I’ve been proven wrong twice today…
I was contacted yesterday by a user, Keith Kempker, about whether Land Desktop could be run in MDI mode (Multiple Document Interface). Well, no, it never has been able to, why now? Well, it seems as if there is a option on the System tab of Options in Land Desktop that allows you to run in SDI mode or MDI. I dismissed it as being something in there as a holdover from AutoCAD, but no, it works. I got a report back from him today that said he did, in fact, have multiple drawings and multiple projects open at once. I verified this with James Wedding, who was sitting next to me at the time.
My question was “HOW?” His answer – “Magic”
Anyway, here’s a screen shot so you’ll know where to find it:
Sure, “it works”, I could run Autocad on a 286 too.
Isn’t the problem with MDI the project database? If you open two drawings sharing a database what keeps them in sync? Or from corrupting each other. Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.
