Moving all Vectors on a 2 sided job (Aspire V9)

Postby hooked » Thu Aug 03, 2017 11:25 pm

I think I'm missing something really simple here. I want to select all vectors on both sides of a two sided job and move them. I'm sure there will be a process to do this but I cant seem to easily achieve it. Help appreciated.

I'll be watching this thread, I haven't found a way to move vectors on both sides at once either.

One way would be to right click on the vectors on whatever "side" you're working on and then select "move to other side".
At that point you can move all vectors to a new layer.

The only thing I'd add to that is before moving the vectors to the other side would be to group them after selection. This would prevent, or help prevent, mixing the vectors of the two sides.

Good work around Michael.

There is no 'official ' way to move vectors on both sides yet, but we're aware that it would be useful. It's yet to be decided how to do that without the confusion and potential errors arising from having vectors / components that you can't see selected.

Your input is always welcome of course

Thanks for the information Mohamed.

If you have double sided view toggled on all vectors on the opposite side show in blue. Could you also have the components show in blue? Then in the tool windows for the Transform Object section of the Drawing tab have a check box to transform both sides? While I'm wishing, it would be nice to be able to select one, multiple or all vectors/components from the opposite side.

Just my two cents.

Well, now that I know that there is no simple key stroke, I just move the vectors on each side the same set amount. Would be great to see a SELECT ALL VECTORS - BOTH SIDES option available within the software.
