General Discussion / Which software for a novice?
« Last post by Brewster on February 13, 2017, 03:26:02 PM »
Having had some drafting experience back in University (strictly manual) a LONG time ago, what SW would you recommend for doing simple furniture / garden structure design? I have had DoubleCAD XT v3.1 for a long time but have not used it much. I asked this question many years ago but don't recall the reply. I see a free download but it looks like they want my name, rank, serial# & blood type to get it!

I like to do an overall sketch then front, top, right views of the object.

TurboCAD LTE Discussion / Re: Error message when I try to save drawings
« Last post by thebrian on December 05, 2016, 06:36:03 AM »
hmm, with the application closed try right-clicking on the application icon and choosing Run as administrator.

What version of windows are you using? are you running on a network or single machine?

TurboCAD LTE Discussion / Error message when I try to save drawings
« Last post by Carl on December 02, 2016, 08:35:16 PM »
This past week, when I attempted saving a drawing, I got an error message, "You do not have permission to save in this location. Contact administrator to obtain permission." Has anyone else run into this. I checked my Microsoft account, and it says I am the administrator, so why would I receive such an error message?

DoubleCAD XT Discussion / Re: Text formatting changed and can't correct

This sounds like you might be saving and opening the file as a DWG.

If not:

try the following:

Maybe something happened with the configuration settings. You can try this:
1st close DoubleCAD
2nd Go to C: \ Users \ <YourUserName> \ AppData \ Roaming \ IMSIDesign \ DoubleCAD \ 5 \ XT \ Profiles
3rd From the Profiles folder, delete the "Built-in" folder entirely
4th Restart DoubleCAD (the Built-in will automatically be rebuilt)

You can just copy the install file over to the new computer and install there using the same serial number and activation code.

I am working on a Microwave drawing found in Mastering TurboCAD  LTE & LTE Pro By Kevin Doucette. Items 34 and 35, page 91, mention using the single parallel line tool to offset the sides of a double line rectangle. I successfully offset top, left and bottom sides, but I cannot offset the right side. Is there another way to offset the line? I hope someone has this training disk (2013), as it would require a lot of typing on my part to explain the problem. Also, I inserted text in the twelve circles, but, for some reason, the text disappears. Thank you for any help I can get on this. Oh, I have LTE Pro, version 9.

DoubleCAD XT Discussion / Text formatting changed and can't correct
« Last post by rdburghard on November 13, 2016, 12:52:51 PM »
Granted, I am completely new to DoubleCad XT, but I've been creating a schematic drawing and using Arial as my text font.  It was working fine until today and I don't know if i changed some default or what.  Half of my text has changed to a txt.shx form.  I can edit the text and change it to Arial or another font, but when I exit the drawing after saving and load it again, the changes don't take.  It is back to the txt.shx again.  Some of the text is still OK.  However, even some numbers I saved in a block picture of an I.C. have changed.  What gives?  I can't get it to bring back the correct font any more.  I tried entering a new text line in New Times Roman and it worked once, but any of the existing text I try and correct, the changes don't stay.  Even If I try and enter them new, it won't change.  I'm wondering if it has to do with 'multi-line text' formatting, because the one time I had a line work, it was a single name.  The ones that have changed do have multiple lines.  How can I get them all to change back to Ariel like I want?

TurboCAD LTE Discussion / Re: Snapping to center of a given circle.

Thanks, John R. I was confused at seeing only an arc with center snap. I now know that is a circle center snap as well.
