 Extremely disappointed with the current version.

Jenny,
I am an old customer of ZWCAD. Recently paid for the upgrade to 2017. The authorized partner of ZWCAD in India, (my city PUNE, Maharashtra State) asked me to download the beta version from ZWSOFT site. I was really disappointed to find that there is nothing new and many features are missing in this version. The annotative dimensions not working, no design center, no tool palettes, dimensions given in feet and inches with units set to architectural does not work. (It does not recognize 2' as an input!). The graphics - resolution of icons, text on screen etc. are worse. These are just a few problems with a preliminary look at the software. Looks like there might be many more problems which will be found in time. Feels like it has gone back to stone age. I hope that I get a version that is complete soon and which really shows some improvements. Otherwise i would like to revert back to ZWCAD + 2014 which is working great. I hope i have not wasted my money for the upgrade.

The reason that in 2017 even worse than in 2014, and have paid money.
Stone Age version?

Das kommt daher das 2017 noch schlechter ist als 2014, und Geld dafür bezahlt haben.
Steinzeitversion ?

New version is here, and even worse than the old version.
Bug Bug Bug

Befehl: _vernum
VERNUM = "2016.07.18(5653)_x64" (schreibgeschützt)

Neue Version ist da, und noch schlimmer als die alte Version.

Hi Sudhanva,

Here is Jeffrey from ZWSOFT.
Thank you for your support in ZWCAD 2017.


For these problems:
"The annotative dimensions not working, no design center, no tool palettes, dimensions given in feet and inches with units set to architectural does not work. (It does not recognize 2' as an input!). The graphics - resolution of icons, text on screen etc. are worse. These are just a few problems with a preliminary look at the software."

The annotative scale, design center, tool palette functions are not supported yet. We already have plans to improve that.
And the architectural unit problem is already reported to R&D to resolve.

We have updated ZWCAD 2017(vernum=2016.07.18(5653)), you can download it from our official website.

VERNUM = "2016.07.18(5653)_x64"

Is there a 32 bit version?

No, whatever I choose, result is the same, 64 bit version.

Eidt 2:
VBA error loading...
Netload still error loading...

Hm, what am I doing here at all?!

32/64-bit versions are available for ZWCAD 2017 (2016.07.18(5653)).

For current version, the VBA and .NET interfaces are not completed yet, and they will be improved soon.

Thanks for the reply Jeffrey,

I will check the updated version. But from your mail it seems that the problems posted by me are not solved in this update. Hoping for solutions asap.
