It would seem to me that when you name a view, it would capture the view and also reveal only the layers you had on when you Named the view. But it doesn't. Hope that is clearer. Thanks, Roger
Thanks for discussing this.
Firstly: My take on this - as a 3d cad user new to Turbocad is:
I cannot believe the levels of controllability that are accessible in the TC package. â€“ Great!.
Second: I noticed the same thing as Roger, but I thought it was just some quirky malfunction of my new setup [which is not being very nice presently]
-It would be nice to have usability of layers in the fashion Roger initially described.
Third: My point â€“ Learning Turbocad is very demanding. I have to be working constantly on TC with no major interruptions to make progress. A usable personal setup is proving not to be a straightforward thing to achieve and I keep getting â€œthrownâ€ by my expectation of how Turbocad should behave [â€œlike other 3d competitorsâ€] and the reality which is â€“Something like the-very accurate- foregoing layers dialogue.
My copy of TC 16.2 sits here smiling contentedly out of the screen at me, with all this control accessability and clever graphics toolsets â€“( Rod details one example [layers] above ).-and challenges me to make it function as a usable thing.
Soooâ€¦ By all means and please keep the controllabity levels, -Oh Ye whose task it is-, But also please clean out duplications and differing descriptors and quirkyâ€™ find the current iconâ€™ tricks in the menu sets and please provide a sensible â€œfast trackâ€ introduction for newbies like eg me which HIGHLIGHTS all the known issues whichTC users are having to put up with because of the Marketing and programming convenience decisions [ which are clear to end users btw ] ..and.. the help file I am using is accurate (I think) but all page references appear to be 20 pages wrong â€“ This ainâ€™t good pals] â€“ an unnecessary discouragement.
Like you Rod I await v17 with interest but this software needs more than one or two additional iterations to stand against the big hitters â€“ but please donâ€™t put the price out of reach dear marketeers - by then you will owe these forum contributors big time.
Price is what brought me here.
Currently I am wasting time having to write stuff like this
Most of the problems are known
So are the answers
Please fix â€“ soon [Bells and whistles can wait]
16.2 pro plat vista ult
