Post by Andrew » Thu May 25, 2006 1:47 pm

HighDesign 1.7 Beta 3 is now available for download and testing.

Important: Please note that "beta" means pre-release software and there may be some potentially serious problems. We recommend you back-up your projects before working with beta releases.

Beta 3 Release Notes:<ul type="disc"><li>[IMP] Trim: can now use a hatch as cutter.
<li>[NEW] Trim can now be applied to circular arcs and circles.
<li>[CHG] The Spotlight plugin is now universal.
<li>[FIX] Fixed an internal error in the Vector PICT export.
<li>[NEW] Drawing Manager: the Layers table now shows the number of items on that layer.
<li>[FIX] DXF Export: dashed lines are exported correctly.
<li>[FIX] Fixed an occasional internal error in the Linear Dimensions tool.
<li>[FIX] Undo Delete now honors the stack order of objects.
<li>[FIX] DXF Export: some horizontal dimensions were incorrectly exported as aligned.
<li>[NEW] During the construction of a Hatch or a Polyline, a "delete" icon is displayed next to the last vertex. Clicking it removes that vertex from the shape.
<li>[CHG] Autoscrolling only starts when the main window is active.
<li>[IMP] Walls: it is now possible to connect three walls to create a "+" intersection.
<li>[OPT] Bezier curve redrawing is about 27% faster.
<li>[FIX] Windows, palettes and menus now work better on multiple screens.
<li>[IMP] DXF Import: imported drawings are now placed at the center of the drawing area. Previously, some drawings could end up being placed at the far right-bottom end.
<li>[NEW] DXF Import: Added support for PaperSpace. In HD Pro, ModelSpace and PaperSpace are placed on different sheets. This feature is still under development.
Thanks for your help with testing the HighDesign betas.
