TurboCAD LTE Discussion / Re: Snapping to center of a given circle.
« Last post by John R on November 03, 2016, 07:45:18 PM »
Make sure "Modes / Snaps / Center" is active, then click on the Circle perimeter. The Polygon tool will ask if you want the polygon "Inscribed" or "Circumscribed" to the Circle (inside or outside), then it will snap to the center of the circle. To finish the polygon, you could use a hotkey when you're over the circle; "Alt+Q" to snap to a Quadrant, "Alt+N" to snap to any near point on the circle or enter an Angle & Radius.

I purchased a training disk from TurboCAD which is helpful in learning the program.
TurboCAD LTE Discussion / Snapping to center of a given circle.
« Last post by Carl on November 03, 2016, 04:32:25 PM »
I recently received a TurboCAD LTE Pro training disk. One exercise is to insert a regular octagon into a circle; the center of the octagon is supposed to snap to the center of the circle. I can't find a snap tool for snapping to the center of a circle, so please tell me how this is done. Also, the octagon doesn't fit exactly inside the circle when properly positioned (by other means)---is this a fluke of TurboCAD, or am I possibly doing something wrong?

Due to spilling coffee on my keyboard, I have been using my wife's computer and installed Lte on it. I now have a new computer. How do I go about installing the program on it. My original was an internet download.
Bug reporting / Snaps are not working at all
« Last post by mlabarre58 on October 28, 2016, 06:17:04 AM »
Using DoubleCAD XT 5.0 32-bit Build 30.2 - Windows 7, Build 7601

Had not used the program for a while, and now I cannot get "Snaps" to work at all.

I have toggled the ""SNAP" button at bottom left of screen with no affect.
I can view the drawing aids menu by right clicking on the "snap" button, and try to select "intersection" to draw a new line starting at the intersection of two other lines - no highlight of the intersection, and the line does not "snap" to the intersection.

Have tried from tool bar, and doesn't work either.
I can see the "int" command in the command line, and the "intersection" button is highlighted in tools, but no snap

I can't rule out that I may have inadvertently changed something, but have no idea what that something might be.

Please help. I find a CAD system more or less useless if you can't snap

Hello all,

I purchased TurboCAD LTE 7 and I am having trouble figuring out how to turn off the watermark (advertisement) on pages I print. any I ideas??

Thanks in advance.

Right click on mouse. mmmm I think that is a setting but can check.

OK, after drawing a line, right click to get a right click window, select Finish.

EDIT. Thinking further, it has me thinking about it too. Will get back.

I correct #5. I was able to remove from a selection by shift+clicking  :D  But then I noticed a new Issue; when I select a block, the explode icon becomes available and I can explode the block. After working for a while on other stuff, if I select another block, the explode icon remains grayed out (unavailable), as if it had lost the ability to explode other blocks. I have to save, close the drawing and open it again for the command to become available once more.

thanks!  :D
TurboCAD LTE Discussion / Just switched to Turbocad Lte8, some suggestions

Hi guys,

I just switched to Turbocad and I must say I'm very impressed by how intuitive it is to get adapted to it. However, there are some minor things that are very common when working with keyboard commands(Autocad-like) that if improved would make a universe of difference for anyone coming from another software.
1. Make the snaps display bigger and in another color (i.e. yellow). I'm having a hard time knowing if it's snapping or not.
2. The mirror command should be a command on its own, not depend on the copy command first. That's a bit confusing
3. The mirror command should offer the option to erase or keep the original lines being mirrored before finishing. I mirrored something on the same space  symmetrically and ended up with two mirrored copies one on top of the other.
4. Has to do with #4. The posibility of selecting (previous) with P whenever you run a command after a selection is a must. i.e. After doing the mirror and ending up with the 2 copies all messed up, I should be able to run E (erase) then P (previous) so that it would remove the previous selection, leaving only the mirrored copy.
5. The possibility to remove items from a selection by entering R (remove). In the manual it says that by clicking items with shift after a selection is done will remove them, but it doesn't work.
6.The ability to use Right Click as enter. I just discovered it's done with the space bar, but for people like me, that run most of the commands from the command bar, using right click really speeds the drawing process up.

This sort of functionality is already working in the the different Intellicad versions and in Draftsight. It would be great if you guys can Implement it as well. It would make Turbocad my #1 CAD application.
