Re: White elements in Black / White print mode

The text labels are on top of some other elements in the drawing, That is something what should be avoided in a drawing. However, please post an example screenshot. Thanks. It's a rather dense floor plan with a lot of text labels, and in a number of places there's no way to avoid placing text over ...

Re: Any way to delete multiple layers quickly?

I guess that's a no then. Correct. But there is a workaround .... Turn all Layer invisible, turn the unwanted layer back to visible, launch "Select All" below Menu/Select, delete, launch "Purge Unused Layer" below Menu/Layer ... ... ALL empty layers are gone. This method works, thanks. Only issue i...

Re: Any way to delete multiple layers quickly?

I guess that's a no then. This would be a great feature, along with being able to change the attributes of multiple layers at once.

Re: White elements in Black / White print mode

The text labels are on top of some other elements in the drawing, and the white fill is blocking out the elements behind to make the text more readable. Is there any other way to do this?

White elements in Black / White print mode

I have some white hatch fill areas that I'm using as background for text labels. When I switch to Black / White print mode all of these fill areas turn black. Is there any way to change this behavior?

Any way to delete multiple layers quickly?

I have some large floor plan files with 20-30 layers that I don't need and they're slowing down the program. Is there any way to get rid of the unwanted layers quickly? Deleting one by one will take forever. It would be great if I could just select multiple layers in the list and hit delete.

Re: Perpendicular Snap Not Working

Perpendicular means "perpendicular to the (often imaginary) line between the current position of the relative zero point (small red circle with cross) and the entity closest to the mouse cursor". When drawing lines, perpendicular means "perpendicular to the line that is being drawn" since the relat...

Perpendicular Snap Not Working

I'm getting some really bizarre results with perpendicular snap. Some of the time it works fine, but with certain lines it chooses an arbitrary and random angle as "perpendicular". See the picture: Screen Shot 2018-11-08 at 2.37.37 PM.png Lines A and B were already drawn, I dragged the ends to the "...
