INFO CLOUD

The red Info Cloud shown in the attached was created in a PDF editor by simply selecting the tool and dragging a rectangle around the object to create the cloud. TurboCad is it possible for you to duplicate that to replace the clunky tool you have available now.

There's so much to learn and not much time left to learn it.

Revision Cloud.  Yeah, I'd agree with that Wish List item.  "Clunky" is pretty much the appropriate term for TurboCAD's Revision Cloud Tool.

I would say that the Revision Cloud tool should have the option of using one of the other tools to draw it-- such as Polyline, Polygon, Rectangle, Circle, Ellipse, etc.; or the other way around-- have a "Revision Cloud" option available when using those tools.
   Something along those lines...

I seem to remember a long time ago that someone suggested creating a line style to form revision clouds.
I tried it, it works well.

Definitely a funky tool. However if you raise the number of segments in the inspector bar it works much better. I use at minimum six segments.
