TurboCAD Designer 17
OK, I loaded an old AutoCAD drawing of a retaining wall section in TurboCAD and edited it for a new project. It took me forever (not kidding... since the dawn of time) as I was learning TurboCAD, but I at least have something for my client to review tommorow. Now I want to print it. My overall drawing is some sort of size (I draw full size and then print to the scale I need to fit on the paper size I want), and it has several details with individual boarders for each. In this case, I need to print one of the details on 8 1/2 x 11 paper from my brother laser printer.
It appears that TurboCAD does not have the very nice AutoCAD feature of printing a window (selecting it from inside the plot menu). How do I select the view I want to print? Could it be some sort of "View" option. If so, where do I read and learn how to make one?
Regarding the pen width in the Print Style Manager, I pray that there are more pen width options than those listed because 0.01, 0.02, and 0.05-inches does not provide much creativity. I realize there are larger ones, but I don't really think my client is going to get much out of a big black blob on the paper. Who needs a line 1/8-inch wide on a structural drawing, except for maybe the boarder? There has to be something I'm missing. Help!!
As a side note, when I select a width, the next time I look at it the width has been changed to a fraction rather than the decimal I selected. What's up with that? Confusing. And the smaller widths are indicated by a zero. Not sure I understand a line zero in width. Wierd.
Also, my text is in red, but changing the width of the color red does not change the width of the text. Is the text pen width edited elsewhere??
