The 360 Panorama option within Photo Lab. Normal renderings are a great way to show off a designed space, but, with 360 Panorama renderings, I'm able to showcase an entire room without doing multiple renderings to achieve the views that I want.

Feature snapping is a bit of magic that allows users to position objects in the drawing relative to another object's graphics. This is great, as sometimes, you'd have snappers that have not been programmed to interact with each other. Feature snapping can solve problems like this by positioning the animation object at the start, middle, and end of the other snapper's 2D lines.
