New features in DesignCAD 3D MAX v. 22 New Commands DesignCAD 3D Max 22 Reference Manual File > Print Section
DesignCAD 3D Max 22 Reference Manual is now accessible through Start > Programs > DesignCAD 3D MAX 22 > DesignCAD 3D Max 22 Reference Manual
This new command allows you to specify a rectangular subsection of the drawing to be printed; once the region is selected, the Print command opens, and only considers the area you chose when calculating overall size, scale, and other print features.
Edit > Selection Edit > Convert > Double Line to Vector
This new command converts the selected double line object(s) to normal vectors using the currently-active line style and line width. Note: This command differs from the similar command Double Line to Wide Line, which converts the selected double lines to wide lines of the same width as the original double lines.
Options > Layer Options
The Layer Options dialog has been redesigned to maximize the amount of layer information displayed. It can be resized to show more layers and longer layer names; unwanted columns can be hidden by right-clicking on the column headers.
Right-clicking on the body of the layer list provides a context menu which exposes commands that were formerly presented as buttons.
New capabilities have also been added, including: Show Highlighted Layers, Hide Highlighted Layers, Lock Highlighted Layers, Unlock Highlighted Layers, Clear Highlighted Layer Colors, Clear Highlighted Layer Linestyles, Clear Highlighted Layer Names and Clear All Layer Names.
The Save as Default button now saves the layer names along with the layer presets. Note: Those who prefer the old Layer Options dialog will still be able to access it from the Layers tab of the Options > Options command.
BasicCAD users: the new Layer Options dialog can be opened with the LayerOptions2 macro command.
Coordinate bar field width: This option lets you specify the width (in pixels) of the coordinate bar’s numeric fields. This can be handy when you want to display more digits, are displaying coordinates in feet and fractional inches or are using a large display font. The minimum value is 48 pixels; the maximum will vary depending on the width of your display.
Layers list additional width: This option lets you specify how much extra width (in pixels) to add to the layer drop list in the Info Box and Layer Toolbox relative to the layer control.
