Re: Door Framing, Shortcuts & Text

If there could be a way to control what is shown or not, regardless of scale, that would be great. The situation i have run into is trying to put a door at the intersection of two rooms. The problem being that the trim extents into the perpendicular wall. If i could just have the option to turn off ...

Re: Door Framing, Shortcuts & Text

I am wondering the same thing about the doors with no framing / casing / trim. While i can see how this feature would be nice at times, it is not usually what i would want to show on my drawings. So i did some experimenting. It seems if you set the door thickness to 1-1/4" or less, the door trim goe...

Re: Preferences Reset in HD1.8.7

It is good to know that i am not alone in this. I am thinking i might delete HD2015 from my iMac and see if that fixes the problem. I do have a couple of projects in HD2015, so i will probably keep it on my laptop. But i do not foresee making the switch to using HD2015 for quite some time. There are...

Preferences Reset in HD1.8.7

I have been fighting with this for a long time. Pretty much ever since downloading the first Beta version of the new HD. Every once in a while when i open HD 1.8.7, it is as though it is the first time i am opening it. Most all my preferences have been reset. Work space, drawing units, layers, line ...

Re: Need HD15 help :(

I have just noticed the input units problem as well. I think this is new with the latest update. I am certain that the previous version of HD15 the input units were inches not feet. That being said, i can input 10" to get it to work. Still an annoyance, but not as bad as what you are experiencing.

Default Layer Color

Is there a way to set the default layer color in HD2015? What i am looking for is that whenever i create a new layer it is created with a particular color (in my case 255). Right now, new layers are created with seemingly random colors and i have to go in and change each layer to black. I have looke...

Re: Selecting filled polygons and hatches

I have found this behavior to be extremely annoying at best and frustrating at worst.

It definitely needs to be fixed.

Re: paste properties in 2015

It is working fine for me.

Using alt-click to copy and alt-cmd-click to paste.

The cursor turns to a 4-way arrow whenever cmd is pressed, but it still pastes the properties.

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

I too have trouble when trying to bring in DXFs.

I cannot give you a definitive answer, but it seems to have something to do with the scale of the sheet. Try setting the sheet to various scales and see if that helps.

Select Objects in a Group

After a couple of false starts in HD2015 due to poor importing of HD1.8 files, i am just now getting into using it on a new project. One thing i am having a bit of trouble with is that i can no longer seem to select individual objects within a group with out ungrouping first. In HD1.8, i can use cmd...

Re: HD2015 and degree of a circle.

Under Drawing > Project Properties > Sheet Units there is a setting for type of angle. Next to that is where you can set what you want North to be. It defaults to 90º, but you can set it to anything you want. Setting it to 0º puts North facing to the right of the screen, but does not really alter an...
