    Default Upgrade to 11.2

    Greetings people.

    was the last upgrade to v 11.2 worth it?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Lightbulb Or even upgrade to 11.3

    MicroGDS 11.3 was eventually released a couple of weeks ago. You can read the official information about it at MicroGDS Updates.

    It works on all current PC versions of Windows, can use AutoCAD 2013 data, goes faster than versions 2010 (11.0) to 11.2, and contains several smaller new features and improvements. Most of the new stuff in 11.3 is in response to users in Japan, who have had several intermediate updates to 11.2. I think it's a good release, but I'm biased since I did much of the programming.

    Thanks for the info.

    Have downloaded the "trial version"

    Disappointed in the fuzzy buttons.

    also miss some of the dropdown ... like Toolbar settings.

    I only use the mouse and buttons, and absolutely no keystrokes, rarely dropdowns either ...

    Also could not find where to export in say PDF ...

    but i'll give it a try

    Maybe even find out about this BIM thing

    Regards all.

    The buttons are a bit sharper if used as medium size. Many of the small and large button images are calculated by scaling the designs for medium buttons, and these never look quite so good.

    When working for Informatix Software International Ltd, I spent some time trying to improve the button scaling algorithm, and it's better than it once was, but only a bit better. Brian (I think) designed a lot of small-size buttons, but these have not changed significantly since MicroGDS 2010.

    Toolbar settings are still there. Try Window > Profile > Customize... (or Ctrl+T) for the Customize dialog, which has a Toolbars tab which might look familiar. The Shortcuts tab in this dialog replaces the one in File > Preferences up to MicroGDS 10.

    File > Publish... is the command with export-only file formats, including PDF. It's in the File toolbar, fourth from the right, tooltip "Publish window" -- just to the right of "Help" in the menu bar if you're using small toolbar icons.

    File > Batch Publish... allows you to create a single multi-page PDF from any number of window definitions, even across several drawing files. That's also new since version 10, but not new in 11.3.

    (There are related File > Export... and Batch Export... commands which covers the three-dimensional data formats which you could read back in as MicroGDS drawings. For completeness I ought to mention Batch Print... which is like Batch Publish but to a printer rather than a file.)
