    Autodesk has now released AutoCAD 2016 for Mac and AutoCAD LT 2016 for Mac.

    As expected, this new release includes a number of performance improving features, and works with OS X El Capitan. The most interesting news though are the NEW features for the 2016 features. 

    • Xref path management – You can now map Xref file paths from your Mac to Windows machines, including networked servers, making working cross-platform even easier.

    Convert Text to Mtext (TXT2MTXT)

    Break-line Symbol (BREAKLINE)

    Explode Attributes to Text (BURST)

    Move/Copy/Rotate (MOCORO)

    Block Replace (BLOCKREPLACE)

    Super Hatch (SUPERHATCH)
