Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video The new AutoCAD 2019 interface, part of AutoCAD: Reference Manager.
- [Narrator] This particular course has been recorded using AutoCAD 2019. Now, just be aware, if you're using an older version of AutoCAD the icons and the interface will be subtly different. That's because in AutoCAD 2019 Autodesk did what they call an interface change, and that interface change basically gave us different icons and a slightly different layout for the icons and the interface in AutoCAD. You'll notice this dark interface, this dark color, the gray and the black, for example. That's how the AutoCAD 2019 interface was created by Autodesk. But more importantly, that dark kind of interface, the dark colors, allow the icons in the interface to stand out. So if you look at the ribbon in AutoCAD 2019, and jump to the tabs on the ribbon, you'll see the icons are very colorful and very defined, and they're like that for using on things like HD and 4K monitors that you can get nowadays, and it just makes the whole interface look a lot cleaner, a lot tidier, and just has that definition to it that you don't have in the older versions of AutoCAD. So just be aware if you are using an older version of AutoCAD to follow along with this course some of the icons might be different, they might be a different color, they might look a little different, as well. So if I jump to the Home tab, there, for example, let's have a look at Trim and Extend. You'll see that the icons are different to older versions of AutoCAD. So just be aware of that when you're working through the course, if you are using an older version of AutoCAD.
