  1. okay so what I envision is is a little box about the size of the "hot toggles" box.

    This would have a greid in it, with 4 "lines"
    each line has a name, that you can define with what ever you want it could be "1-30" or "SE" or "north section road" or anything.

    THEN in cogo when asks for either a bearing or distance, you can click this box , and it would enter for you either the bearing or distance as the case may be.

    A curve might also be used.

    The problem this would solve is this..... …

  2. Include a predefined Wet Land/Swamp Hatch Pattern with the rest of the hatch patterns already included with MSCAD 2010 & 2013.

  3. I am Saeed Keramat , university student in branch of surveying engineer from Iran. i worked by several designing software such as (land desktop-2000-2009 & SDR Map 6.5 and more ...) ;
    I had acquainted with your software about 3 months ago.it have easy usage for anybody and with creativity designing. In cause I am translating application help into Farsi
    Also a exposition will establish in Iran. So I want edition your software‘s book to Persian language and also I want you let me represent your software in surveying Exhibition
    If you tend i can send you this translate files…

  4. Is it possible to add another code to the Cogo bearing codes (Currently 1=NE, 2=SE, 3=SW, 4=NW)? e.g. 5=North/South Azimuth.
    e.g.
    I'm working on a drawing in bearings and most of my existing field work is in bearings, but I receive some field data/traverse data that uses azimuths and I want to compute that information without having to change my drawing settings to azimuths.

  5. I am new and maybe this has been talked about. I would like to see the ability as autocad will allow you to select a point and only display the description and select an different point and only display the elevation for example. I use this regarding topo surveys that certain points I would like to show the elevation, but not the number or description, but other places I would like the description to show but not the other two.

  6. Add a tool in MS Labels 1 that allows you to add both the bearing and distance off line at the same time rather than having to do each one separately.

  7. Certain text is in model space and some in paper space. The scale should automaticly change from model scale to scale = 1 in paper space and vice versa. Should apply to block scaling as well.

  8. Please consider installing the Text mask tool that is in AuotCad in embedded cad. This a very useful tool

  9. In current version MSCad will calculate and then apply a correction to bearings (e.g., the file is in UTM but you want to enter "plan bearings"). On projects with many plans on different bearing references, it would be nice to store the angle for each plan and then select it from a list. The correction angles could be used to create a table for a legend of bearing corrections.

  10. Most plans I work on have curves and/or polylines as boundaries. Would be nice to be able to add dimensioning arrows with the button in the MS Labels1 toolbar.

  12. Request:

    Create or extend the line function tool in the inquiry toolbars to include:


    • Grade in %

    • Grade in 1:x

    Currently as below:

    Starting point for distance
    End point:
    Distance = 1.176, Angle in XY Plane = 188°8'46", Angle from XY Plane = 0°0'0"
    Delta X = -1.164, Delta Y = -0.167, Delta Z = 0.000

    Also when selecting the function the command should not stop running until esc is selected ion the keyboard. At the moment you have to constantly keep selecting the tool.

    Thank you in advance.

  13. There should be a way in the symbol librarian to apply a symbol to multiple points via either windowing, or through typing Pt#..Pt#. Sometimes we want to add symbols to a series of points that are not coded correctly, or the drawing will serve dual purposes. While AutoMap allows for symbols to be added to all points of a certain description it does not handle manual exclusion well.

    For instance if I want to show a cross symbol at points top50 to top100 but not points top1..top49 because they are in a different area I should be able to just…

  14. Other CAD packages have a function called "eTransmit", where you can pack your drawing file including all referenced files like background images that are just linked into the drawing into one zip file.

  17. We do a lot of work as-builting pipelines and would love a command that uses input/output scale factors to calculate chainage on a 2d and 3d polyline

  19. Canadian Surveyor, working primarily in metric. I'd like to be able to set up a "Distance Style" to display smart labels in architectural units, as in, feet and fractional inches. I can easily make a plot with scaled dimensions, but getting these to display correctly with fractions for a home builder is not so easy or convenient. I'd like to be able to easily do this without having to make a separate file, and completely changing the job configuration to do so.

  20. This request refers the CAD Line Computations when a line is selected. In the "Traverse" or "Turned Angle" routines there is an issue with the entered distance when using an input scale factor. If I enter a distance of 100 and select OK the distance changes to the scaled distance so If I use the same distance again I have to re-enter the distance or the distance will be scaled again. I would like the distance to remain 100 and have the scale calculations performed in the background.
