The object color is set in the Inspector -> Attributes tab. When an object is in a layer that has a set color the layer color has precedence over the object color and it should be displayed as the layer color. Symbols are brought in as group objects and it looks like there is a little bug here where the group color does not adopt the layer color. The fix here is to ungroup then re-group the symbol and it will then follow the layer color.

Thanks for finding that.

Yep, that isn't allowed anymore, not sure when it stopped but V9 won't allow it either. After clicking the End Reference point press the "Tab" key and enter the exact amount in the "Distance" data box. To not use the mouse at all, try the "Linear Duplicate" tool.

I notice there are a few different document file name suffixes that dont seem to e related to any characteristic of the documents themselves.
What extensions are you seeing?

Iím familiar with the Open With options.

Do you mean the options associated with the dock icon? Then no. I was referring to using the Open button under the File menu. If double-clicking on a drawing file to launch TC and open the file at the same time is not part of your workflow then updating the "Open With" under "File Info" won't be needed. If you are referring to the "Open With" under the finder "File" menu then you can directly select the needed version.

The shortcuts not working after an hour or so makes no sense to me, and I have no idea what that could be.

I've not been able to repeat it with any kind of predictability, but double clicking a document without the application open sometimes leads to that dialog error. 
Problems / ProblemsAssigning Layer and Color to Symbols
« Last post by Henry J. on December 30, 2017, 06:05:53 PM »
When I drag a 2d symbol onto my drawing (in this case, a "blind tap") I can change the layer, but I haven't been able to change the color of the symbol to the color appropriate to that layer.  (In my personal set of CAD habits, every drawing has a layer named "hidden" which is always red.)

Can you tell me how to do this?  How to change the color of a symbol?

Problems / Using option+enter to copy object removed?
« Last post by jolbas on December 30, 2017, 03:01:55 PM »
I just upgraded from V7 to V10 and miss the possibility to copy objects by pressing Option+Enter while in the data entry fields of the translate tool. Is this a bug or has it been removed for a reason? And are there any other simple way to make a copy a certain distance from the original without using tho mouse?
