AutoCAD 2006

Today in Orlando, with Autodesk, the Infrastructure Solution Division's (ISD's) focus was AutoCAD 2006. The main focus of this release, without question, is making drafting faster and easier. This is accomplished by the five following capabilities:

1. Much Improved Heads-up Design
2. Anntotation Improvements
3. Productivity Enhancements
4. Improved Blocks
5. Migration/Transition

Perhaps the most impactful for users with more experience is the "Dynamic Imput." This is the ability to see most of the user's interactions at the input location instead of the command line which is where we are used to seeing them. This NEW ability allows us to work without the command line visible. Thereby gaining extra drawing real estate. To be honest I do not miss the command line.

Sounds like it is getting more like Microstation

To ban the command line is a fool.
I think it is a good work to work with the command line and the dynamik input.
Remember that in some commands tell us the command line the aktiv values of the command. So in commands like Chamfer, Rectangle, Fillet or Polyline.

GOOD THING YOU CAN UNDOCK THE COMMAND LINE AND USE AUTOHIDE!
IT'S A HELL OF A LOT BETTER THAN
HAVING TO WANDER YOUR EYES DOWN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN ALL THE TIME!
