Re: lost drawing file

Punch will open only PRO files or PSH files
You can open the DXF files with a CAD program or Corel Draw. regarding the BMP files, you can aopen them with almost any graphic program, including MS Paint

I am trying to convert my drawing to pdf file so I can e-mail to someone wittthout the program. Can you help?

To get your drawings to .pdf format you will want to print to a .pdf printer. To create a virtual printer that can handle this, you will need to download and install a program. I, personally, use CutePDF Writer. You can pick up this program here:

Then, when you are in Punch, you can choose to print whatever you want. Just make sure to switch the print output to print on the .pdf writer. It will ask you where you want to save the file.

P!3DHome has stopped working

I encountered the same problem. In my case, the Punch! Landscape file saved into a folder on my C: drive called Program Files (x86). I dragged the entire folder for Punch! Landscape from the Program Files (x86) folder into the Program Files folder. I've had this same problem with games I've downloaded from MSN in the past, and this fix has always worked.

Desktop hijacked at the time of starting

Do this in order...its worked for others that had similar messages on long as your operating system is legit. Any time you deal with this type of work on the computer...know what your doing...altering your registry can have dire effects.

1. C:WindowsDownloaded Program Files
  • Within that folder, remove any files or folders associated with .WGA
2. Safe Mode
  • Reboot your computer and as soon as Windows logs off, start repeatedly tapping the F8 Key on your keyboard.
  • As soon as you see the Windows Advanced Startup options select Safe Mode within Safe Mode get yourself into these folders…
  • C:WindowsSystem32 (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
  • C:WindowsSystem32dllcache (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
    Note: Dllcache is a hidden folder, to view hidden folders do the following, go to Start, Control Panel, Folder Options,
    Select the view Tab and under the Hidden Files option, select Show hidden files and folders
3. Safe Mode Registry
  • Click on Start, Run and within the open dialog box type regedit and click OK.
  • Within the Registry Editor navigate your self to
  • Right Click and Export the WGALOGON Folder (this should be saved onto your machine for backup purposes)

Can not faxit oremail it, no one can open it

What format does it save as?

Try saving it on the PC first (maybe .jpeg format or whatever format it takes) and add as attachment in your ususal email programme. Mind you, email attachments are limited in size. If the size of the file exceeds that, you may not be able to send it as an attachment. In this case, try compressing the file through a program like WinZip, etc.
As for faxing, try to get it as a printout through a printer first, and then send it through a regular fax machine.

Print problems

Print to fit page prints thumbnail size image.

trnsp.gif Answer Zoom out to make your design appear on a single screen, drag and draw a box around it, using the Select Objects Tool. Once it's all selected, go to Edit > copy, File > new, Edit > paste. Print from this new file.
Note: this may be caused by an extraneous object on an outer edge of your plan. When you zoom out, pan around your design to see if there is a stray object, which you can delete.
