Hello John Pepper or John Jones,

 

When you pre-order the pre-release do you have to download it in order to use the 2018 user forum? I was just wanted to view the 2018 user forum and then after viewing maybe download 2018. Also is this for people that have a lot of time on their hands to use the pre-release or can it be used by a casual user?

 

Also how is the time line looking for release of 2018?

 

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and for your kind help.

 

Dominic

Okay, I've been through the order process, and received emails from Softplan, but like Marlin, can't see the relevant forum. I've signed out and signed back in to the forum, and still no change. I suspect that since the registration requires a "MAIN" key number, that the secondary keys don't have access.

 

Marlin, is yours a main key or a secondary?

 

John, do the secondary keys automatically get access with a main key, as my forum access/login is done with a secondary key?

Yes, my key issues came because I was attempting to activate a secondary Key. It has now been resolved and I am just waiting out my '24Hr' time. Thanks to all for the great help in this area!

I also downloaded the prerelease version. For some reasons the libraries came empty and nothing migrated over from 2016 even tho I thought I told it to. Tech support told me to Download Additional Content. Does it make sense that I started downloading it this morning and it is still downloading ? If I click on Download Additional Content now I get a message that Downloading of additional content is already in progress.

 

Also, does anyone know how to access the forum for 2018?

the 2 folders for my 3d models and the corresponding spy (in symbol folder) , both named "randy",  didn't get put in the 2018 beta download.

 

note: I did hit the button for "download additional content" in the "help" area of SP as mentioned above.

 

 

 

could anyone give me advise on the correct procedures'

btw.  I used to "copy & paste" each of the 3d and spy folders

with the name "randy" from the previous softplan version

to the newest version. 

 

what about the ARCHIVE method ?

  i've never used that procedure in 20 years.

As near as I can tell, nothing has changed for high resolution monitors. I was hoping that with 2018 we would be able to enlarge the menus and navigation bar so that I could draw using the higher resolution without straining my eyes to read the menus and navigation bar.
