Re: Mac OS Catalina

I describe my experience in my other thread.
I haven't followed up on Andrews suggestions but will update the thread when I do.
I hope to get back to it next week.

Re: HighDesign R5 Zoom, Selection, inertial scrolling

Quoting is difficult so I will just answer in the order asked. I'm using a mouse but it certainly does feel like a trackpad is involved. I assumed it was caused by use of a Magic Mouse which essentially is a mouse with a trackpad on top. Finally I do always have a trackpad hooked up but it is kept o...

Re: HighDesign R5 Zoom, Selection, inertial scrolling

Hello Andrew, I know how difficult software creation is and for whatever reason I really want to use High Design. Here is the simplest example I can come up with. 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 z...

Re: New Video Tutorial: Using Snaps

Hello Andrew, I just watched the video on snaps and here is my question. How does the snaps UI relate to one's snap selection. I had assumed that one would only select the snap style one was interested in. I also never understood if there is a freehand mode? Finally snap to grid is only for the majo...

Re: HighDesign R5 Zoom, Selection, inertial scrolling

Well I found the magnification tool on the opposite side of the drawing of the rest of the tools. It actually also has the hand tool and the zoom to fit.

This seems like a nice tidy collection of tools but in an unexpected place, the first time:)

HighDesign R5 Zoom, Selection, inertial scrolling

I tried to use HighDesign 2017 and at times it was great and at other times, some sort of strange zoom scrolling, with a sort of interval delay takes over. I could never figure out what was going on but it always seemed like mouse events were getting lost or arriving way late. I was quite excited to...

Re: Scalling Hatches

This definitely helped. I will have to re-assemble my drawing to figure what values make sense, but I can see that the sheet scale is having a big effect.

Scalling Hatches

Hey All, I'm working with HD2017 on a Mac and I'm having a hard time getting fill/hatch to scale with my drawing. I have a background image of a 3/4 view photo of an old brick building and I want to create a quick sketch of it in stucco. I have done some rudimentary things and can see that what I wa...

Re: A Peek at the Future: What’s Ahead for HighDesign

Hey All, I just started using HD17 and I really love it. The single area that I find missing is the ability to add attributes to symbols for management of drawing objects. I’m hoping in this BIM announcement is the rudimentary support for this ability. The program is really great and feels very mode...
