Re: Lion is out, but read this first

Our company just bought a MacBook Pro. It has Mac OS X Lion 10.7 it will not let me print and soon crashed after trying. I was able to draw on the program for a few hours until it crashed again. Now the program will noteven open. After reading the forum is this due to the Lion system? Is there a fix for this yet? or do we need to return the computer for a system without Lion?

Just started using AutoCAD 2011 on Mac. As a new user of Mac (I have just bought a 2011 iMac) I've been completely blown away by how smooth everything on it operates. I'm really glad Autodesk have chosen to develop the Mac version of AutoCAD which is essential software for an Architecture student like myself. I hope they are able to support and continue to refine it to bring it in line with other Mac software. Instead of pursuing the the novel changes of a new version every year (which they seem to do with the windows version) working to fix the current edition with patches until it is a high quality product that justifies the enormous price tag.

 

I'm using Lion and most everything so far is working fine. I like the paired back Mac version. Upon trying to print a PDF it caused a crash and I see from this thread that I'm not the only one with this problem. The thing is, I'm wondering if I should install the patches? Reading some of these entries it seems many problems are introduced with new patches. Should I wait for a definitive fix... I don't expect anybody knows how long it will be in coming?  

 

Until then I will have to save files and print on a Windows machine.

I decided to bite the bullet and installed SP3 beta. Happy to say I can print to PDF now.

Yes 2012 is out and it seems to be working fine on Lion, but it has yet to be put on the education website for students like myself. After the 30 day trail I will be back to the same dilema, assuming Autodesk continues to move at its current pace to resolve the incompatibility AND support the EXACT same hardware ACAD Mac 2011 did pre-Lion. The way this issue is being handled is absolutely baffeling.

Of Course Autocad 2012 for Mac is out.  And of course it is Lion Compatible.  And true to form, the Autocad solution for nonacademic users is to hit you with another $4000 + expense rather than support a product (2011) that is less than a year old.
