Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video The right-click menu, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
The right click menu in autocad for mac…is as important as it is in any…other application in mac OS 10.…The right click menu hides many options…for a lot of the commands that we're working with,…some that are almost critical to our performance.…We'll see this use throughout the course,…but I wanted to highlight a few of the tools now,…just to give you an idea of what's available.…When in doubt, try right clicking,…and see what options you get.…When selecting a dimension, if I right click,…I have the options of changing the dimension…style, altering the precision, and if I click and drag…the text, I have the option of stretching the text,…moving it with a liter, or even resetting the…text position itself.…
If I select the poly line, and right click,…I have poly line editing tools specific to a poly line,…like closing or opening the poly line,…or applying a curve or a spline fifth.…For objects like hatch, if I right click,…I can set the origin, set a boundary,…or even generate a new boundary…for my hatch object.…
