The following are known
issues with this release:
- In the Block Properties table, you cannot
enter a combination of decimals and fractions. All numerical values
must be either decimals or fractions.
- Dimensional constraints do not behave
as associative dimensions when opened in previous versions of AutoCAD.
To reassociate dimensions, use the DIMREASSOCIATE command.
- By default, a preview of the hatch displays
as you move your mouse over bounded areas. To improve the response
time in large drawings, turn off the hatch preview feature with
the HPQUICKPREVIEW system variable.
- Do NOT change the default location of
the installed Materials2011 folder. Changing
the default location of this folder may cause unpredictable results.
- When you install AutoCAD 2011, by default,
the Autodesk Material Library is also installed. In AutoCAD 2011, AutoCAD 2010
drawings may display with lower resolution textures. This is because
the Autodesk Material Library 2011 has lower resolution than the
Autodesk Material Library 2010. For image fidelity, install the
Autodesk Material Library 2011 Medium Image Library. In the AutoCAD
2011 installation wizard, on the Select Products to Install page,
select Autodesk Material Library Medium Image Library.
- HDR and EXR files are not supported even
though the format displays in the Materials Editor. If you use materials
in these formats, your drawing will render as all black.
- In the Duplicate Appearance Name dialog
box, if you select Replace, the material is not replaced in the
Materials Library as expected. To workaround, in the Duplicate Appearance
Name dialog box, select Keep Both.
- If you create a Material library on a
network computer, you must restart AutoCAD to make it available
on your network. If you do not and attempt to use the file on other
network computers, an error displays and you cannot open the file.
- Autoconstraining a
polyline that has many points may significantly reduce AutoCAD performance.
Rotating Constrained Geometry
- Rotating horizontally or vertically constrained
geometry may give unpredictable results.
- On Windows XP (64-bit), toolclips (videos
within tooltips) do not display.
- The transparency property
of objects is ignored when exporting to WMF, SAT, STL, EPS, DXX,
or DGN formats.
- The effect of locked layer fading and
other fading effects (xrefs, images, DWF and DGN underlays) is cumulative
with object-based transparency. As a result, objects that use both
fading and transparency may be difficult to see.
