Need Help? Problems - Solutions / Re: Blocks in .dxf files are empty
« Last post by Kent on September 18, 2017, 12:45:12 PM »
Problem solved - I did not have Layer 0 visible.

I have eighteen Layers, and twelve Blocks in the drawing.  On start-up, I normally hide all layers and then select the layers I need for the current session.  It is six months since I last used DoubleCAD, so my knowledge of it has got rusty.

I had forgotten that all Blocks are created in Layer 0, and the original cannot be moved from this layer  Because this layer was not visible, then when each Block was opened, nothing appeared in the window.  If only Layer 0 could be renamed to Layer "0 Blocks", I would probably have saved about three days spent trying to get my drawing to work.

I vaguely remember that there is a reason that the original Blocks can only exist in Layer 0 - something to do with being able to set their attributes By Layer when they are referenced into the drawing, I think.  But it was all so complex that I have forgotten the details now.

I see that Brian Carter includes the warning "Layer 0 should always be left visible, or blocks will instantly "disappear." in the TurboCAD/DoubleCAD Manual/ Inserting a block.  However, this is the last place I would think of looking when the error message "Block instance is empty or invisible and cannot be inserted." appears.  It is the Layer that is invisible, not the "Block instance", so it would be helpful if the message read "Block instance is empty, or its layer (Layer 0) is not visible, and therefore it cannot be inserted."

If a drawing is saved as a .dxf file, is it possible to get the Blocks to behave normally?  i.e. when EC (Edit Content) is clicked for a selected block, that the drawing of that block will be opened, rather than just an empty window..  If I try to insert a block, I get the error message "Block instance is empty or invisible and cannot be inserted.  Make sure the object is entered in the system registry."

XT also allows for thickness.
No, my version of XT 5.0 (build 30.2), doesn't shows any 3D properties for thickness. I remember in older versions it was possible, but in newer it looks that 3D is completely left out.
TurboCAD LTE Discussion / Drawing lines
« Last post by froneck on June 28, 2017, 05:28:39 AM »
I don't know why but both version 3 and 8 on an XP computer that's not connected to the net stopped allowing me to draw lines by entering the draw to location. Clicking will work. If I draw 2 circles I can use snap and click that location such as center to center, center to quadrant. Yet nothing will work if something like @1.000,1.000 is entered. However all was working fine a bit ago. Tried shutting the computer down a few times and reload TurboCad LTE but with the same results. Any suggestion on what I can do?
TurboCAD LTE Discussion / Re: text not showing up when i save to PDF
« Last post by jammacbeth on June 27, 2017, 04:51:06 AM »
when I chose the print to PDF option everything worked out ok. For some reason when I choose the save file as PDF option I have issues with text not showing up. This is normally how I do it and I mostly have success. This is the first time I chose the print to PDF option; perhaps I will stick with this method and see how it goes.

At any rate thank you. No need for any replies; unless of course you have some info to enlighten me. I do hate not knowing why something does or does not work.
TurboCAD LTE Discussion / text not showing up when i save to PDF
« Last post by jammacbeth on June 27, 2017, 04:22:22 AM »
 create the view; go to paper space and create the view port; select the created view and bam it shows up and looks fine. I save as a PDF and sometimes everything is fine and sometimes I have text that doesn't show up. Don't get it. Currently I have a drawing where I have an inserted image which I have drawn a few lines and some text on. When I save to PDF only one set of text is showing up. Any ideas or help?????
Need Help? Problems - Solutions / Turbocad LTE is deadly slow
« Last post by karimbardee on June 08, 2017, 01:47:14 PM »
Hi there,
Today I installed TC LTE pro 6 and it is very slowly, wait fr 5-10 seconds to refresh the window or open the menu, during this "absence " the cursor disappear.
on the same machine I have turbocad deluxe V20 2D/3D which is suppose to be newer, bigger, accordingly suppose to be heavier on the machine but it works fluently.
also I have TC LTE pro V3 and works fluently !
so the question is why the  newer and the older work without a problem while this one not ?
any idea or suggestion ?
General Announcements / Re: Remove unwanted icons from the Arc toolbar
« Last post by John R on May 26, 2017, 04:21:02 PM »
Open the "Tools / Customize" dialog. While that is open, you can drag the tools you don't need from their current location and drop them within the dialog or anywhere.

You should create a custom Workspace of your new layout. Overwrite the current name in the "Save In" list with a new name, then click on the "Save In" button. You'll now have a custom configuration saved. If you load other configurations, you can always return to your custom layout by selecting it in the "Load From" list and then clicking on the "Load From" button.
That should be it.

See the "Customizing the UI" links in the User Interface page of the Wiki.
See also New Popup Menu and New Popup Toolbar if you wish to create a new Menu or flyout toolbar.
General Announcements / Remove unwanted icons from the Arc toolbar
« Last post by jjl1210 on May 26, 2017, 05:59:59 AM »
I want to clean up my drawing toolbars because I will never use some of the icons so why have them.  Is there a way to remove most of the icons in the arc, line and circle toolbars?  Thanks
