Re: adding drop down menus

Worked great. Was loathe to hit reset before because I was afraid I'd lose all my toolbar customization and the few menu items I had. They are all back now just need to plunk toolbars back in place. Many thanks.

Running MSCAD 2005. I upgraded my grahpics card and had to get a new key for MSCAD. Somewhere in that process many of my drop down menus disappeared. Lost MsCalc MsDesign etc... How do I get those back? Tried reimporting the .mnu file but still only have MStools and MSpoints as an option. Can still ...

Thanks for the replies. All I can say is uhoh. Dealer is out of state and I wouldn't be able to test it out. Sounds like it will not work hopefully the update comes up fast! Instrument is being shipped now.

Support for Topcon 9003 Robotic?

Am going to purchase a 9003 robotic topcon. The 8000 series is listed as supported by fieldgenius and the salesman :roll: thinks the code is similar enough that it should run the 9003 series as well. Is new topcon going to be supported anytime soon?

Thanks,

Using FG2006 on a Topcon FC-100. Having problems with ActiveSync and USB calling my FC-100 an unknown device. This happens about once every month or 2 after a window update. This time can't figure it out so popped the card out and tried to just copy the exported FG2004 project over from the syncwiza...

Jason, Thanks for the reply, in preparing my raw file to send to you I got to looking and all points with an SP in front of them didn't get adjusted when I hit the adjust points button.

geodetic coordinates

Having some odd things happening with transformations in 2006. Maybe I am using a wrong procedure. What we've been doing is going out with a local set of coordinates. Transforming on a few monuments for search positions. Then once we have searched for and tied all the monuments re-transforming using...

ipd color

The color of my independent point descriptions is yellow which is awful when I have a yahoo map image, primarily yellow and white colors in the background. Is there a way to change this?

There are a few things that are critical and needed. 1) Cellular modem support for TOPCON GPS 2) Ability to make a local projection. Not a transformation but a actual projection.

I don't have the cell modem as of yet so haven't been able to try. From what I understand I have to connect to a website address through the cell modem to receive corrections. If this is done through the cell maybe I will be able to just hook into the modem and receive the corrections no problem. Do...

Cellular modem

The city of Bend, OR has a permanent base station broadcasting corrections by cellular modem. I am using a TopCon Hi-Per+ system and FG 2005. Can FieldGenius use the correction from a Cell Modem and how do I go about making that happen?

thanks for researching the problem

The connection didn't work well with 1.1 either. Will try the new 1.2 update. Recently reprogrammed the radio to my new liscensed frequencies and changed some modem settings so will see if any of that helps. Thanks for your attention in this matter.
