In ideCAD, the user is informed simultaneously about the process made with the message line. With the information line, information is given about the object that the mouse cursor is on.

Message line

It is located at the bottom of the program. The relevant information about the transaction is sent to the user on this line.

We can divide the information written in the message line into two groups.

  • Knowledge of the steps that need to be taken when using commands;

"Determine the point where the library will be placed." like.

  • Warnings;

Like "the starting and ending points cannot be the same".

Information line

The information line is in the lower left corner of the program.

When the mouse pointer hovers over the object, information about the object is transmitted to the user here. This information is object properties and names.

In the table below, there are examples of information that will appear in the information line when you move the mouse cursor on the relevant object.
