Using TabLists in CadPilot

by Lorrie Mattor, CADmanage.com

We’re introducing a new blog post this month for our CADpilot users. I will be adding at least one new tip per month and if there is a topic you would like me cover send me an email at info@cadmanage.com or fill out our contact us form located on our main cadmanage.com page.

Do you prefer to work with lists of information?  Do you have many levels or cells/blocks to chose from and need a quick and easy way to organize…with non-cryptic descriptions?  TabLists are the answer to display and execute commands in a list format.  Ask your CadPilot administrator to setup a TabList for you.

The following is an example of a TabList and instructions on navigating and using TabLists. 

Use your mouse to select the applicable category tab, then click on the desired name (level name in this example) to execute the command.

ADA compliant commands also available:

The arrows keys may also be used to navigate the tabs and commands within the list(s).

 Left arrow  key navigates between multiple tabs

 Right arrow key navigates between multiple tabs

 Down arrow key navigates down through the current list.

 Up arrow key navigates up through the current list.

Additional key commands available:

 <PageUp> key navigates up through the list a page at a time.

 <PageDn> key navigates down through the list a page at a time.

 <Enter> key activates the currently selected item.
