      Also, if you have the right computer configuration, it's also quite stable.

      Maybe it's just the cheap Chinese keyboards. You'll have to ask Goodluck how his new keyboard is working out.

          Confused

          Maybe its just me but there seems to be alot of negative responses to PCDMIS. My back ground was with Apogee (Metrolog) and QC5000. I quit my job to learn PCDMIS 2 years ago and I love it. Most of my issues have been operator error. I have convinced several local shops to purchase or retrofit there "junk" to PCDMIS. I have been able to use an offline seat to make universal programs for 6 different CMM's with minimal issues. Like I said early, I love this software.

            And one or two extra SCROLL LOCK buttons if you are going to be a Pcdmis User

              No one is (raelly) saying that Pcdmis is junk, it just that a lot of us have been using it for decades and we have gotten tired of seeing things that worked before turned into bugs and not getting fixed. For example, clearance planes worked great, until V3.5, then sometimes (not always, but sometimes, and NOT feature dependant) the 'up' move would get ignored by Pcdmis cause the head to try to move on a slant to the c-p height above the next point. Always great for the head, let me tell you!

              Or, how about when they 'fixed' edge points with a new version, when you went to mirror OR use paste w/ pattern, the surface vector stayed the same as it was (in the feature in the edit window) but it ran like it DID get mirrored, but then the comping was done to the shown surface vector! It's little things that get us long time users and those same little thing just never seem to go away.

              Or, let's see, we all have been complaining about the way the RTF (and PDF) reports have looked, no margin adjustments, Pcdmis's 'column' width being way too much (the tolerance col width was set for +/- 100,000.000) so instead of fixing it, they dump it onto us with the 'new' template system.

                  I was taught 3.7mr2 but this did not have a translator for the CAD. 4.1 seems to work great for me since every program I make requires some type of scanning procedure and I work off line. I do understand your frustation with upgrades that interfere with your normal procedures.

                    Actually, Paul(a), the scroll-lock issue was with EXCEL, not Pcdmis!

                      I said a Pcdmis user, and thats who had the problem Not mentioning any names. GL Excel is kinda like alcohol, somehow it all can be related back to the software

                        BUT, you can be an EXCEL user and not a Pcdmis user. Or, are you trying to imply that SOME Pcdmis users are inept at using Excel?

                          If you see that often enough you will begin to understand. Pc-Dmis is great stuff. (The good versions anyway). But there have been a lot of not so wonderful versions in the last few years. I must say in the last year or so They do seem to be making a real effort to listen and respond to our complaints. The guy called me just last week and I agreed he could put me in the "happy camper" column, but I also pleaded to not see 5.0 before there was solid version of 4.x out there.
