Revision Clouds

When creating revision clouds, you have the option of drawing them freehand or converting an existing closed polyline. Simply hit ENTER instead of picking a first point, then select your object and hit ENTER again to accept the new cloud. Using the "object" option also allows you to reverse the direction of your cloud, which is useful for creating "holes" in the revision cloud. While AutoCAD 2004 incorporated REVCLOUD as a core command (it used to be an Expres Tool), AutoCAD 2005 brought back the "calligraphy" option, which tapers each arc of the cloud to make it look more "hand-drawn".
