Re: HighDesign on the Mac App Store and the Microsoft Store

I've no issue at all with you developing one product for the Mac App Store, on a subscription basis, and the logic is clear, but I sincerely hope that the subscription model doesn't creep to the Ilexsoft Store in due course. SketchUp moved to subscription with lots of promises about development, few...

Re: HighDesign Users in the UK...?

I'm in England. I've not heard of any UK specific group. This site is the obvious one, but it's fairly quiet, with occasional bursts of posting. I've had HD for many years, but haven't used it much for quite a while - I use SketchUp + Layout, but only for 2D, which I know isn't the best use of Sketc...

Re: HighDesign R6 Now Available

I don't see any way to bump my current R5 up to R6 without paying the full price. Entering my serial number on the renewals page just shows a red box, although it is valid until the end of the year..

Re: HighDesign R5 Now Available

I've bought it as an upgrade to 2017 via www.ilexsoft.com/store/renew.html - I was sent a new license key to enter into R5, which all worked fine. My cost was £183.48 inc VAT.

Re: HighDesign R5 Now Available

Check for updates says a new version is available - 1648. Selecting download, I get the same version I have - 1647.

Re: HighDesign R5 Now Available

That’s good, I think short videos are a really useful way of demonstrating/learning and often so much better than a written description.

Re: HighDesign R5 Now Available

Exciting stuff - I've bought and look forward to getting to grips with it. I particularly like the option of drawing 1:1 as I'm so used to doing that now in SketchUp.

Re: A Peek at the Future: What’s Ahead for HighDesign

That's big news! BIM is of little interest to me as a sole trader involved in small residential projects, but I fully accept it is coming (indeed has arrived) and has it's place, but 2D isn't going away anytime yet. I like the idea of breaking the packages down rather than one large program with a l...

Re: HighDesign 2017.1 BETA 4

An improvement - dropping a dwg or a dxf onto either the dock icon or a blank sheet will open the import dialogue and open the file. Unfortunately, the 'Import' dialogue box still has the same greyed files issue. In addition, the vegetation layer of these survey files is not rendering, although list...

Re: HighDesign 2017.1 BETA 4

Sorry to say that this still doesn't work for me - dwg and dxf files are greyed out and not selectable from either the import or open menu. Dropping the file onto the program icon just opens a blank sheet.

Re: HD2017 doesn't recognise .dwg file

Open with... from the contextual menu in the Finder - same issue

or onto an open window - works!

dragging the file to the application icon - get this message
