Measurements for a display door

Is there a way in LDE it get measurements on a display door? I can't seem to get the cursor to snap to any of the corners of the display door. This is for the customer to see.

Re: Printing From Line Drawing Editor

I've kinda given up trying to print from inside eCabs. I do a screen print then bring it into an image editor, crop it and save it. Nothing is lost during printing inside eCabs (dimensions, etc.) and no crashes.

Nesting orientation issue?

I have a drawer box that I made. In the settings I've specified that I want the grain orientation of the front and back to be up and down (rotate 90 degrees in settings). It is displayed properly in the dbx editor. However, when I go to nest the cabinet the orientation of the dbx front and back are ...

Resizing cabinet to zero when placing in room design

I am trying to place a cabinet between two cabinets, that according to eCabs, are 18.5" apart. The cabinet I'm trying to insert is 18" wide. I get the resulting dialog box stating the cabinet is going to be resized to 0. Not sure why an 18" cabinet needs to be resized to 0 to fit into...

Re: Uh Oh on 6.1.3 update

Holy crap! That's a lot of work to recreate everything and have to do all the PE editing again.

Uh Oh on 6.1.3 update

Not sure whats going on with this cabinet but I can't make any changes to it since I upgraded to 6.1.3. I could make all the changes I wanted in 6.1.2.

Went in to delete a shelf and a partition. Clicked on Main and started getting errors.

Please help!! :wall:

Re: Adding shelf deletes a drawer box

Thanks Scott.

I just thought it kinda non-intuitive that adding a shelf would remove a drawer box. Like you said, not sure if this is the way it's designed to work or not.

Adding shelf deletes a drawer box

In the attached cabinet, I had a drawer placed just above the fixed shelf in the middle of the cabinet. I went into shelf editor to add adjustable shelves in the space above the drawer and the drawer was removed from the cabinet. Went back to Main editor and the drawer was in fact gone. Went back to...

Re: Gotta just love the crashes

You're right, edit, save, edit, save. Very time consuming with bigger jobs loaded up. I would estimate in an hour worth of work I'm using up about 10-15 minutes watching the hour class spin as I go from editors to the room layout and save, back to editors, back to room layout and save. :|

Gotta just love the crashes

In CM and for no reason eCabs just crashes and looses all the changes I've made. How about a background AUTO-SAVE feature that will save your project at intervals set by the user. I'm getting tired of doing all the edits in a cabinet and loosing them for no reason. Very annoying and WASTE of time ha...

Stretcher position issue

Not sure what is happening here. I've set INSET 1 for both the center left-right stretchers in the attached cabinet (jpg also attached) at 13.25". However, when you view it, they are not at the same position. Take cabinet into faceframe editor and you can see the difference their position. This...

Re: Line Drawing Editor

I've learned to just do a screen print then bring the screen capture into a graphics program, crop away what you don't want and print. Printing from LDE has been sketchy as long as I've used eCabs (2009).

Re: Generating CNC file

Ah. Thank you very much. I guess I didn't look at the screen close enough. Just wondering, is there a reason for the separate CNC button, for a single cabinet, versus the other CNC button on the toolbar?

Generating CNC file

How come I need to put a single cabinet in a batch before I can create a CNC file for it? Why can't I be in cabinet editor mode with my cabinet, click on the CNC button and generate the file? Just wondering.

Re: line drawing editor-no measurements

I've found that the way to get drawings with everything in tact is to do a screen print (Alt + Print Screen) then bring that into something like Paint and save it as a jpg/ Doing photo export from eCabs has not been successful for me.
