AutoCAD 2020provides a set of enhancements based on customer feedback, surveys, and analytic data that prioritize our efforts. Several features modernize and streamline frequently used features across many customer disciplines.
New Dark Theme
Your user interface is obviously something that you use all the time. Past customer feedback repeatedly indicated that we needed to make significant changes to improve the clarity and crispness of the dark theme.
Several methods for inserting blocks are currently available: Insert, Tool Palettes and DesignCenter. Having these different options available recognizes that people in different disciplines have different requirements and preferences.
The Purge feature has been revised for easier drawing cleanup and organization. The control options are nearly the same, but the orientation is more efficient and the Preview area is now resizable.
DWG Compare Enhancements
The primary enhancement to the DWG Compare feature is that you can now directly compare and edit the current drawing together with a specified drawing while in the compare state.
Measure Geometry Option: Quick Measure
Measuring has become much faster with the new Quick option of the MEASUREGEOM command. With this option, you can quickly review the dimensions, distances, and angles within a 2D drawing.
A new installation technology dramatically improves the install time on solid state drives (SSD), typically reducing the time by about half.
Support for Cloud Services
AutoCAD 2020now supports cloud connectivity and storage with several cloud service providers when you use the Save, Save As, and Open commands.
Save to Web & Mobile Enhancements
View, create, edit, and share CAD drawings on your mobile device.
AutoCAD 2020includes additional support for AutoCAD Web and AutoCAD Mobile.
AutoCAD now launches correctly with different DirectX drivers (Dx9, Dx11, or no driver), high resolution (4K) monitors, and dual monitors.
Following are highlights of the work completed inAutoCAD 2020relating to cyber security. Due to the sensitive nature of some of these fixes, we've deliberately avoided providing overly specific descriptions.
