Customizing Workspace to include 'Publish' and 'Page Setup'

Recommended Posts

The short need is the ability to have 'Document Setup' and 'Publish' available in ALL Workspaces. Possible?

I work in a custom workspace called ConnectCAD for my wiring work. All is good, but I can't use 'Document Setup' or 'Publish'.

I have to switch to 'Architect' workspace to get the 'file-publish' and 'Document Settings - Document Setup' options to appear.

I've tried customizing my ConnectCAD workspace to add 'Publish', and 'Document Settings - Document Setup' but it doesn't appear as an option in the customize screen

Anybody know how to do that? Am I missing something silly?

All workspaces are completely customizable. What you want is pretty basic.

 

My primary recommendation is to make a copy of your main workspace and edit the copy so any updates from VW or connectCAD don't destroy your changes. Updating them is not yet automatic.

 

This explains the process better than I can.

Both of those menu options should be under All Menus in the Commands tab.

Not sure how I missed those. I was in that window and I must have looked right past them. I had no issues adding them to the ConnectCAD workspace. Thanks for the heads up on saving my main workspace. Seems like a good idea.

Just a quick note from us at connectCAD. Workspaces are your territory. Surprising how many people don't know that you can change them to be comfortable for you. Think of it as your desk. We provide a workspace to get you started but it's YOUR space not ours 🙂
