This help article contains a wealth of information - highly recommended read!

"Have you ever wanted to streamline the AutoCAD user interface (UI) to better suit the way you work or change the placement of the tools you use frequently? Maybe you only use certain tools when annotating a design or want to use toolbars to compliment the functionality on the ribbon.

Workspaces allow you to control the display and position of most UI elements within the AutoCAD application window. Once you have arranged the AutoCAD UI, you can save the current state as a named workspace which can later be restored. Creating task-based or industry specific workspaces can be a great way to ensure you have access to the tools you need when you need them."

  • Save and Set a Workspace Current
