Customizing Your Work Environment
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

Your work environment – that is, the way the ribbon, menus, toolbars, and dockable windows are laid out – is saved in a workspace.

You can customize a workspace to look and function just the way you want, or create a workspace. 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, and another workspace for creating and publishing map books and atlases.

Within a session, you can easily switch between workspaces.

AutoCAD Map 3D includes three predefined workspaces:

You can customize any of these workspaces and easily switch between them.
