In DataCAD 14, if I clicked on a line or object and hit Alt I, it would change my cursor to the layer, line type, etc. of that line. If I do the same thing in 19, it just takes me to the Identify menu. Is there some way to preform the same function, which was very handy, rather than having to change the layer, then the line type?

Also, the old DCADWIN toolbar had a button to toggle when you wanted to add text. The only way I can see to do this in 19 is to hit Text in the Edit Menu, which isn't the end of the world, I suppose, just different.

I have looked under Support Files and I see several DCADWIN files but none with a .MCR extension.

Look for the Folder and Search Options - this is various places in different versions of Windows. Hold the Windows key and hit e and then in Win7, it is in the Organize menu. On the View tab, uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types". This will show ALL file extensions, so you can see the .MCR file extension.

This is the single most annoying default setting in Windows. I ALWAYS change it on every single machine I use.
