With the release of Vectorworks 2013 software, we recommend that users of Vectorworks Cloud Services update their Vectorworks Cloud Services desktop app. Please go to the  Vectorworks Knowledgebase article for the specific links for Windows and Mac operating systems. We also recommend that users update their Vectorworks Cloud Services Nomad app to get the benefits of its latest version. Simply check your portable device for updates.

As always, this month we'd like to give you a few tech tips--and these ones will focus on a few of the exciting new features in Vectorworks 2013.

This first tech tip will show the uses and capabilities of the new Auto Hybrid object in Vectorworks software.
