The "AutoCAD Wish List"

Thanks to Mike Perry of AUGI who provided most the following very helpful information.

There are "Forums" on the site (as well as many other resources) that are that site's version of discussion groups, one of which is the "Wish List" for AutoCAD. Each year AUGI presents the Top Ten Wish List items to Autodesk at AU (Autodesk University)

The path to get there: AUGI Forums > General Design > AutoCAD > AutoCAD Community > AutoCAD Wish List or directly:

The "AutoCAD Wish List" forum is on the AUGI (Autodesk User Group International) web site. If you are not already a member of AUGI please use the below link to complete the membership form (AUGI membership is totally free) -

Posting in the AUGI "AutoCAD Wish List" forum:

* Search the Wish List for a similar wish. If you find one, please add your comments / ideas / thoughts to that thread, and rate the thread. Please do not start a new thread if a similar wish already exists (One thread per wish).

* If a search does not return a similar wish please post your wish in a new thread. Please create a new thread for each wish; this will allow each wish to be rated / voted_on separately (One wish per thread).

* Rate your wish, and the other wishes in the forum based on how good you feel they are.
