Re: HighDesign R5 Now Available

I've bought it as an upgrade to 2017 via www.ilexsoft.com/store/renew.html - I was sent a new license key to enter into R5, which all worked fine. My cost was £183.48 inc VAT.

Re: HighDesign R5 Now Available

That’s good, I think short videos are a really useful way of demonstrating/learning and often so much better than a written description.

Re: HighDesign R5 Now Available

Exciting stuff - I've bought and look forward to getting to grips with it. I particularly like the option of drawing 1:1 as I'm so used to doing that now in SketchUp.

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

That's big news! BIM is of little interest to me as a sole trader involved in small residential projects, but I fully accept it is coming (indeed has arrived) and has it's place, but 2D isn't going away anytime yet. I like the idea of breaking the packages down rather than one large program with a l...

Re: HighDesign 2017.1 BETA 4

An improvement - dropping a dwg or a dxf onto either the dock icon or a blank sheet will open the import dialogue and open the file. Unfortunately, the 'Import' dialogue box still has the same greyed files issue. In addition, the vegetation layer of these survey files is not rendering, although list...

Re: HighDesign 2017.1 BETA 4

Sorry to say that this still doesn't work for me - dwg and dxf files are greyed out and not selectable from either the import or open menu. Dropping the file onto the program icon just opens a blank sheet.

HD2017 doesn't recognise .dwg file

As the title - .dwg on the desktop, go to Import, HD2017 doesn't allow the file to be selected. Works fine in HD2016.

Shame there is no way to edit posts on tis forum, nor add screenshots - so I've expanded on my post above; On first launch today, I see a 2016 Beta splash screen and 'Thank you for trying High Design 2015' The counter says 29 days, although this is the first time I have launched it, and there is no ...

Re: HighDesign 2016 is here!

Well done and thank you for continuing to develop the program in a timely manner.

On launch today, I see a 2016 Beta splash screen and 'Thank you for trying High Design 2015'

The counter says 29 days but there is no way to proceed unless I purchase an upgrade.
