BasicCAD / Re: A way to repeat the last macro ?
« Last post by Lar on October 11, 2017, 06:30:12 AM »

F3 repeats a macro for me.


What version are you guys using? I remember many versions back F3 after a macro would run the last command that was in the macro (if there one) but now it just repeats the macro.

If you run the macro from the command line, all you have to do is press the spacebar/<enter> again.

deydope;

My way to repeat with a macro is to ask at the end of the macro if I want another with a question at it's end and if so it goes back to the start and run again. That may be too crude for some, but it works for me.

BasicCAD / A way to repeat the last macro ?
« Last post by deydope on October 11, 2017, 02:50:43 AM »
Hello there,

As you know, in dcad it's possible to repeat the last command by pressing f3 or an other key if you changed it but i was thinking if there is a way to do the same thing but with macro ?
I have already tried to use f3 but it says the symbol is not found.

If someone have an idea...

I've experimented with FreeDos on Virtualbox. The disadvantage is that I couldn't figure out how to run it in extended video modes.

I got DOSBox to run DC 2D (Version 6), but DC 3D was buggy, but it may have been mistakes I made in the configuration file. Both were very slow.

I don't think you can get the DOS versions of DesignCAD to work on 64-bit Windows. DosBox may work, but I can't say for certain. You might also try using VMWare or something similar, and install a 32-bit (or even 16-bit) version of Windows on a virtual machine.

Code: [Select]
>deselect
{
}
GETATTR i, t
PUTATTR i, t, 1
>erase
{
}

Lar,
Longwinded indeed.  ;D 

deydope,
I've been using query and change for so long that I ALSO had forgotten that the entity statement could be used with the pointval statement in that manner you describe. Not useful in this instance, but pointval as you used it is a valid alternative to query ent_point.

However, a nice thing about the query/change parameters is that they are all organized in the SDK under: "query and change parameters" for easy reference.

Thanks Lar and deydope for the refresher.

Looking For Help? / DesignCad v6 and W7 XP Mode - how to have it work
« Last post by marcel.zx on October 09, 2017, 09:14:18 PM »
environment :
- HP ZBook i7
- W7 64bit
- XP Mode working
- DC file conversion working good in XP mode

problem :
when starting DC6, I have the following error :
The video device failed to initiate for full screen mode

Shortcut Proprieties Notes :
Screen\Usage = Window
Program\Run = Normal Window

questions :

1) Is it possible to run DC4 in W7 XP Mode?
2) If yes, any idea about that problem?
3) If not what do you suggest? DosBox? Vdos? Other???

thanks

You can't beat macros. . . . .Without macros dcad would honestly be unusable for me. 

Hear, hear.

Some simple operations cannot be performed without great difficulty, unless a macro is used. (eg progressive dimensions)
Some operations can be performed only with a macro.
