I have some issues that need resolving.

1. When re-uploading a job that has has been previously downloaded with linework, I get no descriptions or linework on my points?

2. Recently we did a job with 1500 pts, as the job approached 900 pts
the machine started to get slower and slower. Dumping old jobs out of
the card didn't help. Near the end it got unusably slow so I tried to copy over 2 pts to start another job, it took a half hour, very frustrating!!

3. When rotating pts in a job with straight and curvy line work, the curvy
linework gets left behind after the rotate?

We are running Windows XP, and the latest versions of Basic Cad 2004 and Fieldgenius XP

1) When you create a FieldGenius project with MSCAD Basic the points will have the same descriptions as your points database. Check it in the desktop to make sure they have descriptions.

Also only lines that are in the database (smart lines) will be uploaded to FieldGenius XG. This has changed for FG 2004, all lines/arcs/polylines are uploaded now has a DXF file.

2) What device are you using? It sounds like your device was running out of RAM. Performance has been improved in FieldGenius 2004 and I suggest you install this version.

3) Yes in FieldGenius XG curvy lines are not rotated with the points. This has been fixed in FG 2004.
