BricsCAD V23 What’s New

The Tips Panel has had a revamp for BricsCAD V23. This will help both new and existing users to get started faster and easier in a familiar, intuitive workspace.

Maybe you’re thinking “but that’s only for new users” or “I’m a pro, I know the tips and tricks”, well, keep on reading and see how the new Tips Panel is more helpful than ever!

What is the Tips Panel?

The Tips panel is located to the left of BricsCAD and is switched on, in all workspaces, when you first start BricsCAD. It gives you hints and tips based on the current workspace and the command in-use.

What’s new for V23?

The Tips panel has been extended from 64 page to a massive 205. It has also become more interactive with more detailed information, and there are new, workspace-specific tips for Paper Space, the Mechanical workspace. There is also the all-new Civil workspace.

Why did we make the changes?

When we watched experienced CAD users using BricsCAD for the first time, we noticed they liked the old Tips Panel and tried to explore the panel. However, here the information was limited, and it lacked full interactivity.

I’m an advance CAD user, why do I need the Tips Panel?

There are several sections in the Tips Panel in the Drafting workspace created specifically for experienced users: New for V23 and Power Users. Under these sections, you’ll find hints and tips to help you get the most from BricsCAD V23.

In other workspaces, you’ll notice a yellow ‘New for V23’ next to new commands on the homepage of the Tips Panel. This helps users get started with BricsCAD V23’s new features straight away.
