TOPIC: Signlab 9/10 Line style Bug

Signlab 9/10 Line style Bug 4 months 4 days ago #5717

Hi,

I'm currently using Signlab 9.1 (I've also tried this with Signlab 10 Trial with the same result) and there is a bug when changing the line style of objects (I'm using millimeters as unit):
If I e.g. draw a rectangle and set it to 600 x 600 mm with line style "no line" and then change it to "hair line", it will change the dimensions to 600.10 x 600.10 mm. If I change the unit to inches the object dimension remains the same if I change between "no line" and "hair line".
If I draw a rectangle with the line style set to "hair line" and make it 600 x 600 mm and then change it to "no line", the dimensions change to 599.90 x 599,90 mm.
The reason this bothers me is because I mainly work with importing DXF-files created in Autocad, and I have to change the line style every time I import a file.
You can also see that there is something wrong by zooming in on a corner of an object. When it's set to "no line" the selection markings are shown correctly on the object, but when it's set to "hair line" the selection markings are slightly bigger than the object.
(this wasn't a problem in Signlab 8 and earlier versions)

I hope someone can fix this.

regards /Per (Sweden)

Hello Per,
This can be fixed by adding a line the the CADlink.ini file.
Open Signlab, go to Help > About Signlab >press ALt +I
This should open the CADlink.ini
search for the heading [Preferences]
add a new line at any position under this heading as follows
UseOldThickness=1

Save and close the file.
Close and re-open Signlab.

Retry drawing an object and then add a hairline. The dimensions of the object should not now change.

Hello rayw,

That worked like a charm in Signlab 10, thank you!
I also tried this in 9.1 but that didn't eliminate the bug - perhaps another bit of code should do it?

Hello Per,
That fix worked for me in Signlab 9.1 too.

What build of Signlab have you installed? (Help > About Signlab > type R.
Build 8 is the latest.
