Portland, OR, USA, October 9, 2017 — The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC) today announced the release of IntelliCAD 8.4a.

IntelliCAD 8.4a is a maintenance release for version 8.4 that was previously issued on July 14, 2017.

A key addition to IntelliCAD is the support of version 2018 .dwg files. IntelliCAD works natively with .dwg files, with no conversion required, but initial support of the latest .dwg file version 2018 does require conversion in IntelliCAD 8.4a. Native support is expected soon. 

Other highlights include significant improvements to editing in-place blocks and external references, ability to select entities on locked layers, editing multiline text, additions to Russian and French translations, and new Dutch, simplified Chinese and Serbian localizations.

Many improvements included in IntelliCAD 8.4a were contributed by ITC member developers and companies who collaborate with the ITC on an ongoing basis.

David Lorenzo, ITC President, stated, “IntelliCAD 8.4a is our fourth release in the last ten months to keep up with members who continue to collaborate with new fixes, features and translations.”

IntelliCAD 8.4a is supported on Microsoft® Windows® 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista®, including 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

Interested IntelliCAD users can contact ITC members to receive details about availability of IntelliCAD software.
