UpFront.eZine - What's Inside? AutoCAD for Macintosh :

The What's Inside? AutoCAD for Macintosh eBook is part of the upFront.eZine series of popular eBooks for CAD users, and provides the only in-depth review of AutoCAD 2011 for Mac. Its 138 pages of content is more comprehensive than Autodesk's own marketing documents.

Learn what's special about the Mac version, and how it is different from the Windows version. Tour the user interface, learn about new tool sets, fiberless technology, system variables, commands new to AutoCAD for Mac, how to customize and program the software, and much more. Also, get a Windows OS X cross-reference dictionary.

As with all upFront.eZine eBooks, ll illustrations are in full-color, and the eBook is formatted for printing on standard 8.5x11 in paper, which margins designed for three-hole punching.
