HighDesign R6.5-2 (2022.2) Development Notes

Version: 2022.2-2045
Status: Beta testing

New features, changes & improvements

  • Sheets have a new Tracing Reference property that displays another sheet with adjustable opacity, angle, position, clipping and rendering effect. Tracing references are used to place a view of another drawing on a sheet with different coordinates, scale and rotation without altering the original drawing.
  • Saved projects now open with the last active view and zoom.
  • Bezier Path:
    • improved construction and editing.
    • improved redraw speed and accuracy.
    • new Vertex type buttons in Object Info control the tangent type of the vertex. A vertex can be straight (i.e. no control points) or have mirrored, asymmetric or disconnected control points.
  • Polyline: new Node Type buttons in Object Info to quickly change a vertex type from line to arc and vice-versa.
  • The Join command has been enhanced and now supports Polylines, Splines and Paths in addition to lines and walls. It can be used to combine two polylines, add any line or arc to a polyline, and join two splines or bezier paths in one object.
  • Redesigned the Layers menu on the Properties bar for easier access to common layer commands and to the current layer’s opacity.
