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...

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...

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.

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...
