Introducing AutoCAD 2022 for Mac: Check Out How You Can Work More Efficiently

Product News

By The AutoCAD Team

We are excited to share that AutoCAD 2022 for Mac and AutoCAD 2022 LT for Mac are now available and offer new ways to save time and improve the way you work through a connected design experience.

Among the new features and enhancements, you can stay connected to your block content anytime, anywhere with the enhanced Block palette and Block libraries. You can now save valuable time and effort with customized shortcut keys and use Recent inputs to easily repeat commands.

A subscription to AutoCAD 2022 for Mac or AutoCAD LT 2022 for Mac includes access to the AutoCAD web and mobile apps, so you can work in AutoCAD whether you are designing at the jobsite, at your office, or from your backyard.

The web and mobile apps let you make changes in real time, share DWG files, and markup CAD drawings on the go. And with the AutoCAD web app, you can now upload drawing templates, plot styles, and other support files to create DWG files that better meet your company’s drafting standards.

Let’s zoom in on the new features available in AutoCAD 2022 for Mac and AutoCAD LT 2022 for Mac.

Get greater flexibility with enhanced Block libraries

New enhancements to Block libraries let you display recently used blocks in the Block library tab for convenient and faster access. You can now specify a folder, drawing file, or any block definition stored in a drawing to insert as a block in the current drawing. If you’re using a cloud storage file or folder, you can also share block libraries across devices. Block libraries stored in the cloud are indicated on the Blocks palette.

Efficiently sort and manage blocks with Blocks palette improvements

By popular customer demand, further improvements have been made to the Blocks palette. It can display the blocks as a list, which can be sorted by name and type. You also gain easy access to insert a drawing as a block from any tab on the Blocks palette. Finally, there is a new option to rename the block definition while inserting a block—even if a different block definition already exists.

Export layouts directly to a new DWG file

Simplify your workflow with Export layout, which saves all visible objects from the current layout to the model space of a new drawing. Objects that are outside the boundaries of “paper” in the layout are also exported. The new command EXPORTLAYOUT creates a visual representation of the current layout in the model space of a new drawing.

Quickly repeat commands with Recent input

It is now easier than ever to repeat commands or command input using Recent Input. If there is no command active, the Recent Input menu contains the recent commands. If a command is active, the menu contains recent coordinates. Use the command, INPUTHISTORYMODE, to control the content and location of the user input history.
