Using GRIPs To Edit Objects
AutoCAD’s GRIPs provide object-specific editing tools that assist when modifying AutoCAD objects such as the rectangle shown.
Upon selection, any AutoCAD object displays its GRIPs. Any GRIP can be selected and made in to a “hot” GRIP (again, see the rectangle shown). Either the shortcut menu or the command line shows the GRIP edit tools.
The shortcut menu tools are shown and you can press the spacebar to toggle between the GRIP edit tools if you are using the command line. Just press the spacebar to move to the next edit tool.
The right hand mouse button context sensitive shortcut menu (known as the shortcut menu!) provides additional commands in AutoCAD when used if an object is selected (such as the rectangle shown).
The Erase, Move, Copy Selection, Scale and Rotate commands are on the shortcut menu if an object is selected as well as the new Isolate command that isolates the selected object in the drawing for easier editing.
This simple right click provides a quicker easier method of modifying AutoCAD objects in the drawing as well as providing other navigational tools such as Zoom and Pan
Social media is not just for keeping in touch with friends; it can also help you land a job. Here’s how:
Network via your Facebook friends. Let your friends know you’re job seeking, and don’t forget to include your preferred job title. Join alumni Facebook groups and get in touch with former co-workers.
Tweet about your expertise. Establish yourself as an industry expert by tweeting news and comments about your industry. Follow companies and individuals in your field, and thoughtfully reply to their tweets.
Join LinkedIn groups. In addition to completing your LinkedIn profile, resume, and list of achievements, join industry and alumni groups related to your job search. As soon as you join the groups, jump in and start participating in the groups’ conversations. Be helpful and generous with your knowledge, and you will soon have new contacts across the country.
Be social media savvy, and get a job!
