Does anyone know how to add custom flyout icons to toolbars in AutoCAD 2006? I'm switching to 2006 from 2004 and I use the UCS, View and Snap flyouts all the time but I cant find any way of adding these to a tool bar in 2006.

Make sure you install the first update before you start doing custom toolbars. I ran into problems with my toolbars and then a installed the first service pack and all was fine.

Re: Custom Flyouts In AutoCAD 2006??
Once you are running the service pack, there are two approaches.

If the source toolbar already exists, and you just want it to be a flyout in
another toolbar, you need to expand the target toolbar, and simply
drag-n-drop the source toolbar somewhere in the middle of the target
toolbar. Drag-n-drop to change the flyout's position after it is created.

If the source toolbar doesn't exist yet, expand the target toolbar.
Right-click and select New Flyout. The flyout is created, and it's source
toolbar is automatically created.
