Re: HighDesign Development Making Great Progress

Betas are still in review - 1.8.7 is really solid though... so there's really no rush for most projects.

Re: Inference Keys

I figured it out - Reset the PRAM or NRAM on intel macs... Hold down Option+Command+P+R before the gray restart screen; keep holding through second restart chime and release with the second gray screen

Are you all drawing a lot? Midwest US is really busy.

Inference Keys

I'm on 10.9 Mavericks now and HD 1.8.7... I can't get the option keys to work for mirror and selection of whole objects... have I deselected something in the Prefs? Are you guys seeing this problem?

Thanks, A

Re: Autocad

Exporting via DXF is more reliable than dwg in my experience.

Re: Section + Elevation workflow

I use views sim to Matthew - moving from drawing to drawing via views built in sheet/layers saves time especially in large projects.

Re: Walls

I would move away from walls... some people use them... I can never really get them to close/work, snap to, dimension, etc.

Re: symbols - files

you can put all your symbols in one folder, where ever that wants to be - just point HD to the location. I don't believe you can point to separate libraries

Re: Library

There's usually no problem inserting dxf/dwg's. However when you create the new symbok with a text field as part you will have to explode it to edit when you add it back to a drawing.

Re: Library

I dont believe there is a change in symbol size. Several of us a couple years ago tossed around the idea of building a user based symbol database kind of like Sketchup did... but could figure out how/where to place the database... I import DWG/DXF images a lot, especially from plumbing manufacturers...

Re: PDFs revisited

My concerns with PDFs via Print, Save As PDF are that the PDFs are not flattened. So the files are huge and take a long time to load. I'm not that familiar with flattening routines, but recognize it could be part of the problem.

Re: HighDesign Development Making Great Progress

Now I'm noticing more in the screen shot... what do you see?

Two windows open at once
Lines and Lineweights at the top of the panel
Zoom/Views on lower right
Snaps at bottom left
Maybe a paperspace-like view called Layout
Perhaps a way to import 3D models
