IsoDraw problems

Starting experiencing some werid issues with IsoDraw on Friday. IsoDraw 7.1 + Wildfire 4.0 M090 Opened a .asm file I have been working on for the past two months. Opened file and turned off components I didn't want to illustrate. Transform to 2d and only (1) component out of (30?) translated into 2d. Shutdown IsoDraw and restarted. Same results. Checked another .asm and the same thing happened. Went into Pro-E and turned the .asm into a simplified state (no geometric data?) and the file loaded correctly. Clicked on transform 2d button and IsoDraw says "not enough memory"... Go see another user running IsoDraw, opens both files fine and transforms them into 2d. Unistall and reintall IsoDraw. Now both of the .asm files will not read .xas and .xpr files? IsoDraw 7.1 issue list. 1.) Cannot select individual data points using F5 in 2d mode. They appear then disappear. Useless now only use F6. 2.) When using text and tabs, if you go back and change the font size and tab over, IsoDraw doesn't know where the tabs are located and places tabs in different places. 3.) Open 3D file, click on individual part in an .asm drawing and the part enlarges then shrinks back, now hold shift and click other parts and the user cannot tell which parts are highlighted....might have to do with % of view user is looking at. 4.) Change .asm in Wildfire to "simplified state" open in IsoDraw, convert to 2d and error "Not enough memory"....already did the 4gb fix.

Hi Dan, you can reset the preferences by starting IsoDraw with the shift key pressed. A dialog shows up and you can confirm you want to delete the preferences. After doing so, you can open the preferences and switch off the "User buffered drawing" option. Also I recomment to use the latest M-release.. regards, Christian

Christian, I believe we are running the most current version 7.1 F0000.... My problem now seems to be that I cannot read .xpr and .xas files from Wildfire 4.0 M090....this kills my workflow, have to manually go search for the related parts. Any fixes for .xas and .xpr files?

Dan, using the data with IsoDraw 7.1. FOOO should work fine, you may check with PTC support if there is a specific issue with the WF 4.0 M090 output and IsoDraw. Also to be sure that there aren't other impacts on your installation I would recommend to double check with a support representative. You also may try IsoDraw 7.1. M010 which is the most current version of IsoDraw. (http://www.ptc.com/cs/product_calendar/PTC_Product_Calendar.htm#RANGE!B22). Much success, Christian
