Re: Date Stamp Tool text box

How about this: A new data-type in the program: Non-wrapping text.

A text object that stays one line high no matter what.

Many situations this would come in handy. Then the date stamp object could be text of this type and you would not have that issue.

Re: Happy to see a new PowerCADD forum

Greg -- Check out Alfred's latest WildTools. We made Shrubs and Trees in elevation tools (still need tweaking but Alfred converts feedback to inspiration!) Glad you found this.

Re: Find and Replace?

Find and Replace?

Does anyone know the secret to using the Find and Replace dialog to replace commas in an imported text file with tabs? I could not find the method to put a tab in the dialog that worked. :/

Re: the most inconsequential question ever

If I knew what criteria it is using for the sort I would be happy to rename/whatever the files accordingly.

Expected behavior with Nudge

Does anyone else agree that when using repeated Nudge commands,
when the selected object(s) go offscreen,
the screen should automatically scroll to continuously reveal the selected objects?

Like, the way Excel does?

Re: You can run Powercadd under Catalina

This reminds me of the cowboy joke where the cowboy meets his first lesbian. He tells his friend later, "gol-dang you know what? It turns out I've been a lesbian my whole life."

Re: 64 Bit PowerCADD - Coordinate System changes

Just wondering if you think there's any chance your perceived productivity advantage is related to the *lack* of modelspace/paperspace overhead?
