Re: New PowerCADD screenshot!

Certainly we will have WildTools moved to 64 bit as well. Alfred Hopefully we won't go 64 bit when all the world will be 128 -and I will be 96 years old. :D I agree! One other thing that concerns me is that most software is moving to yearly subscriptions. As one approaches retirement, this concerns...

Re: Register Your Interest in a Forward Move

One seat. Been using Powercadd since 2000. A great resource for 2D drafting. Complimented with Sketchup. My office iMac is getting a bit old, resisting upgrading the hardware & software to keep using PC, I believe High Sierra 10.13.6 is as far as it goes. Would love to see PC evolving so I can purc...

Re: WildTools Pallet hiccup

Wouldn’t another option be to downgrade WT to the last shipping version? This situation is why I haven’t been using the beta versions of WT. I can live/work without disruption.

Re: Using WildTools selection tools

While I appreciate Alfred's efforts to continue to evolve and improve WT (way past my limited needs or ability to comprehend/stay abreast of the improvements), being productive is the most important thing to me, so I've generally always used the shipping (or updated) versions of WT, since I can't af...

Re: PowerCADD - SketchUp Interaction

I'm a long time PC and SU user, but my SU abilities are analogous to old (physical) chipboard study models, mainly for massing and to show allow clients to understand my 2d PC plans. My work flow and fees don't allow me to go overboard with SU. My main issue with SU is the ongoing cost of the curren...

Re: Frozen with spinning cursor

When I edit a dimension, I hit "command E", then "tab", which selects the text in the dimension edit window, then I type in the new text, which replaces the default text without "deleting" any text. If that doesn't work you might back up all your PC preferences, delete them, then see if it works wit...

Re: Well Duh moments

What cracks me up is when I receive a floor plan for a brand new building and the overall dimensions are to some small fraction like 64’-0 3/64”, like that’s going to happen.

Re: Well Duh moments

Another option might be to set the drawing scale to metric, draw the plan, then select all/cut/set the drawing scale to imperial/paste special at scale. Lots of ways to skin a cat. I do wish I could let the nudge box do math, though.

Re: AxiDraw pen plotter

That is kind of fun to watch (& listen to)! I don't even own any technical pens any more. What's next in the time machine: Leroy Lettering Guide or Addfeet Junior?
