Morning David et al, have sent 5 drgs to you for 'analysis'. Agreed, desktop fonts would be of use; although could more be done to have easier text editing then as when annotating drgs? It is a pain to edit one line at a time. Especially when dealing with technical specs. Simple add-ons could include Line returns and Ctrl-U for delete (on the page, not the editing box).

Re the curves. Can !Draw's curve engine be hacked/imported (as in Procad)? At the mo, if I want a curve I convert the drg to DXF, load into Draw, add curve (by eye/grid, not really sceintifically accurate), convert Drawfile into DXF, reload in RiscCAD. It works, clumsily, and then you can imagine what haopens when it needs editing!!!!

As you might have guessed, I have a list as long as my arm when it comes to additional tools. So if you get bored, let me know.

  • RISC OS 5 pictured running on ARM Cortex-A8 kit
    Picture exclusive - This grainy photograph shows a port of RISC OS 5, sourced from the RISC OS Open project, running on a Beagleboard - a device powered by a 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor with a built-in graphics chip. The port, developed by Jeffrey Lee with help from Uwe Kall and ROOL staff, is seen as a major breakthrough for the shared-source project as it proves the OS can be ported to new hardware without the need for a large team of engineers.
