I would like to propose a change to this list so that my favorite option is at the top, instead of the option there now that I cannot imagine anyone else uses. Followed closely by the bottom three on that list.
And who still uses RSS feeds?
Bonjour à tous,
Dans le forum français AutoCAD, les questions portent parfois sur un AutoCAD métier en particulier mais la personne qui poste le message ne précise pas qu'elle travaille avec un AutoCAD métier. Par conséquent, comme on ne connaît pas forcement tous les AutoCADs on perd parfois du temps à chercher une solution qui ne fonctionnera pas sur un AutoCAD particulier ou il existe justement une solution propre à l'AutoCAD en question.
De ce fait, serait-il possible, lorsqu'on ouvre un nouveau topic, d'ajouter une sous catégorie avec une liste déroulante pour préciser de quel AutoCAD il s'agit.
Enter post title
Sous catégorie : AutoCAD
AutoCAD Civil 3D
AutoCAD MAP 3D
Les titres des post seraient plus clairs et plus ciblés.
This may be a great idea and it may not -- I'm looking for honest feedback.
I could see it potentially being annoying... but at the same time, I think there's great value in it.
Often times I see a post with 20 or 30, or even 50 or 100 or more votes on it, and there's a comment saying "Why is this really necessary?" or "What do you think about this finer detail?" .... and then nothing. No responses. Just internet crickets.
Most likely those 20 or 100 or more people don't even know that their valuable opinion has been sought. If they had commented, they would have been notified; but since they only voted, they weren't notified. This is unfortunate.
I would like to think that when people vote for an Idea, they're doing so because they really like it and believe in it (just as much as if they had commented), and they would jump at the chance to help defend, validate, develop, and mature the idea into all they'd like it to be, if they knew such feedback was being asked for.
So that's why I'm proposing this Idea. I could see this being particularly useful once a true notification system is implemented.
Yes, this could be annoying for those who spam-vote on lots of Ideas but don't want to stay update on them. But honestly, my opinion... if someone doesn't care enough about an Idea to hear development on it and even provide their own input, they probably shouldn't have voted in the first place This might be a great way to encourage people to only vote on Ideas they really care about.
That being said, this "automatic subscription" could be implemented in a number of ways.
That's all I have. Would love to hear people's thoughts on this one.
And if you vote and want to stay in the loop on future discussion... don't forget to subscribe
PLEASE! Having to scroll through ten pages of ideas just to find the one that has a new comment is insane and takes way too long. Is there no better way?
In the Ideas forum, when Ideas are merged together, we sometimes have comments from 2, 3, maybe even 4 or 5 original conversations all mixed together in the same thread, with no indication of which comments were originally part of the same conversation. This makes it difficult if not impossible to follow the conversation(s).
There should be some indication of which Idea each comment was originally on. Maybe group the comments for each duplicate that was merged in, separately from the comments on the Master idea. Or add a "RE: [Original idea title] by [Original idea author]" above each comment so we know which thread the comment was originally on.
In a nutshell: would be helpful to have fourth tab in community forums: "Unsolved". It would be beneficial for community members to see topics which are not only unanswered but also unsolved.
Why? Because sometimes discussion could be long without correct answer. It will disappear from "Unanswered" tab and will be lost somewhere in forum.
"Unsolved" tab unlike "Unanswered" will hold threads as long as they are not solved. It would be beneficial for those who ask to be easily seen for professional members. For them too: they can gain kudos and solutions faster.
I would like to be able to filter out the posts that are in languages I do not understand. My profile asks what my preferred language(s) are, so this should link back to the forums; I shouldn't see posts in French if I don't have French in my profile. This could also be handled with a forum filter that would allow users to check/uncheck languages shown. This will make everyone's time spent in the forums more productive.
Supporting 24 hour time format would make it more understandable for more people (like me ;o)
In the "my settings" I can change the date display to a more common format for my country but not the time format.

BTW: 24 hr ist the standart ISO format for time. (yyyy-MM-dd is ISO std. for date that is supported)
Only at United States, and a handful of other countries[the 12-hour-clock is still dominant.

It would benefit all users, new and experienced alike, if the Email they receive from a post they follow (or create) let then know in very big red letters that they cannot attach files if they choose to respond to replies by email (in their email client) that request them to do so.
And no faint gray / pale blue letters either :)
Just make it clear they need to come back to the website to post files.
When the mods mark a thread as sticky (so that the thread stays at the top of the list for all users), it has a visual style that is different from other "non-sticky" threads.
Individual users have the option, on a per-thread basis, to "Float this topic to the top". But that just makes it look just like the other sticky threads.
I would find it useful if my own "floated" threads are visually different from the others. They are currently all a shade of blue. Maybe the user-floated threads could be a shade of grey. This way it should still fit within your color scheme.
It should be useful to have a dedicated space for PowerMILL macros as we had on the Delcam forum.
It will be simpler to build a knowledge base apart from the ongoing discussion on the product or support requests.
Actually we are unable to add our "PowerMill" ideas to the idea area because we can´t select PowerMill from the "Product" and "Board" Selection.
We Need PowerMill inside the Programm specific Idea area.
I often come across threads where the OP's question was resolved (sometimes the OP even replies and says so) but the OP never marks the appropriate post(s) as the solution.
It would greatly increase the percentage of resolved posts, and help those coming to such threads for answers, if the community could "nominate" certain posts as providing a solution.
If the nominations for a post reach a certain level, the post could perhaps be automatically marked as the solution, or at least notify the moderators and let them decide to mark the solution if they wish. I've seen the moderators do so before, but building in a system like this would allow them to do so much more often and easily.
Whether the system was automated or just notified the moderators, I think it would greatly improve the quality and usefulness of the forums.
To help encourage users (especially first time users) to include informative images with their posts, please consider adding the ability to drag+drop images right into the post editor, without having to open secondary windows or pop-ups.
If you are not sure what I'm talking about, GMail supports this, an example below.
Please add URL to post in plane text letter "Your answer ... accepted as a solution!". Without this URL it is difficult to find topic/post, which was accepted as solution.
Instead of having attachments be "for eternity", which leads to many of us in this age of privacy concerns limit sharing of actual DWG files, I would like to propose that control be given to the user for how long a file may be available for download/access.
This can be a per-attachment setting or an overall user profile setting in the forums.
If possible, even limit the number for downloads, but I'm flexible on this wish. See screenshot for the concept as available on many FTP sites
When we suspect there is a spammer on this board we should have the ability to report them so they are deleted.
As far as I know now there is nothing to currently do that.
When we paste a URL into the text editor will cause it to open in a new tab, but using the default with the link tool it will open in the current tab.
Many users don't change the 'target' in the link tool to open in a new tab, and does not make sense to reopen the OP to continue reading/reply.
I'd like to propose to change the link tool default to 'Open in a new page'.
