Palettes as icons is a unique AutoCAD for Mac feature. You can hide all palettes on the screen and collapse them into small icons, leaving just the command line and status bar, a screen space saver.
- [Narrator] The palettes are certainly a very…Mac-like interface element.…But sometimes you just need more screen real estate.…As anyone would agree, the drawing window itself…is the main focus of our AutoCAD use.…And usually, we want as much drawing space as possible.…To help with that, AutoCAD for MAC…has two different tools.…One for the interface used up through 2016…and a similar tool, starting with 2017 and beyond…and that is Hiding the Palettes.…For the older interface, we have the tool here…under the Menu bar window,…called Show Palettes as Icons.…
Now on the Window side, we had Clean Screen,…which removed all the elements of the interface…except for the drawing window.…This was great for presentations…but not very useful for working.…Show Palettes as Icons is a great alternative.…It keeps the important Command Line and Status bar…and collapses all the rest of the palettes…to a series of smaller icons here on the left side…of the screen.…I can click on one and it will remain open…until I click on it again and collapse it.…
