Chapter 21. Customizing Without Programming > Customizing AutoCAD Toolbars

Customizing AutoCAD Toolbars

Modifying AutoCAD’s toolbars or creating a new toolbar of your own offers another way to increase your AutoCAD efficiency. Toolbars themselves can be great timesavers because they group a set of related tools—AutoCAD commands—in a single unit that can be repositioned on screen and even reshaped to fit a particular screen work area. Unlike menu pull-downs, the individual tools on a toolbar are visible (if the toolbar is visible) and easy to point to.

You can modify standard AutoCAD “factory” toolbars by rearranging the default tool layout, removing tools, or adding new tools. If you add new tools, they can be either from a library of standard AutoCAD tools and icons or “new” commands or macros that you have put together yourself. Figure 21.2 shows AutoCAD 2000 and its Draw, Modify, Standard, and Object Properties command toolbars in their “out-of-the-box” default positions.
