Startup Variable

Did you know you can control how AutoCAD starts up?

For most people when you open AutoCAD, it automatically starts a blank drawing with a template that has been set in the OPTIONS menu.

But did you know you can control whether AutoCAD opens a blank drawing or prompts you to open a drawing or template?

The system variable is STARTUP

0:    Displays the Select Template dialog box, or uses a default drawing template file set in the OPTIONS dialog box, on the files tab.

1:    Starts without opening a drawing template file, and displays the Startup or the Create New Drawing dialog box

2:    Starts without opening a drawing template file. If available in the application a custom dialog box is displayed

~Enjoy
