Chapter 1. What’s New in AutoCAD 2002 > File Navigation Changes

File Navigation Changes

To do anything valuable with a drawing file you will eventually have to save and probably open the file. This is known as File Navigation—making your way through your disk system to access your files. With AutoCAD 2002 much of the focus is placed on the new Today page and its related interfaces. However, the tried-and-true method of file access is still there, the Start Up dialog.

The Today page in AutoCAD 2002 is certainly prevalent, but it is not yet totally self-sufficient. It has no method of browsing a directory and has limited alternative access methods such as an edit box for you to type in a file location. So everyone at some point will see the new file navigation system. If you would like to dispatch the Today page to tomorrow, you can do so by using the Options dialog setting under System and General Options. After you choose the option Show Traditional Startup Dialog, Today is gone for good.
