- Multifunctional Grips
Quick editing options appear when you fly over mid and end point grips
Fly over entity grips and you will discover new contextual shortcut menus offering quick editing features that can vary based on the entity type: edit the length or stretch an entity from its end point grip, change the radius of an arc, insert a vertex on a polyline or convert an arc into a polyline.
- Polylines Editing Improvements
Add vertex to midpoint, convert a segment to an arc or line and more
New options in the command EDITPOLYLINE offer an increased productivity in the edition of polylines. You may convert an arc segment into a line and vice-versa, you may also add a vertex to the midpoint of a segment and change its position. Other new options include Taper and Reverse.
- Relative Angles in Coordinate Input
Use the “@” prefix to enter the angle from the last given segment
You can now use the “@” prefix to enter relative angles just like you are already used to for relative distances. This unique ability simplifies significantly the coordinate input when you draw successive lines or polyline segments.
- Trim and PowerTrim in Hatches and Gradients
Unrivaled flexibility to edit the shape of your hatches and gradients
You can now trim hatches and gradients with the TRIM and POWERTRIM commands. It’s never been easier to edit the shape of the areas containing hatches and gradients. Divided hatches and gradients maintain associativity and remain as one entity.
- Advanced PDF to DWG conversion
New features allow to recover more information from the PDF
Besides converting or batch-processing your PDF files into DWG files, ARES Commander offers now the option to recover the layers organization and names but also to maintain the LineStyle and LineWeight of entities.
- Insert Center Lines
Insert Centerlines between pairs of lines, concentric arc and polyline segments
Very popular for Mechanical design but also very helpful in other situations, the CENTERLINE command will draw a line at equidistance of the pair of entities you selected. The CENTER linestyle will be assigned by default and you can fine tune the extension of the Centerline.
- Pattern Along Any Path
Copy entities along a path defined by another entity
Array multiple copies of a chosen entity along a line, polyline, arc, circle, ellipse or spline. Different options let you define the distance and total number of insertions but also how to align each insertion with the chosen path.
- Split Dimension Lines
Split Dimension lines and extension lines to avoid any overlap
Improve the readability of your annotations, when a dimension line or an extension line is overlapping another entity the command SPLITDIMENSION will help you split them with a default or manual distance without breaking the associativity.
- Advanced Block Attributes Editing
New dialog for advanced editing of block attributes and properties
Select one or more block insertions and use this new dialog to edit one or more attributes but also block properties such as layer, linestyle, color, text style and more.
- Dynamic Print Preview
The Print settings dialog has been redesigned to improve productivity
Enjoy a reorganized dialog for Print settings with a dynamic preview representing your drawing as it would be printed. You no longer need to switch between settings and preview to adjust your print configuration.
- More XtraTools™ Commands
More power features to help you solve tedious tasks – Now also on Mac and Linux
Take a look to the XtraTools² menu or ribbon tab and you will discover many new features to manage layouts viewports, import/export dimension styles, create nice text labels, scale blocks, define draw order by color, and more.
