Snaps are not working at all
« 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

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)
