* Usage
 Drawing released from design department turns into another drawing variously processed by downstream sector. For example, it becomes job instruction card at manufacturing department, examination and inspection drawing at quality control department, operation manual at document section, maintenance manual at maintenance division, etc. If it can obtain instead of drawing of paper from design department by electronic data of HPGL, PDF, DXF, DWG, GERBER, NC-Drill, IGES and SXF, it is easily processible into another drawing by PloView and PloComp.

* Function
 PloView and PloComp have about the same powerful input editing function as 2D-CAD, can read various view files (HPGL, PDF, DXF, DWG, GERBER, NC-Drill, IGES, SXF, image), and can edit them. And, new drawing creation enables.
 Introduce the drawing edit function on this page.

File


* Open.
(1) New comment file creation

(2) Open view file by edit OFF
 Use it, when seeing view file, and adding comment.
 View file cannot be edited.
 Comment file linked to view file is newly created, or if there exists linked comment file, it will open automatically, and it can edit.
 View file and comment file overlap and are displayed.

(3) Open view file by edit ON
 Use it, when editing view file.
 View file is converted into comment data and can edit.
 View file does not display.

(4) Open comment file (it is not related to edits ON/OFF).
 Use it, when editing comment file.


* Save
 Edited comment data can be saved.
 And, comment data is converted into view file and can be saved.
 Comment file is file which can read and write only PloView and PloComp.

- How to offer comment file name (example)
  ABC.hgl     View file (in the case of HPGL file)
  ABC.cmt     Comment file linked to view file
  ABC_hgl.cmt Comment file which converted view file

* PloView original function
 Although PloView opens only one view file simultaneously, it corresponds to multi-page.
 When view file is opened by edit ON, page number (1-20) of view file will link to layer number of comment file, and will be converted into comment file.


* PloComp original function
 PloComp can open view file to 20 files simultaneously.
 When view file is opened by edit ON, file number (1-20) of view file will link to layer number of comment file, and will be converted into comment file.

* Select
 Select on conditions shown in the following set up by "Set Property".

- Selected graphic type
 It is Select ON/OFF about L ine, Surface, Text, Rectangle/LongCircle, Bitmap, and Macro.

- Line Selection method
"Start to End Point" mode or "ControlPoint" mode
 "Start to End Point" selects the starting point to end point of polyline collectively by click somewhere on polyline.
 Moreover, at the time of area Select, unless from the starting point to end point of polyline is included in area, don't select.
 "ControlPoint" mode will select the constituting points, when it clicks constituting points of polyline, and when it clicks line upper part, it will select constituting points of both edges of the line.
 Moreover, recognize the constituting points in area that constituting points of polyline are included at the time of area Select.

Example:
 When (1) is clicked by "Start to End Point" mode, the starting point to end point will be selected.


Example:
 When (1) is clicked by "ControlPoint" mode, both-edges point of line segment of (1) will be selected.
 Then, pressing Shift key, when it clicks constituting points of polyline of (2), additional select of the constituting points can be carried out.


Example:
 When (1)->(2) drug is carried out and area select is set by "Start to End Point" mode, polyline which has all the constituting points from the starting point to end point in area will be recognized.
 Like polyline in the upper part, even if some constituting points exist in area, the polyline does not recognize.


Example:
 When (1)->(2) drug is carried out and area select is set by "ControlPoint"mode, all the constituting points in area will be recognized.


- Selected area
 It is effective at the time of area Select, and select one of "Inside of Area" or "Outside of Area".
 When it has set to "Inside of Area", figure in area will be selected.
 When it has set to "Outside of Area", figure outside area will be selected.
 However, when "Line selevtion method" is "ControlPoint", it becomes in area automatically.

* Individual Select
 It will select, when comment is pointed out with the mouse left button.

 When the next comment is selected, before selected comment will become select release.
 Please select to select the next comment, pressing Shift key without carrying out select release of the before selected comment.
 It will become select release when before selected comment is recognized pressing Shift key.

