AutoCAD evangelist Heidi Hewett is hosting a series of blog posts on the AutoCAD Blog discussing the enhancements and changes users will see in AutoCAD 2018.
Included in her latest post are:
- Xref Enchancements
- Defaults to Relative Paths (several updates to relating to Relative Paths are included in this post actually)
- Identifying Orphaned Files, and
- Prevent You From Panicking
For those who may not read to the end of the article, here’s a teaser quote from the section labeled Prevent You From Panicking:
“Last, but not least, is a minor terminology tweak to the message that displays when you open a drawing with external references that aren’t found, might prevent you (or your less knowledgeable colleagues) from having an unwarranted panic attack. The message now says “Number of references that are not found” instead of “Number of missing reference files.” There’s a difference!”
Heidi also teases her next article on the 2018 updates – PDF Imports are up next. We’ll post that once it goes live.
