Re: Parallels/Cutting tool

Good morning Eric! Most of the tools with .. after them require a double-click to bring up their preferences panel, which works well and seems logical. And a quick double, triple or quadruple keystroke moves you horizontally along the related tools, both those with .. and those without. All good :mr...

Re: Parallels/Cutting tool

Hi Mike The problem only happens if Static parallels is selected. If you select Dynamic parallels then the 'M' keystrokes work OK: M = Parallels MM = Cutting tool MMM = Scissors MMMM = Rotation tool There is a similar problem with Cut and extend: U = Cut and extend UU = Cut and extend with chamfer U...

Re: Odd library effect

Hi Eric

Yes - exactly so :D – but you would be able to put in your own preferred short (say max 10 characters) names?

Cheers -- George

Re: Odd library effect

All good so far! And Scripts also seem to be working just fine. You can make really quite complicated dashed lines :mrgreen: I have wondered if it would be useful to be able optionally attach names to the dashed lines. For example I have four 'standard' lines that I use all the time, which I would c...

Re: Odd library effect

Hi Eric Oh - right - that makes sense of it. I probably don't have groups in most of my other library drawings, or at least not a lot of nested groups. And I tend to use the hex nuts library element quite a lot. And I use the measurement tool for nearly all my dimensioning, so there are often lots o...

Re: Odd library effect

Hi Eric

Thanks for the quick reply

I'll try as you say and re-save it. But it really needs re-drawing anyway as it could be a lot better drawn.

I've sent it to you anyway!

Cheers -- George

Odd library effect

Hi Eric There is one set of drawings in my library that has a very odd effect. It's a fairly old drawing of hex. nuts. When I put it into a drawing some of the parts of the nuts become grouped with dimensions drawn with the Measuring tool or sometimes polygons! See https://whisstock.com/odd_library....

Re: New problem with 5.02

And to make drawing "outside of the page" with the current zoom rules, you can as I mentioned, set the Drawing size width to *2. Or any other multiple – doesn't have to be an even number – I work with width set to *1.25 so that the tools are outside my 'real' page (you can set the height t...

Re: New problem with 5.02

Or, I can use the zoom tool, rather than the keyboard shortcuts. Drawing in the "paper zone" will be inconvenient, having the vertical and horizontal lines through my work (until resizing.) I just have to reprogram my brain to use the Z. Hey Mike – you can toggle the page outline on and o...
