Can I get a different product than I have now?
You do not need to purchase the same product as the perpetual trade-in license. For example, you can trade in an old, eligible perpetual license of AutoCAD and subscribe to a collection at the promotional price (Exception : Autodesk LT Family product licenses are eligible to be traded in for subscriptions with single- or multi-user access to all eligible individual products except industry collections).
What does “Switch-back option” mean?
We’re confident that you will be satisfied with your subscription, but if for any reason that is not the case, you are eligible to switch back to your perpetual license within the 30-day returns period or at the end of either the 3-year term, or the end of the second year of an annual term (1 year plus 1 year renewal). If the subscription is not returned within the 30-day period, then the serial number of the legacy license is no longer eligible to be used for any type of future promotion, regardless of the customer switching back or not.
Note that customers with 2017 or 2018 versions are only eligible to switch back to a 2016 version. Customers with versions 1998-2015 who choose to switch back will do so to the same version and product associated with the traded in serial number.
Customers are responsible for retaining media kids, download and/or activation details and other items necessary for the operation of the legacy license.

To provide more value to subscribers and to simplify the AutoCAD product line – AutoCAD subscription will now include access to all AutoCAD vertical product functionality and libraries as specialized toolsets. More information is available at www.autodesk.com.au/products/autocad/overview.
Do I have to be connected to the internet to use my software?
No. After initial activation, your software will work offline for 30 days. At that point, you will need to reconnect. Don't worry, we'll remind you 7 days prior.
Will all of my work automatically go into the cloud?
Desktop applications and all associated user data are stored on your local machine. When you use cloud service applications, you can choose to either store data in the cloud or on your local machine. You retain all of your local data even if you decide to end your subscription.
Will I have updates whether I want to or not?
