  • Thru holes

    When I enetr a thru hole, regardless of size, the depth dialog sub-box is grayed out with a 1.27 depth dimension. So while the pictorial cleary shows that I am creating a thru hole, this does leave me with a bit of angst. Especially as I am a new user. Would perhaps be nice, for clarity and completesness, if the "insert drill hole" clearly specified "thru hole" per selection.

    A thru hole is a thru hole no matter what is grayed out. However, I'm with you. It would make me nervous as well.


    This dialog window remembers your last settings. For instance, check "blind hole". This will make "depth" available. Now enter 0 and uncheck "blind hole". Close the dialog and reopen it. You see the depth is now 0.


    It can be very handy to have the last settings remembered instead of set back to default. A grayed out box has no impact, always go with the preview.


    I hope this makes sense.


    Best regards,
