New thread!

I would like to be able to use Offset on a void in a hatch pattern. This way I can hatch a 2x2 ceiling grid, and drop voids into it snapping to the grid - and them Offset it 1/32" to the inside, so that all the lines show as they should.

When using Copy / Drag it would be great to have Dynamic Rotate and Flip available.

Are you referring to the Object Snap toolbar? If so, it's already there.

Make complete sense to me.

In dimensions would it be possible to have multi-line text in the dimension prefix and suffix. Or at least be able to have the suffix be on a line below the dimension string?

Could we have the grid colors be allowed to use any of the colors in the in the color palette instead of just the standard colors?
