- Apex IV version 3 now has multi-level
Undo for the most serious mistakes like deleting an Area or some
other portion of a sketch.
- Auto-Save now saves after every event,
such as drawing a line or adding a symbol or text. You can also
save your sketch at anytime even when an area is still open.
- Now when you move an Area, everything
contained within the Area will automatically move as well. No

- While drawing an area, you can now
define and begin drawing another area even though the first one
is still open. For example, when you are drawing GLA1 and come
to the front porch, you can now draw the porch at that point
