Roads / streets can be entered like land plots (assuming you know
direction and distance) .... just leave off the last "Ln ; ; " so the
program does not attempt to complete the plot.
OK, good. I guess I can messure the width of the street and cut from
the center to the curb.
In the Text View, the input is not in fields, it's plain ASCII
navigation is via arrow keys (or as you said, the mouse). All text
processors have always done it the same (e.g., EDIT, Notepad, EditPad,
....). If you have a favorite program, type it there, CUT / PASTE to
DM's Text View.
OK, good idea. I just assumed a simple text editor would be part of the
input routine. (I mean for the money)
Dates can be entered as 21-Oct-1799 or Oct 21, 1799 or 11/21/1799 or
11.21.1799 or Twenty-one October Seventeen Ninety-Nine ... it's ACSII
and DM does not care as long as that line is preceeded by "DAT".
I know that but if these dates go into a table and that table can be
sorted, what good do any of those examples do?
The scale is a viewing / printing scale not a plot scale. The HOME
displays the max (31.7 feet / inch). The END key displays the minimum,
12.1 miles / inch.
I'll have to try that. In my tests yesterday I couldn't get to 31.7 feet.
Thanks for the help
