To most of the CAD users, the UI is the first look of a new program, and the entire experience would be impacted by the acceptance of UIs. GstarCAD8 is the newest product launched by Suzhou Gstarsoft. The UIs were upgraded and easier to switch between 2D Drafting and Classic UI.

Ribbon/Classic Interfaces

GstarCAD8 offers a non-switching user interface that is easier for users to switch between different ribbon/classic interfaces instead of having to restart the program. Users can change views, visual styles, viewports and other settings. The UI also has a familiar Command Line for those who are inclined to use it.

Toolbar Customization

In GstarCAD8, users can invoke the most compatible commands in their preferred way; from menu, ribbon, toolbars, or command line (such as open, save, save as… and print etc.). Additionally, there are more comprehensive options within dialog boxes that make learning the software easier for new users.

Extendable Functional Zone

There are two interfaces in GstarCAD8 – 2D Drafting and Classic. You can switch between the two interfaces anytime with one click. Also, the default functional zone can be customized via tool bar menu according to users’ preference.

External Reference Management

GstarCAD8 adopts many comprehensive options within dialog boxes that make learning the software easier for new users. Such as Drawing Recovery Manager, External Reference Manager. The external reference management integrates raster management and external references to manage the data in/out of the drawings conveniently.

Multiple Viewport

GstarCAD8 improved its multiple viewport. In order to save more work space, every viewport doesn’t show the title bar as it did in previous versions. In addition, one viewport can be subdivided to display more views.
