    IntelliCAD 6.2 Released By IntelliCAD Technology Consortium

     IntelliCAD 6.2 was released on 4/27/2006.

    New Features:

    Assign true colors and color book colors

    You’ve always been able to add color to your drawings using index colors, but now you use two new color features:

    Work with raster images using ADeko Raster

    IntelliCAD Professional version includes new raster imaging software to help you work with images in your drawings. Working with raster images is similar to previous IntelliCAD versions, with easy-to-use features located on the Image menu in IntelliCAD.

    Export to PDF and 3D DWF format

    You can export drawings to two new formats:

    Use entity snaps

    When using the extension option with Intersection Snap and Apparent Intersection Snap, IntelliCAD draws dashed extension lines to help guide you as you use the extension snap option.

    If you are working in the command bar, you can modify the active command by typing m2p or mtp to enable a one-time snap to the midpoint of two points that you specify.

    Edit text in the command line

    The command bar and Prompt History window include enhanced text editing, including cutting, copying, and pasting text; copying the last command line or the entire command history; and repeating a previously executed command.

    Create wipeout entities

    Wipeouts are unique entities that can help you hide areas of your drawing. They display with the current background color, so the details behind the wipeout do not display or print. However, if your version of IntelliCAD does not include raster image capability (that is, does not include an Image menu), wipeout entities display, but the details behind the wipeouts also display.

    Create audio notes from existing *.wav files

    In addition to recording audio notes in IntelliCAD and attaching them to entities, you can now create audio notes from existing *.wav files. Audio notes created from an existing *.wav file are saved in the drawing file and the separate *.wav file remains unchanged.

    View thumbnails of drawings

    When you open or save a drawing, drawing files can be displayed in a number of ways, including by filename with or without the additional details. Now you can also view thumbnail images of drawing files.

    You can also view thumbnail images when you browse drawing files on your computer using programs that came with your operating system, such as Windows® File Explorer or My Computer.

    Use new and enhanced system variables

    New system variables include: AUDIOICONCOLOR, NOMUTT, OSNAPCOORD, OSNAPHATCH, OSNAPZ, and RTSKIPCOUNT.

    Enhanced system variables include: CECOLOR and SNAPCOLOR.

    COM API calls (IntelliCAD Professional versions)

    IntelliCAD now uses the 6.4 VBA SDK version.

    Print parameters can be set correctly through the COM API.

    More fixes

     Technical Notes:

     

    Importing 3D DWF files not supported

    While you can export a drawing to 3D DWF format, you cannot import 3D DWF files. If you attempt to import a 3D DWF file, the drawing in IntelliCAD will be blank. Importing 3D DWF files is unsupported at this time.

    2D DWF files may produce errors

    If you open or audit a 2D DWF file, you may receive error messages or the file may become unusable. The ability to work with 2D DWF files is still under development.

    Wipeout entities print as filled polygons

    Wipeout entities print as polygons filled with the same color as the current background color. In some cases this may cause unexpected print results, for example, if printing on colored paper.
