RealCADD5.32b5-b6-b7-b8

Post by Eric Pousse »

Bonjour,

Some news after a long delay without.

In this new beta version, you will find a new menu "pdf" :

This menu allows you to work on pdf file :
- Annotate a pdf, import a pdf file as background on which you can draw with all tools of RealCADD.
You can saved your drawing as a RealCADD file and open it after to continue to annotate the pdf.
When your annotation is finished, you can save the annotated pdf file with the menu "Export as pdf..."
There is a known bug if you add rotated texts.

- Edit a pdf, import a pdf file and extract the vectorial objects from it.
So don't try it on a scan...
There is some problem with complex files and with some texts but with I have many good results.
Depending on how the pdf file is written, dashed lines can be exploded in many little lines as the hatches or the textures.
Also with pdf made with older version of RealCADD.
Pdf files made by printing as pdf with this version will be better : dashed lines, hatches, textures will be recognise as objects.

This new version is here.

Thanks to try it and send me the pdf files with problems.

And there was me thinking there really wasn't anything more that could be added to RealCADD!!!

PDF files are such a pain!! So it'll great to be able to do some editing at least, all within the RealCADD environment.

BUT - at the moment if I load the new version, all the menus are dimmed out so I can't do anything – except the Tools are live and working ???

Cheers -- George

George,

Can you download b5 again, please ?
I have modified it without changing the number.
It is OK now for old systems (I think ;))

Cordialement.

Hi Eric

I'm currently on Ventura 13.6.6 And it badly wants to update to Sonoma 14.4.1!

New version is looking good now!

Hi Eric

It's really impressive so far in respect of what it does with PDF's – both text and drawings. So much better than any so-called PDF editing programs that I've tried in the past.

Hi Eric

The only oddity that I've found so far is what it does with radii. Mind you dxf does odd things with radii too1

Thank you George for your file !

Version 5.32b6 resolves the problems that you have reported and some others.

But there is always some problems.
