Any idea why the decals applied to the wide sign holders at the back and back-left of this image show, while those applied to the narrower sign holders do not?  The sign holders are similar blocks,…Continue

"The file is 22.5 MB - I can cut stuff out of it to get it down to 5MB but it's possible that would take the problem with it, right?  Even removing everything except what's in the image it's still over 12 MB ... or do you have a…"

NXT object properties

 As a pensioner I'm using version PC23w 1 .0 of NXT render with Autocad 2017. Recently due to one of Autocads many crashes the object properties within NXT can no longer see any objects I select in the  drawing. Can this be repaired without downloading and reinstalling one or other of the programs?See More

"Panning while placing decals doesn't work for me in any version starting with AutoCAD 2015 and later. Panning does work in AutoCAD 2013. I'll see if I can figure out what changed and see if we can fix that."
