Re: set printer + sheet size in Windows?

In HighDesign for Windows you can set the printer through the Print dialog: just click the Print button of the HighDesign Print Center window to open the Windows Print dialog and select the system default printer in the list of available printers. When you open the Page Setup dialog you get the opt...

set printer + sheet size in Windows?

I am trialling the windows version after having used high design plenty on macs before. can someone please tell me where or how I set the printer? Under page setup I am only given the option of A4 or 'letter' paper, and customisable margins. I am running windows 10. Here's a pic of the options I get...

Re: R5

Wow. Had a first play this evening, and there is plenty to get my head around, but still enough familiarity.
Layouts is a game changer! Finally it means I can focus on the drawings and worry about layout after... That had always been my most major frustration.
Look forward to delving deeper...

R5

Just had a quick play on R5 - many great looking developments.
I'll continue my explorations this evening. In the meantime any advice on the use of the new drafting / details / layouts capabilities? Even pointing me toward a tutorial...?
Thanks.

Re: How do I Create the Right File to send to a Remote Large Format Printer?

Are you on R5? If so this advice may not be relevant anymore, but I would set up my sheets and then print them to PDF. Gave great results.

Re: exporting/saving to previous versions?

I don't think it's possible. You can save an HD 2016 format file from HD 2017, but not earlier. HD 2016 does not have an option to save as 2015 (or earlier) file. Your only option is to export as DWG and hope HD 2015 doesn't make a complete mess of the subsequent import (which in my experience it p...

exporting/saving to previous versions?

After trying 2017, I think I am going to have to stick with HD 2015 a little longer. How do I get my file back into 2015?

Re: highdesign 2017 - first try

Didn't get the update notification. Glad to see my original post sparked some conversation. I want to address a couple of the issues discussed here, but am short of time at the moment... The intention of this post was just to say that 'export to dwg' is not working. When I select 'one file per sheet...

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 ...
