Custom Tool/Attribute – This command is similar to custom selection but it also allows you to choose tools and settings to be saved. It creates a script like the custom selection, which will appear in a floating palette.

This command can create a script that sets the line weight, class, line color, etc. When you need to use it, you double click on the script.

  1. Wow, this is soo good! You saved the best customizing and time saving technique to last! Thanks for showing us this Jonathan, it was a ‘light bulb’ moment for me …so to recap…. By using the custom tool / attribute command, I now know how to select a tool to do a specific job and program it with the individual specific tool settings and attribute and smart cursor settings, class and layer options and give it a name and SAVE it a consistent COMMAND once and for all? And it gets even better as I can access my job specific programmed command in a floating palette and use it time and time again? Happy days.
