Efficient Drafting
Tables
Feature

Function

Benefit

Create tables

Insert standard WYSWYG (what


you see is what you get) tables
with in-place editing and intuitive
keyboard functionality, similar to
that of Microsoft Word.

Save time with a one-step process


instead of a series of manual steps using
a variety of commands.

Manage table
styles

Establish specific table properties


that control various table elements
like border properties, cell
properties, location of table
headings, and more.

Provides an efficient way for creating


table data with a variety of formatting
options.

Edit tables

Editing options are available


through the context-sensitive
menu, the Properties window, as
well as standard grip editing.

Simplifies the process of modifying


tables, helping reduce frustration and
save time.

Import table data


from Microsoft
Excel

Cut and paste data directly from


Excel as a table object (AutoCAD
entity).

Increase efficiency by maintaining


formatting from the original
spreadsheet.

Tool Palette Enhancements


Feature

Function

Benefit

Content tools by
example

Drag predefined content from your


drawings, including hatches,
blocks, and external references.

Save time by creating tools that are


consistent with your current standards
and that help you maintain consistency
between drawings.

Command tools by
example

Drag AutoCAD LT commands onto


tool palettes (including the
Customize dialog box). AutoCAD
LT automatically applies the
properties of the existing object to
the new command tool.

Use your previous work, maintain


consistency between drawings, and
create tools consistent with your existing
work environment.

Modify tool
properties

Modify the properties (like color,


layer, linetype) of any tool simply
by right-clicking the tool.

Use one-click access to tool properties


for easy redefinition.

AutoCAD LT 2005 Features and Benefits


Feature
Manage tool
palettes

Function
Create palette groups using the
Customize dialog box. You can
easily switch between palette
groups from the Customize dialog
box or from the tool palette itself.

Benefit
Easily organize your tool palettes into
logical sets and quickly restore them at
any time to increase productivity and
save time.

Layer Management
Feature

Function

Benefit

New Layer
Properties Manager

Provide a description for each


layer, and immediately apply any
layer changes without closing the
Layer Properties Manager. If you
right-click the column headings,
you can quickly maximize columns
based on content. Any changes
that you make to the display of
columns remain persistent the
next time you access the Layer
Properties Manager.

Space-saving design of the new Layer


Properties Manager provides greater
functionality in a more intuitive
interface.

Filter tree view

Group layers using filters. Filters


for external reference (xref) layers
are automatically created and
displayed in the tree view.

Save time by easily controlling layer


visibility for all layers in a particular filter
group.

Layer Properties
filter

Defines which set of layers is


displayed in the Layer Properties
Manager based on any
combination of layer properties,
including name, state, color,
linetype, lineweight, and plot style.

Save time by using this quick and


flexible method to view a specific set of
layers.

Group filters

Control which layers display in the


Layer Properties Manager. The
content of a group filter does not
change after you create the filter,
even if the layer properties
change. You can add any layer to
a group filter, regardless of its
properties, by dragging the layer
name from the Layer Properties
Manager onto the group name.

Efficient organization of filtered layers


into named groups.

Other Enhancements
Feature

Function

Benefit

Mtext background
property

Apply a fill around multiline text so


that it covers any objects under it.
You can specify a border offset
factor that is the distance the
background extends beyond the
edge of the text.

Uncluttered view of text on objects


minimizes annotation confusion, thus
helping reduce risk of error.

Annotation
symbols

Insert commonly used symbols


directly into your multiline text
objects rather than inserting them

Saves time and minimizes mistakes


when working with symbols and text
concurrently.

as separate block objects and


trying to position them manually.
Draw order

Updated draw order behavior


provides a WYSIWYG display of
modified objects. When you edit
an object that is behind another
object, the edited object
automatically returns to its
assigned position as soon as the
edit operation is completed.

Predictable draw order results that you


can establish quickly and easily give you
the confidence of knowing that what you
see on the screen is what you get on
hard-copy prints and plots.

Enhanced OLE

OLE (object linking and


embedding) objects are
automatically drawn on the plane
of the current user coordinate
system (UCS). You can select OLE
objects and add or remove them
from selection sets just like other
objects in AutoCAD LT software.

Not only does this enhancement save


you time, it also reduces the possibility
of incorrectly re-creating table data in a
separate application.

Named views

Store layer settings with the view,


and edit the view boundaries.
Named views that you create from
paper space are associated with a
specific layout.

Offers more control and flexibility for


creating and managing named views.

Viewports

While in a paper space layout, you


can automatically maximize a
viewport to work on your model
space drawing using the entire
drawing area.

Makes it easier to work between model


space and paper space.

Learning Tools

preserve design intent, without
requiring the original design
application. Autodesk DWF Viewer
presents all the intelligent data
preserved with accuracy in the
DWF file, including drawing scale,
coordinates, assorted views,
hyperlinks, sheet or object
properties, and the file author.
With the flexible printing system,
you can print to scale, fit to page,
tile, or selectively print a variety of
sheets from a DWF sheet set.

Included with AutoCAD LT 2005 is a copy


of Autodesk DWF Viewer software. A

Markup
Feature
Autodesk DWF
Composer
(available for
purchase
separately)

Project team members can work


with computer-generated drawings
and images even if they do not
own or know how to use graphics
software.
You can navigate to various sheets
in a multisheet DWF file. You can
measure distances and areas in a
drawing, follow hyperlinks within a
set, turn layers on or off, navigate
to various markups, and keep
track of the author, time of
creation, and status. DWF
Composer provides markup and
redlining functionality that replaces
the paper process. You can mark
up drawings with comments,
sketches, dimensions, text, and
stamps.

Easily coordinate projects throughout


the entire design review process,
communicating digital design
information with published DWF data.

Markup Set
Manager

Load a collection of individual


markups contained in a single DWF
file. Markup sets begin as ordinary
DWF files that have been published
from AutoCAD LT and then marked
up in Autodesk DWF Composer.
The Markup Set Manager displays
the list of markups in the current
markup set. The markups are
shown in a tree view, organized by
sheets. Only those sheets in the
DWF file that contain markups are
shown in the tree view. From the
Markups tree, you can republish
markups, open sheets with
associated markups, change the
markup status, and more.

The markup functionality in AutoCAD LT


2005 automates the iterative process of
drawing review, markup, and revision,
streamlining workflow and helping
increase productivity.
