Re: Placing Doors & windows

I found the little movies at http://www.ilexsoft.com/highdesign/media.html to be useful when starting out. One of them covers your query, I think.

Board activity

Just to say it’s a joy to see some activity on this board at the moment - now all we need is some (visible) activity from Ilexsoft!

I repeat my request to Ilexsoft regarding Mountain Lion. Is it being readied to run on ML, which is only weeks away?

Re: Beta of HD

Probably not the best place to discuss alternatives! But, possibly, MacDraft Pro?

Re: Any news?

Is there anyone there at Perugia? Come on, its not unreasonable to expect at least a response to periodic requests for information, given that the beta release was expected some 6 months ago. An update would be gratefully received!

Re: Any news?

Indeed. In July of last year we were told; We just did not want to promise any unrealistic release date we might not be able to keep. The new version has reached the last stage before the release of a public preview. By the end of this summer we will be able to upload a working beta and the final re...

Adjustable icon sizes, support scroll ball

I note the side bar icons are slightly more spaced in 1.8.7 - I'd really like the ability to adjust the size of all the icons, top and side, as I find them all a little small. In addition, the layer control and line type controls at the bottom do not support Apple's mouse scroll ball, which is reall...

Been using it with 10.6.6 and haven't had any issues. Jumping back to 1.8.5 I don't have the problems simon has - its all fine.

Re: AutoCAD translation

For all of its many faults, Vectorworks imports dwg files really well, retaining all of the text formatting, unlike HD, which doesn't. I can open the same dwg file on the same Mac and end up with completely different looking drawings. I haven't tried it in the other direction.
