  • Locking Objects

    Hi, I don't know if this has been mentioned, but it SURE would help if we could lock objects to the page and not have them try to be selected when something else is on top of it...better yet, how about a layering system like illustrator or corel? Then we can lock/turn off the layers we are not wanting to change.


    Sorry if this has already been suggested; if not it would really help. Thx.

  • saving files

    In previous version, it was possible to set the default location for saved files. I'd like to see this back.

    Also the Recent Files header is a bit sloppy. Why not put recently opened files directly at the bottom like most other software.

  • Stock Rackmount panels

    I really like the idea of your side panel extrusions. They seem affordable, and I'm sure they are very solid. For the purposes of making rack cases however, the costs of top/bottom panels adds up very quickly.


    For my purposes, I don't have any special requirements for top/bottom panels. Perhaps a few air vent holes, but I don't really even care where they are located. For an 11" deep 19" wide rack case, the cost of the top and bottom panels comes to around $60 a piece, which is about the same as front/rear panels. That makes a 1U enclosure somewhere around $260.


    I like the flexibility of front and back panel design, but I wonder if one of the following could be a solution to reduce cost and increase sales:


    1. Manufacture standard rack width top/bottom panels similar to your extrusions: in one big long sheet, and then cut to the customer's length requirements.


    2. Keep several standard length top/bottom rack panels (like 6", 10", 13", 16", 20"), and manufacture them in bulk so that you can make them more cheaply and offer them more cheaply.


    3. Source some standard length top/bottom rack panels (like 6", 10", 13", 16", 20") in steel from another supplier in bulk and just resell them. This way they could be thinner (0.06") and cheaper.



    As is, I'm probably going to end up purchasing a stock rack chassis from somewhere else and then either send a front and rear panel to you to customize or just drill it myself. If you offered simple stock top/bottom panels at $10 a piece, an enclosure would be around $160, which would be affordable enough where I would be much more likely to get a custom chassis from you.



    I have no idea how many rack cases you sell, but it seems that if you sell enough to warrant having some top/bottom panels in bulk then you could sell more.

  • macro replacement function

    It would be helpful after carefully placing macro objects that if they need to be replaced with a different macro object at the same location...maybe something like

    (1) right click the object

    (2) popup menu > click "replace"

    (3) select macro object in sidebar

    (4) click "enter"



    (1) select macro object in dwg

    (2) click a new "Replace" button maybe in macro sidebar

    (3) select the macro object in sidebar to replace with

    (4) click "Enter"
