  • HideEntities — Hides selected entities
  • IsolateEntities — Isolates selected entities by hiding all other entities
  • UnisolateEntities — Shows entities that were hidden with the IsolateEntities or HideEntities commands
  • SelectMatching — Selects drawing entities of the same type and with shared properties for subsequent commands
  • New commands for Annotation Scaling:
    • AnnEntityScale — Adds and removes annotation scales for specified annotative entities (dialog box variant)
    • AnnEntityScale — Adds and removes annotation scales for specified annotative entities (command window variant)
    • AnnEntityScaleAdd — Updates annotative entities to support the drawing’s active annotation scale
    • AnnEntityScaleRemove — Updates annotative entities to remove the drawing’s active annotation scale from the entities’ annotation scales
    • AnnReset — Resets all scale representations of specified annotative entities to their original positions

New Features:

  • Quick Input — Provides a command entry interface near the pointer (with tooltips, input boxes, and construction lines)

  • Multiline BlockAttributes are supported by the MakeBlockAttribute, EditBlockAttribute, and EditAnnotation commands. The Multiline BlockAttribute Formatting pop-up toolbar helps you edit and format multiline BlockAttributes
  • Heads-up toolbar — Appears when you select entities and lets you zoom to the selected entities, change the entities Layer, LineStyle, and LineWidth, dimension entities, or create a Block from the entities
  • Dimension location snap: Forces dimension lines to be placed at specified distances from measured linear entities and between successive dimension lines or at specified angles for radial and diameter dimensions

New System Variables:

  • ATTIPE — Determines the type of pop-up toolbar to display when editing multiline BlockAttributes in place
  • ATTMULTI — Controls whether you can create multiline BlockAttributes with the commands to define BlockAttribute

    • ANNOTATIVE DWG — Determines whether the current drawing will act as annotative Block when inserted into another drawing
    • CANNOSCALE — Specifies the name of the current annotation scale for the active workspace (Model, or Viewports on layout Sheets)
    • CANNOSCALEVALUE — Specifies the value of the current annotation scale for the active workspace (Model, or Viewports on layout Sheets)
    • DIMANNO — Returns whether the current DimensionStyle is an annotative style
    • HPANNOTATIVE — Controls whether new Hatches or filled areas are annotative entities
    • MSLTSCALE — Determines whether LineStyles on the Model tab or in Viewports of layout Sheets are scaled by annotation scale settings
    • SAVE FIDELITY — Controls visual fidelity for annotative entities in legacy drawing files (DWG R2007 and earlier formats)
    • SELECTIONANNODISPLAY — Specifies whether annotative entities, if selected, show all representations of the annotation scales assigned to them, or only the original scale
  • New system variables for Quick Input methods:
    • DYNDIGRIP — Determines which input boxes are displayed as you move an EntityGrip
    • DYNDIVIS — Controls the Quick Input dimension input method when you stretch an entity using an EntityGrip
    • DYNMODE — Controls the use of Quick Input pointer input and dimension input methods
    • DYNPICOORDS. Controls whether the Quick Input pointer input method uses relative or absolute coordinates
    • DYNPIFORMAT — Controls whether the Quick Input pointer input method uses polar or Cartesian coordinates
    • DYNPIVIS — Controls the Quick Input pointer input method
    • DYNPROMPT — Turns on or off the use of prompt tooltips and command input boxes display for Quick Input
    • DYNTOOLTIPS — Determines which kind of tooltips are affected by appearence settings
    • TOOLTIPMERGE — Determines whether to merge EntitySnap (ESnap) tooltips and Quick Input tooltips into a single tooltip
