Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

I would definitely agree not to get into 3D. I have not found any application that is as elegant to use at 2D CAD, and I would say the main objective should be to get it running on the latest OS, not to expand its features. There are a few issues that have been noted which need to be addressed, but ...

Re: Zooming & scrolling

Hi all, I was hoping I might get a bit more traction from my original post from some long-time PC users. I'm still wondering if there might be a way to make the "indexing" finer so that I could do more precise zooming? I've set the acceleration to zero, since I find that I more often need precise zo...

Re: transparent background in PDF

Can you clarify a bit what you mean Steve?

I save pdf's all the time from PowerCADD (Print > Save as PDF) and they all have transparent backgrounds. They work great to drop into a Keynote presentation...

Re: PowerCADD new document window at launch

I have one other minor issue related to opening existing files. I tend to use the same method as David for finding a recent PC file, however rather than going to the File Menu, with many other applications (not all though) I can right click the application icon in the dock to see recently opened fil...

Zooming & scrolling

Every once in a while I like to review my PowerCADD settings to see if I really have them set most efficiently. One of the things I would like to customize better is the way I use the mouse wheel. I have it set for zooming when I use the wheel and the Zoomer action all works quite well. A couple of ...

Blossom Palette

You need to check "Blossom" under Preferences > Loader. The Blossom Palette should then show up under the Window pull-down menu.

By the way, the Cloud Tool is a standard tool in in WildTools — I wasn't sure if you have WildTools?

Stationary

Does anyone know how to have the stationery sort in a logical order (maybe alphabetical?) when you open a new document? No matter how I name the stationery files in the Stationery folder, they appear somewhat randomly.

Thanks...

Recent Items List

This is not really a very serious issue, but I'm wondering why PowerCADD is the only application that doesn't update the list of recently opened files when I right click the icon in the dock? Once in PowerCADD, the Open Recent list in the pull-down File menu seems to update correctly.

PowerCADD Documentation

The pdf documentation manuals that are available from the help menu are very useful, but they would be infinitely better with hyperlinks. The PowerCADD one is very difficult to use because the table of contents and index have been removed! Could these at least be returned to the document so that I c...
