Autodesk working to support Mac OS X Lion for AutoCAD

Autodesk is working around the clock to support Mac OS X Lion coming out this summer for AutoCAD Mac 2011


Autodesk has announced that its AutoCAD 2011 for Mac software product is not yet supported on Apple’s upcoming Mac OS X 10.7 Lion operating system.

Lion Can’t Roar with AutoCAD Yet

The software giant has posted an explanation of the situation on its Services and Support website area detailing the issue. It reads: “If AutoCAD 2011 for Mac is installed on Lion, undesirable side effects can occur, including issues with printing/plotting, Customer Error Reporting (CER), and more.”

It goes on to say, “Our engineers are working round the clock to support Lion for AutoCAD 2011 for Mac, however no support is currently available.”

Beta Lion Program

A beta program will be announced in the near future for a service pack that adds support for Lion to AutoCAD 2011 for Mac. However, until such time as that service pack is available, the company highly recommends not installing AutoCAD 2011 for Mac on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
