softelec has released a new Version 10 of its VPHybridCAD VPstudio software for editing and converting scanned technical and engineering drawings. Windows based VPHybridCAD V10 supports all AutoCAD versions from 2004 to 2010 and complies with the new AutoCAD 2010 "ribbon style" user interface. With a collection of new and re-designed functions and features for operation inside AutoCAD and in stand-alone mode VPHybridCAD V10 sets the highest standards for professional processing and automatic conversion of scanned technical documents with built-in OCR capabilities.
For all VPHybridCAD products PDF file import has been largely expanded. While most variations of PDF files with embedded raster images are supported, even PDF data containing vector elements can now be loaded and handled inside the VP software.
In addition to a variety of internal refinements for text editing, element combination and line style treatment the "symbol search" module has been completely re-designed. It now provides a simplified setup to automatically detect and replace symbols blocks in raster or hybrid drawings.
While complying with AutoCAD's 2010 "ribbon style" interface VPHybridCAD V10 users can now also make use of the CUI file support in former AutoCAD versions, allowing for seamless toolbar handling inside AutoCAD. Softelec offers other wide format scanning product solutions for mapping and document indexing.
