Dazed and Confused

I have been battling this file long enough to have saved a considerable amount of time by just gnawing the shape with my teeth. This is a side of a medicine cabinet which is to look like draped fabric. I have done similar things in the past and am unsure if this is a result of the aging of the Aspir...

Re: bow tie carving

Re: Decimal Precision

That sounds like an interesting project but it would seem that you are searching for dimensional accuracy beyond what a miter saw is capable of. I have been a designer/builder of very high end furniture for almost 45 years and if you can stay within a 1/32” accuracy with standard small shop power to...

Re: Cutting Festool domino mortise holes

I routinely cut Domino mortises on cnc parts. Just draw out the profile and make some trial cuts to get the fit you desire and then save them. I just use a 1/4" bit so it is easy to vary the morose width for a proper fit. When I later pull up the files I do a quick trial cut to check the fit with th...

Re: Where did ny fonts go

Nevermind> Who knew that having "Single Line" checked instead of "Truetype" would do anything. The fog is lifting.

Randal, I was writing this as you were posting. Thanks.

Where did ny fonts go

Where did my fonts go? They were there a couple of weeks ago. Now the list (see screenshot) is populated by a few fonts each followed by 1l, 2l 3l, 4l which seems to mean one line, etc. The microsoft font folder seems to have a full font of fonts. What gives? Aspire 10.509.

Re: WHowe to search the manual

Specifically I was looking for some specific info on text spacing/kerning. I have cussed and screamed my way past my immediate need but this has always frustrated me. I have scrolled down the page that Randall posted before and if I am looking for something listed in the table of contents — great. I...

How to search the manual

How can I search help and/or the manual? I can access both but can never find a search function.

Re: Shelf pin holes along a curved path?

I actually had this problem a year ago and did it as Mike described. As with most situations trying to come up with an elegant and efficient method took much more time than just finally jumping into the inelegant and inefficient method.

Re: Aspire under Parallels on Macbook Pro

I have run Aspire on a Mac with Parallells since Aspire began. You can save files to either the Mac or Windows side. I have an alias of my Windows folder with my Aspire files on the sidebar on Finder Windows.

Re: inlaid golf ball

If I understand correctly you want to mount a golf ball so that half of it is proud. If the plaque hangs on a wall, why can’t you simply cut a pocket of the correct diameter and depth and secure it in a dab of construction adhesive. It will look the same as a dish when mounted.
