New Features in 2010

Hi everyone. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Well I was playing around in Civil 3D 2010 tonight and noticed a nice feature that I never new about. Apparently you can return to any command you like by just simply highlighting all the commands that you would like to undo. What's cool is there is a small pull down that list all the commands that have been used since the drawing was opened. This feature can come in handy when you accidently erase an item that you shouldn’t have or you want to restart your design to some point in the begin. There is a small pull option right of the undo icon, which displays all the commands.

One of the new features that most all users are trying to get use to is the new ribbon. Some techs and designers have complained that they spend too much time looking for commands that were provided on tool bars for them in earlier versions. Well just recently I read in another blog where civil 3D provides and command search engine which started in the 2009 version. If you click on the small pull down option on the big civil3d icon at the top left hand corner, a blank space are will appear where you can simply type the command you are needed. The search engine will provide you the location of that command on the standard pull down menus or the main ribbon. See images below.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my first small post. :)
