ZWCAD 2018 SP2 Improvements

In the previous article, the important new features of ZWCAD 2018 SP2 have been revealed. But that’s all about the most powerful release? Of course not. There are other amazing points which were improved and optimized based on our users’ needs in their actual working environment.

 

 

For Interface, Comfort is the Priority

Interface has been further optimized by changing the drawing area from light gray to dark gray, which makes your eyes more comfortable. What’s more, by lightening the color of menus in both Ribbon Interface and Classic Interface, more notable contrast is realized to distinguish different areas, bringing you wonderful visual experience with clear layering.

Tool Palettes Improved

The Properties option, including the Name, Scale, Rotation, Layer, etc., is now added to the right-click menu of a block or a command in the Tool Palettes, making it convenient for you to edit the properties of a block or a command directly in the Tool Palettes.

BLOCKEDITMODE

It is a new system variable added to control whether REFEDIT or BEDIT is used to edit a block when double-clicking it.

 

Shortcut Keys to Switch Model/Layout

Now you can switch between Model and Layout simply by pressing Ctrl + PageUp and Ctrl + PageDown.

 

We believe that the optimization of details actually means a lot to our users, so we spare no effort to enhance your user experience by improving the very tiny points.
