The Autodesk AutoCAD 2016 version features various improvements touching upon user interface, tools and productivity.
The improvements of the interface
File tabs improvement – the New Tab has been renamed to Start. It remains persistent when you open and work on new drawings. Thus you will be able to start a new drawing any time while you are working on a current drawing.
Layouts option has also been improved. Now the option uses drag and drop mode to move and copy layouts. The layouts are moved precisely to a position you choose.
The layouts tab is not movable as well. A right click opens a drop down menu and allows to dock the tab to any place you need above or under the tool panel.

Moreover the software remembers the last used cloud method and applies it the next time you use revision clouds if another method is not chosen. Revision clouds have become more intuitive, flexible and easy.
Move/copy improvements – moving and copying numerous objects in 2D or 3D design was really challenging, but not the software is able to process the command in a faster and more precise way. The objects are moved with no lags and slow-downs of the performance. The overall process of moving and copying the objects have become smoother and easier.
