Customize AutoCAD Map 3D
The layout of the ribbon,
toolbars, and dockable windows is saved in a workspace.
You can customize an
existing workspace or create a new one. You can save different workspaces
for different tasks, use them to help you streamline common tasks,
or set up best practices for mapping tasks and workflow.
For example, you can
set up a map creation workspace to streamline acquiring, integrating,
and building maps. Set up another workspace for creating and publishing
map books and atlases.
Within a session, you
can switch between workspaces.
Customize Your Maps
Customize map settings
and optionally save the resulting map as a template. For each map,
you can do the following:
- Set the coordinate system
- Attach drawing files
- Save and organize drawing queries in
- Define annotation templates
- Set up object data
- Attach external data and link it to drawing
Create and Use Automated
Automate a task that
involves multiple activities with workflows. For each activity,
you can specify input parameters and settings.
You can use the properties
of one activity as the input parameter for a later activity in the
workflow. For example, set up an overlay workflow that specifies
the feature classes to compare and the type of overlay to perform.
You can also specify
that some settings can be changed at run time. For example, use
the same overlay workflow for any pair of feature classes, selecting
the feature classes when you run the workflow.
