 Disappearing near the screen edge

I have been using ZWCAD trial for 2 weeks now and have mentioned a few "Issues" I have come across.
At the risk of seeming annoying or picky I will mention a small detail which is only a little frustrating.
It seems to me that any blocks that have perfectly vertical and/or horizontal lines and/or concentric circles will "Breakup" and seem to become invisible when any part of a vertical or horizontal line or outer circle cross the edge of the screen or viewport.
The parts of the line that are still on-screen will vanish. They are still actually there and I can "Snap"to them, but they become invisible.
This ONLY happens with Blocks. NOT regular lines etc.
And then, ONLY blocks with Vertical or Horizontal lines and it seems to be affecting Blocks which contain concentric circles also. The outermost circle will disappear as it crosses the window edge or viewport edge followed by the smaller circles as they cross the edge also.

I am running a dual monitor setup and it does not occur when moving/panning across the two screens.

Does anyone else experience this? or is it just my setup.?

As always, any insight into this will be appreciated

Dear Damo,

Nice to see you again!
About this block disapperance issue, it's do exist in former ZWCAD. But it has been fixed now in the latest version. I think you must havn't update it, right?

Here is the download link for this new version:
http://download.zwcad.com/en/Special/20100730/ZWCAD2010EngWeb_0730.msi
It's a full installation version.

Thanks!

Thank you Daniel. I'm glad it wasn't just my system behaving badly.

In my existing install, I clicked Help / About and got this version number .. 2010.06.30(14725.292)
Is it possible to do incremental update within the program interface?
Or just download and reinstall?
Uninstall the old version first?

2010-0730 is evidently a newer file.

I will try the newer version and let you know.

Hi Daniel,


Since I updated to 2010.05.31 (14725.292) I'm also experiencing disappearing lines in my drawing template block when I zoom in near my border. I did not have this problem before the patch.
This is the update I downloaded <ZWCAD2010EngWeb> 142,209kb
The update you just posted <ZWCAD2010EngWeb_0730> 142,240kb

Is this an update to 14725.292?
Thanks.

Thank you ZWCAD People... (and Daniel)

I installed the above-posted later version. So far it seems good..!
No recurring issues relating the the thread topic.

(The updated setup installed itself completely fresh. i.e. no custom settings, etc, remained. *:Throws hands up in despair...Groan:*) lol

All good .. Thanks again guys/girls.

Hi Damo,

That's true if you install the new version of ZWCAD, by which you may lose your settings. So next time when you reinstall it , you'd better export your customize settings out first, and import it back into your new ZWCAD.

Have a nice day~
