    Draft layout text

    Thanks Snow! That's kind of a 1988 Autocad type of feature but as long as it works. Hopefully, this is something that gets updated in an upcoming version. On a side note this is the first time I've tried to use draft/layout on a project and not been totally frustrated. Haven't had a single crash. Fingers crossed!

    Draft layout text

    Thanks for the reply. Under "Tool options" there is no way to change the fonts. You have to either click on an existing piece of text or place a new one and it opens a separate "3D text editor" dialog box. But what I don't understand is why I have the dimension style and the 3D text editor both set to the same font but they come up with a different look. We don't want 3D text in the Draft layout module. I have to think this is a bug???

    Draft layout text

    It's been a while since I tried the draft module out. Since 9.1 just came out it seemed like a good time. So far it's actually working well. I'm trying to remember how the text works. The dimension text looks correct while the regular text is all outlined. It says they're the same font. What am I doing wrong? I obviously want it all to look like the dimension text. thanks!
  4. multi-copy transformations no longer show previews? never mind, restarted and it worked again.
  5. This might be the smartest update FormZ has ever done. Nice job! Can't wait to try it.

    New update 9.0.6

    The 2 forums I use on a regular basis are this and the Redshift forum. The big difference (besides what appears to be a much larger user base on Redshift) is the developer response over there is excellent. They chime in on everything. If there's an issue they acknowledge it and if it's not addressable immediately it will be resolved as quickly as they can. They're very open about it. I think there are only like 6 people working on that plugin so it's amazing to me how responsive they are. More to the point they seem to understand that not only are we users but by helping us we're helping them make their products better. There's a lot of threads that don't get responded to or get one initial response and then no additional comments, by Autodessys. In regards to the stability issue... For me V9 has been the best version since V6. I couldn't go back to it but I would love that speed and stability. V9 definitely has issues but it's heading in the right direction. Most of my issues are still interface related. The new Datasmith plugin is the first thing In a long time that gives me hope for the longevity of FormZ. What a great way to triple the userbase in short order. It tells me that Autodessys is finally starting to realize that's FormZ is NOT a great render solution (I know some of you use it and more power to you) but is a FANTASTIC modeler. My perfect scenario is it would become a modeling addon for something like Cinema4D and then you could legitimately have a one package production solution.

    facetted arc segments

    R2D2 - Thank you! I didn't realize that's what that command did. It would be nice if it was built into the basic Arc tools but that's a great way to go back and fix it.

    facetted arc segments

    I'm trying to clean up a large imported DWG. Sorting through all the linework and connecting or replacing as necessary. Two questions: An old question: When drawing a "facetted arc" how do you control the number of segments? The options panel is empty? In V6 you could input the number of "even" segments you want. There has to be something somewhere that controls this???? Yes, I know If it's set to smooth there are settings they are just not overly useful if you're building geometry to export. I need better control than "medium" of 50%. Also since I'm asking what does it mean when you have "show points" turned on and some of the lines have colored points and some have dark grey or black points? thanks

    New update 9.0.6

    The V8 interface was a mess! V9 seemed like a good idea, but they seemed to give up halfway through the design. The screenshot I attached shows what happens whenever I open something in full screen like a Steam game and leave Z open in the background, blank! Even resetting the workspace doesn't fix it. It's a restart. And don't get me started on the Inspector window popup, ridiculous!

    Phantom numbers

    V9 is better but still has a number of graphical issues. Interesting about Modo. I didn't know they were comparable?

    Phantom numbers

    I'm curious, is this both Windows and Mac or just Windows?
  14. archigraphica

    Phantom numbers

    Agreed. It just seems to be getting worse for no particular reason.

    Phantom numbers

    This seems to be a consistent problem I'm having. Random numbers, often after using a measure command, stay on the screen. They are independent of the file that is open. They stay on the screen in the same location until you close the program and reopen it. Any ideas? Windows 10, 2080ti, 456.71.
