Get a map of keyboard shortcuts and try a new way to pan.

Frequent tipster Leonid Nemirovsky of the Better Than Nothing AutoLISP site shares a tip on panning in AutoCAD with the mouse, and a method of retrieving AutoCAD's keyboard shortcuts for review.

"Hold the Ctrl key, then press and hold the wheel button on your mouse. It's another way to pan, Windows-style.

"To get a complete map of your keyboard shortcuts, initiate the CUI (command user interface), click on Keyboard Shortcuts (in the top left corner), and it will appear in the top right corner. To get more click on the Shortcut Keys, or the Temporary Override Keys."

Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol:
AutoCAD has two forms of input: the mouse and the keyboard. Using keyboard shortcuts is a great way to access AutoCAD commands quickly. Using only the mouse to start commands means users have to keep moving the mouse in a back-and-forth motion. Using one hand on the keyboard while the other is on the mouse is a great form of multitasking.
