Minimize redrawing and save time when working with DWG files by importing PDF vector data directly in this file format.

Be more productive with these new usability improvements in Reports.

  • Add related instances to a report definition’s column properties with the From Related Object setting. 
  • Add common properties of two or more columns in the report definition. 

Save time by using the Remove Parametric Variables option, in the block’s reset pop-up menu to remove all assigned variables from a block. This option is available for blocks that are placed with variables assigned to their edges.
