Regular and free updates are included in the OCAD subscription model. The Service Update corrects known bugs and adds the latest cartography tools and enhancements to your OCAD.

Therefore, we recommend using OCAD software always with the most recent Service Update to benefit from the quality improvements.
Please download the current Service Update from the Help -> Download Update function in the OCAD program.

The content of the Service Update is listed in the Release notes.

Which OCAD version do I have?

You can find out your exact Software Version under Help -> About OCAD.
Also, the OCAD 12 and 2019 Updater can be used as a general overview and update tool for OCAD installations.

OCAD Updater

OCAD checks for the newest Service Update online, everytime when it is started. If there's a new Service Update available, the OCAD Updater dialog appears.
