Glossary of Customization Terms

Common

Customization (CUI/CUIx) file

A package file that contains multiple XML-based files and custom image files. Each
one of the XML-based files contains data for a different type of user interface element
that can be customized.

NOTE:On Windows only, CUIx files replaced the CUI, MNU, MNS, and MNC files that were used
to define user interface elements in earlier releases.

Interface element

An object that makes up the user interface and can be customized.

On Windows, this might be a ribbon panel and tab, Quick Access toolbar, and so on.
It is a node in the Customizations In <file name pane that contains user interface items. On Mac OS, this is a menu or tool set.

Interface item

The individual components of a user interface element.

On Windows, this might be a button on a ribbon panel, drop-down list on the Quick
Access toolbar, command that is started by a shortcut key, and so on. On Mac OS, this
might be a menu item or tool on a tool set.

Macro

A series of commands and input that are ran in a defined sequence to accomplish a
drawing task.

Palette

A modeless interface element that can be docked or floating outside of the drawing
area.

On Windows, this includes the Properties, Layer Properties Manager, Command Line,
and so on. On Mac OS, this includes Properties Inspector, Layers, Command Line among
others.

Windows Only

Customization group

A name that is assigned to a CUIx file to identify the customization content between
different loaded CUIx files. Prior to the introduction of the AutoCAD 2006-based products,
a customization group was referred to as a menu group.

Element ID

A unique identifier of a user interface element. In earlier releases, an element
ID was referred to as a tag.

Dashboard panel

An organizational structure used to lay out commands and controls for display on
the dashboard, which was used in releases prior to AutoCAD 2009-based products. Starting
with AutoCAD 2010-based products, the dashboard was replaced by the ribbon.

Enterprise customization file

A CUIx file that is typically controlled by a CAD administrator or manager. It is
often accessed by many users and is stored in a shared network location. The file
is read-only to users to prevent the contents in the file from being changed. Often,
a CAD administrator or manager creates an enterprise CUIx file by modifying the program’s
default main CUIx file, and saving the file to a shared network location. Users then
specify this file in the Options dialog box.

Legacy Customization (CUI) file

An XML-based file that stores customization data for products starting with AutoCAD
2006-based products and ending with AutoCAD 2009-based products. The CUI file was
replaced by the introduction of the CUIx file. A CUI file can be converted to a CUIx
file using the Transfer tab of the CUI Editor (CUI command).

Legacy Menu (MNS) file

An ASCII based file that stores menu customization data for AutoCAD 2005-based products
and earlier releases. Use the Transfer tab of the CUI Editor (CUI command) to convert
a MNS file to a CUIx file.

Legacy Menu Template (MNU) file

An ASCII based file that is used as a template to define the contents of the MNS
file for AutoCAD 2005-based products and earlier releases. Use the Transfer tab of
the CUI Editor (CUI command) to convert a MNU file to a CUIx file.

Main customization file

A CUIx file that defines most of the user interface elements (including the standard
ribbon panels and tabs, Quick Access toolbars, keyboard shortcuts, and so on) and
is automatically loaded when the program starts.

Ribbon

An interface element that displays tabs made up of panels which contain commands
and controls, and can be docked horizontally or vertically along the program’s application
window.

Ribbon panel

An organizational structure used to lay out commands and controls for display on
the ribbon or as a floating user interface.

Partial customization file

A CUIx file that is not defined as the main or enterprise CUIx file. You can load
and unload partial CUIx files as you need them during a drawing session.

Quick Access toolbar

An interface element that is located above the ribbon, by default, and provides access
to common drawing file management tools.

Workspace

A collection of user interface elements, including their contents, properties, display
states, and locations.

Mac OS Only

Tool set

An interface element that displays tool groups made up of commands and flyouts (or
drop-downs) that are displayed vertically outside the drawing area.

Tool group

An organizational structure used to lay out commands and flyouts (or drop-downs) for
display on the Tool Sets palette.
