Feature Requests / Re: Shortcuts

Hi there,

In each menu, you have the tool name and the tool shortcut.

In addition, in order to customize your selections and keys, you can use 2D => Selection Filter Options.

V17 - 2017 Looking for Help? / Compound Pathways?
« Last post by tdiaz on December 10, 2017, 04:04:28 AM »
Other than using a floor object moved to the landscape layer, custom polygon, .. etc. Is there a way to put a fork in a path/driveway?

...and change the angle of the end? I'm not exactly sure how/why the second example has the diagonal edge, as I ended up with that while experimenting with a forked pathway by overlaying control points.

Replying to the old thread with regards to TFP Pro 2017:

Although it's not documented, while the Select Objects tool is enabled Center-Clicking and dragging will pan the document window around.

In fact, it will pan around with any of the "Editing Tools" selected. Zoom in/out, but want to zoom in at the other end of the document now? No need to change tool selection. Just press the center button. (It's the click wheel on most devices).

As for the other menu items that do not have shortcuts, there are ways. Perhaps the most common way would be using another product like Keyboard Maestro configured to have application specific functions defined.

I chose a different approach  :-X  ..and Rotate is Command-R for me ;-)

 ... now if I could only figure out how to get a key item to select tool types that don't have a menu item associated with them...  ;D

Using Keyboard Maestro to do tool selection would require that the document window be in exactly the same place, so that's not an optimal way to handle that.

Multi-lingual was a poor choice of words.

More specifically, to be able to enter a unit of measure value in -any- supported format and have it display on the current document according to the selected Unit of Measure for that document.

As an example, You're setting up the garage, you're going to install a vehicle lift, they give you specifications in Metric. You want to put a floor object down to represent the item.

I can enter '5m' and because my settings are English Units for that document, I'll see '196.875' on the drawing.

TurboCAD does it. But TFP does a whole lot more that you'd have to do manually with TurboCAD.

Ideally, the Superduper Platinum Version of IMSI Do It All 2018 would be just that .. but that's not likely .. so ..  ;D

Hi there,

Not sure how a multilingual world is related with the setting and units systems of TurboFloorPlan.  ???
Let's clarify some concepts:
1 - The English system is not related with the English language => it is related with the measuring system used in US (for example). Centimeters are related with the Metric System used in Canada, South America, etc.
2 -  In TurboFloorPlan you can determine the settings, units and precision using the desired system => Go to Design => Options => Units of Measure => Select the desired Unit, precision, decimal or fraction. Then go to => Design => Options => Dimensioning and fonts => check / uncheck display unit indicators.
3 -  Note that if you select (for example) English System => Ft-in and you draw a custom wall with length= 200", the program will follow your instructions and the dimension will be expressed in  FT-in, this means that instead of 200", the program will write 16'-8"

TFP, as any program, has a learning curve. The best way to learn the program, IMO, is practice + practice + practice => Read and follow the manual (this is important), see the videos => try to create elements not related with your project, so you will become familiar with the commands and how to develop the different components.
If you are interested, I have several training e-books, one of them is free. See links below.

Hope this helps.

... in this multi-lingual world, how about being able to enter a number and have it act on a unit suffix.

If drawing is set to English Units, and I enter "200mm", "20cm", .. it will show me 7.874" on the drawing.

If I entered "200" and no suffix, then it's going to take that as 200" (inches) because thats what I've got the thing set to.

Hi there,

Instead of processing just the files, I created an entire tutorial with instructions for the installation (Mac and Windows)
You will find the files and tutorial in my Facebook page
https://www.facebook.com/notes/punchhelpers/pats-tip-14/1758495167556049/

You can see a rendering with a few pieces applied in the image attached.

Hope this helps!  :)
