Hello Chris

What you are describing above can be done.

I often have the requirement hat an entity needs to be copied and then
repeated OR the identical move repeated on other objects. So, iof this is
what you are asking here are the steps.

Highlight the entity to be copied use the about point and a snap mode (Lock
also) to relocate the entity using [Ctrl] key.

After this the
  • key can be used to repeat the move and copy OR select
    another entity and hit
  • and the identical transormation will occour.

    Until another move is completed the
  • will remain.

    Ya,

    dia/2.....

    That does get old after 20 or so holes... Think of us poor Machine
    designers ! We don't use bubble gum to hold stuff together! We use a lot
    of holes and then BOLT things together.

    Just gimme the stupid DIAMETER box already !

    be happy,

    I agree, radius is okay for corners etc, but when it comes to doing bolt
    holes just about everyone I know works in dia's. Mind you it doesn't affect
    me that much 'cause I created a (sorry for about the bad pun comming...)
    (w)hole load of symbols for standard holes, that way whenever specifiying a
    hole, it is always consistent with previous designs. Also it means that I
    don't have to remember all our standard over-sizing rules.

    Anway, what's wrong with a bit of bubble gum holding stuff together. Pilots
    used to repair bullet holes in their fuel tanks with some gum and the gum
    wrapper!

    Ya, thats why I didn't create any symbols for holes. Usually I have to work with
    an existing part first. So you measure it and make it on the fly.

    da.da.da /2 enter da.da.da /2 enter da.da.da /2 enter da.da.da /2 enter

    you get the idea.........

    I think when your in the sky you'll do anything to be able to walk on ground
    again if your in trouble. heck, I betcha I could come up with SPIT thick enough
    if the situation required it !

    Okay, you basic Enigma dabblers,
    are you trying to find the mysterious code to find
    the unanswered question of the 12 corrected items in R8
    or Greig ?nekcwuzfua nehcseornroD ehcilnneam sad mu

    (Thought I add some of the original WWII problems but
    was very careful not to use "V"8 to provoke bad memories
    for Graham and Stephen and implying a similar attempt
    by the new release.
    It is bad enough to see V2 being used here with nostalgia
    without impunity and without any sense of history.)
