-  NEW Drawing Constraints (Parametric Drawing) for Windows                 
   Increases drawing precision by applying dimensional constraints to ensure
   2D designs meet exact proportion, angle and size requirements by forcing 
   a geometric shape to perform in a specified way.

   Maintains the attribute values while exploding blocks to editable shapes 
   with the ExplodeBlockX, the DiscardDuplicates tool simplifies geometry,  
   and the interactive trim path precisely trims curves and corners on      
   screen.                                                                  
                                                                            
-  NEW Pop-Up Dimension Palette                                             
   Displays dimension text formatting and property settings on screen for   
   quick editing and easier control of frequently-used settings.            
                                                                            
-  ENHANCED In-Place Text and Table Editing                                 
   Creates or modifies existing text with the ability to quickly stack text 
   and paste formatted text from Microsoft Word within a project. Inserts,  
   deletes, merges or resizes cells, rows and columns within existing tables
   to quickly include important text or instructions into any drawing.
