  • Given that topics often overlap as well as evolve, it would be useful to follow the example of stackoverflow, where users can add up to five tags to categorize questions themselves.
  • Thank you, @CADMebel. Because blender behaved as I wanted, I had thought it was BricsCAD rather than an OS issue. That scroll inactive windows setting works brilliantly on Windows 10. On Windows 8, though, where I am testing V20, I find no equival…
  • For me, V20 on Windows, in either of those dialogs (eattedit or ddatte), once you type in a value, hitting Enter goes to the next tag in the list. The Tab key does not proceed to edit the next listed value, but rather moves around to different areas…
  • Assuming working with solids, one way I have been able to do this is by creating a region representing the section plane, then imprint the region onto the 3d solid, use xedges to extract the profile, then solidedit/Body/cLean the 3d solid if desired…
  • By "more standard functionality" you mean: > @Michael Mayer said: Or just keep a selection until a user drops it actively. Like any CAD does. And keep all steps while selecting part of the Undo Stack. Like any 3D App does. I miss a…
  • @Michael Mayer, you correctly answered @Anthony Apostolaros question. However, I was mistaken in my original post, thinking the frustrating highlight=autoselect behavior was occurring with quad or keyboard. It does not occur with keyed-in commands, …
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck said: Have you tried _DmDeformPoint? Sweet tool I was not aware of, thank you. I've tried it now and made this: _ _ I see from the online help there are several parameters, with lots of potential power, but little gu…
  • @Anthony de Carnys said: Well an 'unhide to last visible' would be good I wholeheartedly agree! How useful it would be to have (optional) independent undo/redo control over: 1. hide/unhide entities. (ctrl+alt+z) 2. view position and zoom.…
  • This is something I find myself very often wishing to do more generally, so I, too, am interested in an efficient solution. It is standard on other 3D modeling platforms, with scaling and rotation transformations, to be able to choose multiple cent…
  • I would use point filters, which are activated when entering coordinates in commands such as move or copy by typing a period (".") followed by "x", "y", or "z", or a pair thereof. For your example: m (Move) Select entities to move: [choose your …
  • The global scaling factor is called "Dim scale overall". You can find it under "Fit" properties, either via Drawing Explorer where you can edit the dimension style definition (see screenshot below), or via Properties where you can override the scale…
  • Thank you, both. This is a workable solution. Perhaps with the additional benefits of logfiles, which I hadn't known how to access, I may forget about wanting separate in-session command histories.
  • Hans, that is helpful to learn about dragging model views from the Content Browser. However, it only addresses one part—perhaps the easiest part—of what Steve is trying to do. I, too, have been trying to figure out how to make use of fields to refe…
  • Cool! Thank you for sharing, Knut. I had given up on batting-type linetypes for the reason Tom described, and was resorting to lengths of batting pasted in as blocks, scaled to adjust thickness, and tediously xclipped as needed.
  • That works! And helpful to know "Append Tool" for other unlisted commands. Thank you.
  • Fair enough. What I should have written was, Why can't I "pick first" with LayMCur? I can "pick first" with AI_MOLC, as I noted, so long as my preselection set contains only one element. I understand why both commands discard preselection sets of …
  • Why doesn't LayMCur work with PICKFIRST=1 for ON? It is nearly always the case that I have already selected some entity and decide to make its layer the current layer, either because I'm in the middle of working or simply because by selecting it fi…
  • After refclose, run attsync to display new attributes, or changes to attribute positions, definitions, etc.
  • I don't know of such an option for dmrotate. However, here is another way: If you select a solid (or any entity, or entities), grips will appear. Then left click to select any one of the grips. Now you are in *** STRETCH *** mode, and there are som…
  • I, too, have been routinely annoyed by undo affecting every action, and madly frustrated if I happen to scroll or zoom a bit during undoing, attempt to reverse, and get scolded: "There is nothing to redo." For me, what I'd prefer to be inconsequent…
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck I generally do work with _dmPushPull and other direct modeling commands, using _tk as needed (usually without troubles). I like the Tab key cycle options—that's a timesaver! Thank you. @RoatanBill Sorry I've no help with your…
  • (Using V18.2.20) I can use dmDistance3d, select the top and bottom faces of a rectangular solid, and then specify distance value to change the height. However, this seems to work only the first time I use dmDistance3d on any given pair of faces. …
  • I also ran into this issue and it was starting to drive me mad. Entering a period (hard stop) after the first word of any line of MText was triggering an indent and extra spacing that I couldn't seem to remove. My workaround was to enter all text wi…
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.
