V100 Move Command

N/A
Hello,
I'm having trouble with the move command using the step option. Does not
appear to work. Anyone else seeing this?

After playing with this some more, I found out that it had something to do
with the grid settings, I think when snap to grid is enabled the values in
the move command are ignored.

Tom,
This is true. Grid snapping will override the inputs on the move and only
allow grid incremental moving.

At least for me, there's a little more to this that I've reported. Namely, for the
distance or step entries of the MOVE & STRETCH commands to work, you must uncheck
the SNAP TO GRID option in the GRID OPTIONS BOX. Disabling the SNAP TO GRID on the
grid ribbon doesn't work.
Haven't heard whether that's a bug or something wrong with my application.

Ron,
I have been scratching my head with some of the grid/keyin topics in the
news group. Finally the light bulb came on as to what I am hearing vs. what
I know. The what I know is that the old Grid command was removed from the
UI. The what I hear is that you can add it back in through customize. I
didn't realize you could do this.
The specific grid command that displayed the grid ribbon bar was removed
from the UI in V100. We moved the grid options and commands to the commands
in the Draw command group. I see that you have found that you can get the
old grid command back by adding it to the Quick Access Toolbar. The Grid
command should not be there even through customize. Although it works for
the most part, it is unanticipated. I am supprised that it works as well as
it does because of the changes. Using it this way should not give you any
problems as far as any file corruption, but you may see some strange
behavior. An example is that you cannot enable/disable grid snapping through
the ribbon bar as you could before. You must use the dialog.
As we moved to the new UI, we knew we were going to loose was the ability to
keyin coordinate values for a period of time. However, we are planning a
solution to that problem that will be better than the key in fields on the
old ribbon bar. There is too much mouse travel involved in using the keyins
on the ribbon bar.
For those of you that need the coordinate keyins, you can read through this
post and add the old Grid command. I am reluctant to give specific
directions to do this because I don't know what impacts it may have.
Regards,
Rick B.

Ricky, if you read the thread CORRECT METHOLOGY FOR USING SE, you’ll understand why
I, and maybe others, like the grid bar with the ability to easily reposition the
grid origin and type in coordinates. I’m use to using IMSI 3D CAD MAX, which allows
you to key in x/y distances from a snap to point causing the chosen command to begin
at those distances from the snap point. It works great in finding the correct spot
to begin/end a command. I find it time consuming/mouse active/thought required
to use smart dimensions to locate a starting point.
I did find the GRID OPTIONS WINDOW in the HOME commands. But using the F9 key to
toggel snaping doesn’t work - just like it acts when you pull it up from the GRID
BAR. I can’t find a shortcut way to toggle snaping on/off or to reposition the
grid. And since the steps and x/y inputs don't work for the MOVE and STRETCH commands
when snaping is enabled, this is a problem.
I light of your discovery, I’m wondering if the intermittent behavior of the DELETE
key is a function of having the GRID BAR opened. I’ll have to experiment.
Thanks,
Ron
