What is hotter than the weather in Germany at the moment? The new TOTM for June, of course. It is a ridiculously simple one this month, but extremely useful at times, especially for some of the newer users.
The status bar guides you step by step through each operation in Palette CAD. Once you have started an operation, the bar at the bottom left of the screen displays the name of the current operation and the program's expected input.
Using the example above, after the operation "Move" (v) is started, the status bar displays the following:
"L:" and "R:" refer to the left and right mouse buttons. This information is displayed for all editing and insertion operations.
You are looking for a reference point from which to move the selected object. If this is selected by a left mouse button click, the target point at which the object is to be moved is expected and the bar changes as follows:
If the target point is also selected, the object is moved and the operation is terminated.
Piece of cake, right! Now try out some of the other operations and see what fun there is to be had.
