You are hearing it here first.
There will be a new AutoCAD extension releasing today for AutoCAD 2004 and AutoCAD 2004 based products. The press release will be later today as well as the download available on the Autodesk subscription center. This is a very nice productivity extension.
The Tool Palettes Extension enhances tool palette functionality and adds new fonts and text symbols such as centerline and plate.
With the Tool Palettes Extension, you can create tools from drawing objects and images in your drawing.
You can also create tools that execute commands.
Place your common and favorite LISP utilities on the Tool palette. You can create a tool by dragging objects from your drawing onto a tool palette. You can then use the new tool to create objects with the same properties as the object you dragged onto the tool palette. You can create a tool on a tool palette that executes a single command or a string of commands.
Organize Tool Palettes
You can create a tool by dragging any of the following onto your tool palette:
Geometric objects such as lines, circles, and polylines
You can organize tool palettes into groups and specify which group of tool palettes is displayed.
