But today’s post is about a another type of user. This is for users who are more comfortable doing everything with their mouse. If you’re the kind of person who like to do everything with a mouse, then you should know what happens in AutoCAD WS when you right-click your mouse.
There are two different contextual menus available when you right-click depending on whether you are in the Drawings directory or you are working on an open drawing.
The menu selections here are very straightforward and deal with file management for your online account in AutoCAD WS.
Using the mouse you can select multiple files and then right-click and click Open selected to open each drawing at the same time in a separate tab.
Share selected will open the share permissions just like clicking the share button. Again you can do this for one or multiple drawings at the same time.
Remove shares will cancel all the share permissions you have allocated to the selected drawing or drawings.
You can use Cut, Copy and Paste selected to manage your files and move them to different folders.
Currently the only way to permanently delete a file from your online account is either by clicking the Delete button or by right-clicking and selecting Delete selected.
Rename selected allows you to rename files in your AutoCAD WS online account.
The top two commands in this menu will change according to the last act you carried out in the drawing. So you can Repeat or Undo a Move, Line, Rotate, etc.
Where applicable, Redo Last Command will be available as well.
You can use Zoom Window to focus on a particular part of the drawing. Selecting Zoom Window allows you to identify two opposite corners of a rectangle. The drawing will then automatically resize itself in your window to focus on the area bounded by your rectangle.
Zoom Extents will resize the entire drawing so that it all fits within your browser window. From here you can start over and zoom in again on the part of the drawing you want to work on.
