Whilst not the biggest update in the history of RealCAD the
new release of v5.50 is significant none the less. If you are
already a v5.0 user then this release is well worth downloading.
...but more importantly it adds powerful new functionality
to its snap controls, refresh and selection speeds and layer
No longer do you need to use the secondary Location Command
menu to find the centres or intersections, RealCAD's dynamic
cursor now shows you when it has found these important snap points...just
click when you see the desired indicator and the snap is complete.
Layers can now be grouped and these layer groups can be named,
so if you need to isolate or switch a bunch of layers on or off
regularly this is a great tool.
Repaint speed on large files has also been dramatically improved...and
better still, when selecting large numbers of entities the selection
speed is lightning fast.. YES! Added to this you can now switch
the windscreen wiper function on permanently so that as you zoom
in or out the image is constantly recalculated to give you smooth
curves and circles.
As an added bonus v5.5 resolves some annoying issues with
bitmaps and DWG files.
This interim release is available to all v5.0 users and can
be downloaded FREE from the here.
You can check to see what version you are currently running
by selecting 'Help- About' from the pull-down menu.
Caution: if you are a v2, v3 or v4 user do
not install this update file!
