    It installs now, and it talks English, too!

    I did get it to install by changing the filename under which it gets filed from Galv to Scale. I have no idea why it didn't like its own proposal for the filename.

    There is a language option to change from French to English.

    Judging from the examples it appears to be indeed a rather sophisticated and very versatile program.  However, I have no practical experience yet.

    Regards

    Thank you for pointing out this program.

    The language is French, but that would be OK.
    The real issue: It did not install here!

    If anyone did succeed would you please let me know?

    Regards

    Once in a while question pops up "is there software to draw scales?".
    Usually, this happens in relation to  flat Bygrave or similar topic.

    Here is a link to a program written by ham radio enthusiast.
    http://tk5ep.free.fr/tech/abaqueROS/datas/Galva_185-3L.zip
    My understanding that originally it was designed to draw scales and faceplates for various ham hardware, but eventually grew up into something that is capable of handling, for example, circular slide rules.

    I did not run the program and most of the documentation seems to be in some language I do not understand, but sample files included with it look impressive.

    I myself use postscript when I need to draw almost anything consisting of repetitive elements (including scales), but I can imagine how someone may find learning postscript intimidating and this program may be helpful.
