What’s New Badges in Inventor!

October 12, 2018 Jennifer MacMillan

If you are anything like me, when a new software release (or update) is released by Autodesk my first stop is always the What’s New documents located in Help. These documents provide a great running list of the current and all past enhancements in one convenient location for me to review. As a content creator, this makes my life much easier in learning about all the great new tools.


But wait!!! There is a new enhancement called Highlight New in Inventor 2019.1 that makes things even easier when trying to figure out what changes have been made. On the Get Started tab > New Features panel when you enable the Highlight New option, orange colored badges are added to the new or updated commands DIRECTLY in the software, as shown below.

What I really like about this is that I am able to easily see where changes are made and then I can refer to Help to read and investigate further. I can even select how far back I want to go. Love it! Thanks Autodesk!
