- [Narrator] Let's take a moment and talk about AutoCAD as a software product in general. The first release of AutoCAD occurred in December of 1982. And it has continued to this day as the most ubiquitous computer aided drafting and design application available. AutoCAD release 12, debuting in June of 1992, was the last version to support both Windows and Mac operating systems for the next 16 years. In November of 1993, AutoCAD LT was released as a lower cost version of AutoCAD with somewhat reduced capabilities. In October of 2010, AutoCAD for Mac 2011 was released. The following year, AutoCAD for Mac 2012 was joined by AutoCAD for Mac 2012 LT. I want to mention this because whether you are using AutoCAD for Windows or AutoCAD for Mac, the LT version or the full version, AutoCAD files can be saved in exchange with either platform and on almost any release, enabling you to share files with your colleagues no matter which operating system they are using. In a later video, we'll go into the differences in file types and saving a file backwards for compatibility with earlier releases. However the DWG file that is native to AutoCAD works the same for Mac and Windows. So, I wanted to point out that no matter what version, saving files between the full version or LT, Mac and PC should cause no issues or compatibility errors.
