Need Help? Problems - Solutions / CAN'T SCALE WHEN USING DECIMAL PLACE
« Last post by Devine1 on May 20, 2020, 01:36:42 AM »
Hi
 
See original post here https://forums.doublecad.com/index.php?topic=2808.0

I can't seem to use decimal places when scaling objects. Whole numbers = no problem.

Bug reporting / POSSIBLE BUG RELATED TO WINDOWS 10
« Last post by Devine1 on March 03, 2020, 07:50:46 PM »
Hi

I've been pulling my hair out when trying to resize bounding boxes and the problem seems to only have started since installing Windows 10.

Previously I would select whatever line / block - click on one of the blue handles of the bounding box - hit TAB on my keyboard to access "Scale X" (enter the number I need) then TAB into "Scale Y" (enter the number I need) and press ENTER. The bounding box would then be resized correctly as required.

NOW I select whatever line / block etc - click on one of the blue handles of the bounding box - hit TAB on my keyboard to access "Scale X" - then problems start
- If I use whole numbers (i.e. resize up from 1 to 2, 3 4 etc) no problem. The "Scale Y" automatically follows the "Scale X" entry that I entered and the selected item resizes correctly.
- HOWEVER if I want to resize down (i.e. using decimal places anything less than 0. It appears that decimal places greater than 1 still work normally, so the problem appears to be limited to decimal places less than 0)
- General note - my keyboard setup since installing Windows 10 confuses the symbols "." & "," (period point & comma). So I am constantly using them interchangeably until the software in use gives me the symbol I need.
- SO if I enter 0.5 OR 0,5 into "Scale X" the same thing happens. A little black rectangle opens directly above the "Scale X" wherein I enter the required entry.
- When hitting TAB to move into "Scale Y" the entered number in "Scale X" does not change to the decimal number I entered.
- Pressing ENTER at this point derives an incorrect resize result.
- HOWEVER I noticed that when I enter the decimal place into the black rectangle that appears above the "Scale X" area and press TAB, it offers me another (random unrelated) number BUT the "Scale X" box in the bottom left corner of the screen has correctly received my entry. So if I move forward and enter the required number in "Scale Y" and confirm the same in the bottom left hand corner THEN the item resizes correctly when pressing ENTER.

TurboCAD LTE Discussion / Savings layouts
« Last post by jammacbeth on February 04, 2020, 05:24:25 AM »
I've tried to create new layouts with particular layers in order to save them for quick access to print additional copies. It seems it works for a bit but eventually when i go back to those layouts the layer that i originally used for that layout does not show up.

Any ideas?

Also, still having a major issue with multiline text not being able to edit....the cursor just blinks but won't move. Eventually corrects itself but this is an ongoing annoyance.

I've been trying to put text on a curved line. I found an old post going back to 2011, and can get as far as Exploding the text, but from there I'm stuck. Can anyone help me with this?

Need Help? Problems - Solutions / "DOUBLE LINE" & "MULTILINE" ERROR
« Last post by Devine1 on May 14, 2018, 05:17:28 AM »
Hi
I've noticed for a while now that the "Double Line" and "Multiline" tools have a strange error in that they do not snap perfectly and if one holds the 'shift' key, the lines don't draw perfectly horizontally or vertically. EXAMPLE:- If I try draw a "Double Line" over an existing single "Line" by snapping to endpoints, the "Double Line" is never perfectly parallel to the single "Line". It can be a little longer or shorter than the single line AND it's angle will not be identical. It appears to be snapping to multiples of a set length and/or angle - almost as if grid snap is active (which it's not). If I enter my own set length and angle then it draws perfectly. The single "Line" tool works beautifully. Problem only exists with "Double Line" and "Multiline". Any fixes / suggestions?

DoubleCAD XT Discussion / Toggle into screen versions
« Last post by GiulioT on December 20, 2017, 07:16:00 AM »
My question is: How do I switch from the old display version, to the latest XT5 release display mode?

I do explain my problem: It happened to me that having DoubleCad already installed on my desktop PC, in the display mode of the new version of XT5, when installing DoubleCad on my lap top, I made a mistake choosing the ancient display version on the proper window that appear one time only in opening. Now I would like to know how to move from one display mode to another, to unify my way of working, that now is a little bit hard
Many thanks

General Discussion / Multi text; issues with editing
« Last post by jammacbeth on October 23, 2017, 04:54:12 AM »
I consistently have issues with multi text editing; my cursor will just stay in one place and blink but I cannot move it to edit. Perhaps the issue has something to do with conversion of turbo cad into DWG files. We have Turbo Cad Lite Pro 6.0; we consistently have to convert our drawings into DWG for interoffice purposes. It seems that my text is always converted into Multi text when I save as DWG file and then when I re-open in Turbo Cad I always have this problem with editing the text. ITS MADDENING! Anyone able to help?

Thank you.
