  • Dear All, the VL BlackBoard storage is completely reworked - no problems with "doubles as string" anymore And as a nice side-effect : (vl-bb-ref) is ~30% faster now ... but was faster by factor 4 anyway, compared to recent AutoCAD many greetin…
  • Dear Roy, Dear All, besides that the problem with precision (max. 15 digits) of doubles, becoming more & more unprecise with each numerical operation, there is indeed a valid point from Roy's "point #3", so I will improve our BlackBoard - not u…
  • Dear All, the problem with precision for "double" is a generic problem - the 14th and 15th digits are unreliable in generally, also in AutoCAD :-) AutoCAD stores the doubles as doubles, so no problem there with double -> string -> double con…
  • Dear, yes, there are actually some glitches in BLADE with non-ASCII characters, in different operations; mainly caused by Scintilla's internal UTF8 character encoding, which causes some trouble in our Unicode environment. Majority of those proble…
  • Dear All, I'm working on a comprehensive BLADE documentation as part of the "Lisp Developer Support Package" (as CHM, HTML, PDF doc) ... I hope to have it end of February, and will post a notice here then. many greetings !
  • Dear Peter, I would assume, that compression level has no impact ... as unzipping internally is based on well-proven standard libraries, which does the decompression. many greetings !
  • "Another thing I have noticed with V19 is that it cannot open existing drawings but V18 has no issues." Did you install the (fixed + updated) V19.1.06-2 installer ? The initial V19.1.06-1 installer had a defect related to AEC Civil objects ...
  • "because V19 crashes upon opening those drawings" maybe, try V19 installation with the updated installer V19.1.06-2 ... the initial "06-1" installer had a defect, not properly registering the AEC Civil custom object enablers ... in virtually all r…
  • Dear Alf, "VLA-ADD" that part was broken here in the forum display ... (vla-add3dPoly) should indeed work, it is implemented for Linux/Mac ... So maybe you can open a support request, and also add your (simplified) Lisp code there, so that we ca…
  • Dear Dale, the .zip archieve does not contain the "DOSlib19*.brx" files ... and many thanks !!
  • Dear Kerry (and all others), yes, this glitch has now been fixed internally ... so to come with an update; but there is also a nice workaround : Drag & Drop of selected text into "Lisp Console" also works, and no such issue here many greeti…
  • The dwl and dwl2 files are used by AutoCAD + BricsCAD to ensure "file locking", in multi-user environment ... see inside the file(s), with notepad.exe, just plain text files containing informations on who & where a dwg file is opened, to preven…
  • Also, please keep in mind, that BricsCAD (and therefore all the integrated APIs) use Unicode strings ... hence, your wxWidgets build must be Unicode, and all string literals should use the _T("....") notation (for non-WX code), resp. wxT("....") for…
  • The string returned is a class-string : be it wxString, AcString, CString etc.; but all the "printf" formatting options extect a string pointer, and not all classes do provide an automatic conversion/casting .... So the most correct solution for w…
  • you can : a) export the current profile (see ProfileManager application in BricsCAD), and import that on target machine b) if you are familiar with regedit.exe, you can also export HKCU/Software/Bricsys/BricsCAD, and import that created file on ta…
  • For VBA : you need to explicitly install the VBA runtime, it is in the BricsCAd installation folder, under ./VBA ... a single installer, installing both x86 + x64 runtimes for VBA. FAS files can not be loaded, it is a specifically encrypted Lisp f…
  • Dear, you might query the database (not the document), for its filename ... if it is a .dwt, then it is in 99% an unsaved drawing, becuase saved database/document usually has .dwg filename ... but this might fail, if the database is actively saved…
  • You should open with kForWrite ! :-) Because you modify your entity ... "if (acdbOpenAcDbEntity(pEnt, id, AcDb::kForRead) != Acad::eOk) ...." otherwise, the required "assertWriteEnabled()" in your void MyEntity::addPoint(const AcGePoint3d& p…
  • From the video, I see you have a dedicated ADDPOINT command ? That should indeed trigger a redraw of your entity ... when modifying the custom entity from within a virtual function callback (grip points handling), then it becomes more complicate. …
  • So my question would be : from what code part (in which context) do you call your MyEntity::addPoint() function ?
  • Indeed, seems incorrect - the pgp file should always contain untranslated, English names on the right side (left side can be translated) ... best to send us a support request, so it can be fixed and tracked to our database. many greetings !
  • Dear Peter, please see the (trans) function - it can transform a point / vector to / from WCS + UCS ... should work then...
  • You will need to have your own (custom) entity a) to be opened in kForWrite b) call assertWriteEnabled() - this ensures that undo data are written, and the display system also takes notice, that your entity had been modified, and in next idle sta…
  • Dear Donatas, indeed, as you described, it seems to be the case that older dwg format versions trigger a problem here (for both systems); it might be the best option to save your template files as DWG 2010 or 2013 versions (or simply save the "dr…
  • Dear Ashley, please look into your BricsCAD installation folder - there you will see the "UserDataCache" and its sub-folders, usually like that : /BricsCAD V18 x64/UserDataCache/Support/en_US/ there you should find the "default.cui" - this file c…
  • Dear, indeed, sounds a bit strange ... can you open a SupportRequest, add your dwt/dwg file there and a bit Lisp code so that we can try to reproduce (and fix) the issue ? many thanks in advance & many greetings !
  • Please copy the default.cui from BricsCAD installation folder (under UserDataCache) to your user folder (that folder as shown in the message); seemingly, the default.cui file became corrupted :-( hope this help ?
  • Hallo, yes, that's correct so far ... those "LoadCtrl" flags are documented in the ARX docs ... BricsCAD/BRX is compatible, and works identically with the flags. 1 = on-proxy-detection 2 = on-startup 4 = on-command are the important ones, can b…
  • Dear Peter, yes, I can reproduce the problem :-( Going to fix that ... Besides, please have a close look at v2.7 dialog - it now has an option "-dialog" to enforce the dialog version, when a valid lisp/prj/prv file is specified; this allows back…
  • Dear Peter, most likely, DEScoder does not get a correct path - if the backslash is not written as double-backslash :-) A backslash as you enter in any Windows application, or prompt, needs to be "escaped" when such a backslash is inside the strin…
Origami
Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
