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...

Re: HighDesign Development Making Great Progress

Betas are still in review - 1.8.7 is really solid though... so there's really no rush for most projects.

Re: Inference Keys

I figured it out - Reset the PRAM or NRAM on intel macs... Hold down Option+Command+P+R before the gray restart screen; keep holding through second restart chime and release with the second gray screen

Are you all drawing a lot? Midwest US is really busy.

Inference Keys

I'm on 10.9 Mavericks now and HD 1.8.7... I can't get the option keys to work for mirror and selection of whole objects... have I deselected something in the Prefs? Are you guys seeing this problem?

Thanks, A

Re: Autocad

Exporting via DXF is more reliable than dwg in my experience.
