Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video The new AutoCAD 2020 interface, part of AutoCAD: Spaces and Workspaces.
- [Instructor] The AutoCAD 2020 interface is somewhat different to previous AutoCAD interfaces. You'll see this sort of dark color theme going on, it's like a dark blue-y, gray, black kind of color theme and you'll also notice that all the icons are refined, changed, and a lot more prominent on this darker color scheme that AutoDesk used. So for example, the Quick Access Toolbar now is much cleaner at the top of the screen. If I work across the tabs here, you'll notice that the icons are very colorful, very defined, and that's to support 4K HD on monitors and screens and so on, and you'll notice that everything stands out and it's very clean and it's very tidy. Autodesk could change this quite dramatically to make sure that it's easier on the eye and it's easier to use, primarily because we spend so much time in front of our screens obviously using AutoCAD. So just be aware that the AutoCAD 2020 interface is different and there are differing ways of operating with the icons and with the commands in AutoCAD 2020 as well. So if you are using a slightly older version of AutoCAD to follow along with this particular course, just be aware that the interface will be slightly different to the AutoCAD 2020 interface.
