Over the past several months I have been give allot of advice from a office employee about AutoCAD 2006, specifically on how to set it up. He touts himself as an expert on the subject, and even has a nice certificate from Autodesk University to back up his claims. However, so far almost every piece of advice or direction he has given me has turned out to be a bust. With all that said I would like to thank all the users of this forum. With out your expertise I don't know what I would do.
So I would like to hear some advice on the best way to create an office custom CUI. I want to have a standard company CUI on the network (enterprise CUI) that contain all the standard company menu's, tool bars, and tool pallets. They will all be read only so users cannot fuss with them. The main CUI file will be located on each users local machine so users can create there own work spaces and tool pallets.
Based on some advice, I took my company standard mnu file and used that as the base of the office CUI. In that CUI I then have the ACAD.CUI and the Express Tools CUI loading as partial CUI files. For some reason that just seems back wards. Wouldn't it make more sense to use the ACAD.cui an load my company standard CUI and the express tools CUI as partials?
I would also like users to be able to create there own local custom tool palettes & work spaces while also having company standard tool pallets and work spaces. I want the company standard tool pallets to be read only. Any advice?
