The capabilities are all based upon what the font definitions contain, not what our program does. We could probably add the ability to place the superscript character, in the routine, but if someone uses a different font, then we are limited by that font. That was why I showed one example of using a...

You need to create a font in a template drawing called AREA_STYLE and set it to use the font ARIAL.TTF (or another similar font that has the definition of the squared symbol defined in it). Or edit the style in the FONTS command to use the arial.ttf font definition. Then in the Labeling defaults, yo...

As we discussed on the phone, COGO Curve can set multiplt points long the curve quite quickly - then the Stakeout routine will generate an angle/distance report to printout.

The original issue was reported a year ago but the updated information for 9.2.0 was added to it. Nothing new has come up as yet with 9.2.1.6.

If anything new is found it will be added to the article.

It is probably more VISTA stuff. You should see if you can ensure that you are not hidding files and folders. If you are the admin for the computer, and set the system to NOT hide files and folders, then you may be able to find and run the file correctly. Try going to the Control Panel, look at it u...

Check to see if the command PROXYSHOW is set to 1. If they are proxy entities, they should show up when it is set to 1 (which is the default). If they are not proxy entities, then I would like to get a copy of the drawing to examine. Maybe these multileaders you are mentioning are some new sort of e...

Another option might be to use our AutoMAP routine to control the layers points are placed on based upon the descriptions. If new points are added to the job, they will automatically be layered based upon the AutoMAP library having an entry that matches the description.
