You may know or even be an experienced AutoCAD user who thinks... "Back in the old days we didn't use the new fangled icons on everything. What's wrong with just writing snap or grid?". Kids today don't even know how to read.

Check it out. Now you can show your age proudly and confuse youngsters at the same time. Take that whipper-snappers.
