Fresh off the press! AutoCAD 2017.1 Update. Autodesk just released an update to AutoCAD 2017 for subscription users. Check your Autodesk Desktop App to install and review the Readme for what to expect in this latest update. AutoCAD 2017.1 Readme

Autodesk recently released an update that has some really exciting features, however, the update is strictly for subscription-only users.  Well, this means that I cannot even provide you a link (because one does not exist) to this update.  So how do you get it?  You can only find it in the Autodesk Desktop App.  It is titled, "AutoCAD 2017.1 English Update 64-bit."   Some of the new features that I find most exciting are. . . You can now import a PDF file that contains SHX geometry.  Several popular SHX fonts are supported.  The performance and reliability of 3DORBIT are improved for rendered visual styles, especially for models with a large number of small blocks containing edges and facets.

General Improvements to Measure Command Precision Visual enhancement: A check mark  now displays next to the default Measure Distance, Angle, Loop, and AreaPrecision value when you access the list for the first time in a file. Previously the check mark only displayed after you made a selection.  Inventor 2017: The checked  measure precision value now persists across sessions in all files. Select a different measure precision value to change the default measure precision value. Previously when you changed the Precision value in existing files, the change was not maintained after saving, closing, and reopening the file.    Important: When you create a new template file in any new version of Inventor (for example Inventor 2017 R2, R3, 2018, and onward) the default measure precision value must be set in both Document Settings Units tab Modeling Dimension Display fields and in the Measure Precision value dialog box.    Enhancements to Projects dialog box (not available in Inventor LT) Access to the Configure Library dialog box has been simplified from two clicks to one click.
