Autodesk ought to listen to its disgruntled users

  • Comment

Your comments on Autodesk (AJ 22.1.04) are spot on: this upgrading is an absolute rip-off.

AutoCAD 2004 isn't even that much better than 2000. Apart from graded hatch and multiple undos, it seems a waste of time.

Toolbars changed for no apparent reason and icons are not as clear as they were before. Of course, people with AutoCAD 2000 can't open 2004 drgs and everything has to be converted back to 2000 before sending dwg files by email or disc.

I have mentioned these points to our CAD consultants but they make money out of selling upgrades. Let's hope Autodesk reads your article and takes some notice.

I am planning to contact Autodesk myself and tell them what I think. If thousands of AutoCAD users did the same, they would have to take notice.

Wouldn't they?
