In OCAD, you can create objects with pair of coordinates. Copy coordinates e.g. from Google Maps to clipboard. When you press Paste in the OCAD window (Ctrl + V or in the Menu Object> Paste), a dialogue window appears.
Now you have three options: You can move the view to this coordinates, create point objects at the coordinates or create line or area objects (only available if more than one pair of coordinates exists).
To use this function properly, a coordinate system has to be defined and the pasted coordinates need to fit to this coordinate system.
OCAD 2019 is just a new name to underline that you are using a software that is constantly evolving and which contains new features and standards. It’s not a new version. If you are on a subscription model, you will automatically receive OCAD 2019 with the latest Service Update and do not need to purchase any new licenses.
For technical reasons, OCAD installation folders, etc., will continue to be marked as OCAD 2018. However, the general strategy is to omit the year in the name of each OCAD edition in the future.
There is a Wiki page, which summarises Tipps and Tricks with Keyboard and Mouse to optimize your drawing and editing skills in OCAD. It’s really worth to have a look there! For each function there is a link for an animation and further information.
