The popular DGN hotfix has now had a version released that works with the 2012 products. This Hotfix cleans up non-essential data from DWG files that have become bloated while copying and pasting from DWGs containing DGN linetypes. It will also prevent future occurrences of the file bloat issue from occurring.
Autodesk just released three service packs for the Mac versions of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. In addition to resolving issues reported by the Customer Error Reporting (CER) utility and other general problems identified since the previous versions were made available, these service packs add support for OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion).
New Apple guidelines require that software packages installed on OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) meet certain security standards. These restrictions mean that you may be unable to do a fresh install or re-install of your existing AutoCAD for Mac products on OS X 10.8. In that case, depending on your product, you should either download the full version of AutoCAD 2012 for Mac or download the trial Mac versions of AutoCAD 2013 or AutoCAD LT 2013. These downloads have been updated to include the latest service packs and conform with new Apple security requirements.
Note: The service pack for AutoCAD LT 2013 is not for the AutoCAD LT 2013 purchased from the Mac App Store. That version will receive the new updates directly from the Mac App Store when it becomes available.
Almost three weeks ago Autodesk released Service Pack 1 for AutoCAD 2013 and AutoCAD LT 2013. Within a couple days of its release the service packs were removed from autodesk.com while the AutoCAD team worked on resolving a newly-discovered fatal crashing error.
The service packs have been re-released (now as Service Pack 1.1) and the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of new update can be found at the following links:
This service pack is only for AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT (with or without SP1) and cannot be applied to vertical products that are based on AutoCAD 2013. If you managed to download and apply SP1 before it was removed, you can just apply SP1.1 on top of it. Uninstall of SP1 is not necessary or required.
Before installing Service Pack 1, I strongly recommend you review the associated readme file for installation instructions and details about the primary issues that are resolved by the service pack.
On Monday, Autodesk released the new service pack for AutoCAD 2012 and AutoCAD LT 2012. Many of you have since requested more information about what issues were actually addressed by the service pack as these details were not included in the SP2 readme file. You have been heard and the readme files have been updated to include more information about what issues are fixed by the service pack.
