    Default FAQ Section

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Now that the forum has been running for a while, it's clear that there are certain topic/questions that come up over and over. I thought it might be a good idea to develop a FAQ forum where these recurring topics could be dealt with once and for all. Topics that spring to my mind are:

    "I've lost my toolbar" - dragged off screen
    "How do I draw a helix!!"
    "I can't read my text in the MTEXT window" - font smoothing

    Can anyone add to this list?

    How about some "standard practices"? (i.e. drawing 1 to 1 in model space, create blocks on layer 0, etc....)

    Done, but Tuesday !

    2.21mb. Basic input of some viewports, zooming, turning off
    layers in the current viewport etc. Only thing not obvious is when
    I double click to make a viewport active. Remember that each
    viewport is seperate/independant view of the model. Although
    if you edit the model viewports reflect the changes. Try to edit in
    modelspace plot in layouts.

    Tried to load it up on to cadfile site but it's too big. So I have put it on
    my site here
