It's been a while since I've migrated .mnu's to the CUI command. Based on your description, you'll want to have a look at the Keyboard Shortcuts node within the CUI command. Additionally, you can switch to the Transfer tab within the CUI command, to open an old .mnu / .mns file, and migrate it into your CUI file. Hope that gets you pointed in the right direction.

You won't be able to use the Alias Editor highlighted in this post since AutoCAD LT doesn't include Express Tools. However, that doesn't mean you can't still create custom aliases, just that you'll have to do so with Notepad (or another text editor). Go to the Manage tab > Customization panel > Edit Aliases tool to quickly find and modify the acad.pgp file.

Queenie, it sounds like you may need to adjust the vertical text placement property inside your dimension style. Changing it to "Center" should do what you describe. It's worth noting, the above method will not work if the vertical placement is set to center so you may need to create 2 dimension styles to make it all work.

I personally have run AutoCAD 2008-2010 on Windows 7 without any issues. Keep in mind many of the Windows profile directories changed between XP and Vista. Thus I could see where you may run into issues importing a 2009 profile from XP to Vista. Again, I know the default out-of-the-box install works for 2009; you may need to invest some time looking into your 2009 deployment, or even what type of Windows login scripts you have running.

Renan - I won't say it cannot be done, but I am not aware of any way to do this from AutoCAD. You may be able to trick AutoCAD into doing something like this from Excel. As much as I hate to recommend it, your best option may be to paste your table as an OLE object.

Cad Monkey - It's hard to say what AutoCAD is doing, well in this case not doing, without actually seeing it in action. An alternative I would propose to you is using the Paste Special option. I've got another blog post that outlines how to do that:

Hope that helps,

Stephanie - Have you verified an acad.pgp file exists in your local Windows profile? The path to check will look something like this: C:UsersYour Nameappdataroamingautodeskautocad 20##r##.#enusupport.

If the acad.pgp file does exist in that directory, make sure it's at the top of the list in the OPTIONS command. Are you having any other errors with AutoCAD, or is it just the PGP file? If it's just the PGP I've recommend copying it from another computer, or if that's not an option, create a new windows user and copy the PGP file from there. If you have issues outside the PGP issue, I'd recommend performing a Repair Reinstall (Control Panel > Add Remove Programs).

@ Terry - Under the Home tab > Layers panel, choose the Layer Properties Manager button. This will launch the Layer Properties Manager Palette where you can click the New Layer button (top). This will start a new layer where you can then use the Layer Properties Manager to specify the necessary layer properties.
