AutoCAD provides 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
DWG Compare Enhancements
Measure Geometry Option: Quick Measure
A new installation technology dramatically improves the install time on solid state drives (SSD), typically reducing the time by about half.
Network access time to xrefs, blocks, and support files has been improved. Support files include those associated with hatches, tool palettes, fonts, linetypes, template files, standards files, and so on.
Support for Cloud Services
Save to Web & Mobile Enhancements
AutoCAD now launches correctly with different DirectX drivers (Dx9, Dx11, or no driver), high resolution (4K) monitors, and dual monitors. In addition, the graphics display settings are consolidated into three modes, which includes gradient hatches and images. The graphics performance setting, Intermediate Mode, is updated to reset several display parameters automatically to optimize your display.
Following are highlights of the work completed in AutoCAD 2020 relating to cyber security. Due to the sensitive nature of some of these fixes, we've deliberately avoided providing overly specific descriptions.
Four potential exploits in certain data files created by AutoCAD have been closed.
Several dependencies on DLLs or other components used in AutoCAD with known vulnerabilities were removed or upgraded.
A future vulnerability in a component is in process of being replaced.
A potential server vulnerability has been closed with an upgrade.
