AutoCAD pop quiz…
Without looking or launching AutoCAD, do you know what the function key F8 does in AutoCAD?
Hopefully you said toggle ORTHO mode on/off.
If you didn’t remember, don’t panic!  AutoCAD is built with so many shortcuts and toggles; sometimes it’s hard to remember all of them.  The other day, I saw this post from Shaan Hurly (from the Between the Lines blog – if you haven’t checked it out, you need to) regarding the new AutoCAD shortcuts guide.  This guide covers one key shortcuts, toggles & screen management, and hot keys (A to Z).  It even comes with a printable keyboard sticker layout (end user must purchase blank sticker layouts).
Check out the AutoCAD Shortcuts Guide from Shaan here.
Or go directly to the Guide here.
Until next time…
