MicroSurvey inCAD 2018 Known Issues

Date Reported: November 2, 2009

Status: Confirmed (10.1.0)

Problem: When running embeddedCAD under Windows Vista or newer, the "What's This?" Help feature may not work.

Solution: If you wish to use the "What's This?" Help feature, you may need to download and install an update from Microsoft, because Windows Vista and newer does not ship with the WinHelp32 viewer. Please refer to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article for more information. Please note, the main Help files will work without this update.

Date Reported: October 6, 2016

Status: Confirmed (15.0.0)

Problem: Computing an area using the FastArea command may preduce imprecise answers which may vary depending on your zoom level.

Cause The perimeter is determined using AutoCAD's Boundary Polyline command, which we discovered uses the displayed pixels to smooth the resulting polyline and eliminate small details around the perimeter that are not apparent at the current display level.

Workaround: Users are advised to verify their calculated areas using the "Calculate Area by Point Numbers" command.

Solution: The Fast Area command will be redesigned in a future update so as to not use AutoCAD's Boundary Polyline command for determining the boundary.

Date Reported: April 30, 2017

Status: Confirmed (18.0.0)

Problem: The new ribbon interface shows all commands for inCAD Premium (including the MsModeling and MsDesign tabs), even if you are running inCAD Standard. While they are displayed on the ribbon, most commands located on the MsModeling and MsDesign tabs will not function if you are running inCAD Standard because they require a Premium license.

Workaround: inCAD Standard users can hide the MsModeling and MsDesign ribbon tabs by right-clicking over the ribbon and unchecking them under "Show Tabs".

Solution: MicroSurvey will investigate methods to hide the MsModeling and MsDesign ribbons while running inCAD Standard in a future version.

Date Reported: October 6, 2017

Status: Confirmed (17.0.0)

Problem: inCAD with Civil 3D can be unstable during certain routines that access the database, for example when opening up the Active Coordinate Editor to view the points database or when using the Single Point Editor to modify a point.

Solution: MicroSurvey will investigate and fix this for an upcoming service pack.
