Any update on Co-ordinate boxes to input data


In the near future I need to make a new drawing,I want to be able to type in co-ordinates
to position things and I'm going to reinstall V20 so I can do this if there aren't
any updates imminent for V100.
If the files I saved in V100 won't open in V20 what can I do do make them usable?
I did find V20 more intuitive to use than V100 as well.

Allan,
The key in fields for the new UI is being investigated.
Please explain the workflow you are using where you depend on key ins for
creating the geometry. I may be able to help with a different workflow.
Draft files are upward compatable only.

Rick B.

Hi Rick,
Thanks for the reply.
I make 1/5 scale RC motorbikes and draw a new frame for each modification.I start
of with the original drawing and move fixing holes etc.as required on the new drawing
usually starting with the first hole as a fixed point and draw the mods in relation
to this.
May be that's not the way to do it,but it works for me and lets me keep track of
where I am as I have no formal training in drawing at all and found the previous
versions of 2D fairly intuitive to use,alas I don't find the V100 anywhere near
as intuitive.
I use Photoshop quite a bit and the tools seem better placed on the LH side rather
than on the top and bottom where they are now.
Also the new version completely fills the screen and the button to close it is only
just visible on my set up.
Regards,Allan
