Could use more functionality but it does work well
There are a couple of things that I really need in my daily usage of this app on my iPad Pro. Being able to easily draw shapes with set dimensions entered via text entry (I thought that I used to be able to do this), and the ability to draw splines. I have to switch back to my Mac in order to accomplish these two tasks and it seems like they should be easy to implement on the iPad. Having those two abilities would greatly increase my productivity.
Another caveat is that I haven’t been able to select any objects recently with the Apple Pencil 2 - I have to select the object with my finger and then I can adjust the nodes/handles with the pencil from there.
I still enjoy the program, I just find myself thinking that it could be a lot more useful with a few additions or tweaks.
Developer Response ,
We are glad to inform you that our latest iOS release (version 4.4.34) includes keypad, which would allow accurate input. While drawing a line or a shape, tap on a value box to access the tool.
Be aware that this is not a final version of the feature, as we are working on improving it. Please help us make our app better and share your thoughts.
Should have made it like desktop version. Why change it?
Whoever designed this app needs to understand that AutoCAD users weren’t born in 2000. This app looks very elementary and isn’t the interface most users see on desktop. Why redesign it when experienced users already have had a palette from many years ago. It should have been more seamless transition from desktop to mobile. One of the key features that I am at a loss for is:
Ability to type dimensions for line lengths and the use of standard key commands. Point and click is such a waste of time. For any experienced use of Autocad, typing commands from memory is faster than drawing lines. Once it compounds, one will know how much longer it takes to make a drawing.
Also, I subscribed, but my Apple Pencil doesn’t even work based on the tutorials about freehand and editing dimensions. None of that is on the paid version. And zero support. Unfortunate that it’s like any other generic drawing tool and not like the original desktop version, which one would think that is where you would would actually begin the design with and not start from scratch.
I will try it out, but it is so slow to even just draw a floor plan. I can do it faster on a desktop version. Time is money for AutoCAD users and app developers don’t really think that this isn’t just a hobby app, it’s a working man’s app to make money and every second counts when drawing in AutoCAD because it is used by professionals, not hobbyists.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback.
We wanted to notify you that in the new version of the app, you need to select a tool, before starting drawing with Apple Pencil.
We are currently working on improving Apple Pencil support within the app. We would appreciate it if you could let us know what are the functions that you are looking for when working with Apple Pencil? What function do you need the most?

From one who knows no AutoCAD
I bought an IPad Pro and decided I would purchase AutoCAD mobile. Although I am a licensed civil engineer (experienced, i.e. old), I have always had someone to do CAD for me. After the pandemic, I am staying home, so I have started to see if I can do some stuff on my own. I started out in the wrong place. Knowing little AutoCAD other than knowing about layers and some commands, I bought this product. It is worthless. They saved on making a HELP section (so easy to do); you’re on your own. Searching the internet, I see this is typical for AutoCAD: “we know there are issues with (BLANK) but we are working on it”. I decidedly feel ripped-off. No way to use this program. All I want is to search for a location and maybe point to the locations, but I can’t do it. I am sure it is very easy if there were a reference that I could READ. Now I have to make sure that my annual subscription cannot be renewed (cancellations for internet products being so difficult). Count me as ZERO STARS.
