Re: What is CAD?

I am enjoying the blog too. Liking the section on selecting software. I feel like I've been in limbo for two years. Sampling this and that for my macbook pro. Windows and autocad background so I have a bazillion old project files. I like the look and simpleness of HD but it is very different from wh...

videos

I was looking through the videos at http://www.ilexsoft.com/highdesign/media.html One did not function. The video on inserting doors and windows. I thought it was a deficiency on the part of my computer…quicktime or something, but other videos from the same page opened and functioned well. Anyone no...

Re: Curious about High Design

hatches - fills

Were any new hatch patterns added to the new version? Stone or concrete for instance. Is there a shingle hatch pattern?

Group Disappears

Is this standard behavior? From some geometry I had placed including text, I selected and created the group and then the group of objects disappeared and i cannot find them. Where could they have gone?

CREATE SYMBOLS

I am trying to create a new symbol. I have selected the geometry which includes text, click file>save special and the options are all greyed out. Is this because it is trial version or did i do something wrong.

Layers

Why are there multiple layers with the same name? 31. Walls, 52. Walls, 73. Walls. Do you normally remove the duplicates or rename? Are they useful for different floor levels in a building? Is that the rationale behind them? And, after turning off all layers, an object still is visible? Coincidental...
