Re: HighDesign R5 Zoom, Selection, inertial scrolling

Thank you for your feedback. I'll try to answer your questions: I open a drawing in High Design R5. I try to navigate the drawing at the current scale but instead of navigate the drawing the scale is zooming in or out. I decide that it looks like the mouse surface is acting as scroll wheel. I have t...

Re: R5 Workflows

Details are used to create additional drawings of the project that represent selected portions of a sheet at a larger scale, with added items, notes and dimensions. They are typically used to enlarge, at 1:5 or 1:10, a structural or mechanical view that is visible in a plan or section at 1:50 or 1:1...

Re: R5 Workflows

I've tried everything I can think of, but I haven't successfully placed a detail view into a layout yet. A detail with only the underlay will display empty when inserted in a viewport. The underlay is just a reference for further drawing. We are currently reviewing details and underlays to see if t...

And in 20 minutes of using the app I've run into loads of issues and bugs.
Please do send detailed reports, otherwise we have no chance to address the issues that you've run into and thus improve your experience with the software. Thank you.

Re: HighDesign R5 Zoom, Selection, inertial scrolling

Hi, you can change the location of the view tools to any of the sides or corners of the drawing area, or place them back into the main toolbar as in HD 2017. Right-click on one of the icons and select the new placement, or go to Preferences > Workspace > View Controls. Click the attached gif to view...

Re: use of layer high design?

The HighDesign layer is the default layer that is created with every new project. It's not mandatory and it doesn't have special attributes. Since every object must belong to a layer and a sheet, new projects are created with the bare minimum of a default layer and sheet, which is more or less what ...

Re: creating PDF file at 1:50

If you experience issues with a particular feature, the best way to have it fixed is to report it with as many details as possible. The ideal would be an email to support with a description of the issue and, if applicable, the steps required to reproduce the issue and screenshots/files. The more inf...

Re: Next release

In HighDesign 2019 styles will be a much more central feature. We redesigned the whole engine and improved the way objects are "styled", so as to encourage a workflow in which graphic styles and element types are the standard and custom, non-styled elements are exceptions. This is particularly usefu...
