Re: Offset

Currently there is no way to customize the Offset command. What you can do is to apply the Offset command to one line, press the "esc" key to terminate the command and repeat the procedure with the other line: this way the two resulting lines are not joined. Anyway, we consider your question as feat...

Re: accuracy lacking

This behaviour is reproducible when I move the rectangle by a vertex and click on the construction line: apparently the snap function in this case is not working as expected. With HighDesign 2015.2.1 when holding the Shift key this situation does not seem to occur.

Thank you for pointing it out.

Re: Need HD15 help :(

Well, to get 12 feet when you type 12' you need to set the units as "fractional feet and inches" because if the units are just "fractional inches" all the values are interpreted as inches: this way, to get 12 feet the right input should be 144". This is the expected behaviour.

Re: Hatches in HD15

Aloha Erin, Actually HighDesign 2015 comes with more hatch patterns than before since in HD 1.8.7 many patterns were variations of the main hatches. You just have to push the "Add Items" button in the Hatch Pattern Inspector to open the "Hatch Patterns" pane of the Drawing Manager window: use the le...

Re: help ...2015 and import *dxf....

Please send the DXF drawing to the support email address as an attachment: most likely what you are describing is connected with the setup of the right units and scale when importing the drawing as written by matthew.Stanfield. Consider that usually DXF drawings use mm or decimal inches at 1:1 drawi...

Re: Selecting filled polygons and hatches

The behaviour you are referring to in HD 1.8.7 was possible only for filled regions, not hatches, with the Arrow tool: anyway, we will look into it to make the selection of filled regions and hatches smoother.

Re: Centre Marks

In HighDesign 1.8.7 you can add a datum point, which is a method of construction objects, to the centre of the circle or you can draw the greek cross and save it as a new symbol for future use. Anyway, the datum point has a fixed size and you cannot use it to mark the diameters.
