The Case of the Vanishing Fence Cut Tool

Postby jcarcht » Tue Jan 23, 2018 6:22 pm

OK, so somewhere in the PowerCadd updates, the Fence Cut tool vanished- or at least I don't see it in my updated tool set. This was a valuable tool as it allowed me to crop out a drawing, say to limit the boundaries of a detail to a defined rectangle. Can someone give some insight as to what happened to this tool and why it was removed from the tool set? TIA.

John,

Many of the PowerCADD tools are loaded separately, which I think goes back to the days when the computer’s memory was limited. So maybe check the Loader to see if this is not checked.
