The following defects have been fixed: If you use the JOIN command on splines, a duplicate control point is inserted. You can only orbit around a single pivot point and you cannot orbit around a specific object in a large group of objects. Update 2 AutoCAD may become unstable while dragging the cube and releasing the cursor at the top of the canvas. Annotation Scaling Update 1 When there are xrefs in a drawing, changing annotation scales takes a long time. When an annotative style multiline text mtext is rotated or surrounded by a hatch, the boundary box does not display correctly.
December 4, By David Cohn Figure 1: New parametric drawing tools let you define persistent relationships between objects. Parallel lines remain parallel and concentric circles remain centered. You can also define dimensional constraints that are driven by formulas based on relationships between objects. But while last year the new ribbon-bar user interface overshadowed a relatively short list of new capabilities, this time around AutoCAD offers some incredibly powerful new functionality for both 2D and 3D users. Powerful New Parametric Drawing Tools Topping the list are powerful new parametric drawing tools that let users constrain drawings based on design intent.
