DRAWING SETUP
AutoCAD user know how difficult it is to keep up with the Model Space "Scale Factor" that is used for the drawing size and the text size to use with that "Scale Factor". Let ToolChest help you set up your Model Space drawing environment with just a few clicks of the mouse. ToolChest can quickly set up your drawing scale, create default layers, and predefine the correct text size for the current "Scale Factor". Plus, you now have access to new titleblock templates that are fully attributed.

Donít worry if you started a drawing at the wrong scale, with ToolChest you can change the drawing scale anytime and it will take care of changing everything else. With this easy to use preference system drawing setup will never be the same.


LINE CONSTRUCTION
With ToolChest's line construction tools youíll never have to change to a specific layer before drawing a line. You can create a wide variety of lines on predefined layers, all with a simple mouse click. And thatís not all, ToolChest lets you define custom linetypes with your existing blocks. So donít worry about creating complex shape files to have those perfect linetypes anymore, just use the blocks you already have.



Say you want to draw a line with text in it, but you donít want to mess with AutoCADís complex way of doing it. Well use ToolChest to create those quick text lines, you can control the text height and spacing, even draw a box around the text strings that are in the line.

With ToolChest just enter the normal size of the text (1/8", 1/4"...) and ToolChest will do the rest, it will automatically scale the text to match the current scale factor. ToolChest will even put the different size text on their correct layer for you.



ToolChest gives you many new text commands to take control of your drawing. Use the Note and paragraph editor to edit single line text just like Mtext. Create sequential numbered text lines, convert text case, and match previous created text with just a simple pick of the mouse.

If you do it more than once a day, then thatís to much. Let ToolChest do for you, it has several styles of annotation brackets and balloons, creates nice looking revision clouds, has several new styles of dimension arrow heads, and creates boxes with shadows.



ToolChest can also help you with itís document control features, like drawing date stamping and attaching sticky notes to drawing. And if you ever wanted to know how many yards are in a nautical mile just use ToolChest unit conversion feature.

ToolChest provides many new ways to modify the objects on your drawing. These new commands reduce the number of steps it normally takes to perform repetitive editing tasks.
