SST_0910 – What’s New in Vectorworks 2010

I’ve been spending the last couple of months updating my Vectorworks manuals for 2010. I have several clients asking if they should upgrade to the new version of Vectorworks. If you are working on Vectorworks 12.5, then yes, upgrade right now. There are so many advances in Vectorworks since you last bought Vectorworks.

If you are using Vectorworks 2008 or 2009, then look at these notes. You might find that there are enough reasons to upgrade.
