Thanks for your patience!
AutoCAD 2013 for Mac SP2 beta build is available now. This build fixes the compatibility isses on Mavericks as well as some other improvements.
Please see details here:
There was a suggestion a couple pages back that you could download the free LT 2014 30-day trial, until AutoDesk finishes the Beta test of the fix for LT 2013 versus Mavericks.
FYI: According to an online chat I just had with an AutoDesk representative, once you download the free trial, at the end of the 30 days you WILL NOT be able to get the upgrade from 2013 to 2014. You will have to pay for the full version of 2014 and not save the $600!
You would think that AutoDesk would waive this requirement, since they and Apple have caused us all quite a bit of heartburn???
No, according to AutoDesk the upgrade from LT 2013 to LT 2014 works. But if you use the free 30-day trial of LT 2014, after the 30-days goes by you cannot use the upgrade to 2013. You have to buy the full version of LT 2014.
I would like to confirm that trial usage has NO bearing on the Autodesk upgrade process and policy.
If you have an eligible AutoCAD LT for Mac 2013 license (excludes the AutoCAD LT for Mac app), you would currently be able to upgrade it to AutoCAD LT for Mac 2014 regardless of whether or not you have already installed the 2014 software. As a matter of fact we actually encourage doing so, as it provides a testing opportunity prior to committing with a purchase.
My apologies for the false information that was previously provided to you and please don't hesitate to let me know if I can provide additional clarification!
