Re: highdesign 2017 - first try

'Find' by pen weight also does not work. Text doesn't display correctly when rotated. Crash after pressing return after having entered a number value for multiple array. On the plus side it appears the second behaviour described above has been eradicated. I don't know what has made a difference but...

highdesign 2017 - first try

After a long break from HD, I downloaded 2017 release 2.2, to see where it is at. Sadly, within a couple operations I am already frustrated. The selection tool (rectangular) only works if I move the cursor from top to bottom. If I move it bottom to top it does not select anything. Is this intended b...

Re: fills and trim

Wonderful work Andrew. Grazie. Regarding the fill, for my requirements at the moment I have used the old method of putting a white fill over top. This workaround is much more usable now that selecting stacked items is so much easier. Trim feature - just downloading the most recent release and excite...

fills and trim

2 questions: 1. Fills are so much better. Especially the fact that holes can be cut out of them. Is there a way to cut circles out? 2. Trim - there are many benefits to how trim now works. One thing I do wish for though is that I could select a trim(ming) line and cut the entire segment on one side ...

area calcs

Nobody gives areas in mm2, but many work in mm for drafting. There really should be an option to have a different unit set for area calculations. A work around in the meantime is to set the sheet to m to do all the area calcs then set it back, but this is of course a pain when doing revisions. thanks.

sound output

I have always used the 'play sounds' option with HighDesign and I would like to continue with it but it is really annoying when i am listening to good music and the sounds come out from the same speakers at the same (loud) volume. The mac OS sound effects can be played through the internal speakers ...

Re: autoscroll

Autoscroll with click-drag has been fixed for the next update. However, to activate the scrolling in 2015 the cursor must stay within the drawing area, not over or beyond the scrollbars or the rulers. Right, that does work, thanks. I didn't see the documentation for this. It is a good idea, but it ...

Re: autoscroll

Thanks Beagle!

I have now tried it with both 'click-click'and 'click-drag' and neither work... For me it isn't just drawing lines though, it's any action. This is really frustrating.

Re: paste properties in 2015

Skywagon, THanks for that. Not what I was waiting or hoping for... One of the things I've always loved about HD is not having to move my mouse around everywhere choosing different tools, menu items, etc. Except for actual drawing I generally use nothing but shortcuts. For me this renders the copy/pa...

paste properties in 2015

Anybody have success with copy/paste of properties yet? In the manual it says that after instigating paste the cursor will turn into a bucket when hovering over other objects. THis is not happenning for me. If I try to copy paste properties of a wall for instance I get no bucket and it just wants to...