Example:
 When it drags to (2) from (1) by rectangular area select, all the polylines will be selected to select only lower right figure with the left figure.
 Then, when it drags to (4) from (3) by rectangular area Select, pressing Shift key, select of upper left rectangle will be released.
 Result becomes right figure.


* Polygon area select
 It clicks at vertex of polygon area to select with the mouse left button (button is lowered and raise quickly in the same position of mouse), and when the last presses Enter key or nearby of the 1st vertex is pointed out, it will close polygon.
 Then, comment in polygon area is selected.
 When BackSpace key is pressed while polygon input, vertex before one is cancellable.
 When Esc key is pressed while polygon input, polygon area select is cancellable.
 The number of the maximum vertexes which can be inputted is 20 pieces.
 When the next comment is selected, before selected comment will become select release.
 Please select to select the next comment, pressing Shift key without carrying out select release of the before selected comment.
 It will become select release when before selected comment is recognized pressing Shift key.

Example:
 When (1) to (7) is clicked by polygon area select at the left figure, as shown in the right figure, figure in polygon can be selected.


* Move selected comment with mouse
 First, select comment by the above-mentioned method.
 Next, move mouse cursor onto any one of the selected comments, the mouse left button is downed, move mouse in the state of down, and raise the mouse left button in position after movement.

  Shape Change of Polyline Vertex
   On vertex of polyline, insert arc or chamfer.
 Selecting this menu will display "Change line vertex" dialog.


* Change one vertex R
 Change vertex near clicking point into arc specified by R.
 Designation of R= 0 will change arc into vertex.
 When it clicks arc upper part, it will change into R which specified radius of the arc.
 Arc can be inserted with a radius of designation also between arc, and between lines and arcs.


* Change all vertex R
 Change all the vertexes of polyline near clicking point into arc of specified R.
 Designation of R= 0 will change arc into vertex.
 When there exists arc which is not vertex, it is changed into R specified by radius of arc.
 Arc is not inserted between arc, and between lines and arcs.


* Chamfer one vertex
 Chamfer by chamfering length 1 and 2 on vertex near clicking point.
 When a little clicking point is shifted to vertex, clicking point side will become chamfering length 1.
 And the side opposite to becomes chamfering length 2 to vertex.

  Delete line in selected area boundary
   Delete polyline on selected area boundary.
 Perform rectangular area selecting or polygon area selecting for polyline after selecting this menu.
 Then, since "Execute line deletion on selected area boundary." dialog is displayed, line deletion will be executed when OK button is pushed.

Example: Rectangular area deletion
 Drag to (1)->(2) by the left mouse button with the left figure.
 A push on OK button will delete line in rectangular area, as shown in the right figure.


Example: Polygon area deletion
 Carry out left mouse button click with the left figure at order of (1) - (11).
 A push on OK button will delete line in polygon area, as shown in the right figure.



Example: Use polygon area deletion and it is knife cutting.
 The left figure is Rectangle converted and inputted into polyline.
 Constituting points are (1)-(5).
 When R is applied to vertex by "Change all vertex R", R will not attach this polyline to (1)(5) of the starting point and end point.
 Then, as shown in middle drawing, when left mouse click is carried out to P1, P2, and P3 by polygon area deletion, as cut with knife, line segment between (1)-(2) will be divided into two.
 Then, when arc radius is specified, left mouse click is carried out by P1 and P2, as shown in the right figure, and line connection is executed, R will be applied to all the vertexes.

  Trim Line
   Trim line segment by the side of designation on point of intersection of polyline and polyline.

* Line segment trim of edge
 As shown in the above figure and middle figure, when left mouse click is carried out on edge line(1) of polyline, it will be trimmed in crossing line segment near clicking point.

* Trim line segment to edge after the specified line segment
 As shown in the figure at the bottom, when left mouse click is carried out by median line part (it is not edge) upper (1) of polyline, it will be trimmed by crossing line segment near clicking point, and subsequent polylines will be deleted.

* Trim by two lines in line segment
 At place of (2) of the above figure and middle figure, there are two line segments crossing one line segment.
 When left mouse click is carried out by (2) (on line segment between the two), it will be trimmed by two line segments and between two line segments will be deleted.

