Drawing Cleanup

Get it while its hot! From what I can tell, this utility will only be available for a limited time - November 30th. Think of it like a visual way to move linework from one layer to another. It should make taking those drawings from consultants that are non-conformant to the standard layers you use a snap (sorry - couldn't resist).

Autodesk has made a sizable donation for those affected by the fires here in SoCal.

No, not as in dogs - like R&D labs. Maybe I'm behind the 8-ball here, but I just came across the Autodesk labs. I was recommended to check out a cool video using the multi-touch screen by Jeff Han with Autodesk design software. You Tube link

That link showed the web address for - once there I immediately found a tool I am going to give a try: CommandComplete

There is some other pretty cool stuff I see at first glance but will have to get into it another night.
