Among the new features and enhancements, you can stay connected to your block content anytime, anywhere with the enhanced Block palette and Block libraries. You can now save valuable time and effort with customised shortcut keys and use recent inputs to easily repeat commands.
A subscription to AutoCAD 2022 for Mac or AutoCAD LT 2022 for Mac includes access to the AutoCAD web and mobile apps, so you can work in AutoCAD whether you are designing at the jobsite, at your office, or from your backyard.
Below we highlight in more detail the new features available in AutoCAD 2022 for Mac and AutoCAD LT 2022 for Mac.
Get greater flexibility with enhanced Block libraries
New enhancements to Block libraries let you display recently used blocks in the Block library tab for convenient and faster access. You can now specify a folder, drawing file, or any block definition stored in a drawing to insert as a block in the current drawing
Efficiently sort and manage blocks with Blocks palette improvements
Further improvements to the Blocks palette include the ability to display blocks as a list, which can be sorted by name and type, easy access to insert a drawing as a block from any tab on the Blocks palette and finally, a new option to rename the block definition while inserting a block—even if a different block definition already exists.
Export layouts directly to a new DWG file
Simplify your workflow with Export layout, which saves all visible objects from the current layout to the model space of a new drawing. Objects that are outside the boundaries of “paper” in the layout are also exported. The new command EXPORTLAYOUT creates a visual representation of the current layout in the model space of a new drawing.
Customise shortcut keys to personalise your workflow
Work the way you want with customised shortcut keys. You now have the ability to edit, add, and remove shortcut key assignments on the new Shortcuts tab in the Customise dialog.
Quickly repeat commands with Recent input
It is now easier than ever to repeat commands or command input using Recent Input. If there is no command active, the Recent Input menu contains the recent commands. If a command is active, the menu contains recent coordinates. Use the command, INPUTHISTORYMODE, to control the content and location of the user input history.
Connect to Autodesk Drive and Autodesk Docs
Autodesk Drive and Autodesk Docs connections have now been added to the AutoCAD web app, enabling you to conveniently connect to your files within the Autodesk ecosystem. With these new integrations, you can take advantage of anytime access to any DWG file with AutoCAD.
