AutoCAD 2013 Wish List?

Is there an official place to request features for the next version of AutoCAD?

 

What I would like to see are center-point grips added to polygonal elements, just as a center grip appears for circles.  An implied center-point grip would be useful too, for instance, for selecting two normal lines and having a center point calculated between the implied geometry area.

Until the augi wish list is resurrected, you can use this.

I would also like to see a Layer Order option in the Layers Palette.  We work with a lot of layers of hatches, and the HATCHTOBACK command is great for getting hatches behind the linework, but it doesn't always retain the correct relationship between hatches.

By default every layer could be at layer order 0 and then you could force layers to sit above or below that by specifying a layer order using negative or positive integers.

There are several AutoLisp programs that helps you do that, a search will turn out several, like this one :

BTW, most of the top AUGI wish list stuff can be solved by existing or easy-to-do Lisp routines...

Fa3ien:

I did not consider a LISP routine for doing this -- thanks for the suggestion.  I will look into it, but I still think that managing the layer order in the Layers Palette with all the other layers attributes would make the most sense.  The layers palette is an easy-to-use graphical interface and it's quick and easy to make changes.  Editing LISP routines seems to be a more awkward solution.

I would like them to fix so that Hatches doesn't loose there association within DynBlk when you stretch the areas they are associative to.. :smileytongue:

*Note* Not 100%-positive that this is an AutoCad related problem, but it is darn annoying.

 

*Edit* Ohh ohh and a Burst commando! that explodes a block but all attributes filled in it converts to text instead of the Attributes becoming visible with there tags showing.

Signature, sincerely... //Adam

How about getting my $500's worth in REAL ACAD features!!!???

 

Looks like most if not all the $ goes to Revit, etc. and other stuff many of us will never use!

Rafuselier:

 

I felt the same way at first, until I realized that as long as every third release is worthwhile, it still works out to be the same as buying an upgrade every three years.  For our firm, AutoCAD 2011 was a huge upgrade in terms of adding useful features.  So yes, while 2012 seems feature-lacking, there may be something useful for some people.  As long as 2013 or 2014 delivers another worthwhile set of features and/or performance improvements for us we'll be happy.  Think of the lack-luster in-between releases as free service packs if you'd like.

That is what my BURST command has been doing forever.
