Drawing Tabs / Manager for ACAD 2007-2013
Drawing Tabs/Manager place navigation tabs
and the Drawing Manager at the bottom of the ACAD edit window
as displayed below for the Drawing Tabs.
The tabs are present whenever you have a drawing open
in ACAD. To navigate from one drawing to
another when multiple drawings are open, all you have to do is select the appropriate tab.
This is a free utility. Drawing Tabs were
originally developed for incorporation into
the CAE-Link Dwg Manager system. The two
are now integrated into one with the drawing manager placed on the same line as the
drawing tabs. To activate the options available for the drawing manager and
the drawing tabs, place the cursor over the drawing tabs bar (not on a tab) and press the
secondary mouse button. The options will be displayed in a pop-up menu.
CAE-Link Corporation has elected to provide this utility as
a free utility for the ACAD community. This is a utility that
should have been a part of ACAD years ago.
