Roll-over Highlighting

Do you have a feature called Roll-over Highlighting which when the mouse rolls over any line or object, the line or object becomes accented or highlighted. This is especially useful when you have a large polyline and when you mouse over the polyline, you can see how much of the object is affected before editing or deleting.
I hope to be able to purchase your product soon.

I am not entirely sure about your description of the way AutoCAD handles what you describe as roll over highlighting. progeCAD has a couple of modes that are similiar to what you describe but I am unsure if they are the same as the highlighting you describe. I know AutoCAD supports the same flyover's that progeCAD has built in. One mode is to turn on grips highlighting. I am not 100% sure if the grips on an object would show up just by flying over it or if the object would need to be selected to have the grips appear. The second mode is called flyover snapping however you must be careful not to overload this feature or it can become unreliable for actually identifying the point to which you wish to snap. This mode can be configured by turning on one or more of the running esnap modes, such as intersection, or endpoint. as you move your cursor over the object those snaps you have configured will apear and simply selecting when near a snap will zero in on the feature and place your pick point. Hopefully one of these is similar to your description.

Hi Scott,
Thanks for your response. I actually came across the exact setting I was looking for. It is under the OPTIONS / SELECTION PREVIEW and the check box has two settings
one for "When a command is active" and the other "When no command is active"
Make sure BOTH are selected. Then when you mouse over any line or object, the line will thicken or highlight indicating the object you wish to edit. It is just a nice feature that gives you "feedback" visually on your drawing.
