AutoCAD 2012 for Mac Service Pack 1 Is Here!

Maybe you already know about this via notification about updates inside AutoCAD, but, anyway, I want to inform everyone, that AutoCAD 2012 for Mac Service Pack 1 is ready now for download from Autodesk Service and Support site.

According to information from README file:

“This update resolves compatibility issues that have been reported while using the software on the latest versions of Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8) and Mac OS X Lion. It also resolves problems reported by the Customer Error Reporting (CER) utility and other general problems identified after AutoCAD 2012 for Mac was made available.

Problems Reported with the Customer Error Reporting Utility
As a result of detailed information from customers who used the Customer Error Reporting (CER) utility, a number of problems were identified and fixed. Updates have been made to the following features:

■ Hatch
■ Plot
■ Viewports
General Updates
General changes and improvements have been made to the following features:

Blocks
■    The program is no longer unstable after inserting a block with attributes using AutoLISP.

      Strange, in my case I haven’t such issue. DRAWORDER works as expected. Please, check DRAWORDERCTL system variable in your current drawing – it should be 3. For more info look here.

  2. You should take part in a contest for probably the greatest blogs on the web. I will suggest this web site!

  3. I’ve downloaded the service pack, but I can’t seem to get it to install. The install dialog just freezes before I can select a volume. Any help?
