Smart Point Blocks
Points can now be drawn as either a point node and text labels (as in previous versions) or as a point block that combines these elements into one object.
3D Point Labels
A new "3D Point Labels" system toggle lets you draw point labels either in 2D at z=0 (default, as previous) or at each point node's 3D elevation. The previous "2D Draw Mode" system toggle was renamed to "2D Point Nodes" to clarify the difference between these two options.
Attach Imagery (Bing Maps)
Instantly download and attach imagery from Bing® Maps as a raster image file. Specify the area of interest by Point ID, Current View, Lat/Long, or Street Address. Specify the image type (Aerial, Road or Hybrid), coverage area, and resolution. Align the imagery to either georeferenced or local point coordinates.
Import Esri Shapefile data into your drawing, with optional positional and/or attribute filters to control and limit exactly which features to import from often very large data sets.
Latest Autodesk® engine — AutoCAD® OEM 2018
MicroSurvey embeddedCAD is powered by Autodesk Technology™. Autodesk AutoCAD OEM 2018 engine provides maximum compatibility with AutoCAD software and DWG™ files.
A Ribbon interface has been provided for all MicroSurvey commands, including new high-resolution icons.
Specify an angular unit for each drawing, including Degrees-Minutes-Seconds (as in previous versions), Decimal Degrees, or Gons/Gradians. The specified angular unit setting will be used for all input/output throughout the program.

Latest Autodesk® engine — AutoCAD® OEM 2017 SP1
MicroSurvey embeddedCAD is powered by Autodesk Technology™. Autodesk AutoCAD OEM 2017 engine provides maximum compatibility with AutoCAD software and DWG™ files. Includes Autodesk AutoCAD OEM 2017 Service Pack 1.
Independent Point Labels
The Independent Point Numbers (IPN), Descriptions (IPD), and Elevations (IPE) label system has been enhanced for fast and smooth display.
Cloud Storage Support
Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, and other cloud storage and synchronization services are now supported. Open and save your drawings directly in your favourite third-party cloud-synchronized folder, just the same as any other local folder. A subscription to a third-party service(s) is required, it is not provided by or through MicroSurvey in any way.
AutoMAP Library: Group Codes
Two new grouping options have been added, which can dramatically simplify your AutoMAP Library and make initial configuration much faster and easier. Use the new Group Codes option to use a single AutoMAP Library entry for multiple, related point descriptions. For example, use a ROADING group code for all all your roading-related field codes like CL,EP,EG,EA, etc. Use the new Group Range option to use a single AutoMAP Library entry for all points in a specified range. For example use a ROADING group code for all points in the 2000..2999 range, etc, regardless of their actual field code.
Symbol Librarian: File Operations
Add a new symbol directly into the selected folder in the symbol library. Import an existing drawing file into the selected folder in the symbol library. Edit the selected symbol in the symbol library. Delete the selected symbol from the symbol library. Duplicate the selected symbol in the symbol library.

Leica DBX Import
Import Leica Codelists, and add its contents to your AutoMAP library.
AutoMAP Plotted Descriptions
A new "Use Plotted Description" option has been added to the Export ASCII commands which will write out the AutoMAP Plotted Descriptions in place of the Descriptions.
AutoMAP Substitution Codes
Access field-coded parameters directly from your point descriptions and use them to control the Layer, Symbol, and other fields. (Previously available only in the Plotted Description field.)
COGO Bearing Rotation
A "Rotated Bearing/Azimuth" field has been added onto the CAD Lines and CAD Curves dialogs, to show both the original and rotated bearing/azimuth per the specified COGO Bearing Rotation angle. And, a "Rotated Chord Bearing/Azimuth" field has been added onto the CAD Lines and CAD Curves dialogs, to to show both the original and rotated chord bearing per the specified COGO Bearing Rotation angle.
Clusters, Draw Error Vectors
Draw the error vectors of each cluster as polar or orthogonal lines, with an exaggeration factor and customizable color and layer properties depending on the pass/fail condition.
Use point IDs to specify which lines, curves, and ties you want to added to Line Table, Curve Table or Multi-Tie Table.
Line Labeling, Bearing Defaults
A new option has been added into the Bearing Labeling Defaults to specify the number of spaces between the Degrees, Minutes, and Seconds values.
