PowerCADD has been updated for full compatibility for Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10.x) and El Capitan (10.11.x). In addition, third party external plug-ins, including WildTOOLs, have also been updated.
This is much more than an simple incremental update. PowerCADD 9.1.4 is a complete rework of PowerCADD code from the ground up, yielding significant performance increases and setting the groundwork for faster and easier changes going forward for PowerCADD 10 and beyond. To paraphrase from what Apple so eloquently said with the release of iPhone 6s:
The only thing that's changed is everything -- inside. However, PowerCADD 9.1.4 still looks and feels like the product we've used for decades: elegantly simple and intuitive.

Overall the simple fact PowerCADD 9.1.4 is fully compliant with the latest versions of Apple's Yosemite and El Capitan operating systems will be a big deal for multi-seat installations. You can now plan and move forward to get everyone on a common operating system.
