ZWCAD2020 Open Beta will be released soon, before that let's take a look on what new features have been added in this new version!

#Highlight Features#

PDF Underlay Manger
To better manage theattached PDF Underlays, PDF Underlay Manager is now ready for our users in thisversion. Users can attach a new PDF Underlay in this dialog box, and detach,reload, unload or open an existing one, enabling them to manage all the PDFUnderlays in the drawing more conveniently.

Data Extraction
Data Extraction enables users to extract various data from objects by filters. There are dozens of different types of data include length, angle, color, layer, area, radius, etc. All these extracted data will be shown in a table or be exported to a file in .zex, .csv or .xls format.

Lisp Debugger
Activated by command VLIDE or VLISP, Lisp Debugger is used to debug lisp programs. Developed based on Visual Studio Code from Microsoft™, it enables developers to debug their lisp programs with breakpoint inspection and modify it easily.

Annotation Scale Reset
a prompt will pop up when opening a drawing with lots of annotation scales. It will remind the users to reset scale list to the default state by removing unneeded custom scales, improving the performance when dealing with annotative objects.

#Important Improvements#

TK Tracking
Previously, if the users want to locate a special point, they need to draw some auxiliary lines. Now, with TK Tracking, they can locate it with a virtual auxiliary line. Please check the command line to know more about this new improvement.

A dialog box called Selection Set will pop out when users click the overlapped objects. The color and type of each overlapped object will be displayed in that dialog box, so that users can easily and quickly select the one they want.

We bought ZWCAD with Dynamic Blöcker, and you just can not swipe that
As you think, this can lead to legal action.

We also visited a course.

Wir haben ZWCAD mit Dynamischen Blöcker erstellen gekauft, und Sie können das so einfach nicht streichen,
wie Sie glauben das kann rechtliche Schritte zur folge haben.

Wir haben dazu auch einen Kurs besucht.

missing features

Edited by mhewett15 at 2019-5-2 23:03

Like Testing out the new ZW CAD. Open up dwg files a lot faster.  Speed is key  :)

Although I would like so see some important missing features:
-  SAVEALL - To save all open Drawings. ( this is an obvious one)
- Dynamic Array - To edit / adjust array on the go, like Dynamic blocks.
- More scr features, like running batch scripts from within ZW CAD.

The list can grow still. But keep up the good work. There are already extra features I haven't seen before within ZW CAD.

Thank you

Hey Heinz~
For the data extraction, sorry to tell you we do not support text data extraction for now, and I have sent your information to our R&D Center, thanks for your opinions! As for the workaround,maybe you can try to use 'Mtext' to input the information, we are able to extract Mtext data now.

For the selection set please make sure you have turned on the toggle or set the variable 'SELECTIONCYCLING' to '2' and try again, I try this feature is ok

Hi Heinz,

Unfortunately Dynamic Blocks is not in our recent plan, but we won't rule out to add this function in the future function.

I just wonder if dynamic blocks is a frequent-used function in daily work? cuz I think this is a very complicated feature, not sure if many users know how to use it.

Thank you for your feedback! In 2020 version we focus on improving the speed. really glad that the speed in indeed fast.

And for the features you mentioned I have all marked down and will send these information to our R&D center.

A good news is the Dynamic array, I think is the associative array we have a clear plan and have been working on it, I believe it will be added to our porduct in a very close future! stay tuned!
