HighDesign 2015 Is Here!

Post by Andrew » Tue Feb 10, 2015 12:35 pm

Hello!

Today we are proud to announce that HighDesign 2015 is now available!
We've been very busy working on this version for a while, and with 80 big, new features, a slick new interface, support for retina displays, a new website, and lots, lots of enhancements HighDesign 2015 is our most significant release ever!
HighDesign 2015 runs on OS X 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 and 10.8.

The New Interface
We devoted a great deal of attention to the user interface in order to maximize the focus on your content, the project, and let the software adjust to your workflow and not the other way around.
The Inspector window, the new Input and Side bars, the Radial menu, and themes are just some of the new features in HighDesign 2015.

Powerful New Tools
New drawing tools and features include Polyline, a redesigned, powerful Bézier Path tool, Splines, Ordinate Dimensions, Smart Annotations, vector patterns and hatches with ability to open islands, color gradients and fills for all closed shapes, styled texts, Smart Snap Alignments, and much more.

Professional Project Control
HighDesign Professional now provides templates to easily comply with international and company CAD standards.
Walls and columns are now even more BIM-like with new parameters and information. Doors and windows automatically adjust their level of detail to the current drawing scale.
Sheets with own units now allow a single document to include multiple drawings with different units and scale.

10.8 because that is the system we tested, but the software should run on 10.7.5 as well. Only we cannot officially support it.

Hi Alex, the price of upgrades from 1.8.7 depends on the date of the old license:
  • Users who purchased on and after January 1, 2014, can upgrade for free.
  • Users with licenses older than January 1, 2014 can upgrade at 50% the full prices, which is $149.00 for HighDesign Standard, and $249.00 for HighDesign Pro.
  • We added a third upgrade option to upgrade from 1.8.7 Standard to 2015 Pro at $349.00
