I'm having a problem with plotting after the latest update. When I click on quick layout the dashed box comes up so you can place it on what you want to plot, but I can not move the drawing around at all, and when I try and zoom in or out the drawing will jump all over the place and then just display a black drawing area. Need help

Same..

Datacad 18

In quick layout I cannot zoom or pan. I could (and can still) do this in X3.

Is there a known bug or problem?

Is there a setting I am missing?

So, before you place your quick layout, you're able to zoom in, out, pan around?

Opps sorry I am on a beta version for 18.01.01.01 that is available as part of the Subscription Edition (SE). I thought that version had already been released to the public. I've been out of touch a bit with things on the forum lately, sorry for adding to the confusion. :?

18.01.01.01 seems like it might have fixed that bug as I don't see it here and here is a description for the coming update that might be related to this. Will have to wait for an official word on when this might become available or if it is actually related to what you are seeing.
2. Navigating by using the arrow keys or the scroll wheel while in Quick Layout would cause the drawing to 'drift' off the lower left corner of the drawing window. This has been corrected.

Same here. I'm on 18.01.00.06 and experiencing the same effect. If I try to move the cursor AT ALL via mouse or arrows, the target area moves a long ways away, x and y coordinates jump to the thousands if I move anything, and there doesn't seem to be any way to move in a direction that reduces the values.

Also, as reported, I tried to change the percentage and it crashed.

Really a problem right now.

Need certain prints by the end of the week for a business trip to 5 clients in Florida. Needs to work!

DataCad pushed out an update today that partially fixes this problem.

The version is 18.01.01.03 and I am now able to zoom and pan inside a quick layout which is very helpful.

Your drawing will still crash if you attempt to change your layout %. I don't really use that feature but its something to take note of.

Corrected for the next build.
