Step-by-Step: Saving a Drawing Under a New Name


1.    Choose File О Save As. The Save Drawing As dialog box opens.


2.    In the File name text box, change the file name to ab2-1.dwg. Choose your AutoCAD Bible folder and click Save.


3.    Choose Line from the Draw toolbar. Follow the prompts:


Specify first point: 10,.5 J Specify next point or [Undo]: 6,.5 Specify next point or [Undo]: 6,0 Specify next point or [Close/Undo]: J


Your drawing should look like Figure 2-5.


4.    Click the drawing Close box, which is just below the application Close box.


5.    Because you haven’t saved the changes to the drawing, AutoCAD asks if you want to save them, as shown in Figure 2-6.


6.    Click Yes. AutoCAD saves and closes the drawing.


7.    Click the application’s Close box (X) to close AutoCAD.

Figure 2-6: If you try to exit AutoCAD without saving the changes you made to a drawing, AutoCAD gives you a chance to save the changes.

Summary


In this chapter, you explored the various ways of opening a drawing. While you can open a drawing from scratch, usually you use a template as the basis for a new drawing. Templates may have only settings or may contain drawing objects such as various size title blocks.


AutoCAD’s default templates are ACAD -Named Plot Styles.dwt and acad.dwt. You may customize the default templates or create your own. You can use any existing drawing as a prototype for a new drawing by opening the file and resaving it with a new name. (Choose File О Save As.)
