Re: Photoprogrammetry and Projections mystery

Hi, I can think of a couple of causes: a) launching 2015.3 after using 2016 may have altered the shortcut preferences file (because of the different underlying architectures). In this case, you would have to reset the preferences by holding down the Command and Shift keys while launching HighDesign....

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.
