User Interface

Added:

Resolved:  
  1. Resolved an issue where the tool strip would not hold a customized icon.

Design & Drafting  

Added:
  1. Added the ability for the Adjust Wall Length command to work with products that have a value populated for the Wall Offset prompt.
Resolved:

  2. Resolved issues with products not being drawn or redrawn correctly after using the Adjust Wall Length Feature.  Also removed calls for redraw 2D elevation since it will now be done after the entire 3D wall and products are redrawn.
  3. Resolved issue with the Adjust Wall Length command to ensure all 2D entity types update correctly after the wall has been changed.
  4. Resolved an issue where the item numbers would not increment up correctly.
  5. Resolved an issue with Place Products Along Polyline not creating a valid last product in the line segment.

  7. Resolved an issue where calculations made for subassemblies were incorrect in certain circumstances.

Engineering  

Added:
  1. Added a new part preview in the part properties interface to better display more information about the part and to get the correct rotations values to display correctly.
Resolved:  
  1. Resolved an issue where the first part of the list would inherit values from the selected part.  Also added help text to the rotate part interface.
  2. Resolved an issue where part properties would error out if the product contained subassemblies and nested subassemblies of the same name.
  3. Resolved an issue where selecting a hardware item to open edit design data that is within a nested subassembly would not open the correct subassembly.
  4. Resolved an issue where the Remove material from parts list would not work.

G-Code  

Resolved:   
  1. Resolved an issue where some parts could be assigned to a field that they would not fit in.
  2. Resolved an issue where the MPR file sent to Cut Rite should not have a lead-in or lead out.
  3. Resolved an issue where some single part programs could not be written.

Machine Tokens  

Resolved:  
  1. Resolved an issue where using Stop Dado Gap values in the DADO token would not populate the machining correctly.

Processing  

Added:   
  1. Added a new button to the Processing Center to clear selected stations from the select parts rather than clear everything.
Resolved:
  1. Resolved an issue where creating a new sheet in the drawing will not pull the handling code into the database.  It will now pull from the selected sheet in the nest tools interface.
  2. Resolved an issue where the route trim function was not creating a clean route after trimming when the pocket grew to more than 2 paths.
