Problems / Re: image greys over on reload
« Last post by Torfinn on Today at 08:23:29 AM »
Maybe you have selected the dwl file instead of tcw.
They will have nearly the same name
name.tcw
name.tcw.dwl
And the dwl is a safetyfile so that not more than one person can work at the same drawing at the same time, there are no drawing info in it.
Also after a crash there can be left a dwl file, so when the drawing is NOT open, go to the place where you save it and delet the .dwl if you have, before open the drawing again.

Problems / Re: Keeping TurboPDF to Scale
« Last post by Torfinn on Today at 08:16:26 AM »
Use P Space and insert a viewport where you want it and scale it so it fit in selected/ wanted papersize in a "normal" scalefactor, like 1:100, 1:20 or what suit best.
Then check the Printersettings in TC, and make sure you NOT have checked "Fit", also that your printer is without margins.
The print to TurboPDF and it should come out in correct scale.

Hi All, just sent message but something crashed it, so a shorter message here...

I have a jpeg in a TCAD file, ( I know, it will be treated as a BMP (raster file)

When I save it, it re-opens withe the image greyed out

I include a second file that has been saved allready (not scaled

message will not send, problem with *.dwl ext

I do not know where that came from (someone did mention this before

SO! no file to see

Heho

Best wishes Jim

Problems / Keeping TurboPDF to Scale
« Last post by oldpete on Today at 07:11:44 AM »
I am using TC 19 and the latest TurboPDF.  I need to send a to-scale PDF file to my laser cutter but when I convert my TC drawing to PDF the item I have drawn comes out larger.  Is there any way to keep the PDF file to the same scale a my drawing?

I did redo my templates to have expert faceting turned off by default. Using the highest setting for faceter quality is giving me acceptable results for circles to far.

Even a setting of 90 gives me acceptably-smooth curves, while speed things up noticeably.

Problems / Re: Text problems when re-opening old drawings

What I'm seeing is that the Leader Dimension / General / Attribute entry is <null>.  The 'hieroglyphic' is a separate Multiline Text object unconnected to the Leader.  This is a very curious bug, but if you edit the Attribute entry to place an arbitrary text string, it displays properly, including in Arial.

Seems to me the only way to fix this would be to open the original file in a version as close to the original as possible, then export it as a DWG file.

Problems / Re: Function Of Arc Tangent To Entities Has Changed
« Last post by Henry Hubich on January 24, 2020, 07:03:07 PM »
... Try Locking the Radius field before entering a value-- after activating the Tool, but before actually snapping to anything.  This allows me to do it in 3 clicks, the third/last being the "Finish". (alternatively, hitting Enter can be done in lieu of that third click)

Alternatively, you can tab into the Radius field, enter a number, then <Ctrl>-L to activate the lock.  Once I've done this, the Arc / Tangent to 2 Entities and Circle / Tangent to Entities functions work as expected.

Sonofagun. I didn't know that. Very handy tip, Jeff.

Attached is what I saw when I opened the file.  No problems with text whatsoever.

Yup, that particular PS is OK. But have a look at PaperSpace "3-UT1" and "4-UT23" (and several others).
