    What .PDF writer/reader/editor do you use?

    Thanks all for the helpful info. I have made a decision.. I have bought Kofax (Tungsten) Power PDF advanced. GBP157.20 including VAT. Rationale for this choice: 1 Perpetual license - I hate subscription services although I do confess to using M$365 2 PC based - no cloud requirement - it's...

    Keyboard shortcuts not working in win 11

    As @Stu3d says, you can try a copy of the user.NET.profile - usually found in "C:\Users\<yourusername>\AppData\Roaming\Alibre Design\default user" directory. There is no way to edit the user.NET.profile outside of Alibre. I have developed an Add-On that can read the files and provide info on...

    What .PDF writer/reader/editor do you use?

    I'm installing now - to test. Given that I already have M$365 I don't really need all the office stuff. But free is good!!

    What .PDF writer/reader/editor do you use?

    I've been evaluating for a few days - seems good and given the available features price is OK.

    What .PDF writer/reader/editor do you use?

    Opinions sought - I'm looking for a new .PDF writer but don't fancy paying for Adobe Acrobat. I do want a tool that will install as a printer, can edit existing .pdf and is unobtrusive when used as a simple reader. I quite like to look of Kofax Power PDF ( now Tungsten Power PDF) but worry that...

    Updated Utilities (V3. 0) compatible with Alibre V28 now in resources

    I will merge the changes - but not just yet. I have a bunch of updates in work to introduce a worm/worm gear tool and want to get that done on this branch.

    Updated Utilities (V3. 0) compatible with Alibre V28 now in resources

    It should be fixed now - I have just released utilitiesForAlibre Version 3.0. Sorry but was not possible to create a release that would be fully compatible with both V27 and V28 - so this latest version disables the keyboard shortcut menus if you use with Alibre V27. Going forward, I shall be...

    Utilities for Alibre - Updated for compatibility with Alibre V28

    The release of Alibre V28 caused some issues in the code used to generate Keyboard shortcut data. This release aims to correct the issue. Unfortunately, it does mean that this release is NOT compatible with Alibre V27. If you are using Alibre V27 or earlier, then it is suggested you use Version...

    Updated Utilities (V3. 0) compatible with Alibre V28 now in resources

    @Cator , @stepalibre Yes - It's the updated DevExpress packages. The Class SvgBitmap is now in in the package DevExpress.Drawing.v23.2. I'd already got the code reworked and working - I just need to package for a new release - I think I'll make this version 3.0. Unfortunately, I can't see any...

    Exporting part as STEP AP 242

    AlibreX API documentation is at version 1.0.0.0 (28.0.0.28031) whereas the program as a whole is Version: V28 64-bit [Build 28094]. It is not the first time a distribution has shipped with version numbers out of sync. It's my guess that the docs are automatically generated and AP242 export was...

    Publishing Alibre powered software and Integrations in an open source way.

    For a stand alone application this is the correct method - and easy to do. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/microsoft.win32.registry.getvalue?view=netframework-4.8.1 The code is the same for other versions of .NET.

    Publishing Alibre powered software and Integrations in an open source way.

    If you are working with an Add-on you can do something like: public static void AddOnLoad(IntPtr hwnd, IAutomationHook pAutomationHook, IntPtr unused) { AlibreRoot = (IADRoot) pAutomationHook.Root; _parentWinHandle = hwnd; var version =...

    Exporting part as STEP AP 242

    I checked over the AlibreX.dll yesterday - I think ExportAP242 is the one and only addition to the API - I'd hoped for more...

    Version 28 Planned release date

    I've asked for this previously but it seems to fall on deaf ears. Alibre is a great product but more transparency when it comes to bugs and bug reporting would be a real bonus to users and developers alike.

    Amount of Ram?

    Hi Jacob Given you have a Dell XPS15 9530 you 'should' be seeing quite good performance - but the devil is in the detail.. As @DavidJ says, you do need to check the Alibre settings to ensure the dedicated high performance GPU is being used and not the GPU integrated with the CPU. I'm guessing...

    Amount of Ram?

    What is your system spec? CPU, RAM, GPU?

    Recovery of user settings

    So I did a few tests.. In the .zip you provided, the files User.NET.profile and User.NET.profile_24 are readable. All the other '_27' files are corrupt and unreadable. You might try renaming User.NET.profile_24 to User.NET.profile_27 - it 'might' work and recover setting you had in version 24...

    Alibre under Linux?

    I'm not entirely convinced.. I don't doubt that Alibre needs to sell maintenance packages - but they also need to invest in the product to provide updated and additional features demanded by the users. I don't doubt that those additional features will break backwards compatibility between versions.
