 Highlight lines when hovering the cursor over, SelectionPreview does't work
19-07-2013 07:04 . am   |   View his/her posts only
Hi, I´m new here and a new licensed ZWCad user. Migrated from AutoCad 2011, and I´m using ZWCad+ 2012 Pro, and one thing I´m missing (and for me is very useful when handling big drawings) is higlighting lines when hovering the cursor over a line, polygon, polylines, etc. Is there a setting or a command to get this feature activated? Or there´s no such feature in ZWCad 2012? Please help!

hi christ, thank you for choosing ZWCAD+ and welcome to the forum.
The variable SelectionPreview is used to enable highlighting lines when hovering the cursor, but this variable doesn't work currently, this is a problem of ZWCAD+ 2012, we will fix it in future version. (issue ID: 1019).

Before the problem is solved, pls use the former version ZWCAD 2012 as a temporary solution, the variable SelectionPreview work normally in this former version. You license is also valid for this version too. After ZWCAD+ 2012 is activated, ZWCAD 2012 on the same computer will be activated automatically.

Hi Jenny, thanks for your reply. Do you mean that ZWCad 2012 Professional demo I had installed before my ZWCad+ 2012 got installed now is fully functional with my license? Well, that´s good news!
As you said, there´s a future version on the way, when is it going to be out?

Bests regards

Christian

hi Christian, we just analysed this issue, and found that it relates to the kernel and it is very difficult. We do not have plan for the moment. Sorry about this.

That´s not good news. Maybe that feature is a very little one, but it´s just so useful when drawing complex plans. Is it possible that in next version 2013 it could be resolved?

yes, I can understand SelectionPreview can be useful when dealing with complex drawing, but it is hard to resolve, this bug is recorded in our data base, but it won't be fixed in the near future. The next version is ZWCAD+ 2014, we skip 2013. We have released ZWCAD+ 2014 Beta version, SelectionPreview is not available in this version, but we have many great new features, such as dynamic block, sync custom settings online, save dwg drawing in cloud storage, CUI, layer browser, smart selection and many more.
You can find the new features introduction and download link from this thread:
