2015 AutoCAD LT 1st impressions

Recommended Posts

f700es

OK, I got notified that my LT 2015 was ready to download and install today so I took the plunge. So far I like the dark interface, to me it is a bit easier on the eyes as far as eye strain goes.

Speed. It seems a bit faster, more fluid than before. The 1st drawing I opened was a large 8+ mb site plan. Zooming and panning are pretty instantaneous in the redraws.

Let me kick the tires a bit more and see how she does.

Could there be hope after all? Stay tuned for the next episode of "As the Dark World Turns".

I can add that 2015 does in fact.....remove the educational stamp (infection). I had a file with it I was testing and it cleaned it right out. No prompt when I opened it up in 2015. I saved it to a 2010 file and then opened it up in 2012 and not prompt there either or on a print.

I still can't fathom what the reasoning was behind that move. It's there but it isn't?

From what I read in 2015 it removes it all together. 2014 SP1 ignored it iirc.

I agree, there is a reason. I just don't know for what.

Maybe they plan to stop selling the educational version and just sell the program at a discount price to the school itself?

Doesn't look as hard to read as the Photoshop black window. What's that transparent thingy at the bottom. floating command line?

 

I see the draw tab has huge icons for the 4 "biggies", does it come that way or is the button size tweakable on individual tabs?

That is out of the box Dana. I'll check to see what can be tweaked.

It was like that in 2013/14 at least. They are customisable and can be made smaller easily enough though.

Can you still turn it all off, I don't like any of that clutter.

Okeydokey. Actually, those 4 icons need to be big and easy to find for us toolbar/ribbon junkies.

just installed it on mine to upgrade from 2014 LT - migrated the workspace from 2014 which was previously migrated from 2007... I just don't like the MS office type of menus...at least it automatically moved the toolpallet files this time!
