Re: Tangential

Thank you JJ. That works a treat also... such a simple solution that I feel a little embarrassed to have had a brain f@rt. :oops:

Re: Tangential

Thanks Andrew. It's just that the tangential tool is available when in angular line mode. That seems to have messed me up. Also, sometimes I see "tangential" as a snap point sometimes - when, I can't seem to replicate. So, for me to make a tangential angular line to a circle, I first create the circ...

Re: Tangential

Thanks. But I still think there is a bug. I want to draw a line tangential to a circle. Say, 45deg. I draw the circle then choose the angular line (choose middle) and try and make it tangential to that circle - complete fail. :?:

Tangential

Using 3.22.0.5 - can someone give me a lesson on using the Tangential tool? I just seem to fall flat on my face when attempting to use it.

Re: How do I close a loop?

Ah!!!!! I can see clearly now! e_surprised It was that last ESC that got me. Thanks for that. I had expected that since the 2 segments intersected that by selecting the second entity that the loop would have been closed and the hatch created as soon as it was selected. I'll adjust my help page to in...

Re: How do I close a loop?

Forgive me.... but this just isn't working for me. I even tried with a circle, infinite line thru center. I can create the hatch if I break the ellipse and remove the left segment, but can't fill the right section with the hatch from segments. I know I'm missing something here... or I'm naturally th...

Re: Layer selection confusion

Many, many thanks for your understanding. I shall copy the procedures into the bugtracker. I'll also raise a couple UI suggestions shortly (good/constructive of course :lol: ). The glaring reason why I mentioned this "inconsistency" is because weird artifacts (entities) began appearing "randomly". N...

Layer selection confusion

Hi. This is a layers confusion.. I have layers: 0 v Layer 1 Layer 1a v Layer 2 Layer 2a I select (highlight) "Layer 1a" add an entity on "Layer 1a" I select (highlight) "Layer 2a" add an entity on "Layer 2a" I then collapse "Layer 2" and then collapse "Layer1" - in that order: 0 > Layer 1 > Layer 2 ...

Re: Extension lines

You doubt that? I said clearly - make any project with a lot of dimension lines and see how it looks, no one wants to look at this, You cant present it formally Perhaps you should make a separate thread in the suggestions? If it is doable in the dxf/dwg specification then perhaps it might be implem...

Re: Focus remains on command line after competed command.

Edit: I suppose I have this wrong - what I mean to ask: is there an option to terminate command input after a command has been completed? Hit ESC on the keyboard ... Yes. I think I was trying to be lazy. It was during a move/copy that I really notice this after the dialog pops up (move or copy or c...

Re: Duplicate offset library part

Use negative numbers to move left(X) or down (Y) and prefix with @ to make it relative. Leaving the @ off makes the coordinate absolute. So @-10,-5 would reference 10 units left and 5 units down. -10,-5 would be absolute point of 10 left and 5 down from the red + absolute 0 point on the drawing. @10...

Focus remains on command line after competed command.

Hi. If I use the command line to specify a command or type a coordinate, then once the command is complete the command line still has focus. Move/Copy command is where I noticed this. After I type in a new location then the dialog appears and I complete the move/copy, the command line still has focu...
