    • 4 - Draw Commands KASEMAKE Identify the first line by picking a point close to the required element. The element which is nearest to this point will now be drawn in the selection colour. If the selected line is not the correct one because two or more elements have been drawn close together, choose Select Next from the pop-up menu accessible with the right hand mouse button. The KASEMAKE system will now search for another line close to the given point and select it if the search is successful. If the selected element is not correct and you wish to start the command again, choose Reset from the pop-up menu accessible with the right hand mouse button. Once the line is correctly identified, you will be prompted to mark the second line. Identify it in the same way. Once the second line is selected, a fillet will be drawn in the selection colour between the two lines and passing through the current cursor position which is used to define the radius. Move the cursor and the fillet will rubber band to reflect the new cursor position. Once the correct fillet is displayed, mark the point. The fillet will now be drawn in the current ground and the lines will be trimmed back to the fillet end points as applicable. 3 TrueType Command TrueType Menu Draw > TrueType Toolbar Button: Main Toolbar The truetype text command allows you to annotate your design with truetype text. Improvements have been made to the way truetype text is handled throughout KASEMAKE. It is easier to work with truetype text as you can now click anywhere within the string to identify it.

This can be useful where for example an element is to be bridged. KASEMAKE will automatically split all design elements at their intersection points with other drawing elements replacing the single element with individual sections. If there are no intersections the element will be unchanged. Activate the command. The KASEMAKE system will now process each element in the design determining any intersection points with all the other elements in the design. The element will then be divided at each intersection point found and the single element replaced with an element for each section.

Activate the command to toggle its enabled / disabled state. When enabled all input for the drawing area will be from the digitiser. The mouse will still be available for selecting commands from menus and toolbars and for interacting with dialogs. When digitiser mode is disabled input for the drawing area will revert back to the mouse. 11.2 Setup... Command Setup... Menu Tools->Digitiser->Setup... Toolbar Button: Not available The Setup... command allows you to define a specific area of the digitiser as a working area rather than the entire digitiser. This is useful when you want to work only within a small part of the digitiser or where a menu is being used. Once the area is defined, this is the area that will be utilised by the Zoom->Digitiser command. Activate the Setup... command. The Digitiser Setup dialog is displayed:- There are three ways to specify the section of the digitiser you wish to be the working area. • You can enter values directly by typing in each box or with the aid of the arrows to scroll.

    • Digitiser Sub-Menu KASEMAKE 11.4 Adjust Alignment. Command Adjust Alignment Menu Tools->Digitiser->Adjust Alignment Toolbar Button: Not available Digitisers provide a useful way of inputting existing designs by placing the drawing onto the digitiser and inputting 1:1 directly from the drawing. However, it is unlikely that a design will be exactly straight when positioned on the digitiser. The Adjust Alignment command allows you to define a horizontal or vertical line from the design you wish to digitise to enable KASEMAKE to determine an adjustment to apply to points to compensate for any misplacement and ensure vertical and horizontal lines are digitised as such. Activate the Adjust Alignment command. You will now be prompted Mark First Reference Point. Move the digitiser puck so that the cross hair is at the beginning of a suitable horizontal or vertical line and click with button 1 to define that point. Now you will be prompted Mark Second Reference Point. Mark the other end of the line using the digitiser puck. KASEMAKE will now calculate a suitable adjustment to apply to all subsequent points based on the given line being horizontal / vertical. 11.5 Reset Alignment. Command Reset Alignment Menu Tools->Digitiser->Reset Alignment Toolbar Button: Not available The Reset Alignment command cancels any adjustment adopted by KASEMAKE following the Adjust Alignment command. Simply activate this command and any alignment will be removed so all future points will be input as is. 11.6 Menu Setup... Command Menu Setup... Menu Tools->Digitiser->Menu Setup... Toolbar Button: Not available The Menu Setup... command allows you to define a menu of commands which can be accessed through the digitiser. The menu is defined as one or more rows of menu cells. Each menu cell is of a given size and can have a specific command assigned to it. First ensure the digitiser is connected and switched on. Activate the Menu Setup... command. The Digitiser Menu Setup... command will now be displayed:- KASEMAKE - Update Guide Release 8.5 © AG/CAD Limited 2008 Page 8-21

    • KASEMAKE 11 - Zoom Commands 1 Quickzoom Command Quickzoom Menu Zoom->Quickzoom Toolbar Button: Standard Toolbar The Quickzoom command is a temporary single use command. It allows you to zoom into an area of a design without breaking out of the current command. Although the Quickzoom command is primarily for zooming into a design, it has now been adapted to allow for a quick zoom out by a factor of 2. Activate the Quickzoom command. The current command is frozen and the Quickzoom command initiated. To achieve a zoom out, first hold down the Shift key. The cursor should change from a magnifying glass with a + symbol to a magnifying glass with a - symbol to confirm that a zoom out is to be carried out. You now need to identify two points. This is done in one of two ways depending on the value selected for quickzoom in preferences. Original Whilst holding down the Shift key, identify both points by double clicking the left mouse but- ton. Click & Drag If this option is set, hold down the Shift key and click and release the left mouse button to define both points. In both cases, the window size will now increase by a factor of 2 causing the drawing to pan out around the given cursor position. The original command will now be restored, at the point where you called Quickzoom, ready for you to complete any further steps. 2 Zoom Digitiser Command Zoom Digitiser Menu Zoom->Digitiser Toolbar Button: Not available The Zoom Digitiser command works in conjunction with the Tools->Digitiser Setup... command which allows you to define a specific area of the digitiser as a working area rather than the entire digitiser. Once an area is defined with the Tools->Digitiser Setup... command, activate the Zoom- >Digitiser command to zoom the on screen design and have access to only that area of the design contained within the chosen area of the digitiser.
