Q - question

Easter egg hidden in AutoCAD 2004 (and LT and Desktops).

A - answer Also in AutoCAD 2004 (and derived products) there is a hidden feature - called "Easter Egg".
  • Start the Color dialog (e.g. with the _COLOR command).
  • On the Index tab, Ctrl+Left click on the color box 152 (the "Autodesk blue").
  • And, voila - Autodesk developer team presentation will run
You can control the presentation interactively with your mouse: L=rotate, M=pan, R=zoom and with your keyboard: space=pause, enter=restart, Y=cheers, 4=geyser.

Make sure you have audio on...
