It was pointed out today by Nick Zeeben that one of my posts is wrong. Well, not wrong per se, but misleading. Actually, I reported functionality that was only included wrongly by Autodesk.
In this horribly wrong post, I told you that you could operate Land Desktop 2007 in MDI mode, rather than the SDI mode that it’s always been. That was misleading.
I take no blame whatsoever for this misleading post. Not only was I right (the caveat was that you couldn’t do any LDT specific functions when in MDI mode), but James Wedding was sitting next to me as I discovered this and CONFIRMED that it worked. So there! I wasn’t wrong, Autodesk was wrong for allowing broken functionality to be included in the program.
Mark this day. I admitted that I was wrong. Doesn’t happen often 😉
So what’s broken? Full disclosure, I don’t even have LDT _installed_ anymore, but I was told by a VERYgood adesk source that it worked. Might have to rattle this one back up the ladder.
While you can open more than one drawing, be warned…if you open drawings in MDI that occur in different project roots – you will begin to get strange results.
For example, if you open a drawing with a project root of 2006 from the MRU list, and then open a 2005 drawing, also from the MRU list. You will create a project folder heirarchy in the opposite project root.
