hmmm but i like toolbars. clean screen solution must be a joke right. right.

 

2011 is still slower with less toolbars than what i had loaded in 2008.

 

i dont want to remember all the key commands. thats nice for some but not for most.

 

 

point being it is 3 times as slow as 2008. why because someone in marketing  fresh outta school want ribbons and other useless fluffy

 

WHAT IS AUTODESK GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

 

NOTHING.

(1) isn't going to happen without turfing a boatload of features, which would impact other features or leave users screaming.  This isn't an "app".

(2) could use some work but would require time and money that likely isn't in the budget, and is very difficult with a constantly moving development code target

(3) it already is (Win 7, Mac) businesses are already running one or the other so Linux would be pure fanboy-ism right now; Mac OS version is only generation one so its not going to have the same smoothness of one with 15+ years of development history

(4) difference between "bug" and "it doesn't follow our industry/work procedure"; the big, program stopping bugs get squished, the minor ones that would take a long time to track down are likely resigned to whatever is left in the budget at the end of development and small bug != simple solution.

 

Maybe, just maybe, with no big MS OS upgrades like Win7 or x64 looming on the horizon the WinAcad team will have a little more time to fix a few things.  But we need to be realistic about what can and cannot be done.  Throwing a fit and screaming "NowNowNowNOW!" isn't going to convince AutoDesk to do anything but close the door.

 

Man.  Whatever happened to patience???

Programmers aren't cheap.  You may have noticed your utility bills inching upwards; imagine you had a building full of power-sucking servers to look after.

I didn't read the whole thread, but if this has not already been posted, take a look:

(Yes, I know that is for 2012, but there are links in there to 2011 and earlier versions)

I have 2012 and 2011 and 2008. that blog is for basic autocad users.

it is something inherent to the core of the autocad engine ...

I have had the same problem as one of the earlier threads with 2011.  My pointer is playing catchup with the mouse, rendering the whole thing completely useless.  The only way I fixed this was to go to Add/Remove programmes and do a repair install on 2011.  It worked until the windows auto upgrade and restart process.  So now I will have to do it again.  Never had this problem till last week.

 

I hope the autocad people don't consider this a 'small bug' to go at the bottom of the list.  I have never heard such an ignorant load of drivell.  The users ARE the market, and should be the number one source of consultation on what to fix next.

 

I would rather know that the next upgrade had no extra features, but was super reliable and fast, and worked graphically with more video cards, and smoother rendering, and handled simple 2D hatching on screen faster.  Forget extra gizmos for a while and just try to get it right.

Actually, it is for all levels of AutoCAD users. Many of the most frequent commenters are expert users with decades of experience.
