    Default Looking for a top 10 AutoCAD issues list

    Hi,
    I am looking for some input from people that use AutoCad or Architecture on what they think the top issues/problems are that could use some "tweaking" Or Little tools like "I wish there was a better/easier way to do this"

    Example1:
    We use AutoCad Arch 2008-2011 and we do everything in 3d, when walls are added they are not always put in "exact" by cad but the program requires it to be, go figure. So if your wall was put in at an elevation of 8'-0" it might actually put the wall in at 8'-0 1/64" so in an elevation view materials won't merge and you end up with extra lines on your elevation. So we created a tool that would snap walls and blocks to the nearest 1/16" (or user input dist)

    Example2:
    We did some projects for a company that had 700+ page mastersets per house. On every sheet there was a release date that was manually typed in and they changed enough that the whole set just needed re-released so that means someone had to open every sheet and edit that text. (or copy paste) So we created a Global search and replace that would search/replace text across multiple drawings.

    Well, personally i would call those particular problems PEBKAC. The first simply cries out for an understanding of how to use SNAP and OSNAPs. The second is addressable with fields and/or sheet set manager.

    That said, do a search on the forums for "100 Paper Cuts" -- that should give you some good ideas from a number of different contributors.
