Plans Sets need:
 
Cursor to move freely Accent(`)
1/8" increments are not accurate enough when working on the smallest drawing area of all.
For example: I cannot center text in triangle (see attached picture).
 
Copy, Paste and Paste in Place. THIS IS A MUST.
I hope this goes without explaining.
 
Anyone else agree?

I agree with your request but why not use a triangle outline on your number?

I agree with Jim, use the Triangle option for the outline.

 

When I am in a Plan Set page, the cursor moves freely and if I select Move, F12 will unlock it.

 

I would also like to see the SoftPlan Clipboard options available in Plan Set, that would make it easier to place revision text on subsequent pages.

I'm going to add my two cents...

 

The problem with the triangle outline option is it is too big and odd with different numbers/digits. The ever-changing size of an outline on different digits of the same size makes it look horrible in certain instances.

 

Second, the free arrangement of drawings, text and other objects on plan sets needs a lot of improvement. Being able to snap to different edges or verticies in a live elevation, 3d model, or section would be helpful. I have all sorts of difficulties lining up live views of interior sections, elevations, etc. The whole idea of having a model that is updated when changes are made is to be able to have elevations, sections, etc also "live update". SP needs a bit of work to truly be useful in that sense.

It's not the only one either ... a number of the outlines are virtually useless. ESPECIALLY if you specify the text within them as BOLD, as the outline doesn't then follow the text properly.

 Yes, that's a problem with every versions but remains uncorrected.

I've been meaning to mention it on a number of occasions, but somehow it seemed like a petty complaint. The problem with petty complaints is that if no-one ever mentions them they never get fixed.
