Cogo Suggestion

Post by Matthew Fore » Fri Jun 01, 2007 7:58 am

I don't think this can be achieved in the current version of MSCad but may I suggest that when using the COGO command that the previously used bearing is "remembered" for the next input. Either way, if the next bearing is different it will have to be typed in but if they are the same then no need to keep retyping it, just hit enter.

You are correct that this is not an option in the current version of MSCAD. What you can do that may help is to enter in the two point numbers with 2 periods between them, for the bearing:
eg. 3..6 would then use the bearing from 3 to 6 automatically.

I will ensure the idea is added to the wish list for future consideration.

one of the most useful routines for me is the Batch Cogo feature. I often create my own files as I find its quicker than cogo.
It does need a certain level of concentration but then mistakes dont do damage (important to keep point protection on, but thats true in most routines) and are easy to fix.
Anyone not sure what the format is its easy to create one using Mscad and build on that in notepad.
Not really an answer for your issue Matthew, just adding a comment on side.
regards, Richard

Using the CADLines dialog, when entering in bearings and distances, they are remembered for easy repeatablility. This may be an alternative that could be handy for you.
