Re: Clarification-the future of PowerCadd

I'm in the same boat. I have 2 macs that will be replaced this year—my laptop is 9 years old and showing its age badly and the screen on an old iMac doesn't work so I have 2 monitors attached. I've tried running PCADD in a virtual Mojave in Parallels running on Big Sur and it does work and the speed...

Re: WildTools Developments

Unfortunately I still can't use this as I depend on the join tool…

Re: PowerCadd’s Future?

Frank, I am counting the days until 65 as well, and I am hoping to continue working as long as I possibly can. PowerCadd has been part of my work since sometime in the mid-90s after using Claris Cadd for many years. I now use SketchUp as a companion program and spend 75% of my time in 3d. I worry fo...

Frank,

Bill Stanley died over 4 years ago so this only affects Todd.

Re: the most inconsequential question ever

Steve,

You are supposed to be able to click on the headers to change the sort parameters but this has not worked for some of us for quite a while. I know it is inconsequential but annoying as I have many templates that I use.

Re: PowerCADD Direction

The state of PCADD is unfortunately mostly unknown. Engineered Software has never been able to keep schedules and has NEVER been open with users. With WildTools it is without a doubt the single best 2D cad program ever made. This said, I know that in a year without a 64 bit solution I will have to k...

Re: Update of PowerCADD for MacOS Catalina

Malcom,

I spoke with Alfred about a month ago about this and set up a separate drive to test it. It works OK, but it seems Parallels is limited to a single monitor when emulating MacOS.

Cheers,

Alfred already knows I'm in the SketchUp user camp wanting better interaction. I wonder if we could do a poll of how many people use what 3D software along with PowerCADD?

Re: Calibrate to pdf scale

You can also use WildTools' Stretch Tool which saves you having to draw a line. You just click on the 2 points on the pdf, Tab into the Edit window and enter the known length. Derek, Yet another WT that I didn't know about. This is exactly the way it is done in SketchUp and it is so convenient. Tha...

Re: Acclimating myself to PowerCADD 9 from 6

I have used the Status palette for scale, nudge, and view scale for as long as I can remember. They're all in one small palette.
