Okay, I'm a couple days early with my New Year's wish, but I'm hoping most of you won't be at work tomorrow or Friday to read the blog. :-)
In honor of the new year, I thought I'd post about the NEW and QNEW commands.
There are a ton of different ways to start a new drawing: from the Application Menu, Quick Access Toolbar, Ctrl+N, and of course typing NEW and QNEW. (Did I leave any out?) Most of these ways involve choosing a template from a dialog box.
To do this, you need to specify a file for the "Default Template File Name for QNEW".
Once you have a file in there, clicking the New icon on the Quick Access toolbar or typing QNEW automatically starts a new drawing from your specified template, without sending you through the dialog box first.
You can also use the CUI editor to change Ctrl+N to call QNEW instead of NEW, thereby bypassing the dialog box every time. Just go to Keyboard Shortcuts, Shortcut Keys, and change the command for Ctrl+N to QNEW instead of NEW. (Click on the image to see it full-size.)
Hope everybody has a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend -- see you in 2010!
