Pressing the Return button usually, but not always, has the same result as pressing the Enter key of the computer's keyboard. When the icon is on screen, moving the mouse pans a drawing on screen. Moving the wheel forwards enlarges zooms in the drawing on screen.
Move the wheel backwards and a drawing reduces in size on the screen zooms out. Press the Switch selector and a window appears Fig.
Left-click on any one of the applications named in the window and that application becomes current. The pick box at the intersection of the cursor hairs moves with the cursor hairs in response to movements of the mouse. Some operators prefer cursors hairs to be shorter. The length of the cursor hairs can be adjusted in the Options dialog pages 8 and PalettesTwo palettes which may be frequently used are the DesignCenter palette and the Properties palette.
These can be called to screen from icons in the Standard toolbar as shown in Figs 1. DesignCenter palette: Fig. The list of available toolbars is shown in the menu in Fig. This menu is called to screen with a right-click on any toolbar already on screen. Toolbars already on screen are shown by ticks against their names in the menu. To call a new toolbar to screen left-click on its name in the menu. A left-click on Customize. An example of this dialog -the Customize User Interface is shown in Fig.
It has also been selected in the Button Image list. A click on Edit in the Button Image area of the dialog brings an enlarged image of the selected icon into a new dialog. Above the enlarged icon is a set of tools with which the icon can be edited. Other customisations can be effected through the Customize Use Interface dialog. Note that if you experiment with these customisations do not save them unless they are required by the operator.
When a toolbar is selected from the menu it appears on screen as shown in the top of Fig. By dragging on cursors which appear at the edges of the toolbar, when the cursor hairs under mouse movement are placed in position, the shape of the toolbar can be changed.
Toolbars in the drawing area of the AutoCAD window are said to be floating. Settings can be made in many of the dialogs, files can be saved and opened, and changes can be made to variables. Examples of the parts of dialogs are shown in Figs 1. These examples are taken from the Select File dialog, by which drawings which have been saved can be opened and part of the Options dialog in which many settings can be made to allow operators the choice of their methods of constructing drawings.
To open the Select File dialog, click File in the menu bar and in the drop-down menu which appears click Open. Note the three dots after Open. This means that a click on any such name in a drop-down menu which is followed by. The Select File dialog appears on screen Fig. Note the following parts in the dialog, many of which are common to other AutoCAD dialogs:Title bar: Showing the name of the dialog.
Close dialog button: Common to other dialogs. Popup list: A left-click on the arrow to the right of the field brings down a popup list listing selections available in the dialog.
To open the Options dialog, right-click in the command palette and a right-click menu appears Fig. Click on the name Options. This is a complex dialog, only part of which is shown in Fig. Note the following in this dialog: Radio buttons: A black dot in a radio button indicates the feature described is on.
No dot and the feature is off. Slider: A slider pointer can be dragged to change sizes of the feature controlled by the slider. A click on a button turns that function on, if it is off; a click on a button when it is off turns the function back on.
Similar results can be obtained by using function keys of the computer keyboard keys F1 to F When set on, the cursor under mouse control can only be moved in jumps from one snap point to another.
See also page When set on, a series of grid points appears in the drawing area. Drawing templatesDrawing templates are files with an extension. Templates are files which have been saved with predetermined settings, such as Grid spacing, Snap spacing, etc.
Templates can be opened from the Select template dialog see Fig. An example of a template file being opened is shown in Fig. In this example the template is opened in Paper Space and is complete with a title block and borders.
Throughout this book drawings will usually be constructed in an adaptation of the acadiso. To adapt this template In the command palette enter type grid followed by a right-click or by pressing the Enter key. Then enter 10 in response to the prompt which appears, followed by a right-click. In the command palette enter snap followed by right-click. Then enter 5 followed by a right-click Fig. A 3D model drawing as if resting on the surface of a monitor is shown in Fig. In the command palette enter limits, followed by a right-click.
Rightclick again. Then enter , and right-click Fig. In the command window enter zoom and right-click. Then in response to the line of prompts which appears enter a for All and right-click Fig. Revision notes 1. Or right-click on the shortcut, followed by a left-click on Open in the menu which then appears. A left-click on a menu name in the menu bar brings a drop-down menu on screen. In drop-down menus: a A small outward pointing arrow against a name means that a submenu will appear with a click on the name.
All constructions in this book involve the use of a mouse as the digitiser. When a mouse is the digitiser: moving the mouse. The item moves in sympathy with the mouse movement. Palettes are a feature of AutoCAD In particular the Command palette, the DesignCenter palette and the Properties palette may be in frequent use. Tools are shown as icons in toolbars. When a tool is picked a tooltip describing the tool appears. A toolbar menu appears with a right-click in any toolbar on screen.
Dialogs allow opening and saving of files and the setting of parameters. A number of right-click menus are used in AutoCAD A number of buttons in the status bar can be used to toggle features such as snap and grid.
Function keys of the keyboard can also be used for toggling some of these functions. The AutoCAD coordinate system determines the position in units of any point in the drawing area and any point in 3D space. Drawings are usually constructed in templates with predetermined settings.
Some templates include borders and title blocks. Move the mouse around the drawing area. The cursors' pick box will jump from point to point at 5 unit intervals.
The position of the pick box will show as coordinate numbers in the status bar. The method of constructing an outline as shown in the first two examples is known as the absolute coordinate entry method, where the x,y coordinates of each corner of the outlines were entered at the command line as required.

It was like looking at a street under siege. If his information was correct, that might just be the case. Though how anyone has the energy even to plan a crime in this heat is beyond me. The word comes down from Above, and we get pulled off the case to go looking for a vampire. The upper floor was a brothel, and the word was that they were interested in acquiring children.

He was standing still in the middle of the room, head cocked to one side, listening.
