2013 Tips and Tricks Contest!

What could be better than a free book?
Five free books, a training video dvd and a 3D Mouse, of course!

It has been awhile since my first Tips and Tricks Contest:
Tips and Tricks Contest: Win a Great Book!
Mastering Civil 3D Winner Tips and Tricks
AutoCAD and LT Bible Winner Tips and Tricks
Check out those awesome tips readers shared!

Contest Rules: 

1. Post a cool tip using the comments area below or by sending me an email.
2. Tell me which prize you'd like to win.
3. Provide your email as outlined below, so that, if you win, I may contact you for your mailing address.
4. Contest is open until April 30th, 2013.

After the contest ends, I'll take all of the tips and blindly draw a winner for each prize.
The winner will be notified, then I will share all of the great tips users submitted.

Use the following as a guide to submit your tip:

Name: Melanie Perry
Email address: mistressofthedorkness@gmail.com
Prize:  AutoCAD Bible
*Attribution*: "Mistress of the Dorkness"
*Software Tip Applies To*: AutoCAD
*Tip*: Use the Express Tool "SYSVDLG" to access your system variables, and even save them as an SVF file to preserve or share your current settings.

*I'll only be publicly posting those fields marked with an asterisk, and of course, I'll only be using the email address you provide to contact you if you're the winner. If you submit your tips using the comments are below, those will not be posted, they're caught in my spam filter so I can see them, but, no one else can.

You can post tips and tricks for your favorite Autodesk software (any flavor) or, if you've got tips about other applications or hardware that make your workday easier, I'd be happy to share those, too.

Thank you to the companies and authors who have donated the prizes for this giveaway!

;) Yes, this thing is on.

However, as I stated, I will not be pushing live any comments to this post, I'll simply be keeping them for my own use with this contest.
