As the premier hater of the CUI [AutoCAD's customize user interface] and figuring the ribbon only makes it worse, why shouldn't I buy this e-book.
Even if I never use it, it is still a good deal as I am helping support you for more good stuff down the road. It is a short road as I am now 66 and hope to retire before long.
I agree. The other day, I was trying out IntelliCAD-based progeCAD, and found that it still uses the old AutoCAD system of simply dragging toolbar buttons into the drawing area to create new toolbars. Wonderfully easy!
I took the CUI chapter out of Tailoring AutoCAD 2009 ebook to create a more affordable, stand alone ebook: Tailoring AutoCAD CUI 2009 is 130 pages long, is priced at $19.50, and covers all changes and additions to CUI, like ribbon tabs and panels, menu browser, quick access toolbar, quick properties palettes, and rollover tooltips.
