Upcoming AutoCAD 2006 Webcasts

If you can't attend the Jacksonville AUGI CAD Camp on September 27, 2005 in sunny Florida, then at least there is some other training available for you to partake in. I found the following webcast/classes listed on Shaan's blog, Between the Lines.

Autodesk is sponsoring a fall series of 4 new free, 30-minute training webcasts featuring the cool new features and capabilities of AutoCAD 2006.

Quick Tip - Selecting Hatch Line Intersections

The Problem:
Ever have trouble selecting the intersection of two lines? Even with a "intersection" running object snap turned on?...Chances are that you are ignoring hatch objects in your selection process.

The Fix:
Open your Options dialog box by typing options at the command line, or "op", or select "options..." from the tools or format pull-down menus. Once the Options dialog box is visible click on the "drafting" tab and uncheck the "ignore hatch objects" option as shown below.
