    Thank you  for a very full instruction Jack.  Yes, like you say there are a few items that won’t rotate. No big deal, as I most commonly do dims in worksheet mode anyway and furniture items etc don’t feature big in my drafting. I did try rotating my model last week and nothing happened using the exact method you suggest which included the warning

    First you must Turn Off , ‘ Select elements on current location only….’

    but it did nothing.

    My screen doesn’t always show the result of an action until I zoom in then out with the mouse scroll to refresh the screen. So I Don’t know what that’s about.  Anyway I gave up on it.  This latest Dell laptop doesn’t seem to have the grunt of previous machines that I’ve had, and things happen a bit slower.

    Anyway, your method worked a treat.

    Have you updated your video card recently. This is a quick and simple fix for slow running worksheets as least

    Thanks guys. I saved the corrupted file as a new .bld and it worked.

    If you select ‘spline’ it will stay selected for the session, but will default back to straight next time you open

     I successfully used the sketchup warehouse method. Thanks everyone for your input. When the need arises again I’ll try the magenta method.  I couldn’t get it to work for me last time

    Hi Merv. Thanks. You’d think it was simple, but I mustve been hitting the far left (green tick) column!

    would it be the .bkp file in the same directory as drawing?

     Thanks Jack and Merv.
    Merv, is that a 3d staircase in your pic? That’s what I want. I know what you mean about randomly throwing numbers in. More’s the pity if it works out and can’t remember what you fluked!

    capture 2 shows what I can do in env. I was hoping to be able to get the treads to have a zero length around the winder

     In my opnion, trades people need something quick and uncomplex on plans to read directions. Arial is as good as any font to start with. I don’t like to disagree with my aussie colleague, but serif is for books.

    “Images that have been imported into Envisioneer are now compressed so they don’t inflate your file size. This will help reduce lag in a model that has incorporated a larger image files, increasing your productivity.”
    Generally importing images into worksheet is what I think it is about. I did a comparison test between v12 and13 with same images inserted. I have to eat humble pie and report that the v12 drawing ended up double the filesize of the v13 drawing. I am unsure why my original ‘blowout ‘ happened.

    Thanks for your insights and, sorry for my late reply. Notification replies didn’t arrive in my inbox.
    My cure for something smaller ended up with a tablet (!!). I just needed something that handles most of the business side and and lets me read news etc. where ever
    It’s a bit like a mate of mine says about his love of motorbikes. How do you pick the best one? You really need to get one for the road, one for the dirt and one for the track. Not a bad idea really. Except that it wouldn’t get too far in the family finance dept.

    Hi Frank. Is the roof that you describe different from the pictures? Can you draw a complete planview in pencil outlining which is exst and which is proposed and post it? And, have you found out what is on the client’s remote controller yet?
    Cheers, Chris
