    They tried to get too fancy;

    The report uses a ton of ink and takes up a lot of room. I'm told that you can switch to the old style, but have not find out how yet.

    True Position will take you several minutes to dimension one hole. I'm told that you can still do it the old way, but have not found out how yet.

    I am having trouble with my toolbars, but have been told that no one else has complained. We put 4.1 on two machines and have toolbar problems with both of them.

    4.1 is the lastest and best yet, if you ask Wilcox.

    Thank God we did a seperate install and still have 3.7mr3 to work with.

    Hey, if 4.1 is the best they have......maybe we should all cancel our maintinance agreement and just stick to 3.7mr.........

      If you are trying to get the report to look like a text only report all you have to do is open the textonly report template (not to edit but to view), move your cursor to the top(near the first dimensioned item almost between the dimensioned item and the header), right click there and you will get the choice of legacy dimension in a check box.

      TP can be done the old way very simply. Go to insert>dimension> click on legacy dimensions and voila...old style.

      If you don't like all the ink being used, whenyou go to Report print setup uncheck the box that says use colors(or something like that). And again voila, no color.

      Ask some more and I can provide more.

            Thanks James
            I will try that when I get the chance. I have only played around with v4 when it gets slow around here. Any thoughts on my icon trouble. I have used the customize window but can not add any dimensioning icons to the toolbar, the T/P icon is missing. It did let me create a new dimensioning toolbar and I can add whatever I want to it, but the standard dimension toolbar will not.

              4.1 in-process

              Started to play with 4.1 yesterday. I really like the updated graphics engines...runs smooth. I hope to have them on all 3 machines by mid sept. I have 2 other programmers/operators to worry about. They dont take to kindly to change all the time...have to get them up to speed first....I believe that they are going to the 4.0 class in nov.... we'll see how this plays out with them.
