    Autodesk has released the first update for AutoCAD 2021.  Find official documentation here.  Here are some highlights:

    • Blocks palette:
        • There is a new Favorites tab.
        • Block can be copied from other tabs to the new Favorites tab.
        • Blocks synchronized in the cloud can become accessible across multiple devices.
        • You can better manage your synchronization settings in the Blocks palette now.
        • Insert a DWG into the current file without it being added to the Libraries tab.
        • New variable and setting in Options: BLOCKSYNCFOLDER – Sets the path where the recent and favorite blocks are stored.
    • In the AutoCAD web app, click Open in Desktop to open the drawing in AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT desktop.  A plug-in must be installed.
