as well as the ability to clear the Recent Documents or Recent Actions lists.

Quick Access Toolbar

The Quick Access Toolbar is displayed at the top of the AutoCAD window, next to the Menu Browser. It includes the most common tools such as New, Open, Save, Plot, Undo, and Redo. You can add tools to the Quick Access toolbar by selecting the Customize quick access toolbar option from the right-click menu and then dragging commands from the Command list of the Customize User Interface dialog box onto the Quick Access toolbar. Easily remove tools from the Quick Access toolbar by selecting that option from the right-click menu. In addition to adding and removing tools, the right-click menu of the Quick Access toolbar enables you to control the display of the menu bar and toolbars.

The InfoCenter has been enhanced in Raptor to provide more flexibility when searching for help. You can collapse or expand the search field, saving space on the title bar. And when searching the AutoCAD Help system for a topic, you can specify which document to search; decreasing the amount of time you spend trying to locate a topic.

The Ribbon, displayed near the top of the AutoCAD window, provides easy access to AutoCAD tools through a collection of tabs and panels. Each tab contains multiple panels and each panel contains multiple tools. Some panels can be expanded to access additional tools.

Figure 10. Ribbon.

By default, the ribbon is docked at the top of the AutoCAD window. However, a right-click menu enables you to control the display and behavior of the Ribbon. You can close the Ribbon and then re-open it using the RIBBON command. It can be anchored to the left or right and if you want the ribbon to take up less screen space, you can turn off the option to Show Panel Titles.

To save even more screen real estate, turn on Auto-hide, specifying the Tabs or Panels options. Setting Autohide to Tabs displays only the tab names. The Panels option displays both the Tab and Panel names. Regardless of which option you choose, passing your cursor over the Ribbon automatically displays the full Ribbon.

You can control the display of content within Ribbon Tabs and Panels by turning on and off Tabs and Panels in the right-click menu. Easily reorganize ribbon tabs, or panels within the tabs, by dragging and dropping them into the new location. You can even drag panels off the ribbon to create separate, floating panels.

To further customize the Ribbon, you can access the new Ribbon Panels node in the Customize User Interface dialog box.

Status Bar

The AutoCAD status bar has been updated with new tools and icons! The left side of the Status Bar includes button toggles for familiar functionality such as Osnap, Grid and Dynamic Input. A right-click menu enables you to easily switch the status bar display between icons and the traditional text labels. The Quick Properties (QP) toggle is a new addition to the Status Bar.
