    I'm going to move stuff down a bit.

    If you'd like me to add some posts at the beginning of the thread for you to keep all your work together let me know and I will. :thumbup:

    Edit: I've just moved one of your posts up and given you 3 place holder posts. If you want more let me know.

    Holy crap Ma Baker, that is brilliant! :thumbup:

    People better start asking questions, or I'm going to assume no-one's making use of this thread and I'll stop adding to it :thumbdn:

    Mate, its heaps handy keep it up :thumbup: I'm making use if it, and it should be easy to find too, thats why I asked an admin to make it a sticky.

    don't worry, I have many many (noob) questions to ask, but between your guide and the linked pdf, I'm trying to nut out some of the basic things myself first :D

    I've added some advanced stuff just before the drafting post, and I'll add a bit more about the smart dimension tool and dimensioning drawings in general.

    And that'll probably be it until people start asking questions :<

    Without the swearing, you may as well be reading just any old book :p

    Makes it much more relateable IMO.

    Link will work again, can't guarantee this new upload is exactly the same as the old one (I may have changed text formatting or something).

    But the tute covers how to change or make your own template anyway :thumbup:

    I should probably note that you can't "save as" in Edge 2D, so always keep a backup copy of your template file safe.

    Massive, detailed, brilliant. Hectic. My brain will be hurting I'm sure. :)

    Seems pretty clear to me that Bastard Child is Jessie Pinkman.

    Thanks for taking time out from cooking to help us with some sketches dude!

    I'm having no luck getting the program to accept the free license (UAC off, Win7 64) so if anyone has come across this would appreciate some advice.

    Off to the forums now to solve.
