CADPower-GeoTools V 17.10 Update (More Maintenance and System Support Tools)
CADPower V 17.10 Update
Enhanced command: CP_MAINTENANCE (CADPower -> More Options -> Maintenance/Housekeeping): (work in progress):
The CP_MAINTENANCE command was introduced in V 17.09. It has been expanded a bit and you can get a preview of the kind of manintenance and house-keeping tasks we intend to provide going forward. This is a sneak preview of several maintenance and diagnostic tasks you can perform. This is still work in progress, and only the following three items are implemented:
Enhanced command: CP_SHOWPATHS (CADPower -> More Options -> Show system & DWG paths):
The CP_SHOWPATHS command has been enhanced. Instead of presenting the folder options on the command window, it is now displayed within a scrollable dialog box so that users can pick the item they want easily.
New feature added: BricsCAD+ menu: The BricsCAD+ menu is a new add-on to the existing user interface of CADPower. It is a freeware feature and never expires in CADPower. The BricsCAD+ menu offers some commonly used shortcuts and menu items (found in familiar AutoCAD interfaces) and makes it easily available to BricsCAD users.
The ‘QuickTools’ toolbar contains various Zoom command options and the real-time pan which are most often missed by new BricsCAD users.
The ‘UCS’ toolbar contains all the UCS options in exactly the same way as AutoCAD shows it. This eases the transition for BricsCAD users.
The ‘Viewport’ toolbar contains all the Viewport create/manage options in the same way as AutoCAD shows it.
The main ‘BricsCAD+’ toolbar offers several shortcuts and quick-access tools as listed below:
- Layer Commands shortcut
- Layer, Style, DimStyle dialogs that directly connect and open Explorer
- Point Style dialog (ddpstyle)
- Many dimensioning, scale management & editing shortcuts are available.
- Purge & XREF tools
- The FILTER command
