AutoCAD® 2020 Support
including full support for Autodesk® AutoCAD® 2020 products, including 64-bit English versions of AutoCAD® 2020, AutoCAD Map 3D™ 2020, and AutoCAD Civil3D™ 2020;
Smart Point Blocks
allow users to draw point nodes and labels as a single block, with automatic leaders and editing functions for label placement;
are created from Polylines, LWPolylines, and 3DPolylines which are connected by survey points, and will be automatically updated when points move. A new “CAD Polylines Dialog” has been created to review polyline details. LandXML Export and Google Earth (.kml) export have both been upgraded to export smart polylines;
have been updated to include Gons/Gradians, and may be used for all input/output throughout the program;
have been added to allow users to easily download background imagery as a raster image. The area of interest may be specified by project location or other input, and Resolution, coverage area, and image type may be specified on import;
allows users to import various types of GIS data into their drawing. Filters have been added to control data limits, remap attributes, and import the file as 3-dimensional objects;
data from Trimble® and Spectra Precision® may be imported as traverse files, including point coordinates, GNSS coordinates, and total station measurements;
3D Point Labels
allow users to draw point labels at the elevation of their respective nodes, rather than at zero. This is very useful for those who prefer to work in 3D;
Drawing Comparison Tools
from AutoCAD® have been made to work properly with MicroSurvey database objects, and allow a user to compare two similar drawings to determine their differences;
Upgraded CSMap Library
includes over 125 new coordinate systems for Africa, Asia, Europe, Australasia, and the USA

AutoCAD® 2017 Support
MicroSurvey inCAD 2017 supports Autodesk® AutoCAD® 2017 products, including 32-bit and 64-bit English versions of AutoCAD 2017, AutoCAD Civil 3D™ 2017, and AutoCAD Map 3D™ 2017.
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.
Cloud Storage Support
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.
