MicroSurvey CAD

Welcome to the MicroSurvey CAD feedback and ideas forum. This forum is for you to use to offer us feedback about features you would like added or improved.

You have 25 votes that can be used, a minimum of one vote is needed per feature request. You can also use your votes towards existing features that other users have requested.

After a feature has been implemented, you will get your votes back to apply to new or other existing features.

How can we improve MicroSurvey CAD, inCAD, or embeddedCAD?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Select by Description

    The three option to pick from are very nice.
    We need one more. For the program to remember the last Four
    Descriptions typed in. It remembers the last pick, but I like to see a list of the last four to pick from.

  2. Fix Mitigation Wizard - I want my tool bars like they were

    I want Mitigation Wizard to make my new version of MS CAD to look like my last version, INCLUDING ALL of the tool bars I had open. I am wasting time monkeying with Mitigation Wizard and then still having to re-pin the tool bars I want.

  4. ability to work with objects created with the Autocadd mleader command

    When working with an Autocadd Civil 3D file, Microsurvey is unable to edit or work with the objects created using the mleader command in Autocadd. The only way to work with these entities is to explode and work with the individual components. That causes issues when an Autocadd then follows behind and opens the drawing.

  7. Windows 10 Keyboard pop up with AutoMap library

    I would like the windows 10 on screen keyboard to pop up when the description key is pressed (ie. When the AutoMap library comes up)
    This will save the user having to tap in the description input box at the top where it says Enter description.
    Currently when the description button is pressed the AutoMap library window comes up and the cursor is flashing in the input box but the Windows 10 onscreen keyboard doesn't come up until you tap the blank input box. Having to tap in this box every time gets annoying and the extra tap means you…

  8. I would like to be able to change the orientation of the text when labeling a curve.

    When labeling a curve the text cannot be rotated 180 degrees using MsAnnotate. MSCad treats each individual text as a single entity and rotates it 180 degrees then the curve label is backwards. Example: when rotating r=310.00 180 degrees you get 00.013 = r. It is the same orientation as the other text but it is not right. The curve label should not be individual characters, but one entity of text.

  11. LOT CLOSURE PROGRAM

    ADD BUTTON (PICK BOTH WITH SWAP)
    The Swap button would only used for mistakes instead of more then
    half the picks in a drawing.

    After doing more then 600 closures there must be a way to speed up
    entry.

  13. Give Embedded Cad/Microsurvey Cad the option to NOT redraw existing data when importing new data

    When working on a large project, it may take several days to complete firldwork. I draft the data as it comes in the door, and when I synchronize the Field Genius files, the software rewrites ALL the data in the drawing. This is a pain for me, as I have spent considerable time moving text around so it's more clearly visible. Once it gets rewritten, I need to do it again. I have been using a dummy drawing as a workaround to extract specific sets of new coordinates (ascii file)and importing those to avoid this issue, but it's clunky.

  14. Combined Scale factor

    MicroSurvey now gives you Combined Scale factor.

    I think we should be definning what points are grid points and what are ground points. The program now treats them as though they are all the same. I think many might be confused.

  15. Automate drawing of rectangular manholes

    Drawing manholes in the correct orientation by surveying two corners and noting the right angled dimension would greatly reduce time in the field and in the office

  17. When using cogo

    Cogo to set the bearing to that of an existing line doesn't work when there are dashes in the point numbers.

    It works when inverting the numbers, just not when using 2 points to set the bearing.

  19. Free Adjustment

    Most of the software for adjustment has option for free network adjustment - no constrained. I think that is very useful.
