    Default Custom Hell

    so I started with a new company a few weeks ago. I have been using Autocad for 29 years but when I got my workstation I realized that the entire program had been customized and everyone gets the same setup. They even changed the function keys, ugh... Had to buy a gaming mouse to program macros just too get osnap and ortho back. I am close to normal enough but I have one odd thing, when I move, copy, rotate, mirror, anything any object I do not see it move until I select a point. I believe I have all of the Highlight options set correctly but I just want to see objects I am manipulating.

    I realize some customization is good but the guy that set this up apparently left a few years ago, I can take out of the box and make it mine but this sucks.

    You always see it when using grips for all those commands and don't have to find a button on the ribbon or toolbar to do it.

    beautiful, thanks. I feel like I am learning autocad all over again. Extreme customization! I took a job many years ago and was looking forward to it, I sat down and the "CAD Manager" only knew how to customize, all new icons, commands and short cuts, I Left first day.
