Re: Export as Grayscale Bitmap question

I'm guessing it was in issue with the earlier versions then which was fixed later on as it's not doing it in V10.

Re: Tool Database

Not sure if the migrate works from Desktop to Pro but try going to the Help menu and running the Migrate option. Otherwise the simplest way is to go to Desktop, open the database and export the tools you want. You can then import them into Pro. You can also copy the database at the Windows level but...

Re: Export as Grayscale Bitmap question

Which version are you using? I've just exported a 16 bit tiff to test this and the background is solid black.

With the new laser module announced yesterday you'll be able to do this directly in Aspire with no need to export.

Re: "Do Separate Last Pass" leaving a ridge

When is the last time you adjusted the gears on the racks on all the axis? I had exactly the same issue with my ShopBot a few years ago when I started it using a lot more than I had before.

Re: 10.5 is COMING SOON - Watch this space

Make sure you include being able to nest on a drop, and the remainder of the nest on full sheets. Something that is a major major need. I've asked for that a few times over the years. There's quite a few things I would like to have in nesting but nesting programs that do all the things I want cost ...

Re: chamfer gadget version 1.4

It's an error. It was supposed to have been added before V9 (1.1) but it's never worked. It's been raised a few times in the gadgets forum. An alternative solution is coming.

Re: Drive Stand - 3D Print

Main reason I bought a Zortrax (three years ago now) was because it just works. Many people have said I'm mad because of the price of it but I bought a 3D printer to print things not to tinker about with the printer itself. Never had a failed print and everything always comes out perfectly with just...

Re: Font issue

Look for the font name without the @. They are all East Asian language fonts which display text vertically for their language characters.

That's what I mean by most software doesn't display them the way Vectric does with the @ but they are there.

Re: Editing a post processor, duplicate post processor name.

I use EditPlus for everything (the editor in my screenshots above) and it's great. Looks like the Visual Studio editor works in a similar way to the graphics package I use (Xara) in that it will open with the same files used previously along with changes even if they haven't been saved. One clue tha...

Re: Font issue

Those are standard Windows fonts as well as far as I'm aware. They're definitely on computers I have that have never had Vectric software installed. I think it's just that most software doesn't show them in the vertical mode as that's more typically used with different language settings.

Re: Editing a post processor, duplicate post processor name.

Those files have different names but the POST_NAME is still the same.
