This version is for Intel-based computers and is a FREE update for registered users.
Any word on the release of 2.0? :-)
Il software ha ancora carenze inaccettabili, ad esempio:
- lo snap tangente a cerchi e archi non funziona correttamente
- manca lo snap ai quadranti di cerchi e archi
- i punti significativi dei simboli sono insensibili agli snaps
... il manuale (lo stesso della versione precedente) è insufficiente e contiene indicazioni errate sui comandi, l'assistenza è pressoché inutile.
Da quando ho installato la nuova versione poi l'applicazione non apre più di default i suoi file dsn, ma tra le opzioni del menù (tasto destro del mouse) mi compare TextEdit o una misteriosa applicazione "HighDesignMDImporter". Ovviamente ho tentato le consuete procedure del Mac per impostare l'applicazione di default (apri con... ottieni informazioni...), ma senza esito positivo.
Il software appare ben realizzato ma quando si inizia ad utilizzarlo ci si rende conto che non è assolutamente adatto per un uso professionale.
Esistono altre applicazioni con caratteristiche ben superiori, ad un costo anche inferiore, come ViaCAD Pro o addirittura gratuite come DraftSght.
The software still has unacceptable lacks. For example:
- snap tangent to circles and arcs is not working properly
- lacks the snap to the quadrants of circles and arcs
- the significant points of the symbols are insensitive to the snaps
... manual (the same as the previous version) is insufficient and contains incorrect information on commands, online support is almost useless.
Since I installed the new version then the application does not open its files dsn as default, but among the options menu (right mouse button) I can choose TextEdit application or a mysterious "HighDesignMDImporter".
Of course I tried the usual procedures of the Mac to set the default application (open with ... get information ...), but without success.
The software could seem well done but when you start using it you realize that it is not suited for professional use. There are other applications with superior features, at a cost even lower, as ViaCAD Pro or even free as DraftSght.
The significant new features will be introduced in the next major upgrade 2.0. Anyway, we welcome your comments and thank you for your suggestions. We will consider them for the future.
As for the online support, I would remark that we received your support request yesterday, Sunday 18, at 4:50 pm, and your comment was posted here the same Sunday at 9:23 pm, less than 5 hours later. We provide free technical support, but nowhere do we state that it is a 24/7 service, especially because we have always focused on the quality of our customer service. A technical issue like file association requires extensive review and testing by an engineer in order to reproduce, identify and correct the problem and provide a helpful answer to you.
You guys haven't heard a peep from me for quite awhile, but still a loyal user!
Great to see this update and yeah, so far the improvements look like a winner!
Haven't tried them all, yet, though.
Great work on this application! Keep it going!!!
by the way… have not seen anything come through in the beta area for a while… v2 betas going to be available for the beta testers any time soon??
cheers from Oz
In addition, the layer control and line type controls at the bottom do not support Apple's mouse scroll ball, which is really irritating - can this be fixed please?
