A Practical Way of Selecting Entities: QUICKSELECT

In very crowded drawings, sometimes gets hard to select some specific entities. For example, selecting all of the beds in a hospital drawing, selecting all of the spillways in a dam drawing, or as you will see in the example given here, selecting all of the cabinets on the bottom.

Fig. 1.

For selecting entities, our best helper is layers without any doubt. In layouts, which are drawn with a good layering discipline, it will be very easy to make quick selects ( QSELECT ). Let’s quickly examine the command:

( Alternative : Symbol on the upper right side of the Properties panel. Fig. 2 )

Fig. 2.

After the command is entered, window in Fig. 1 is opened up. Now, let’s examine the controls inside the inside the window from top to down:

Apply to: Entire drawing it filters the whole drawing. You can also choose to mark a certain location and make selection in this location by the help of small button near it.

Object type: Here you can determine which type of drawing entities to be selected. Due to the fact that all of the kitchen cabinets in our drawing are blocks, we are choosing Block Reference type from here. For the example of dam, this may be LINE, PLINE or SPLINE.

Properties: From here, we are selecting which properties of the entities to be filtered. As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, if we are using a good layering systematic then making the selection according to the Layer property seems more appropriate.

Fig. 3.

Operator: In this part, the logical operations are listed as ( <> Not equal ), ( = Equals ), ( <> Not equal ) or ( Select all ). Due to the fact that, most of the time we are looking for a specific entity, we use the equal option here.

Value: And here, we write the value that we are looking for. As the cabinets on the bottom are in TAL_3D_BOTTOM layer, I have selected the name of this layer from the list ( Fig. 3). If you repeat the example according to yourself, you will notice that you are limited only to the types of entities which are present in the drawing. By this way, selection process is simplified. It is given on the part below, how your selection will be.

How to apply: Include new selection set, it creates a totally new selection set. And Exclude from new selection set extracts the entities among the selected ones that fits these settings.

Append to current selection set: This property appends the selection that you have made with these settings to the entities already selected on the screen. By using this property, you can make multiple selections one after another and append to each other.

Have ease everyone.

AutoCAD Community Team Members at Autodesk University

Oh behalf of those of us who were able to attend Autodesk University and meet up, Thank you! Curt, Frank and I spoke to a large number of AUGI members and volunteers, and it's always a great time to exchange information face-to-face.

AutoCAD 2011 Articles

Brian Benton wrote some great articles for HotNews about the features in this last release of AutoCAD. I encourage you to check them out in the new "Library" of articles. On the old AUGI website, you had to manually sort through each issue of HotNews or AUGIWorld, looking for a specific article, but, now, they're all going to be held in one location for easier access. Referencing Brian's articles, you can do a quick search, and find 22 of them... WOW! You'd better get to reading!
Additionally, Shaan Hurley has a list, Between the Lines, of bloggers who posted some articles on the new features and their impressions of them as users and CAD Managers.
You've probably noticed our old forum structure has been out of commission since the launch of the new website, but, it should be ported over soon.
The AutoCAD Community is comprised of users of both 'full' "vanilla" AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT (which is a lower-cost tool that suits the needs of many drafters and designers the world over), as well as the newest and even more simplified product, AutoCAD Freestyle.

Thank you for stopping by, and be sure to come back again soon.

5 Ways To Improve Your Adsense Earnings

If webmasters want to monetize their websites, the great way to do it is through Google Adsense. There are lots of webmasters struggling hard to earn some good money a day through their sites. But then some of the “geniuses” of them are enjoying hundreds of dollars a day from Adsense ads on their websites. What makes these webmasters different from the other kind is that they are different and they think out of the box.
The ones who have been there and done it have quite some useful tips to help those who would want to venture into this field. Some of these tips have boosted quite a lot of earnings in the past and is continuously doing so.
Here are some 5 proven ways on how best to improve your Adsense earnings.
1. Concentrating on one format of Adsense ad. The one format that worked well for the majority is the Large Rectangle (336X280). This same format have the tendency to result in higher CTR, or the click-through rates. Why choose this format out of the many you can use? Basically because the ads will look like normal web links, and people, being used to clicking on them, click these types of links. They may or may not know they are clicking on your Adsense but as long as there are clicks, then it will all be for your advantage.
2. Create a custom palette for your ads. Choose a color that will go well with the background of your site. If your site has a white background, try to use white as the color of your ad border and background. The idea to patterning the colors is to make the Adsense look like it is part of the web pages. Again, This will result to more clicks from people visiting your site.
3. Remove the Adsense from the bottom pages of your site and put them at the top. Do not try to hide your Adsense. Put them in the place where people can see them quickly. You will be amazed how the difference between Adsense locations can make when you see your earnings.
4. Maintain links to relevant websites. If you think some sites are better off than the others, put your ads there and try to maintaining and managing them. If there is already lots of Adsense put into that certain site, put yours on top of all of them. That way visitor will see your ads first upon browsing into that site.
5. Try to automate the insertion of your Adsense code into the webpages using SSI (or server side included). Ask your web administrator if your server supports SSI or not. How do you do it? Just save your Adsense code in a text file, save it as “adsense text”, and upload it to the root directory of the web server. Then using SSI, call the code on other pages. This tip is a time saver especially for those who are using automatic page generators to generate pages on their website.
These are some of the tips that have worked well for some who want to generate hundreds and even thousands on their websites. It is important to know though that ads are displayed because it fits the interest of the people viewing them. So focusing on a specific topic should be your primary purpose because the displays will be especially targeted on a topic that persons will be viewing already.
Note also that there are many other Adsense sharing the same topic as you. It is best to think of making a good ad that will be somewhat different and unique than the ones already done. Every clickthrough that visitors make is a point for you so make every click count by making your Adsense something that people will definitely click on.
Tips given by those who have boosted their earnings are just guidelines they want to share with others. If they have somehow worked wonders to some, maybe it can work wonders for you too. Try them out into your ads and see the result it will bring.
If others have done it, there is nothing wrong trying it out for yourself
