This is mainly made for Windows 8 and hence if you are using the program on the operating system of Windows 8 on your computer, then you can easily use the feature of touch screen.
The application program AutoCAD 2014 also has got a new tool called the Secure that helps you to keep your system secure from various malicious applications. Just go to the Options tab and switch on this tool and get the Trusted Search Paths. Now whenever any file gets loaded from outside the trusted paths, a warning will be displayed on the screen, making you aware of the possible infiltration.
Apart from the major features that have been added in the program AutoCAD 2014, there are many other small changes that have been made in the existing application. Now you can use arcs in any direction using the CTRL keys. Also, now when you open a new sheet, you sheet will be saved under the creation date of the sheet in place of the .DWT file. You can now also convert current drawings to different plot styles and insert dialog boxes and other blocks. The most important thing that has been added to the command line is the undo option.
The best operating system to use on in case of AutoCAD 2014 is Windows 8 due to its touchscreen feature. But the program application is also compatible to other two versions also that is Windows 7 and Windows XP.
