CAD X11® Enhancements in year 2001

  1. A Windows file dialog is now supported for all file I/O when running CAD X11 with the common interface.  To activate this option, you must edit the icon properties of the CAD X11 Common Interface icon.  Change the target line to "c:\cadx11\cadx11.exe  -common  -w".  (release 3.3.76) - January 7, 2001
  2. The MOSS interface (menu 7.18) has been removed (release 3.3.76) - January 7, 2001
  3. Macros now work when running CAD X11 with the windows interface (release 3.3.76) - January 7, 2001
  4. A recent problem with mirroring of arc/circles has been corrected (release 3.3.76) - January 7, 2001
  5. A recent problem with 3D rotation of arcs (menu 13.6 and 13.8) has been corrected (release 3.3.77) - January 11, 2001
  6. A typical installation of CAD X11 will no longer load the network license manager.   If you need to load the license manager on your server, use the custom choice during installation (release 3.3.77) - January 11, 2001
  7. The on-line help for the common interface has been substantially corrected and updated.  Items 2-15 are complete and menus 1-6 (System Modals - Database Management) of item 1 are complete - February 21, 2001
  8. The display of CAD X11 text has been improved (does not apply to TrueType fonts).   Previously the last pixel was not being displayed for each polyline stroke of a CAD X11 font (release 3.3.78) - February 26, 2001
  9. The common interface on-line help for Menu 7.0 has been updated (release 3.3.78) - February 26, 2001
  10. An infrequent error with the viewer where plotting was disabled has been corrected (release 3.3.79) - March 8, 2001
  11. The on-line help for the common interface has been corrected and updated for menus 7-12 (Plot/Input/Output - Other Curves) - March 8, 2001
  12. The on-line help for the common interface has been corrected and updated for menus 13-15 (Entity Manipulation - Extended Geometry) - March 19, 2001
  13. The on-line help for the common interface has been corrected and updated for menus 13-15 (Drafting - Applications) - March 25, 2001
  14. The tolerance/fraction height modal is now functional when there are text based entities in the drawing with fractions and/or tolerances (release 3.3.85) - April 25, 2001
  15. An infrequent error when plotting direct to a Windows based printer using either the Common or Windows Interface has been corrected.  The problem was that occasionally choosing 2 copies would print 4, choosing 3 would print 9, etc.  This has been fixed (release 3.3.86) - May 10, 2001
  16. When creating DXF files, the CAD X11 entity colors are now mapped to the the standard AutoCAD colors using RGB values (release 3.3.91) - September 17, 2001
  17. When reading DXF files, the CAD X11 entity colors are now mapped to the the standard AutoCAD colors using RGB values (release 3.3.92) - October 2, 2001
  18. A text edit window has been installed in place of the previous text editing menu (16.13 of the Common Interface) (release 3.3.94) - November 15, 2001
  19. When reading DXF files, multi-line text notes are now supported, the character aspect ratio calculation has been improved, and delimiting braces around blocks of text on a line are now removed (release 3.3.94) - November 15, 2001
  20. When reading DXF files, blocks with insertion of other blocks is now supported two levels deep (release 3.3.94) - November 15, 2001

  23. When using the Common Interface, the function key CTRL J will display the drafting modals in a popup dialog box, identical to the style used for the Windows interface.   This function key is always valid (release 3.3.95) - December 6, 2001
  24. When reading DXF files, support has been added for processing polyface meshes (release 3.3.95) - December 6, 2001
  25. When reading DXF files, color and line type interpretation for ATTRIB and INSERT entities has been improved (release 3.3.95) - December 6, 2001
  26. When reading DXF files, a fix has been added for linear dimensions on occasion not being interpreted as vertical (release 3.3.95) - December 6, 2001
  27. A fatal crash that occurs when reading DXF files that contain MTEXT entities without any text has been corrected (release 3.3.95) - December 6, 2001
  28. When reading DXF files, color interpretation for ATTRIB entities following INSERT entities has been improved (release 3.3.96) - December 10, 2001
  29. When reading DXF files, an infrequent error positioning MTEXT entities has been improved (release 3.3.96) - December 10, 2001

  31. When reading DXF files, the color of dimensions is now controlled by the DIMENSION entity. DXF supports different colors of dimension lines than the dimension text, but CAD X11 does not support this distinction (release 3.3.96) - December 10, 2001
  32. When reading DXF files, INSERT entities with a definition unit normal of 0,0,-1 are now interpreted correctly (release 3.3.96) - December 10, 2001
  33. When reading DXF files, the text rotation angle for MTEXT entities is now interpreted correctly (release 3.3.96) - December 10, 2001
  34. When reading DXF files, for ATTDEF entities, the tag string is used instead of the default text string (release 3.3.96) - December 10, 2001
  35. When reading DXF files, LEADER entities are now supported (release 3.3.96) - December 10, 2001
  36. When reading DXF files, limit style dimensional text is now supported (release 3.3.96) - December 10, 2001
  37. When reading DXF files, all supported dimension types should now display in some fashion.  Previously, some entities were being omitted because of an incorrect limit on CADX11 interpreting entity flags (release 3.3.96) - December 10, 2001
  38. Arcs/circles in 3D space are now positioned properly when creating or reading dxf files (release 3.3.97) - December 26, 2001
