Hi guys n gals.
Been having probs with PowerSHAPE 2016 (CR 16.1.26).
When in a trimming mode, say I'm working on one surface, then as I unblank, all the other surfs that come up (which takes ages) with the pcurves highlighted I have to the click anywhere with no surfs so nothing is selected, then they all go back to the original state.
It never used to do this on previous versions of PowerShape.
See a quick pic attached.

Yes, this was a fairly recent change. Until then the trim editor would close if there were multiple surfaces selected. The slow re-draw was fixed in SP1. Could you please install the most recent update and let us know if that makes things better.

Thanks.

Hi downloaded and installed the latest patch.
(PowerShape 2016 (SP5 CR 16.1.34) (64-bit)

And it still does the same!!

Could this be sorted out ASAP, it's a right pain in the rear end, and it's adding more and more time to our modelling, like I said, never used to do it before.

Many thanks,
Neil

You just need to turn off Trim region editing before unblanking, you can now do this without having a surface selected which you couldn't before. It also means that you can swap from a single surface to multiple surfaces, which again you could do previously.

Hi, I know that's what I've been doing, but every now and then I forget, and I have to sit and wait for all the surfaces to load up with all boundaries/pcurves on show, this particular job, i've got over 9000 surfaces, so takes time for them all to load, then even for me to unselect them, it takes an age. Maybe I could make a macro that would unselect the surfs/turn off trim region/then unblank?

Any help on this would be good too?

Cheers!!

Arrgghh this is still doing my head in.
I've created a macro to unselect the surfs before unblanking, but quite a few times a day i'm forgetting to use my actual macro and right clicking in the screen to unblank, can I divert the right click unblank button to run my macro instead???

This is adding more and more time onto our jobs - previously wasn't even there before - so why Delcam felt the urge to alter this is beyond me?!

I wouldn't know how to redirect the right click menu but what about redirecting the Ctrl+L keyboard shortcut to run your macro which switches off the pcurver editor and then unblanks.
