Autodesk was busy over the Labor Day weekend and dropped a new AutoCAD 2019.1.1 Update to AutoCAD 2019 on the day after. In spite of the small incremental name of this Update this is a pretty significant AutoCAD Update with many fixes not explicated listed in the readme.
Simply put – you probably want to immediately install this puppy as it fixes a lot of annoying/frustrating/bad things in the core AutoCAD 2019 platform code. It didn’t appear to eat my installed AutoCAD 2019 installed apps.
AutoCAD 2019.1.1 Update is available via the Autodesk Desktop App or via download from the Autodesk subscription site.
The update includes previous AutoCAD 2019.1 Updates and relevant Hot Fixes. The update install requires access to the original install resources.
This Update should be installed by Oct 17, 2018 or Autodesk Rendering, Shared Views, and Plant collaboration feature available via the Autodesk Cloud will be inaccessible.
The AutoCAD 2019.1.1 new features list does not currently appear on the AutoCAD 2019 Help What’s New page, but maybe we can expect update to that page soon. Maybe not.
- The new and remaining icons on the Ribbon and the Quick Access toolbar have been updated to the new icon style.
- The Command window now supports the light and dark themes.
- Drawing Compare has been improved to support objects that were created with the AutoCAD Architecture specialized toolset, such as wall objects.
