Advanced AutoCAD® 2018 Exercise Workbook

 

By Cheryl R. Shrock and Steve Heather

 

Overview

 

The Advanced AutoCAD® 2018 Exercise Workbook has been helping students, teachers, architects, designers and manufacturers to truly master the software for more than two decades.  And now this work is better than ever, with the inclusion of both inch and metric measurements side-by-side. 

      The 2018 version of the software boasts the new feature of being able to import SHX fonts when importing documents into AutoCAD®.  With past versions, you could only import SHX fonts as objects that were included in the PDF, which meant that users could not alter the text in any way.  In this 2018 version of the software, the text is fully editable – the same as TrueType text and fonts.  That’s a tremendous advantage for architects and designers, who use SHX fonts extensively in their drawings.  In this book, these new features are explained and thoroughly illustrated so they can be combined with existing AutoCAD® options, and users can maximize the full power of this versatile software.

      Written by Cheryl Shrock and Steve Heather, two bestselling authors and official Beta Testers of AutoCAD® software, this is an invaluable resource for the thousands of students, designers, architects, and manufacturers who are just learning AutoCAD®, or getting up to speed with the latest version of the software.

 

New and Improved Features

 

  • Introduces the ability to import SHX fonts when importing a PDF document into AutoCAD.
  • Also covers the new ability to convert single rows of text into paragraphs.
  • Provides instruction on exciting new AutoCAD features released early to beta testers.
  • All exercises include metric equivalents alongside the original imperial (inch) measurements.
