AutoCAD 2023 – New Features

AutoCAD 2023 – New Features

AutoCAD 2023 has just been released and comes with a suite of new features and enhancements to improve your existing workflows and overall productivity when using AutoCAD. 2023 marks the transition to Autodesk’s new design standards so users will enjoy a fresh and modernized appearance.

New Features

Markup Import and Markup Assist

Import feedback and incorporate changes to your drawings automatically when collaborating with teammates and reviewers, without additional drawing steps.

Use Markup Import to place a marked-up version of your drawing on top of the original file to make it easier to view and incorporate changes to your drawing. For example, if you have a PDF version of your drawing that has text and revision notes added, use Markup Import to overlay the revised drawing on top of the original. Or, if you have a printed version of your drawing that contains hand-written revision notes, you can take a photograph of the printed version and then import it as a JPG or PNG.


LISP API for AutoCAD Web

The AutoCAD LISP API to automate steps in your workflow is now available in the AutoCAD web app, exclusive to AutoCAD Subscribers (not available in LT packages). LISP (or AutoLISP) scripts were only available in the desktop version until now.

My Insights

My Insights is a frictionless guide to provide valuable tips and new features to help you work faster at the right time and in the right context. Insights will provide you information about your most used tools and recommend new workflows on training to get the best out of the tools available to you in AutoCAD.


AutoCAD generates macro insights based on your unique command usage. Use the Command Macros palette to view, try, and save suggested command macros. Macros are a series of command inputs run at once saving the user from having to re-do repetitive tasks/commands.




Add design change notes and markups without altering your existing drawing from AutoCAD desktop in addition to the web and mobile apps.


Count automates the counting of blocks or objects within a selected area or throughout your entire drawing with a menu to identify errors and navigate through your counted objects.

Sheet Set Manager

The Sheet Set Manager now enables you to open sheet sets quicker than ever before. Using the Autodesk cloud platform, sending and opening sheet sets to and from teammates is quicker and safer.

Graphic Performance Improvements

AutoCAD 2023 has updated graphics so you can render 3D objects up to 10 times faster than before with shaded, shaded with edges, and wireframe visual styles.


Send controlled copies of your drawings to your team and colleagues, establishing access for those who need only to view and those who need to edit. Save time sharing your drawings with AutoCAD.

Push to Autodesk Docs

Improve productivity and reduce steps by publishing your CAD drawing sheets as PDFs from AutoCAD to Autodesk Docs. Plus, you can access your DWG files in Autodesk Docs anywhere with the AutoCAD web app.

Floating Windows

View and edit two drawings at the same time in fully functional windows side by side, or on multiple monitors. No need to open another instance of AutoCAD.

Redesigned Start Tab

The new AutoCAD start tab allows you to easily access files and other helpful content all in one place.

MLEADER Enhancements

The MLEADER command now has an option to select an existing MTEXT object to use for the new leader.

Drawing and Layout Tabs

Changes to the drawing and layout tabs make it easier to tell which drawing and layout is active. Changes also make it easier to see which drawing is active on the drawing tab overflow menu.

Improvements include the following:

  • Modern look for drawing and layout tabs
  • The active tab is highlighted
  • The active drawing is checked on the drawing overflow menu
