Re: Looking for PixelTools

Thanks Alfred. I appreciate your efforts. It seems as if programming Wild Tools is a task along the lines of the Myth of Sisyphus! Hoping the boulder finally rests on the top of the hill.

Looking for PixelTools

I have been running recently upgraded PowerCADD 9.1.11 with WildTools 10.1.3 v5. for about a month. Just today wanted to open the PixelTools Palette. The Palette appears, but is totally empty of tools- just an empty rectangle. The WT documentation says that PixelTools is contained within SketchTools...

Re: Acclimating myself to PowerCADD 9 from 6

I found that the general PowerCADD preferences have a Hide Toolbar option that takes effect after quitting and re-opening PowerCADD. Does anyone like the Toolbar and find it useful? It seems unnecessary to me. After using command-P to print, command-O to open something, etc. for upwards of 30++ year...

Acclimating myself to PowerCADD 9 from 6

As I am beginning to get familiar with PowerCADD 9, most procedures are intuitive and windows are easy to set up as I like them. I have two little puzzles concerning the general Toolbar, across the top of the drawing. Both the Show/Hide Toolbar Button and the Customize icon, (both of which are suppo...

Re: Setting up my Mac to allow large size pages in PowerCADD

Many years back I had my own HP wide format printer. Around the time it died its final death, I discovered that local print shops allowed me to email them large format size, (i.e. 24" x 36") pdf files. I was able to select these print size pages because, even though the wide format printer was somew...

Re: New Old Topic- moving from PowerCadd 6 to 9

First thanks to PatrickM and JohnC for their timely responses to my queries. A related issue has to do with evaluating the various processor options available for new and nearly new iMacs and Mac Minis. It seems that the single processor speed scores for the various available processors do not vary ...

Re: New Old Topic- moving from PowerCadd 6 to 9

In getting ready to upgrade both my 10 year old iMac and PowerCadd 6 to PowerCadd 9, I am asking all who know, what OS version PowerCadd 9.1.11 runs best under? I am currently running High Sierra, 10.13.6. Do I need to upgrade to a more current (non-Catalina) OS, or will PC 9.1.11 be OK with High Si...

New Old Topic- moving from PowerCadd 6 to 9

I suppose it is somewhat embarrassing, but I have continued to use PowerCADD 6 in a partitioned drive running Snow Leopard. In fact I was personally flamed by the late Bill Stanley for delaying upgrading through the 2007-09 Great Recession and afterwards! I am planning to purchase a new Mac Mini, wh...

Re: WildTools Developments

Rather than a Border Wall Tool, I'd like to see you work on a Corona Virus Vacuum Tool. Stay healthy!

Re: Update of PowerCADD for MacOS Catalina

I havent' tried any of these downgrade strategies, but this article from Small Dog Computers in Vermont gives a pretty comprehensive overlook of the available option strategies. The title is moving from Mojave to Catalina, but the reverse option is also covered. https://shop.smalldog.com/blog/2020/0...
