    what about AutoCAD® WS for linux?

  • Seth Cohen

    I was wondering, how long will it be before support for attributes is added? I would love to have a way for the user to enter an “attribute mode”, touch objects, and AutoCAD WS will list any block attributes.

    Thank you in advance.

      It’s something we are considering for a future release. Thanks Seth.

  • Keith Bolton

    When will AutoCAD WS for Android be released? If ever?

    Not everyone goes the iphone/ipad route. In fact I’ve heard there may be more Android smartphones than iphones these days.

    • Daniel

      Keith, we are sensitive to the fact that there is considerable demand for an Android version. As soon as we have news on that front we will let you know.

  • Keith Bolton

    Great, look forward to it, thanks.

    No joy with 1.2. On my 1G iPod touch (iOS 3.1.3; iOS ≥ 3.0 supposedly supported), I get the app’s splash screen but nothing else – it shuts down. Resetting iPod doesn’t help. Back to 1.1.

    • Jack Martin

      Now even 1.1 won’t load.

    something i’d love to see in autocad WS “Mobile” is the possibility to take a picture and link it with a specific area of the drawing!! ( think of some kind of “Geotagging” ) with that i could store, sort and report lots of pictures for the “as built” drawings of a building and as visual backup of the “billable changes” made during construction!!! it would be so helpful!!
