Letter from the President - May 2023

Hello AUGI members!

It’s my favorite time of year, the time of year we get new software releases from Autodesk! Yes, I know I’m a geek. I mean really, who gets excited about new software features? Yep, me!

I love nothing more than spending hours going through all the new and updated tools in AutoCAD and Civil 3D. I especially enjoy looking for new features that aren’t well documented. Last year I discovered a feature that was updated a few years back and I never saw any documentation on it at the time. It was just a tiny hidden gem in the Offset command, but it made my day when I found it.

This year I’m really loving the changes to block placement through the Block palette as well as the new Block Replace command. There is also a sweet new menu on the File Tabs that is right up my alley. I love using the right-click menus on the File Tabs and the new menu button (three lines on the left side) contains some of my favorite tools that I access frequently. Similarly there is a new menu on the Layout Tabs (also three lines on the left side) that contains quick access to Layout tools as well as Layouts that may be pushed off the list.

Look for more articles on new features in the software you are using!
