Customize The Pop-Up Notifications

One thing that is great about AutoCAD is that it will tell you if something worked or didn’t work. One way it does this is by showing little pop-up notifications in the lower right hand corner of your screen. The annoying thing about these pop-ups is that they don’t close on their own. They wait for you to click on them in order to close.

Here is how to set these pop-ups to close after a given amount of time.

  • The picture below shows what the pop-up notification looks like when you print/plot a sheet.
  • Click on the downward arrow (as noted in the picture)

  • After clicking on the arrow, click on “Tray settings” at the bottom of the list.

With the “Tray Settings” dialog open:

  • 1st Click “Display time:”
  • 2nd Select the amount of time that you want the pop-up to remain open
  • 3rd Click OK

The next time you print or get a notification, it will close itself after the amount of time that you specify.
