Quick Access Toolbar in AutoCAD

September 8, 2019

Let’s discuss the Quick Access Toolbar in AutoCAD or as many refer to it as the QAT. I had fun writing an article about the Quick Access Toolbar which can be found published in AUGIWorld November 2016. Seems like a long time ago but all of the principals still apply. This bar can be customized per workspace and can be very helpful to you while you work in different disciplines.

The Quick Access Toolbar is a customizable toolbar that contains a set of commands that are independent of the tab on the ribbon that is currently displayed. You can move the Quick Access Toolbar above and below the ribbon. Let’s review what I wrote and I have attached a video describing how you can create several different QAT’s linking those to alternate workspaces. Using the CUI (customizable user interface) you can create several QAT’s and attach those to different workspaces to help keep you productive in your workflow.

Check out this Screencast (click Image) on how to add the layer combo control bar  to your QAT and give it a longer length.

That’s all for now.  I hope you enjoyed this post and have a great weekend wherever in the World you may be.

I will post about Autodesk University in more detail in the coming weeks.  Both of my classes have sold out quickly so Thank you!
