ribbon interface customization

Cool, glad to know it will be coming. Would that be a minor revision, or a major revision... i.e. 8.xx something or 9.xx?

ribbon interface customization

I would like to customize the ribbon interface. Not just re-arrange and turn on/off stuff, but program additional items for electrical symbol and template insertion. Have not looked too hard yet, but is there a text file that controls the ribbon interface, or is it encoded some other way, somewhere ...

There's a couple ways to go about this. As slit_ok suggested, you could use 3DFACE to put surfaces on the sides. Another way would be to change the thickness of the 2D rectangle, which would produce surfaces on the sides leaving the top and bottom open. You could then cover the top and bottom with 3...

turn off PROXYNOTICE in ACAD. Doesn't get rid of the offending entities, but you won't be notified about them.

Custom Menu Bitmaps in ICAD 8.0

You can specify a location specifically for .BMP files used in custom menus. Unfortunately, your custom menu source file needs to be loaded from the same location where your bitmaps reside.

Look for this to change in an upcoming maintenance release.

LISPPATH in ICAD 8.0

There is a new configuration item where you can specify the location of custom LISP programs. Unfortunately it doesn't work. Until the next maintenance release, you'll have to specify such a location somewhere else. Personally I use the Help section; just add an item.

I forgot to mention, if I add my LISP folder location spec. under "Support Paths - Help" area, my autoload functionality has no problems. That's why I ask, what is the use of having a LISP section, if it doesn't work fully? It works if I use APPLOAD, or if I issue direct loading calls like (load "CL...

CMS 8.0 LISP path spec item

I see there is now a LISP item in the Paths/Files tab on the configuration dialog. For some reason it does not do what I expected, that is, add my specified LISP folder location to the Support Paths. It seems to halfway work. I say halfway because I have an autoload.lsp routine that is embedded in i...

My problem was solved by using a Windows driver, because it had no spaces, quotes, or other special characters in the form names.

I have just installed a fresh 8.0 Premium, and it does not try to start a new ICAD session for each drawing I double-click in Windows Explorer. You must have a .DWG registration issue of some sort. See if it helps to right-click a .DWG and select "Open with" and "Choose Default Program." Select your...

I have noticed similar behavior, not just limited to PDF plotting, but for other printers on my network. Changing devices, paper sizes, or orientation seems to be a little buggy. I prefer to do command-line based plotting using SCRIPTs. Start plot using the typed command -PLOT (not PLOT, but -PLOT)....

Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this behaves the same way in ACAD. It is determined by the units the block was saved in. I always write "Unitless" blocks, am not a fan of letting the system decide whether I meant inches or millimeters when I'm drawing. Units are units, ...

Currently, the best you can do without implementing the VB support, which is only available in the Professional version or higher, is to re-code the "macro" information into a Toolbar based menu structure. Standard Menu structures in filetypes *.mnu, *.mns, and *.icm are standard text files. Open th...

making PDFs

for what it's worth, I suggest installing a PDF printer emulator (for example PDF995), then using it as you would any other Windows system printer.

I've found this method to be easier to control the lineweights and other variables involved in getting a good quality PDF.
