12.5 Universal

Recommended Posts

I have just been sent news about 12.5:

Its Universal

supports Google .KLM files for exporting to Google Earth

Supports UK drawing standards (hooray!)

680 Plumbing symbols from Kohler

DWG/DXF improvements (how about DWF too?)

Batch PDF for multple sheet layers

improved Door/Window/Roof/Detailing objects

and a bunch more things; it all sounds pretty useful.

I've not found much notices posted on the web, so I'm putting it up here. The supplier in UK, ComputersUnlimited are who sent this to me, but predictably of them their website has no real news about 12.5 ? I'm really looking forward to getting my mitts on this.

Anyone else had a chance to use it?

I'm downloading the updater at the moment from


There is also a 'Whats new in 12.5' document. The only thing I noticed straight away was that it does not mention rotating the 2D view, which seems to have been a fundamental problem for too long now.

Oh well, reserve judgement till download is installed!

Yes. Downloaded and installed on both, my G5 and my MacBook. And it's fast!!! I'm working with very large files, and speed increase is noticeable, even on G5. And MacBook 1.83 seems to be faster then G5DP 2.3!!!

Note: if you use hardware dongle on OSX, you should update HASP driver (take it from aladdin site)
