Re: Any ex PowerCADD users here?

Could it be possible to test the conversion module to import the PowerCADD files? For me also, as PowerCADD user since over 20 years, would be a fundamental function to be able to open and edit with HigDesign the drawings made with Powercadd. Thank you for any effort you would spend for this abilit...

Re: Any ex PowerCADD users here?

Hi, there are a number of PowerCADD users that have switched to HighDesign in the last year, especially in the last two months after the announcement of PowerCADD's retirement. I guess they're not on the forum yet. Speaking of PowerCADD, it might interest you that we have almost completed the conver...

Re: Viewport

The border takes the current defaults, so you can either set it to "No Colour" before creating a new viewport, or change it later.

Re: Blog: Using Sheets, layouts and viewports

Currently, viewports support a single source view. In the future we may explore the possibility to add more sources.

Locking can be done through layers: place the viewport on a layer and lock that layer.

I did try exporting to dwg and dxf, from R6, but these would not open in HD2017 either. Is there anyway to get my R6 files open in HD2017 for the time being?
Have you tried using the command Save Special > Previous HighDesign Project Version?
