Hi CAD Experts;I wanted to design our own icons for fire alarm systems devices: Manual Call Point, Smoke and Heat detectors icons...etc and save them in the design centre or palette tools, so each time I upload a CAD drawing, I should be able just to drag and drop the icons from the palette tools onto the CAD drawing where is required. is that possible? and how?There is no problem with design the icons of *.GIF sort of of *.ico but to save them or import them into the palette tools, that is the main problem.Thank you in advanceBenzerari

An automatic icon is created for a palette-uploaded block by AutoCAD. You can override this icon - right-click on the tool in your Tool palette and assign it a new image (GIF, PNG, BMP...). This was introduced I think in version 2007.

Thanks Vladimir for the reply;
 
I am using AutoCad 2004 at the moment, I will try to upgrade to 2007, but waiting for that is there any way to add icons symbols to the Tools palette in 2004 version?
 
Thank you
