Page Layout Manager
The DraftSight 2023 release includes one of our users' most requested features. The new Page Layout Manager will save you time setting up your print or plot settings. Instead of creating and managing an external print configuration file, you can save all your print or plot parameters in a named setup that is saved inside your drawing or template file.
DraftSight’s associative dimensioning tool is a fantastic way to make sure your dimensions update whenever your geometry changes. But sometimes these associative dimensions become disassociated from their entities. DraftSight 2023 addresses this issue with the introduction of the new Annotation Monitor feature. When it’s enabled, any dimension that has lost its association will display a small, yellow, warning icon next to the offending dimension.
Contextual Ribbon Tab
Access to the commands you need for your current workflow has been made easier in DraftSight 2023 with Contextual Ribbons. Now, instead of a dialog box cluttering your editor, the Ribbon will display a new, active tab that is appropriate for your current task.
DraftSight has provided an add-in for years that acts as a bridge between a HomeByMe project and a functional 2D CAD drawing. That interface has been updated in 2023 to provide a more intuitive user experience. And the underlying program architecture has been completely revamped to give our customers even greater functionality.
Have you ever struggled with selecting the correct entity when multiple items are either on top of each other or within extremely close proximity? Most people have been frustrated by this situation on occasion. We’re happy to provide a solution in DraftSight 2023 with the all-new Cycling Selection feature.
Data Extraction Wizard
DraftSight 2023 lets you dig deep into your drawing files to gather critical information. And we made it as easy as stepping through a Wizard to find and use that valuable data. The new EXTRACTDATA command can be found in the Tables panel of the Annotate tab in the Ribbon Menu. And of course, if you prefer, you can type it into the Command Window.
