Yes, we're familiar with SketchUp although we do not use it in our everyday work. It's mainly used for testing its compatibility with HighDesign. Construction lines would be helpful, I agree. They would be even more useful if the user could make them with any tool, not just a Measure tool, or by pre...

Re: constrained length

1. Using the constrained length option with the line tool when I press on the second point (end point of my line) the line disappears... Any ideas as to why?

I'm glad you noticed the ad, thanks! Other campaigns are planned as well. Don't worry you see so few registered users in this forum: there are much, much more HighDesign users!

Re: Wish List: User Assignable Key Command Shortcuts

Sketch Up does this very nicely... ... and so will do HighDesign! Shortcuts are essential to any professional user. When used frequently, combinations of keys become automatisms. Having to change them when switching to another software actually results in a real slowdown of the workflow, with less ...

The differences of speed between Classic and OS X versions aren't specific to HighDesign. Many other applications had similar problems when ported to the "new" system. The main reason is that the new threading model in Mac OS X does not allow applications to take full control of the processor. In OS...

The problem with print-alignment has been fixed . The issue only showed up on some printer models, and specifically those not supporting a resolution of 360 dpi. An 1.2.2 update will be released soon. In the meantime, if you're experiencing these problems you can download a beta version which inclu...

We've not been able to reproduce that behaviour. Could you please post some more details: - current drawing scale - Print Preview settings, such as Layout, Print Area and "Fit Print Area" state (on/off) Also, does changing the Layout option (e.g. top-left) produce any results? Please send a PDF and ...
