Cycle Through AutoCAD Layout Tabs

Hold onto your keyboard the next time you need to cycle through your layout tabs. Simply press “Ctrl” + “Page Up” or “Page Down” key to thumb forwards or backwards in your tabs.

On a side note, this is a tip that not only works in AutoCAD. You can also perform the same keyboard shortcut in applications such as Excel to flip through workbooks.

  1. Radish – Autodesk AutoCAD and Bentley Microstation are generally seen as the defacto standards when it comes to CAD. Truth be known, more and more people are moving towards more specialized packages known as “vertical packages”. Most of my knowledge revolves around Autodesk products. 5-10 years ago AutoCAD (likely running Mechanical Desktop from Softdesk – who Autodesk later bought) was still a prominent contender for machine design. These days it seems many machine design outfits have evolved towards Autodesk Inventor or SolidWorks. I used the first version of SolidWorks 98 before Inventor existed, and it truly revolutionized the way machines could be designed and drafted.

    Although AutoCAD has many design tools (largely thanks to the various vertical products such as Civil 3D), it is largely a glorified drafting board. Ignoring vertical products, many of the drafting procedures in AutoCAD are very reminiscent to the way drafters once drew things using a drafting board.
