Set exact dimensions - pointing finger missing

Recommended Posts

frustrating software, help says to set an exact dimension hover over and the select turns to a pointing finger.

 

on my mac sierra, the finer is not there, hours going in circles again.

 

what default must change - anyone know?

 

I've seen these come up randomly when you dont want it to, but now that I need to make exact dimensions, there isnt a single help as to where this pointing finger is if its not there

That statement "...cursor changes to a finger..." is true on a PC. I have no idea what should be true on a Mac. You should call Home Designer Tech Support on Monday for a cogent answer to your complaint.

Broken software, backwards...I found a way to back into doing this, but MG is the help system broken, again, if the s/w doesn't do what the first indication is, you fall flat on your face.  If this was automotive software, you would still be driving  a 50 Chevy.  There is no reason in 2017 the s/w doesn't do simple room size changes easier, CAD or no CAD. If this is a MAC thing, they need to clarify their s/w performs horribly on a mac, which with all this, I'm starting to wonder if that is not a larger part of the problem. Everything seems straight forward, and it doesn't work.  Again, their s/w validation prior to release should have updated help, a pc person and a mac person side by side running through the steps, and where it fails, write an asterisk and give the user REAL help.

I use Sierra on may mac with HDPro - I get the finger regularly. (so to speak)

Sierra straight out of the box..no changes.(that I am aware of?)

See my screenshot image...

I use this feature all the time - a good one. imoScreen Shot 2017-03-05 at 2.35.26 pm.png
