That would be a NO to Xclip creation in LT2009.

Matt Ritzman

I look at the interface, and think, "Oh, no. Not again." It looks a lot like Vista/Office 2007 (which my company has yet to adopt).I've used the Steering Wheel in the program formerly known as Alias Sketchbook. It is FANTASTIC if you are using a Stylus and Tablet.I share your excitement for the additions that bring LT comparable with AutoCAD 2000 and beyond. What do you plan to do with your new fields?BTW- Thanks for your consistently awesome posts.


Same old AutoCAD, great new look. Really, Autodesk, limit your new releases to every two years and make them worth it! It will take a couple of months just to get used to the new look but with seemingly few "real" functional upgrades and new features.


For me Export Layout Space as DWG to model space is king. Only waited 8 years for this. No more binding xrefs to issue a dwg of just the info in Layout space. Don't know whether it's in LT but it better be.Other than that apart from xclip, non rectangular VP's etc is modeless Layer manager.What i'd like to see in LT:A new sort of 'Group' to define an assembly and then to be able to just reference in an assembly not the whole freakin drawing everytime.Fine grained XREFing even down to just a layer name from CAD Standards lbrary drawings.Layer groups, to be able to define a group of layers for a task rather than working backwards having to create filters.Viewport rules, not just a scale but visibility based on layer name or prefix or suffix of layer group. Like when a new layer is added to a drawing that is a base xref for other drawings it doesn't appear in all the viewports of all the other drawings. Control layer, text, dims,e tc visibility by self defined rules applied to viewports.


Is it ACAD 2009 LT 32/64 bits works well with Windows Vista?


Kate, I came across your page when searching for "AutoCad comparable".If you have a minute, could you suggest a program for use of basic cad. My company (development) usually has the architect do all cad work, but they want to purchase a program for changes to and simple creation of dwgs. I'm not sure if I should purchase the 2009 AutoCad or go with another, less expensive software such as Bricscad.Thanks for any help/thoughts.


Export layout space as DWG cannot work well with reference files, only the non-referenced objects can be exported to a new dwg file. So I think the previous idea is not correct, or I did something wrong?
Kate, what's your experience? Thanks.
