Title: Underlay tool...?
Post by: Rustiferion on November 04, 2018, 12:03:33 PM
Trying to insert a PDF file as an underlay - I have used the Underlay Manager to locate and load the file, I click okay and ... nothing. The Help file says "select the Underlay tool" but I'm darned if I can find it. The Toolbars dialogue just turns the Underlay Manager on and off, but no Underlay Tool. Is this a thing with TC Deluxe, that it's deactivated? The Manager button is greyed out, but it works when I click it.
TurboCAD 2017 Deluxe
Windows 10

You'll probably have to drag it out from the Commands page to the Underlay toolbar. From the looks of the Menu page (https://turbocaddoc.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/T2UG/pages/90570881/Menu+Structure) in Help, they never added the other half of the tool to the toolbar and nowhere to be found in the menus.

Thank you, but that screenshot is too small to see anything on. Where is the Commands menu?

Okay, I found it -( had to figure out where Windows hid their Magnifying Tool first...) Thank you, it works now. That was irritating...

Another way to magnify the image is to right-click on the small thumbnail and open the image in a New Tab. "Ctrl+✚" to zoom in on that page or "Ctrl+roll the mouse wheel".

From what I can see, Deluxe 2017 shouldn't have Underlay tools. They're not available in Deluxe 2016 or 2018. You got lucky.
