One of the first changes you might notice when you launch AutoCAD 2016 is the Start tab. It was previously called New Tab. The NEWTABMODE system variable has been renamed to STARTMODE. When set to 0 the Start tab is not displayed. When displayed, the Start tab remains persistent as you create and open additional drawings.
A new deployment option enables you to control whether the Start tab is displayed for install deployments.
You can press Ctrl+Home or use the new GOTOSTART command to switch focus from the current drawing to the Start tab. The new CLOSEALLOTHER command offers command line access to close all the open drawings except the one in focus.
The Learning Tips on the Learn page is updated every 24 hours. You can use the arrows to cycle through multiple tips one at a time and the tips can now contain inline images.
