Q - question

Replacement for the applications MdiTab, DocBar, CxDocBar etc. in AutoCAD 2009

A - answer Since AutoCAD version 2009 you can easily switch between windows of the opened DWG drawings with the internal visual tool "Quick View". See the book icon in AutoCAD status bar, or the command QVDRAWING.

You can pin-down the drawings thumbnails (see QVDRAWINGPIN) and size them with the Ctrl+mouse scroll combination.

Another option of switching between DWGs are the drawing thumbnails in the function "Opened drawings" under the "scarlet A" in the upper left corner of the AutoCAD window.

So there is virtually no need for "switching" ARX applications like MdiTab, DocBar, OverCAD Tabs, CxDocBar, Drawing Tabs or similar.
