DRAWINGS

As usual, there are a number of performance and quality improvements to Drawings. In this update, view quality has been improved and moving dimensions is now much easier. However, the most significant update is to the Drawing Sheets flyout, which now lists every view on every sheet.

VERSIONED DRAWING REFERENCE HIGHLIGHTING

When inspecting a version of a drawing, hovering your mouse over a dimension will now highlight the geometry that dimension is referencing. This will help you understand the drawing better.

QUICK ACCESS TO RECENTLY OPENED DOCUMENTS

When the “My Onshape” filter is active on the Documents page, you can now access your most recently opened Documents from the Quick Access area of the Documents list, without having to activate the Recently Opened filter.
