HighDesign R7 (2022.2) Release Notes

Version: 2022.2.2086
Status: Released

New features, changes & improvements

  • Supports macOS 13 Ventura.
  • New Tracing Reference displays another sheet with adjustable opacity, angle, position, scale, 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:
    • New Node Type property to change a node’s geometry and tangents. Nodes can be straight (i.e. no control points) or have mirrored, asymmetric or disconnected control points.
    • improved construction and editing.
    • improved redraw speed and accuracy.
  • 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.
  • The Hatch at Click tool now supports regions made of lines, polylines, arcs, bezier paths, splines and mixed shapes made of different objects. Also, Hatch at Click can now be used to open holes in a selected hatch by clicking a closed region inside the hatch.
  • Redesigned the Layers menu on the Properties bar for easier access to common layer commands and to the current layer’s opacity.
  • The Page format panel now allows to enter the pages size in any base unit, including pixels.
  • Updated the list of format presets in Drawing Presentation to include social post sizes.


  • Project Views are now available on HighDesign SE.
  • HD-94 Changing stroke or fill colour of a selected symbol should work regardless of its “Colours by symbol” setting.
  • HD-122 Improved handling of insufficient privileges when trying to open a project.
  • HD-94 Changing stroke or fill colour of a selected symbol should work regardless of its “Colours by symbol” setting
