Autodesk Design Review 2008 (ADR) introduces many new features and you certainly can’t complain about the price, free!
However new is always not always better. ADR 2007 exposed the format tools for mark-ups on a “Format and Animation” Toolbar. This was great, especially for use with a Tablet PC where you could easily pick the various tools with a pen as you created mark-ups.
Sadly ADR 2008 has hidden these tools in a fly-out from the “Change Text“ button. It remembers the last fly-out tool you use, within the current session, but there is no way to make it “stick” open or get these tools on a separate Toolbar. Given ADR exists to allow review I don’t think hiding mark-up format tools is an improvement .
Maybe something to test before you update from 2007, especially if using ADR on a Tablet PC.
