      Menu : GeoTools More Options   Application Loader with Startupsuite

Toolbar : Other Functions
      Menu : GeoTools More Options   Workspace Setup 
Command line : GT_WORKSPACE


The GT_WORKSPACE command is used to set the default workspace when GeoTools initializes.

Many users prefer to use the 'AutoCAD Classic' or 'Map Classic' workspace in which the pull-down menu bar is visible and the UI is primarily pull-down menus, toolbars and command pallettes. The other workspaces make use of the ribbon zed interface and do not offer pull-down menus by default.

The GT_WORKSPACE command works in AutoCAD 2008 and above and allows you to set your user environment upon starting GeoTools.

 

 

 

 



Toolbar : Other Functions  
      Menu : GeoTools Settings 
Command line :
GT_GENSET 
The GT_GENSET command allows the setting and editing of default GeoTools operational parameters. The parameters set here are used by GeoTools unless explicitly set by the command in their own dialog boxes. The distance values shown here are in DWG units. angular values are in degrees and precision units are integers. 



Fuzzy search tolerance around points of interest: This is a value to indicate a very small search distance around a point. When working with units like meters and feet, a value like 0.0001 may be appropriate but when working with geographic units (Lat-Long). A very small vale would be something like 0.00000001. Set this parameter accordingly to produce correct result from Geoools.
Default Value: 0.00

Maximum Selection set length to store: Specify the maximum number of objects to store in a selection set produced by GeoTools. Higher the value, larger the memory and  disk space required. During the processing of extremely large selection sets. It is recommended to set this value low so that the overhead of "remembering" the selection set is avoided. Please be ware that setting a lower value may mean that selection sets larger than this value cannot be accessed with the "previous" command in AutoCAD / BricsCAD.
Default Value: 1000

Force reload of CUI at startup: If you force a reload of CUI at startup, you will be guaranteed to be looking at the latest CUI at all times. However, this causes a flicker and a slighly longer load time. In AutoCAD, this may also cause all the toolbars to open each time you start AutoCAD. If you want to prevent any of these, you can now control the startup behavior.


Display command line options:
Checking this option will cause GeoTools command to operate on the command-line (no dialog box)
Default Value: Disabled  

Do not show user-interface: Checking this option causes CADPower to load without any menus and toolbars. The commands are available for use on the command line.

Perform Show/Hide toolbars in all workspaces: Checking this option causes the toolbars to Show / Hide in all workspaces.

Enable voice mode for important messages / errors : Checking this option activates Windows speech tools to speak out the important prompts, messages or error notifications. This tool may be useful for those experiencing difficulties in reading prompts on the command line or for those using the latest version of AutoCAD which makes it very difficult to read command-line prompts anyway.
