After installing AutoCAD 2015 I noticed that the AutoCAD classic workspace is a gone and no toolbars appear. Users are being forced to use the ribbon like it or not. Well not completely.
my tip does not require you to go into the CUI. Simple and easy way to bring back your toolbars, minimize the ribbon and create your own My AutoCAD Classic workspace.

This tip has been around for a long time. I was browsing RevitForum the other day and came across. Did you know that you can have multiple assignments for the same keyboard shortcut? Check out Mark B's post on RevitForum.org (http://www.revitforum.org/tutorials-tips-tricks/581-more-shortcut-key magic.html)

A great Revit tip is Worksharing Disiplay Modes, which is conveniently accessible inside of Revit. With these modes, users can easily visualize their model to understand what is happening in many areas in and around their project’s environment.
Prior to worksharing display, it was difficult to see which elements within Revit each user had ownership of. This oftentimes than not, created workflow issues when borrowed elements were modified. Another common problem is when users would forget to switch to the proper workset prior to placing elements in Revit. This resulted in multiple elements appearing on the wrong worksets.
The solution to avoiding these unnecessary workflow hurdles has now been simplified by using the Worksharing display command. With this command enabled (see control bar image below), users can choose between four worksharing display modes.

I wanted to point out a great web resource for users of Autodesk software called Autodesk WikiHelp.
Autodesk’s WikiHelp contains over 20 products of information along with almost 10,000 users and many contributors that publish videos, comments and additional information when it comes to Autodesk products.
Revit 2012 WikiHelp was just updated with 2012 product information
I would like to thank all the people who used my Sugar Sync referral link and signed up. I now have 10GB of storage space. I could always use more but why be greedy lol. Yet again why not, so if you still have not signed up here check out this post.
