Re: PDFs revisited

that's true but not an issue in my workflow, and they import fine in Ai PS etc. so you can always "flatten" them with more control over compression/quality rates... but I reckon this is a double step workflow and HD should be able to export perfect PDFs directly! We are now asked to send PDF drawing...

Re: PDFs revisited

Hi Matthew,

I've not a great need for PDF prints but I noticed I get better results via Print => Save as PDF (this way OSX take care of the PDF creation and not HD)

cheers,
Alessandro

Re: Any news?

wait... Silo3D and HighDesign left out in the cold, SketchUp sold to Trimble...
what's this, a sort of Autodesk secret plan or it's just me falling in love with the wrong apps?

Re: Beta of HD

@Franco Giorgi: you know what, I find that any other CAD is made for US way of building (and drafting) which is way different from ours; I'm not saying you can't use alternative CAD apps but I'm afraid you won't find any better solution than the "old" and "un-updated" HD, specially for renovation...

how to reset height quote reference (0.00)?

Hi fellow HD'ers... I think the title says it all... I have accidentally marked a wrong "first point" reference (0.00) for height measurements and now I'm not able to change it or revert to the previous state (tried undo but didn't work) Manual didn't help neither (it shows how to move a point but n...

Re: trimming ellipses

thanks Matthew! 1/4 elliptical arcs + manual edit is a bit tricky (to say the least!) but I'm afraid it's the only way to do it in HD at the moment. if only you could adjust the angles dragging the ending points on the drawing like for circular arcs... I guess I'll have to do a lot of trial and erro...

trimming ellipses

is it possible? I see it works with circles but it doesn't seem to work with ellipses... how can you draw elliptic arches (arcs?) then? hopefully not with bezier curves...

thanks in advance,

Re: grouping sheets?

I do find this happens on occasion for me as well. It does not happen every time i switch between spaces, but frequently enough that i have become quite aware of it. While it is a minor inconvenience, i find that clicking on the desktop and then back on the HD window brings the palettes back. it ha...
