  1. 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.

  3. If I have 2 circles or arcs, I cannot draw a single segment that is tangent to both. The old DOS based CAD could do this, but I have been waiting for this feature in MSCAD. If this feature is available, it has eluded me for over a decade.

  4. For MSCAD 2016 it would be nice to be able to mass select different entities of text and add an underline to them.

  5. Would love to see an extra option in automap that would let us specify a distance between points to ignore drawing line work.

    For instance, when I run automap, if our field crews have used the same code between finishing in one place and moving to another, I'll get lines that go across my drawing. I would like to be able to specify to the program that I would like it to ignore a distance of x between two point with the same codes.

    So if they picked up a driveway using DWAT1 then moved down the road 50 meters…

  6. The limit is far too small for the type of surveys done with UAV's. I want to set it to find the points and come back in the morning and have it done. At present I need to do it in blocks forcing me to sit and manage the whole process instead of setting it and walking away. I would like to be able to do 5km square area at a 2m grid. I appreciate it will take a while (the 2015 version would get it done in a couple of days)
    Alternately if that cant be done, when setting…

  7. 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.

  8. Working in high rise residential I'm setting up multiple targets on surrounding buildings. I must shoot the targets from multiple ground set-ups from ground controls given from the surveyor. When coordinating these targets from different set-ups I get slight errors in distance, elevation, and northing/eastings so I need to average these points. I do this manually. I would like to select the points in model space with window select or active coordinate editor.

  9. Allow users to be able to drag drawing tabs to adjoining monitors such that multiple drawings can be displayed on different screens from the same instance of Microsurvey.

  13. the ipn labels are not layer controlled.when setting points on different layers, and turning on the ipn's, (ipn, ipd & ipe), it would be nice to see only the ipn labels for the points that are thawed rather than all points in the drawing file

  16. Bring back the ability to switch between decimals degrees and DMS for lat/long coordinates in the active coordinate editor. It's a PITA to have to change the drawing units in order to see decimal degrees. Single checkbox functionality was in 2010. We moved to 2018 and lost it.

  17. If CSF and convergence are turned off and not displayed in the active coordinate editor, don't include those columns in copy and paste functionality.

  18. 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.

  19. When inserting tables, have them work like and excel spreadsheet. When different tables are created for points have the table come in as a table, not as an exploded table.

  20. Selection Cycling allows one to see how many lines they have on top of each other, which is sometimes needed. Selection cycling allows one to select the linework they want to.
