Separate Pen Assignments Added for Shape Outline and Texture
SoftPlan Version 12 has added a new feature for Shapes and their pen assignments. Now you can specify a unique pen number for the outline of the shape versus the texture of the shape. In previous versions the same pen number was used for both the shape outline and texture.
  1. 1. Select File > System Options or Drawing Options > Pen Setup.
  2. From the Item Group pull down select Shapes.
  3. Unique pen numbers can be assigned to the Shape Outline and the Shape Texture.
  4. When a shape is drawn with a texture, the shape will print the outline and the texture with their appropriate pen assignment.
  5. When a shape is edited, the default pen assignments can be turned off to allow a specific pen number to be used for just that shape.


 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cross Section Details Have Specific Pen Assignments
In previous versions of Softplan, the pen settings for Cross section Details were controlled by Shapes. Version 12 now allows for the selection of individual pen assignments.
  1. Select Draw> Detail > Section Detail. This section provides a multitude of cross section details to draw.
  2. When picking one, the status bar will display the default pen setting, which can be edited to a different setting as well as the dimensions being drawn for the detail.

Another option is to edit the item to change the pen setting:

  1. 1. Select Edit > Edit Item.
  2. Select the Section Detail by clicking the From button on the item.
  3. Under the Print pens section, the print pen can be enabled by placing a check in it’s box. There are separate options for Outline pen and Texture pen. The outline defines the pen setting for the basic outline of the item. The texture defines the pen setting for any texture detail within the basic outline of the item (e.g., concrete hatching).
This feature allows for the selection of different print pen assignments for any Section detail outline and texture.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Site Lines Added to Pen Assignment
SoftPlan Version 12 has added the ability to now configure the print pen settings for your Site Lines. This feature was previously unavailable in earlier versions of Softplan.
  1. Select File > System / Drawing Options > Pen Setup.
  2. From the Pen Assignments menu you are able to select either Site Lines, or Site Miscellaneous from the Item Group selection menu.
  3. Once one of these has been selected, you are able to define a particular pen number to use for the varying site lines used in your drawing.
As with other settings, configuring the Pen Assignments in your System Options will only apply to all newly created drawings. In order for these settings to apply for your current drawing, they will need to be defined at the Drawing Options level.
