AutoCAD R2005 Easter Egg
*Applies to: AutoCAD 2005*

Traditionally, software has some type of hidden feature or a message from the developers hidden in it. This hidden message is what is known as an Easter Egg (hidden from all until found). Here is how you can get your hands on it.

Step 1 -  Launch AutoCAD R2005.

Step 2 -  Select the Format pull down (or menubar) and select Layer... .

Step 3 -  Hold down the Ctrl (Control) and Shift keys on the keyboard.

Step 4 -  While still holding down the two keys left click on the words "Invert Filter" located near the lower left corner of the Layer dialog box..  It will launch an additional dialog box with the Easter Egg in it.  If you are wondering why the text is falling like in the Matrix it is because the project code name was "Neo" for AutoCAD 2005.  The credits of people that helped out on the AutoCAD 2005 application are listed.  If you watch the whole thing you will also notice some of the names listed as Gold and Beta sites.
