    IntelliCAD 6.5 Released By IntelliCAD Technology Consortium

    IntelliCAD 6.5 was released on 7/7/2008.

    New Features:

    Performance enhancements

    Performance has been enhanced considerably when using real-time zoom, real-time pan, and saving drawings.

    Toolbar and menu icons

    The IntelliCAD user interface has been enhanced with new 24-bit icons for all color toolbar icons and menus.

    Use polar tracking

    Polar tracking is a new tool used to help you draw with precision. When polar tracking is turned on, guides display on the screen automatically at specified polar angle increments.

    Check the spelling of text

    You can check the spelling of single-line text, multiline text, paragraph text, attributes, attribute definitions, and dimension text. Additional features include loading dictionaries from different sources, including various languages, and adding your own words to a custom dictionary.

    Copy multiple entities

    Now it’s easier to copy multiple entities. IntelliCAD defaults to prompting for additional copies of selected entities during the Copy command.

    Work with additional image formats

    The number of image formats available for drawings has been expanded. You can include images in the following formats: ECW, JPG 2000, ERS, ALG, HDR, DAT, DOQ, FST, NTF, ASC, IMG, DEM, DDF, DT0 and DT1, and HDF (including MET, L1R, and L1G).

    Layer toolbar

    You can now use the Layer toolbar to specify layout-specific layer settings. The Layer toolbar dynamically sizes, making it easier to manage large layer lists or drawings with long layer names.

    VBILOAD command

    A newly implemented VBILOAD command allows you to load a VBI file.

    Customize the status bar and menus using DIESEL

    You can use DIESEL from the command line, in MNU menu files, and in LISP to customize the status bar and menus.

    Use new and enhanced system variables

    New or enhanced system variables include: AUTOSNAP, COPYMODE, DCTCUST, DCTMAIN, DCTMAINPATH, DIMTFAC, POLARADDANG, POLARANG, POLARDIST, POLARMODE, SNAPTYPE, and TRACKPATH.
