I thought that this was an interesting tip. especially after seeing some CAD users who have many palettes open at once and how much screen-real-estate that these palettes take up.
If you have multiple palettes open, you can do a simple customization to these palettes so that they take up less space on your screen. In the picture below, I have four palettes opened at once and they are all docked at the left of my screen. When I hover over a given palette, it will expand…
In the picture below: I right click over a palette and select ‘Icons only”
In the picture below: This is the condensed Tool Palettes as represented by their “Icons”
Is there any way to set Tool palettes expend only when I click on them and not on hover?
I found 2 things for you:
1) Manually adjusting this from the following link. But there is a larger section of numbers that may be different depending on what version of CAD you are using. The example shown is for ACAD 2009
2) An APP developed by Jimmy Bermark and it sets this setting in the profile (.aws file) automatically. Again, the latest version is for 2009
