This latest version adds one or two new features including 32 bit support (Autosketch 9 was a 16 bit package) and AutoCAD support with the ability to both open and save in DXF or DWG format.
My only complaints are threefold:-
1. When you open an AutoCAD file it converts to an SKF file format in the filename so SKF is still the hard programmed default format rather than a user chosen one.
2. If you save an SKF file, your layout orientation and scale as well as your printer orientation and scales are saved. When saving in AutoCAD format you lose the printer settings which to me is a major pain the backside! Who wants to have to set the printer up every time you want to print a saved drawing? Come on Autodesk, wake up!
3. The price has more than doubled from version 9 which is not really excusable in my opinion considering the issues with the autocad format printer problem.
Those three issues aside, Autosketch 10 is a very capable package (new users must be prepared to take the time to learn how to use it) more than sufficient for architectural, mechanical and electrical 2D drawings. If this is all you need you really don't need to be spending 3-4 times as much money on packages packed with features you just don't use. Autosketch will do very nicely.
UPDATE: Since writing this review I have discovered that you can get around the loss of orientation on the printer page with AutoCAD drawings by setting your printers default to Landscape mode. Of course, if you need it set to Portrait for some other app this won't help you and I stand by my point that a saved DWG or DXF should retain the printer settings like the SKF drawings do.
