    Explanation
    The F2 function is used to pull up the command line or remove it. This means that when the F2 key is pressed, the command line will be displayed on the screen if it is not already visible. If the command line is already visible, pressing F2 will hide or remove it from the screen. This function is helpful for users who prefer to have the command line readily accessible for entering commands and viewing feedback from the system, or for those who want to maximize their workspace by removing the command line when it is not needed.

    • A.

      You create a template in order to place all your key commands in one area, which Autocad will use as its shortcut menu.

    • B.

      You create a template because you want to create a drawing with such properties as UNITS, and LIMITS, and thereby using this file as a template drawing everytime you create a new project.

    Correct Answer
    B. You create a template because you want to create a drawing with such properties as UNITS, and LIMITS, and thereby using this file as a template drawing everytime you create a new project.
    Explanation
    A template drawing is created to establish a set of predefined properties and settings that can be used as a starting point for new projects. By creating a template, you can save time and ensure consistency in your drawings by having properties such as UNITS and LIMITS already set up. This allows you to quickly begin working on a new project without having to manually set up these properties each time.

    What is difference between Model Space(MS) and Paper Space(PS)?

    • A.

      MS = all drawing(vector) elements/i.e. floor plan, PS=printing only, 30"x42" sheet

    • B.

      MS=drawings of sheet sizes for printing, PS=for drawing and printing

    Correct Answer
    A. MS = all drawing(vector) elements/i.e. floor plan, PS=printing only, 30"x42" sheet
    Explanation
    The Model Space (MS) refers to the area where all the drawing elements, such as the floor plan, are created and edited. It is where the actual design work takes place. On the other hand, the Paper Space (PS) is specifically used for printing purposes. It allows the user to set up the layout of the drawing on a specific sheet size, in this case, a 30"x42" sheet. In summary, MS is where the drawings are created, while PS is where they are prepared for printing.
