  • Category Tree is Corrupt

    Hi, I thought I'd leverage the macro folders and add my own folder. When I did that I got an error that the "category tree is corrupt!". It did not add my folder.


    Subsequently, everytime I tried to add a new macro object the error comes up (I'm not even trying to create a new folder at this point). Yes, I did quit and restart the program and the error remains in this file.


    Further, when I tried to rename a macro object, the program crashed completely.


    Don't know if this has been reported, or if files can get corrupted, but I hope not because I've spent a lot of hours on this file. Please advise.

  • Micro-nudge

    Hi, another great feature would be the ability to change the nudge value when using the arrow keys to move objects. Changing the default nudge value to the smallest increment you folks can mill would be very helpful in lining things up. Even better, allow the user to choose in the preferences from the smallest to the largest nudge.


    Many graphics programs also allow adding modifier keys to the nudge, so a Shift-nudge would be bigger than a regular nudge, and a Control-nudge would be smaller than a regular nudge.


    I don't mean to hold a nudge, but...

  • Complex Drill Holes

    A really helpful feature would be the ability to combine simple shapes to make more complex cutouts. Most graphics software has this ability, and it would save a lot of time to be able to take a circle and a rectangle drill hole and combine them to make a keyway for a switch, for example.

  • 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.

  • macros with changeable drillings

    I am using the "Sub-D 25 pole with changeable drillings" library macro, and wonder how I can change the mounting holes (or even find out what the present hole size/type is).

  • Difference between cavity and blind hole

    I have a question, what is the difference between a circular cavity and a blind hole with a diameter of 1.25"? They seem to do the same but the cavity is much more expensive. When I want a 3mm cavity in a 4mm panel, is there a danger that when using a blind hole it may punch through instead of having a nice flat bottom?
