Re: fills and trim

Hi, to create a hole inside a hatch you need to select it and click inside it with the Hatch tool. Then the method is exactly the same as that you use to create a hatch: click to define the next vertex, double-click to close. You can also edit, add or delete any of its vertices or delete the entire ...

Re: HD2015 TEXT FUNCTION PROBLEMS

Hi Jeffrey and welcome to the forum!

We addressed that situation and released version 2016.0.1 about two weeks ago. If you haven't done already, I'd suggest you download and check that update. That should solve the problems with the text box. Hope that helps!

Re: HighDesign 2016 is here!

It is most likely related to the previous beta key being recognised. Try removing it in HighDesign 2015 from the About > License window and launch 2016.

Re: Door Framing, Shortcuts & Text

Doors and casement windows are scale-sensitive: the level of detail decreases with the scale, so that the same door is represented with thickness, casing and frame at 1:10, but as simple lines at 1:100. In 2016, we've added a new simple door type that draws the simplified door commonly found in draw...

Re: fills and trim

1. The closest at the moment is the Fit at Arc option: select the hatch, hover on the vertex of a hole to open the menu, select Fit Arc at Click and click on an arc object. This is especially useful when adding a hatch or fill to a profile with rounded corners generated by the Fillet command. FitArc...

Re: Dimension Leader and Free Text

Use the menus on the Properties bar, between the line type and the pen weight buttons. As for all objects, you can either set them in advance or apply to the selection.

Re: Walls joins

Is that a 1.8.7 project? Walls in pre-2015 versions used different method of determining the joins and some connections may break when opened in 2015. If the situation occurs only in a few walls, you can use the Repair Wall tool. If it occurs in many areas of the project, I would suggest to use the ...

Re: HOW much RAM are you guys burning?

I suspect that the slower speed is not related to RAM usage. Activity Monitor reports 93.2 MB for an empty project, which of course grows depending on the project being loaded. For a comparison, the average browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc.) can use more than 900 MB. With AutoCAD projects, pay attentio...

Re: Dimension Leader and Free Text

The Annotation tool is what you are looking for. It is a method of the Texts tool and you can use it to add leaders and labels to the project.

When used on symbols, the Annotation tool also prompts a description of the object, like type, size, preset name, etc.

Re: Selection tool is not working

Hello David, when something like that happens -though actually that is the first time we ever hear something like that :) - the best thing to do is close and reopen the document. If the problems persist, there are some extra steps you may take: Use the Repair command under Help > Repair Document. Us...
