Having used AutoCAD for some 11 years now, I would consider myself to be super quick. So, having installed our new AutoCAD 2006, I was disappointed to find myself working more slowly and being frustrated by the unnecessary changes.

The package now seems to run more slowly, is full of unnecessary visual enhancements which do nothing but irritate your eyes, and also seems to have omitted some of the most useful aspects of the previous release.

We have become familiar with tailoring the package to our needs over the past few releases, so why re-invent the wheel?

I now need to spend time re-learning some fundamental aspects of the program rather than getting on with progressing projects.

If AutoDesk wants to continue to supersede its products and demand the additional fees that this entails then it should at least develop the product so that it genuinely makes life easier for us end-users.
