Re: Image scaling

Great news! When will the next update be released? It's very close. We're completing the final tests. I would also like to be able to use images as library items. Is there any chance for that? That is already possible, in a way, by saving the images as symbols, so you can have one image and as many...

Re: Image scaling

As a follow-up to this thread and the emails exchanged with support, I can anticipate that we redesigned the way images are managed. In the next update, image resizing operations, either via the settings panel, cursor, or object info, will be non-destructive: that means that it will be possible to m...

Re: Compound wall enhancement

1 - Compound Walls: The ability to select a surface of a component to be the reference for drawing a wall is a critical need. For instance, an exterior wall is typically placed in reference to the face of the structural material (studs, etc.). Interior walls are placed in reference to the centerlin...

Re: R5 Questions: Shortcuts and Renaming Print Area

Hi Erin, 1) We tested a renamed area and the change was retained, both during the session and after re-opening the file. What we noticed is that pressing Enter in the input field adds a new line, whereas it should simply close the field. You should click outside to confirm the input. Hint: to rename...

Re: Importare pdf in highdesign versione windows

Ciao Federico e benvenuto! Sono domande assolutamente pertinenti :) PDF: La versione Windows è ancora leggermente indietro rispetto a quella Mac per quanto riguarda alcune funzionalità.

Blog: Creating New Symbols

New blog post: "One of the most used features in CAD are undoubtedly symbols and blocks: you design a component once and re-use it many times in different projects, saving time and resources. HighDesign includes a default library of pre-made symbols ready to use in your project, but you can easily m...

Re: R5.2 & R5.3. File save

This last report seems to be related to custom templates. We'll look into it and will let you know. Addendum: We tested your file opening, adding objects and saving, and everything worked fine. Is it possible you double-clicked the file and it launched a previous version of HighDesign instead of the...

Re: Mac OS Catalina

We tested HighDesign 2017.2.2 and R5 on the latest Catalina beta and they run correctly. Anyway, in the near future, Apple will restrict the ability to install packages that do not meet certain security measures they introduced last year (hardened runtimes and notarized packages, for the curious).

Re: HighDesign R5 Zoom, Selection, inertial scrolling

Thank you for your feedback. I'll try to answer your questions: I open a drawing in High Design R5. I try to navigate the drawing at the current scale but instead of navigate the drawing the scale is zooming in or out. I decide that it looks like the mouse surface is acting as scroll wheel. I have t...

Re: R5 Workflows

Details are used to create additional drawings of the project that represent selected portions of a sheet at a larger scale, with added items, notes and dimensions. They are typically used to enlarge, at 1:5 or 1:10, a structural or mechanical view that is visible in a plan or section at 1:50 or 1:1...
