    Dave, you mention generating a cutlist. Is there a macro or plug-in available that will create cutlists?

    Dave, if you replace tabs with spaces and line things up in Notepad (or some such), then enclosing the listing in HTML tags seems to do the trick:

    HTML Code:
    Quantity     Description           Length(X)     Width(Y)    Thickness(Z)
    =========================================================================
     2           Back rail 18           16 1/2"       3"            3/4"
     2           Back rail 24           22 1/2"       3"            3/4"
     1           Bottom Panel 18        23 1/4"      16 1/2"        3/4"
     1           Bottom Panel 24        23 1/4"      22 1/2"        3/4"

    That cutlist plugin is powerful!! All the more reason to carefully name the component parts with something meaningful so that when the cutlist prints out it will be easier to decipher.

    Question: A couple of the parts printed with approximate sizing, using the "~" symbol in front of the dimension. Why is that?

    I downloaded the plug in and moved to the plug in directory. I can see the Generate Cutlist option in the Plug in Menu.

    I selected a component (double click) and I can see the dash box around the component. I double click the component again and select the Generate cutlist and got a message "No components Selected. Select Components or Create a Component from your selection. No Cutlist generated."

    What I am doing wrong?
