Drawing Regeneration

Sometimes, when you are working with a document after the command is finished, some visual elements stay on the drawing; for example, markers of characteristic points. To delete such visual elements, use forced regeneration (specified manually) or redrawing of a drawing.

Two commands in nanoCAD are used for it: Regen and Redraw (View menu).

Redrawing a drawing is faster than regeneration because all the drawing objects’ coordinates are recalculated (converting values with floating points from the drawing database to integer display coordinates) during regeneration.
