Re: R5 Workflows

I agree -- I assume the detail area tool grabs elements of the drawing and allows us to refine notes, dimensions, lifework at a differing scale. I guess I am missing the intention of this tool?

Beachball on Delete

Seems like an old problem -- getting a couple second beachball on deletion of a line. My drawing is not that heavy... any suggestions on clearing the cache? MacOS 10.14.6 R5 2019.1.0 (1647) 64-bit Drawing is 914 KB Undoable actions set to 30 Clear undo buffer on Save is "off" (going to set this to "...

Re: R5 Workflows

The Detail Area tool, drop down to save with a name works. I can not seem to place this on a new Layout using the + Veiwport tool. A small square detail rectangle is inserted but does not have any line work visible. Somehow, I'm able to double click or get it to link back to the Detail, but in that ...

R5 Workflows

So far, R5 seems a lot faster with screen refreshes and action -- thanks for that big improvement. I could us a couple simple tutorials or guides for some of the new features: what happened to the Print Area tool? is there ability to select certain sheets for specific layouts how to selection portio...

Re: HighDesign 2016.0.2 Now Available

Thanks for the improvements. I'm still not able to float between Length entries like before. I usually work in Fractional Feet and Inches mode. In 1.8 I could enter 5/8 or .625 without the " and the command was successful. I still find that this is inconsistent in 2016.0.2 for two commands: It seems...

HOW much RAM are you guys burning?

I just upgraded to a late 2015 27" iMac 5K with 8 MB RAM...

I'm also trying to jump full time into HD 2015.3.1 and the first simple Autocad drawing 373kb I've imported is slow to select lines, run commands, etc.

Any ideas out there? How much RAM are you using with HD 2015.3.1?

Thanks

Dimension Leader and Free Text

The Ordinate Dimension tool that is a leader, arrow and text doesn't seem to have a "free text" entry mode in 2015.3.1 In 1.8.7 I would use the Dimension radius leader to point to an object and then I had the option to write in a text like "Rigid Insulation" and edit it later. This new tool doesn't ...

Re: Need HD15 help :(

I finally decided to try 2015.2 after seeing too many things in the early release that were being worked out... and I've been working with HD for so many years in production that it was hard to make the change. The first big issue for me was how direct inputs to Length is being handled. I do not agr...

Re: A tip to get good printouts from PDF files

wow - that is indeed a priceless tip. there's been many times rushing to the printer before a meeting and we're all stymied by why certain lines are in the PDF on the screen but not the paper! When I look at export options in HD, I see the export to tiff option - do you know whether this is a RGB ti...
