Disappearing Block Insertions

On a couple of my drawings certain blocks disappear every time I open the drawing and I have to reinsert them. They are still listed in "Blocks Explorer" but are not displayed. Once I re-insert they display fine until I close this drawing. Now every time I open this drawing I have to check all these...

Re: MSCAD 2015 Crashing

Add me to the list of constant crashes. Seems to be getting worse. Along with a text editor that doesn't work properly. I am also thinking of going back to 2014. This is getting to too much. Spend half my time redoing things....This needs to be fixed!!

Sometimes I can only enter a couple of characters and it jumps to the next line. I like to spread text across face of plan but the way this reacts now, ...

Re: Polyline Toolbar

Caution.....do not do this unless you have exported/saved any custom menus you may have created. This sets everything back to stock form and deletes any changes you may have made. DAMHIK....

Cannot snap onto Blocks

In some drawings I cannot seem to snap onto any blocks that have been inserted into the drawing. I am working on a drawing right now that I cannot snap onto anything that has been inserted as a block. I have no problem doing this on any other drawing. Is there a setting for the block attributes I am...

Re: MicroSurvey CAD 2010 Service Pack

Has there been any follow up on this issue? Your work around does not work for my hp430, and plotting pdf's everytime is wasting a lot of my time. I do not want to have to start changing all my preset borders because of this issue. Everything was fine until I installed this patch. :roll:

Northings/Eastings Backwards...Cad2004

It seems that when I input coordinates using cad, the Northings and Eastings are backwards. I can also see this when dragging mouse across screen. Being from Canada I need to set this to Northings/Eastings. I don't usually need this but am stuck on this right now. I think it was set correct before, ...

Perpendicular Offsets for curves?

Is it possible to do Perp Offset to a curve? The perp_ties comand works great for 2 points on a line, but I would also like to do this on a curve. Sometimes the tie to a curve is incorrect using ms_house_tie. I have used this type of comand in other cogo packages.

Losing my Bars

I keep losing any bars I have placed in drawing that are attached to points in data base when I load my drawing with "audit data base" on. Is there a parameter setting I am missing? Also I can still not slide text along a line. It always defaults to ortho and moves it along the east west axis. Any t...

Text Rotation

I keep losing the ability to rotate text after placing it in my drawings using the standard "leroy text routine". Seems to work at beginning, but somewhere along I lose the ability. The interactive box is always ticked. Any thoughts?
