I think you just need to turn your grips on.

Re: MicroSurvey CAD 2018

How do I customize what commands appear, with an entity selected, using the right mouse button? I know how to do it in previous versions of MsCAD, but everything I've tried in 2018 doesn't work. Commands that I want to add (and never should've been removed from the list when right clicking) - Match ...

Re: MicroSurvey CAD 2017

Cool!

I'll have to download and try it out.

I noticed that this is an odd year version (2017), hopefully it won't have major issues like past odd year versions have had (2013 & 2015)! ;)

Re: MSCAD 2015 Crashing

So, I think I figured out why MSCAD 2015 was being sluggish; I think it was due to having an attached image in the project (on a layer that is turned off). Once I removed that image, I can zoom/pan, select entities instantly without the 1-2 second delay. I do not have this issue in MSCAD 2014. Goin...

Re: DECIMAL SECONDS IN ANGLES & BEARINGS

It's not a bug, just an annoying little setting. If you want both your Cogo and Inquiry/List options to display Bearings you need to make sure your certain settings match: MicroSurvey Assistant>Set Program Defaults>General and then select the Bearings Radio button. Then do: MicroSurvey Assistant>Set...

Re: MSCAD 2015 Crashing

Hate to say this, but I have reverted back to MSCAD 2014 for the current project I'm working on. I started it with MSCAD 2014, thought it was finished, and then upgraded to MSCAD 2015. We had to go back and revisit the project, but when I do so, MSCAD 2015 runs really slow/sluggish. It takes about 1...

Re: MSCAD 2015 Crashing

Installed MSCAD 2015 32-bit this morning and I'm experiencing the same behaviour. Running sluggish, had to turn of hardware acceleration if I don't want crashes when I launch. Get occasional crashes when shutting down and random lock ups. However, it appears it locks up most frequently when I click ...

Re: MSCAD 2015 Crashing

I've noticed now over the past day or two, that MSCad is running really sluggish. Especially when trying to zoom and pan around in my drawing. There's about a 2 second delay. :( I think I'm going to take the time and install MSCAD 2015 32 bit to see if that alleviates the crashing and sluggish behav...

Open the Customize-Toolbar window via Tools or by rightclicking anywhere on a toolbar button and select Customize. Then click on one of the snap toolbar button, e.g. the one for endpoint. By default, under Command it is set to _END Change this to '_ENDPOINT Do the same for all the other snaps: '_MI...

It appears to be helping with my crashing, but it has done nothing for my 'Right Mouse Button' setting. i.e. I have my Right Mouse Button set to bring up the Short Cut Menu when an entity is selected, however, 6/7 times out of 10 it will repeat my last command instead of bringing up the Short Cut Me...

Re: MSCAD 2015 Crashing

I'm running MSCad2015 v15.0.3.1574 (64bit) on Windows 7 (64 bit). I've been thinking of switching to MSCad2015 (32bit) to see if that will reduce the number of crashes and other bugs that I've been experiencing. Of course that requires a call to my IT department so that they can uninstall and then i...

MSCAD 2015 Crashing

Is it just me, or does MSCAD2015 v15.0.3.1574 seem to crash much more frequently than previous versions of MSCAD? I think I'm sending an error report 2 out of every 3 days, sometimes more than one report a day! 99% of the time it crashes when I launch MSCAD using the quick start button in the task b...

Re: MSCAD 2013/2014 Observations

Eric there are things that can ease your pain. Say you select an object (I'm in 2015) need to change its layer. The layer properties changes to the selected entity layer. layers.jpg Click the down arrow and it is actually at the layer of your selected entity. If you want to change to another layer ...

Re: MSCAD 2013 Entity Property

Is there a way to have MSCAD 2013 open an Entity Property window when you double click on a string of text with grips on? I really enjoyed that functionality in MSCAD 2010. Any chance of reverting the Entity Property window to be similar to the way it is in MSCAD 2010? IMO, MSCAD 2010 window is eas...
