Re: Issues with FG 2008

G'day John That issue is not new and unfortunately still currently a real pain. The screen freezes if it goes off and only fix is a reboot. Never encountered any lost data, lines etc. I've a Nikon 821 and 362 and an Allegro MX. The very latest version of FG 9 still doesn't welcome a turn off screen ...

Re: how to get point number hint back in 2016

IPN shortcuts toggle the attributes as follows.
IPN - Point number
IPD - Description
IPE - elevation

Re other, sounds like you have Ortho turned ON.
Try an F8 toggle.

Re: what is the best way to scale a survey from meters to mm

I wouldn't rush into changing your units. personally I'd scale the architects to suit. One issue with scaling yours is where to scale from and then if it gets rescaled the origin is way up the creek. So doesn't answer your query. Just a comment Are you likely to be adding additional data? If so then...

Re: Lines start to skew when zooming in

try typing RE at Command Line.
I'd suggest its a screen issue where 2016 gets out of whack.
What sort of Video card do you have?
I still have some issues like this that are frustrating, but generally it works okay.

Regen seems to quickly snap it back into some mode of sensibility.

The latest update ( 8.1.15.2) comes with a very much valued enhancement that makes selecting points amongst linework easier now. Previously it was a pain to select only points when near linework, unless that option (points only) invoked in Settings. Much appreciated thanks. It also fixed up the issu...

I turned mine off, but then it behaved like a cornered dog.

Re: Chamfer and Filet quit working

Did you nut this out?
I assume you were trying to fillet with settings that wouldn't fit the line lengths.

Type CHA, then S and bring up settings and check the listed values.

I have all mine set to default zero. If needed I change at time of use.

Re: disassociated annotation HELP

probably way too late now but have you looked in Dimension styles and try setting up a new dimension style and change all leaders to match that style?
Could be a custom style that you are missing something on your device. But having said that I thought such styles were included within dwg?
