PDFs revisited

The topics of PDF creation from HD seems to have been visited several years ago, with no real resolve, and i am now noticing more and more problems with my PDFs printed from HD. Though the problems seem to be linked specifically to Adobe Acrobat. First, a little history: We have two printers in town...

Snapping inside Symbols?

I searching this forum, it appears this was brought up in 2008, but never really answered. So i am asking it again. Is it possible to snap to points inside symbols? I have only ever been able to snap to symbol points, but never such things as mid-points, end-points, or even objects within a symbol. ...

Re: HighDesign on OSX Mountain Lion

I completely agree with macitect. It appears as though HD and it's users have been abandoned. I am afraid i may have to start looking for a new CAD solution soon. I will likely continue using HD until my system will no longer support it. It is frustrating to think of having to find and adapt to a ne...

Re: Beta of HD

I will add my voice once again to this request for a Beta of the next release. Or at the very least information as to when an update may be available. Customer service has very quickly degraded here. It seems we used to get prompt informative replies. Now, only silence. Please end the silence and gi...

Re: Any news?

It really does get to be quite ridiculous how quite things are on the update front. We keep getting promises of information, yet nothing comes of it. It really would be nice if ilexsoft would at least give monthly updates explaining that there is a delay with the release of the next version, since i...

Re: HighDesign 1.8.6 is now available for download!

I kind of thought there might be an 'official' announcement of the HD 1.8.7 update and maybe a word about when HD 2.0 might be expected.

Re: HighDesign 1.8.6 is now available for download!

Any chance we will see a beta release of HD 2 prior to the new year?

Re: Select items based on pen weights

Yes. Using Edit>Find (command-F) brings up a window from which you can set various criteria for selection. One of the options is 'Weight:' use this to set the desired pen weight and then "Find" or "Find All"

Earth Hatch

I took some time to create this earth hatch as i found using tiles to be somewhat tedious for irregular shapes. This hatch is by no means perfect, but it works better for me: [attachment=0]eartHatch.jpg[/attachment] The first step to create the hatch is to create a dashed line type. I set the linety...

Re: trimming ellipses

I do not know of any way to trim ellipses, but there is a tool to draw elliptical arcs. It is the last option in the circle tool set. It does seem to only do 1/4 arcs though. You can then use the object info window to adjust some of the parameters for greater control.

Re: AutoCAD translation

As i continue to have to work in AutoCAD, i am becoming increasingly annoyed with the fact that i have to scale my drawings from HD by a factor of 12 when i import them into AutoCAD. Does anyone have a tip for getting a 1:1 scaling from HD to AutoCAD.

Re: HighDesign 1.8.6 beta 1 Now Available

Did a little testing today. Functionality seems to be returned in 1.8.6b1 at least. Must of just been a glitch.

Re: HighDesign 1.8.6 beta 1 Now Available

Also, command-select does not allow me to select an individual object in a group anymore either.

Re: HighDesign 1.8.6 beta 1 Now Available

Just discovered that option-select no longer inherits properties either. Nor does shift-option-select match current properties.
