Stop hunting! This update gives you clear visual indicators of where to find helpful new features in the app. In fact, any time you receive an AutoCAD update (and we hope that’ll be regularly), you’ll be able to see exactly which features have been added.
When you update, if you’re importing a PDF with an SHX font, you’ll have access to a tool that will convert the imported SHX geometry into AutoCAD text. No more hassling with vectorised letters.
Note: Currently supported in English only; other languages to follow.
Once you’ve converted your SHX text from an imported PDF file, use the Convert to Mtext Express Tool to combine many individual text objects into one multi-line text object.
Select, pan, and zoom without frustration. Off-screen object selection is finally here. Now when you select objects, they stay in the selection set even if you pan or zoom them off the screen!
Now you can select complex and DGN linetypes, or snap to them, by picking on the gaps between the geometry. In addition, this feature works with all objects, such as polylines with width and splines.
For complex drafting on high-resolution screens, we want you to have the best possible experience. With this update, you’ll see the correct scaling for commonly used user interface elements such as the command line and Layer Manager, a ViewCube that looks like it’s supposed to, and beautiful icons.
Significant improvements in zoom, pan, and 3D orbit operations in commonly used visual styles. This means reduced lag time when navigating around your 3D models.
Don’t forget: You need an AutoCAD subscription to use all these new features immediately. If you’re already on a subscription, all you have to do is open the Autodesk Desktop App while logged into your Autodesk account, click Update, and … voilà.
