Re: Import Problem from AutoCAD

Hi and welcome to the forum! Modern DXF/DWG files typically save texts in the Unicode-8 text encoding, which is what HighDesign assumes as the input encoding during the conversion. Older files, up to version R14, would use plain ASCII, but we've encountered files saved in the Windows ISO encoding. U...

Re: R5

We are working on a video lesson about the workflow with detail areas and callouts, detail sheets, layouts and viewports. It will be in the same format as the "Essential Skills" videos we posted earlier this month.

Re: Tasto shift in Hig Design 5

Abbiamo condotto diversi test per verificare, e il tasto Shift ha funzionato normalmente bloccando la direzione sugli angoli fissi. In HighDesign questa funzione non è modificabile con preferenze, ma forse c'è una configurazione particolare sulla sua macchina che interferisce o altera il tasto Shift...

That is already possible, in a way, by saving the images as symbols, so you can have one image and as many...
