HighDesign 6.0.2 Release Notes

HighDesign 6.0.2 Release Notes

Changes and Improvements

  1. Speed optimizations: HighDesign 6.0.2 is ~8.5% faster than version 6.0.1.
  2. Annotations with Spline leader style now calculate automatically the best profile for the leader. As a result, it is no longer possible to define the tangents of a spline leader.

Bug Fixes

  1. Gradients: changing the opacity of a color now works correctly.
  2. Gradients: fixed the Invert gradient command
  3. Graphic styles with gradients no longer include the coordinates of the start and end points.
  4. Copying and pasting graphic attributes now work correctly with gradients.
  5. Gradients applied to arcs and circles now draw correctly.
  6. Gradients (Mac): the regions before and after the gradient's first and last control points are filled with the corresponding colours.
  7. Changing the system theme now correctly updates the text color on macOS 10.14 and newer.
  8. Hatch Settings panel: the controls for rotation are now enabled when a texture is selected.

  12. Annotation Settings panel: added an angular slider to control the rotation of the label.
  13. Annotations: changing the leader style no longer moves the landing point.
  14. Annotations: editing the label of an annotation created by the Duplicate command now opens the text input field at the correct location.
  15. Annotations: double-clicking to edit the label of a selected annotation no longer resets the text to the default suggested values.
  16. Text boxes created with the fit height or fit size methods are correctly sized regardless of the zoom factor.
  17. Text defaults now show a rounded value of text size in the current unit.
  18. Improved consistency of application name and editions and added badge colours for the different editions.
  19. Corrected issue with the Convert to Polyline command that would occasionally miss a vertex when applied to closed shapes.
  20. Arrow tool: holding down the Shift key removes already selected items when using the selection rectangle and Selection region methods.

  27. Fixed potential crash when using the Datum Point.
  28. The fill of circles now matches the outline in viewports or printed detail areas.
  29. Scroll wheel behaviour now matches the overall accepted pattern: Shift key scrolls horizontally; Alt/Option key scrolls vertically; no modifier key zooms in and out.
