Is it hot in here? Or is it just me? The latest AutoCAD 2017 hotfix is now available. You may not have encountered any of the issues addressed by these AutoCAD 2017 hotfixes. But the sooner you download and install them all—this is the third one—the sooner you’ll know you’ll never have to. Which could give you that warm fuzzy feeling.

AutoCAD 2017 Hotfix 3 addresses the following issues:

•         3DROTATE command freezes in some instances when used for point clouds.
•         Migration tool may crash when importing customized settings from previous releases.

Installing the Hotfix 3 automatically installs Hotfix 2, if you haven’t already done so.

AutoCAD 2017 Hotfix 2 addresses the following issues:

  • PDFIMPORT fails on an underlay with a relative path for some PDF files.
  • May crash on opening a file when STARTUP setting is changed.
  • May crash if the region and language settings contain long character strings.
  • Layers of Xrefs that are frozen in viewports are plotting ellipses.
  • In some languages, the model documentation commands are not working.
  • The number of hits for GetLineContainment is incorrectly counted.
  • Xrefs show as needing reloading when opened from a network path to a shared folder.
