A few years ago I posted AutoCAD Free Bonus Tool Drawing Tabs "MDITabs" which when loaded in AutoCAD 2010-2012 provided a horizontal drawing tab for each open drawing file. This AutoCAD Bonus Tool was very popular among AutoCAD users working with multiple drawings open. Now with the launch of the new AutoCAD 2013 and the new Autodesk Exchange App Store there is a new version of the Drawing Tabs app compatible with AutoCAD 2013, and yes it is still FREE.
The new Drawing Tabs App for AutoCAD 2013 in the Autodesk Exchange App Store
Here you see the new AutoCAD 2013 with the Drawing Tabs App loaded and showing tabs for open drawings.
When you right-click context menu on the drawing tab you get options:
- Create New drawing
- Save drawing in the selected tab
- Save As drawing
- Save All drawings
- Close the drawing in the selected tab
- Close All drawings
- Close All but selected drawing
- Copy the drawing path
- Open the containing folder’
There will be a growing selection of apps for Autodesk products and I would encourage you to explore the Autodesk Exchange App Store.
