Problems / Re: Line Styles
« Last post by Chris2017 on August 23, 2018, 01:21:10 AM »
Hi Mitch, yes, now I have been able to do the same with that drawing.  I have another drawing with where I could only remove the first 2 custom styles and then it would reveal the name of any more styles (even though it showed a change in colour and pattern) so would not delete any more custom styles.  I upgraded last year to a more modern version of V7 De Luxe - V7.5.3 (build1109), and I think there must be a bug in there as I get the one or two other odd 'funnies'.  I am still on macOS Sierra and will need to update to V10 I guess to go to macOS High Sierra, so hopefully the bug will go then. 

Thanks for all your help - much appreciated,

Chris

Chris,

I see that your drawing was created in V9 deluxe. I don't have Deluxe but I do have V9 Pro, so using that, I was able to delete all the custom line styles. I then saved the file and re-opened it to verify that the custom styles were gone. My screenshot is of the saved file re-opened to show the custom styles are gone. If you are still using V9 Deluxe there might be a bug in that version or have you upgraded to a newer version which may have a bug?

And even maybe the drawing.  No, I don't have any 3rd party aero files on my computer, to my knowledge!
This is the drawing that the screen shot came from

Mitch - I wouldn't know a "startup.dat" file if it hit me in the face let alone make one.

Hopefully I can add a screen shot:

Chris,

Did you make a "startup.dat" file? There is a third party aero package, did you install that? Could you post a screenshot of your line styles or a drawing that has the line styles for me to look at? I would like to dig into it to see what is going on.

Enjoy

Hi Mitch,

That's bizarre, as I must have got the aero linestyles from somewhere.  Ho hummm, must be one of those computer mysteries that are placed there to trap us un-computer-savvy oldies, thanks for your advice and info anyway,

I don't know of any line style file or folder, there is a pattern file that can be modified. To change that go to the Applications folder and right-click on the TC Icon. Click on "Show package contents", double-click on "Contents", "Resources", then "Environ". Open CADD.LIN file in a text editor and make any changes there and save it. As soon as you make the first change you will be told you don't own the file and must edit a duplicate. Click on duplicate and make the changes, save this to your desktop and close the original and duplicate files. Drag your new file into the Environ folder and replace it, you will need your system admin password to do this.

Enjoy

Hi Mitch, sorry, been away for a couple of days.  All that you said makes perfect sense, so I can go on that.

However, I must have loaded the aero linestyles from somewhere within TurboCad, but I can't see where, don't have a clue.  I bet there are other sets of linestyes there too - if only I could find them?  In Applications I did a control-click on the TurboCad app to show contents, but didn't see it there, so at a loss to figure where it might be.

Can you point me in the right direction please?

H Mitch,

Apologies for the tardy response, I've only just got back to it.

Thanks for the tip - that worked a treat!

Is there an import function that will read revit files?

No, export from Revit as dwg/dxf.
