Help needed with Mitchell Geometry programme

Help needed with Mitchell Geometry programme

Help needed with Mitchell Geometry programme

I have a legitimate copy of Geometry (ver 5.01) written by the late great William C Mitchell Link.

I am having a very "senior" moment and need some help. I have a racecar which I think has a rear suspension geometry problem, hence I bought this software. I have read all the help files and I still cannot solve my dilemma.

I fire up Geometry and files/open/pushdemometris.gem, this draws a front up on the screen then I go rear/open/pushdemometric.gem, and yes a rear appears below.

Now I want to start to edit the rear suspension to change the X,Y and Z points so I go to files/edit geometry and it does not give me a choice of front or rear and defaults to edit the front.

Having experimented and used "load demo files box" at startup and selected "Front and rear formula car" now I go to files/edit geometry and hey presto I get a choice of front or rear.

Does another (Mitchell)user know what I am doing wrong?

Perhaps it's time for a self help group :0)

I cannot help you on that one, If your problem is not "rocker linkage related" you might want to check out an alternative: www.dynatune-xl.com
