Imperial Units

In the program settings: F12 - System - Others you can select which units to display:

  • a) Metric
  • b) Imperial (decimal numbers)
  • c) Imperial (fractions)

If the page scale is set, the coordinates of objects can be entered in the form number unit or number fraction unit in the Properties panel.

For example:

  • 5 cm
  • 11.9 mm
  • 5.41 "
  • 1 3/8 "

Symbol editor

In the symbol editor, object coordinates are given in tenths of a millimeter. This is convenient, because the values can be changed using the mouse wheel. If you want to enter the coordinates with units (e.g., "5 cm"), press F12 in the symbol editor, select Symbol and check the box Use units in the Properties panel.

Snap

Snap can be entered in metric or imperial units, e.g., 4 mm, 0.5", 1/2", etc.

Panel Symbols graphically

In this panel, each symbol displays its name underneath the symbol. Using the slider at the top of the window, you can change the size of the symbol previews.

Arc defined by three points

To start drawing the arc, use the menu command Draw - Arc defined by 3 points or this icon: Arc defined by three points (the icon).

Arc defined by three points

The first mouse click defines the start point (1), the next click the point (2) through which the arc passes, and the third click the end point (3) of the arc.

To finish drawing the arcs, press the Esc key.

The old way of drawing an arc has been renamed to Inscribed Arc, because this arc is defined by a rectangle and two points: the start point and the end point. The icon for this arc is: inscribed arc icon

Improved Import from AutoCAD

When importing from AutoCAD as vector graphics, it is possible to specify the size of the imported drawing.

After inserting the imported symbol into the drawing, although it can be resized with the mouse, it is more convenient if the symbol is approximately the size it will be in the drawing.

The size can range from 3 cm (for small symbols) to 100 cm (e.g. for instance drawings with an extensive floor plan). You can set the desired size using the slider at the top of the window.

New option when renumbering connections.

You can now use the "renumber all except connections with letters in the name" option. If you use this option, connections like "L1", "L2", "PEN", etc. will not be renumbered.
