All parameters that define PDF file generation were separated from printing and introduced in existing Generate PDF dialog along with Print range known from printing functionality. It is also possible to execute PDF file generation straight from File menu.

Improvements

Enhanced File menu structure

basic

File menu has been remodelled to make it more intuitive for users:

  • New node Export contains all commands that allow to export drawings or whole project to files that cannot be imported back without losing electrical information (PDF, Metafile, DWG/DXF/DXB, SVG).
  • Commands that allows to insert drawings stored in non-native format were moved to Import node.
  • Order of all nodes was adjusted in order to improve ergonomics.

Enhancement of Complete

standard

Complete functionality was highly enhanced by adding additional methods of execution and changing overall workflow. It is possible now to execute Complete functionality on selected elements. If within selection (including graphical elements) there is only one component that can be completed, then process goes straight to symbol selection. If there are more, list of components that can be completed is prefiltered (with possibility to remove filter if required).

Enhancement of Pick List

standard

Pick List dialog displays Description 00 attribute now what allows for easier identification of already inserted components. Additionally, it is possible to define sorting and filters which can be stored and loaded on demand.

Enhancement to Terminal lock

Default folder for legend table

basic

In Building Installation Properties dialog, it is possible now to define folder name where legend symbols are stored what save time spent on browsing symbols each time GenerateLegend command is execute. Defined value is used to prefilter all symbol libraries and display only folders (and their symbols) with a given name.

Default value for Find and Replace

advanced

Default value for Find and Replace functionality available for blocks was changed from “Entire workspace” to “Selected element(s)”.

Scaling drawing using DWG Editor

basic

DWG Editor allows to scale drawings before insertion. It’s possible now to select one of predefined values such as 1:50 or 1:100 in order to speed up this process. Possibility to define custom scale was kept.

Renumbering of multi-level terminals

Within this option, we defined two different approaches depending on terminal number syntax – only numeric Terminal Number attributes are incremented. If terminal number is empty or alphanumeric, then Terminal Index attribute is incremented instead.

Enhancement of Multicore wires

advanced

Certain limitations of Multicore wires were removed which means that it is possible now to use cross references and Multicore to connect symbols on different pages, define text parameters used for symbol and change Component Code attribute.

Naming of reference symbols for Distribution Diagrams

standard

Naming of reference symbols used in Distribution Diagrams drawings was modified – Product attribute is inherited from panel’s name that reference is generated for and Product Index comes from page number where symbol is initially inserted.

Redesign of Distribution Properties dialog

standard

Due to many different options that are required for Distribution Diagrams module, Distribution Diagrams Properties dialog was redesigned to give a better overview of all settings.
