Version 2.77 available for update

Postby Jeremiah Farmer » Thu Aug 10, 2006 5:31 pm

Version 2.77 is available for installation.
a couple of bug fixes from the interim 2.75 update.
But also the functioning version of our SketchUp export. Note that the complete SketchUp Export will ship with 2.80 next week, complete with dozens of SketchUp 3-D components, automatically mapped to most plants in the database. A quick note on the SketchUp thing -- we are drawing all of our components at a set 3' wide. So if you have collected a bunch of components yourself, you might want to start re-scaling them as such.
Other cool new feature is that you don't need to delete and then re-place a schedule -- if you have only one schedule in the drawing, just click the schedule button and it will regenerate itself in place.


Complete update list:

Project Manager, better error handling for sheets with or without titles.

Placing Shrub Area onto one created with previous style of hatch pointer does not generate error.

Plant Schedule able to regenerate itself without having to delete and re-place it.

Irrigation Schedule able to regenerate itself without having to delete and re-place it.

Reference Notes Schedule able to regenerate itself without having to delete and re-place it.

Pipe Sleeve dummy PSI/GPM data saved correctly.

Main Line loop correctly reduces flow for reduced segments; pipe info displays reduced GPM for each segment.

SketchUp Export button added.

Stipple auto-sets MaxHatch if hatch area too dense.
