Nest disappearing

Postby Keith Neal » Tue, Jun 01 2010, 12:33PM

Often I add a few panel cuts to my dxf. files in the control nesting to see if I may squeeze a few more pieces into the "unused areas" of the sheet(the dxf. files being countertops and pieces backsplash,buildup,ect).Lately when I go back to the load screen and delete the added panel pieces(If I don't like how they nest or can get a better yield cutting with saw) or a particular dxf. piece(deleting nothing else) and return to the nesting screen I get a message saying there is nothing loaded to nest and all of the other parts are gone from the load screen when I return there.This has only been happening since I've upgraded to the latest control nesting. Is there a way I can set up control nesting so it only deletes what I selected instead of everything else as well(upon selecting ok to go to nesting screen)??? :wall: -Keith

Keith,
How are you deleting the item(s) you don't want to cut?
You can select the line item you want to modify, hit enter, then change the quantity to '0' - then it will be removed, at least that has been successful for me.

I've submitted the issue of missing, previously loaded items when returning to LOAD screen, to our software engineering group for review. As far as deleting/removing existing objects in Load screen the methods listed should work fine to my knowledge.
