One thing I have been doing on both my Blackberry and iPhone is taking the AutoCAD documentation with me on my mobile devices so I can access them from anywhere. It is a a cool trick to appear to known each and every system variable and command during a conversation with someone, as long as they don't realize you have the documentation on your phone and you really don't know everything AutoCAD. What I want to do in this post is to give you the AutoCAD documentation in the palm of your hand.

AutoCAD customers have been asking for the option to rotate the view with their associated viewport. This was a top item in the AUGI AutoCAD Wish List June 2007 submitted by Bill N. With AutoCAD 2010 we have added the ability to rotate objects in a viewport with the viewport easily without having to become a UCS ninja master.
I was doing some planning work for a new pond in my backyard and thought I would share a cool tip. When drawing a 2D layout of my yard’s landscaping I was presented with the problem of duplicating the flowerbeds border with the grass regions. Instead of copying and drawing outlines which could cause problems with the splines I used for the curved shapes, I used the trick of creating a new boundary polyline with a Hatch. Below is a tutorial on how you can do the same trick and as a bonus showed my design styled in Autodesk Impression.

On August 22nd 2008, Autodesk Subscription members, as part of their benefits, can download the following new feature releases:
