Re: Clipboard question

I'm a little lost here Ko is kibi-octets right? An octet is 8 bits? A kibi-octet is 1024 octets. a kilo-octet (ko) is 1000 octets A kB is kilobytes – and a byte is generally 8 bits. However a kilobyte can be (loosely) 1024 or 1000 bytes. Really we should be using kibibytes (KiB) for 1024 bits and ki...

Re: Saving to dxf or dwg crash

Hi Eric That seems to have fixed the problem! I wouldn't normally want to convert such a complex drawing (as the one I sent, that had problems) but I was experimenting with converting to DXF and then opening in Inkscape to convert to SVG. Even now that RealCADD saves the drawing as a dxf (or dwg) fi...

Saving to dxf or dwg crash

Hi Eric While experimenting with creating files in different formats to be able to create SVG files I found that with some RealCADD drawings I get a crash when I save to DXF or DWG. Not all drawings and even with a drawing that does crash, some layers are OK (selecting only visible layers) The error...

Re: Clipboard question

Good Morning Eric From what I read on the web, SVG files are used a lot (or is that just aspiration?) – though searching around I don't actually see that much. I can quite see that as XML text files they can integrate with HTML well for graphics, specially simple ones, logos etc. And are scalable et...

Re: Clipboard question

Hi Eric Ok - I understand now. I recall that PICT wasn't that great a format anyway – which I guess is why curved lines sometimes came out wobbly! I guess I'll stick with dxf transfers! I'm transferring from pretty old programs – my MacSurf is version 7 (about 1998 – the last version for Mac's) and ...

Clipboard question

I've been meaning to explore this for a long while! RealCADD doesn't seem to share the clipboard very much. For example text can be copied and pasted from a word processing program (such as Pages), spreadsheet etc. into RealCADD – provided the text tool is selected first. And RealCADD text can be co...

Re: Chamfer and Fillet

Hi GeorgeK Honestly I wouldn't worry about using beta versions – I've been doing it (testing new versions etc) for years now with RealCADD – it is usually very reliable in beta and quite safe. But you can also fix the problem (until b6 is official) by cutting the lines you want to chamfer/fillet – e...

Re: And a mild request ...

It's great Eric - works a treat. Seems to work on multiple zooms from the one mouse click too – perfect. On a big drawing, even with Layers and Views, it can get tedious to move around and then go deep into a detail. This makes it much quicker and saves a lot of scrolling around and frustration! Vie...

Re: And a mild request ...

Wouldn't you have to move very steadily from the last mouse position to the zoom box? Suppose you hesitated as you travelled – ran out of mouse mat – etc??

Re: And a mild request ...

Hi Eric

Yes that would be fine - would you click the mouse to fix the position?

Cheers -- George
