  Community Tips & Tricks

> Opening and Replacing Drawings
The ReplaceOpen and ReplaceNew commands replace the current drawing with a new one. In effect, these commands close the current drawing, and then display a dialog box for opening another drawing. If necessary, you are prompted to save the drawing being closed.

> Save All Drawings at Once
Use the SaveAll command to save the drawing in the current window and all other open drawings.

To save all open drawings:

  • Type SaveAll.
  • Opened drawings are saved under the location, name, and file type specified when they were opened.
  • If a drawing is unnamed, the Save File dialog box opens so you can set the location, name, and file type.
