As shown in the picture, some dimension arrowheads increase in size, why dimension arrowhead increases in size after blocks being exploded and how to deal with it?
Some users have complained about how their drawings increase in size and it’s getting harder to work on their drawings because the copy and paste are not available.
But what makes a CAD drawing unexpectedly increase in size?
Sometimes we know the exact coordinates, but sometimes we only know the angle and distance.
You use the Block Editor to define and modify the objects and behavior in a block definition. In the Block Editor, you add parameters and actions, which define custom properties and dynamic behavior.
This system variable can have a drastic effect on the appearance of offsets. It’s stored in the registry so it affects all drawings. The initial value is 0. Check the simple picture below as a reference.
Yes! The zoom direction can be changed. Users have different habits when using the wheel. How does the mouse wheel meets my habit? System variable ZOOMWHEEL can do you a favor. It can toggles the direction of transparent zoom operations when you scroll the middle mouse wheel. This really a useful variable for some designers.
While using the middle mouse wheel to zoom in and zoom out in a drawing, Have you ever felt the middle mouse wheel zoom is too fast or too slow? That’s true. It can depend on the scale of the drawing and objects you are working on, or perhaps even your mood. This speed of the zoom in and out is controlled by a system variable named ZOOMFACTOR. The default of the system variable ZOOMFACTOR is 60. You type ZOOMFACTOR and then change the value. Don’t hesitate to have a try!
You may occasionally find yourself in a situation where the NEW, OPEN, and SAVE commands do not provide a dialog.
What happened with the drawing? why the texts are missing? Don’t
This is actually a setting to simplify the drawing appearance. By simplifying the text appearance, you can work with drawing faster. The system variable that responsible for this appearance is QTEXTMODE. You can turn it on/off by typing QTEXTMODE. Value 1 means it is active and 0 is inactive (default). So use it only when you don’t work with text. This system variable is stored in drawing, so it’s drawing specific. Not for all drawings.
