AutoCAD 2008 Features
What’s New in AutoCAD 2008
AutoCAD® 2008 software adds features to
help make everyday tasks easier. Annotation scaling and control of
layers by viewport minimize workarounds, while text enhancements,
multiple leaders, and improved tables help deliver an unmatched level of
aesthetic precision and professionalism.
2008 software introduces the concept of annotation scale as an object
property. Designers can set the current scale of a viewport or model
space view, and then apply that scale to each object and specify its
size, placement, and appearance based on the scale set for the viewport.
In other words, annotation scale is now automated.
Layers per Viewport
AutoCAD 2008 the layer manager has been enhanced to allow users to
specify color, line weight, linetype, or plot style as an override for
an individual viewport. These overrides can be easily turned on or off
as viewports are added or removed.
tables now give users the option to combine AutoCAD and Excel tabular
information into a single AutoCAD table. This table can be dynamically
linked so that notifications appear in both AutoCAD and Excel as data is
updated. Users can then select these notifications, allowing instant
updating of information in either source document.
Text & Table Enhancements
enhanced MTEXT editor now provides the ability to specify the number of
columns required and flows new text between those columns as users make
edits. The space set between each column of text and the edge of the
paper is also customizable. All of these variables can be adjusted to
specific values in the dialog box, or adjusted interactively using the
new multicolumn text grips.
new multiple leader panel on the dashboard has enhanced tools that
automate the creation of multiple leaders and the orientation of the
leaders (tail or content first) with the notes.