  Connect Line
   Connect endpoint (the starting point or end point) of two polylines on extension, and set it one polyline.
 Selecting this menu will display "Arc inserted in line connection point" dialog.
Specify arc radius, when inserting arc in connection point.
 When not inserting arc, leave arc radius zero.
 Push OK button and carry out left mouse click of end line upper part of polyline to connect.
 Then, it connects on extension and becomes one polyline.

Cautions 1:
 In the case of single line which consists of only the starting point and end point, endpoint of direction near clicked position moves and is connected.

Cautions 2:
 When either is arc and both are arcs, connection path has more than one.
 Plural routes can be changed and selected at point clicked to the 2nd.
 Before clicking to the 2nd, when cursor is brought to end of line segment in the state of mouse button rise, route will be displayed by dragging.
 When mouse cursor is brought to the next constituting points from end of the 2nd line segment, the next connection path will be displayed by dragging.
 Please carry out left mouse click and decide in position of route of hope.

Example:
 Connect between straight line-straight line by radius zero.
 When left mouse click is carried out to (1)(2) with the left figure, line will be connected as shown in the right figure.
 Position of (2) is different in the above figure and below figure.
 Endpoint near position of (2) moves.


Example:
 Between straight line-straight lines, insert arc and connect.
 When left mouse click is carried out by (1)(2) of the left figure, line will be connected as shown in the right figure.


Example:
 Connect by radius zero between arc-straight lines.
 When left mouse click is carried out by (1)(2) of the left figure, line will be connected as shown in the right figure.
 Position of (2) is different in the upper figure and below figure.


Example:
 Between arc-straight lines, insert arc and connect.
 When left mouse click is carried out by (1)(2) of the left figure, line will be connected as shown in the right figure.
 It is between the upper and lower sides of figure, position of (2) is different.

  Macro-izing
   Macro-ize selected comment.
 When it Macro-izes, it will become convenient to set plural figures into one and to handle them (addition, deletion, movement, etc.).
 In "Macro BreakUp" , macro is breaked up and it can return to the original figure.

The contents of Macro-ized:
 When it Macro-izes, Macro of the following contents will be created, and it is inputted so that the Macro may be displayed on the same position as Macro-izing before.
  Scale : 1.0
  Angle : 0 degree
  File name :
    Number which begins from 1 after text of "*" is added.
    Number is ID number for distinguishing from another Macro.
    This file name is not file which exists really.
  Control point:
    Lower left point of constituting points of figure in Macro.

Example:
 It will become the right figure, when polyline, text, and rectangle of the left figure are selected and Macro-izing is performed.
 Reversely, it will become the left figure, when Macro is selected and Macro breakup is carried out with the right figure.

  Connect window with surface
   When there exist plural surfaces of selected comment, set the 1st surface into parents, and connect surface of the 2nd after as a window.

* Painting of surface which connected window
 When there exist window included by parents' surface and window included by the including window, painting becomes repetition of ON, OFF, ON, OFF ... from the outside.
 As for parents and window, painting is set to ON when window exists on the outside of parents' surface.

Example:
 Four surfaces are inputted into the left figure from (1) to (4).
 When these four surfaces are selected and this command is executed, as shown in the right figure, four surfaces will be connected, and painting ON and OFF will be given.


* Method to release connection of window
 Select surface which wants to release connection and set up surface attribute value of polyline for carrying out nothing by "Change comment property".
 Then, it becomes polyline without painting out.
 Connection is also released.
 And select the polyline once again and set surface attribute value of polyline as Solid Painting (either except nothing) by "Change comment property".

 Selecting this menu will display "Comment-izing of viewdata" dialog.
 Here, when "Drawing Area" and "Layer" are set up and OK button is pushed, viewdata will be converted and displayed on comment data.
 Since it becomes the same display, it is not almost different from viewdata seemingly.
 It will be overwritten by it if comment data has already existed.

* Drawing Area
 Select from "All of Draw" or "ZoomArea of UpperWindow" of viewdata.
 When figure is trapped in zoom area boundary in case where "ZoomArea of UpperWindow" is selected, polyline clips, but surface, text, and Bitmap do not clip.
