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.

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...

Layers are one of the most powerful features in CAD, and using them efficiently can make a huge difference in how a project evolves and is managed in time. In HighDesign, layers can be quickly accessed through the Layers pane on the sidebar, that lists all the project layers and provides quick acces...

The 2015.2.1 update greatly improves DWG compatibility. I would suggest you to install this new version and test your files.
