GstarCAD8 has been released. The new release includes a number of bug fixes, reinstated commands, and new features.
This version has built-in a digitizer tablet command-driver. Users can execute a TABLET command to calibrate, configure, and turn on and off an attached digitizing tablet. Digitizers are often used along with takeoff software because they can quickly measure, transfer and store quantities seen on a blue print. Additional benefits are found in features such as a dimension list, which can be saved and used a future estimate, the company says.
Another addition is Xtra Grips for Objects Edition. Polyline as well hatch objects in this version now have extra grips to make editing them easier. Users can stretch a polyline or hatch object by holding and dragging any extra grip to control its shape.
Copylink Command allows users to copy the current drawing view to the clipboard and then paste the contents of the clipboard into another document as a linked OLE object. The new SPELL command lets users check the spelling of all text as it is entered in a drawing and specify the specific language dictionary that is used.
