Tip #1

Using Draw Order to manage overlapping entities; send entities to the back; determine angles of lines; creating blocks; use distance command; control osnap drafting settings;

Tip #2

Use the array command; how to create and then edit a block; set border color; rotate an entity using a base point; use osnaps as single steps; join lines to form a polyline; apply a fill to a polyline; move an entity using polar data enttry [move @10<0] how to mirror a block; using grips; use the ORTHO switch; the explode command; use osnap midpoint; build geometry quickly using copy.

Tip #3

Scale drawings to full size; use the distance command;osnap options; scale from a base point; working with nonstandard hatch patterns; rotate blocks by handle.

Tip #4

Tackling Lineweights; LWT switch; polyline thickness; display mode in layout space; deleting layouts; setting lineweight bylayer; create new layout; select all - change lineweight layer settings; change entities from one layer to another.
