Re: MSCAD 2015 Crashing

It appears to be helping with my crashing, but it has done nothing for my 'Right Mouse Button' setting. i.e. I have my Right Mouse Button set to bring up the Short Cut Menu when an entity is selected, however, 6/7 times out of 10 it will repeat my last command instead of bringing up the Short Cut M...

Re: MSCAD 2015 Crashing

The crashing was ridiculously bad for me. So bad that I gave up on 2015 and just kept using 2014. I recently went back to it for one last try, figuring that it must be just one random setting that I have overlooked. After a bit of investigation, it turns out I was right. I have fixed my crashing pro...

Re: Lock a polyline viewport

Glad I could help.

You could also use the draw order command to send the polyline under the viewport, or I think its also safe to delete the polyline once you have created the viewport as well. (Don't test that theory with something important though :D )

Re: Lock a polyline viewport

After you have created your viewport, select it by using a crossing window. At the top of your properties panel the drop-down should now read 'All(2)'. Click on the drop-down and it should show 'Polyline(1)' and 'Viewport(1)'. Select viewport and you can adjust the properties.

Exporting 2010 toolbars to 2013 and other stuff

2013 Does not have the image toolbar that was in 2010. If I export the Image toolbar from 2010 and import it into 2013 will it work? Also, is it possible for me to re-jig what appears in the right click pop-up menu (the one that appears when you right click when the grips are on)? Also, I'm sure the...

However, if you copy an entity which is on the desired layer from one dwg to another, it doesn't re-name the l...

Re: Inserting a paragraph of text into a drawing.

You can paste text into the Multiline text box using Ctrl V. If you cant see anything after doing that, highlight the black space in the box (left click drag) and then change the colour to white (there's some sort of bug you can read about in the knowledgebase). It's more than likely your text has a...

Please put ms_rotoline back the way it was!

I have always used the ms_rotoline command for its intended function but I have also used it to rotate blocks/symbols as well. I used it a lot. Every day. I know it wasn't supposed to, but it did, and it was excellent. Today I installed 10.7.0.5 and it only rotates text. Not blocks. I would rather ...

I suspect that is where your problem may lie, especially if the logo is there when you print onto paper.

This drawing setting drove me nuts for years when I was just using Intellicad (without Microsurvey).

Turns out we only need the contours for now but I will definitely give your suggestions a shot Glen (jsut so I can learn something new). Would drawing the tin, exploding it a couple of times and the auto adding points to the lines that are left over do the same thing?
