Below, the enhancements and fixes found in the update are detailed.
The image files that have 100000*100000 pixels were not loading properly in InspectionXpert and had a black background. Along with improvements in performance, this has been made possible.
Dialog to select missing Creo DRW file from project did not display filter *.drw*. This has been made possible.
Default font size had been set at 30 pts irrespective of CAD or PDF part files. This caused very large balloons. The default font size has been changed to 12 pts. When projects from earlier releases are opened, default font size is set to project default setting.This has been made possible, for earlier releases and new projects that will be created.
The drawing file name was exported as part name to Net Inspect. This has been fixed.
When there are more than 100 balloons, captures and balloons disappeared for certain characteristics. With implementing other ballooning improvements,this has been fixed.
Version out of date message was displayed when using local licensing. This has been fixed.
When the asterisk or hash symbol was used as Identification Criteria, Smart Extract failed.This has been fixed.
Certain balloons on CAD files were not movable or viewable (the software did not take the user to the balloon), when clicked on the respective row in the table manager. This has been fixed.
Issues arose when revising CAD projects.This has been fixed.
The char zone value for note was getting deleted after exploding a note.This has been fixed. Now after exploding note, the char zone will be displayed for each exploded note.
Basic and reference dimensions were getting extracted even if the checkbox for the type of dimension was not selected in the Application Options dialog box. This has been fixed.
Inconsistency in spacing and formatting of fonts for inserted notes was an issue. This has been fixed. Custom fonts will also have the consistent bold and properly spaced attributes.
10-foot size CAD drawings and their exporting was not handled perfectly by InspectionXpert. This has been fixed.
When the diameter UOM was changed from something that was not a part of the default project template type (inches to mm or mm to inches), the UOM of the diameter defaulted to the template default and not what it was changed to. This has been fixed.
While the number of places is correct when you export via Excel, when you export without Excel, the trailing zero following the decimal point was being dropped.This has been fixed.
When the text in the note was longer than the width of the note, the text was not getting wrapped properly and thus sections of the text disappeared. This has been fixed.
Error messages showed up when trying to open a previous package project by double clicking on it. This has been fixed.
Incorrect InspectionLists XML file location prevents project options from saving correctly. The user received an error that the lists are invalid. This has been fixed.
Though the application successfully retrieved the license and the licensed file formats were loaded, no information was displayed in the License Manager. This has been fixed. License should successfully get fetched and connected machines and used file formats information should be displayed in the License Manager.
Knowledge Base Link from Getting Started Tab in 2.0 pointed to a blank site. This has been fixed.
Online Videos Link from Getting Started Tab in 2.0 pointed to the wrong website. This has been fixed.
For a project, balloon size was set but not saved for a document, based on height of first capture by enabling the check box. This has been fixed.
When opening the project and viewing the Characteristic Identification table in German, all the balloon shapes revert to circle no matter what they were in English. Opening the same template in English shows the actual shapes originally saved. This has been fixed.
When multiple DRM protected PDF files were added to a InspectionXpert Project, the application used to go into not responding mode. This has been fixed.
Once you have sub-balloons, you were not able to resize the capture rectangle. Once you merged the sub-balloons to a single balloon, you could again resize the capture rectangle. This has been fixed.
On changing locale to Japanese and returning to English, the Japanese custom subtypes were still present. Now, on coming back to English locale, the Japanese custom sub types are not present.This has been fixed.
Filled in data is changed on mouse wheel scrolling over the combo box without even selecting it. This has been fixed.
Umlaute characters in file path (ä ö ü ß Ä Ö Ü) caused an error message "You do not have permission to write to this folder..." . This has been fixed.
Project balloon appearance settings could not be changed before extraction. This has been fixed. Now the changes can be affected from the ribbon/application options dialog.
Application loaded project created in earlier releases without any error prompt, but the datum characteristics were highlighted in red in table manager(indicating deleted) and no balloon was shown in viewer. This has been fixed.
In some unique cases, Excel COM API error was given on publishing Excel report. This has been fixed. Now the application should successfully publish Excel report to user defined location.
Char zone value for exploded multi-line note was missing. This has been fixed.
Default Project Templates in IX 2.0 did not have "Default Unit of Measure" selected for all Dimension types. This has been fixed and now default unit of measure has been assigned to all types.
For basic dimension, boxes were displayed in Excel reports. This has been fixed. Now, the application should successfully export Excel report and should correctly display basic and reference dimension values. With properly installed InspectionXpert GDT font, the issue will not occur anymore.
When exported to an Excel report with German locale it is found that the Plus tolerance, Minus tolerance, Upper Limit and Lower Limit values in Excel reports did not match the values present in table manager. This has been fixed.
In the past, multiple instances of the application could run simultaneously. This has been fixed. Now, only one instance will be running and an error prompt will show up, if the user attempts to open another instance of the application.
In 'Plus Tolerance/Minus Tolerance' column values were incorrectly displayed with leading zeros removed. This has been fixed.
The tokens exporting symbols only require InspectionXpert GDT font.This has been fixed. Thus, only Nominal GDT, Nominal Text, Full Specification, Requirement tokens will use the GDT font and the other tokens will use the user-defined font.
There was an extraneous table attached to the bottom with no information in it for 2D CAD files. This table has been removed. For 3D CAD files, this table will remain.
A supply chain customer’s version was matched with the IXOD 2.0 version,thus it was not getting installed on the same machine. This has been fixed.
The application crashed on compare-replace when user replaced a multipage pdf with a single page pdf. This has been fixed.
The OCR extraction icons for the custom properties were not visible.This has been fixed. Now, based on the document (PDF/CAD file) they are adaptively shown to be either OCR or SmartExtract.
After re-extraction of a limit dimension, Nominal value field did not display average value. Instead it displays the value in form of 'Upper Limit/Lower Limit'. This has been fixed. Average value will be displayed in Nominal value field when the 'Average of Upper Spec Limit and Lower spec limit' checkbox option is active. This will happen even if the user closes and opens the project again, the setting will be stored.
Using Up/Down Arrow Keys from Keyboard, in Table Manager was not synchronized with Characteristic Panel Movement or the Drawing Viewing Area. This has been fixed.
Previous Export settings of Project were persisting when a new project was created using the same template. This has been fixed.
Default for Exploding notes was checked and exploding. This has been fixed. Paragraphs or Lists will stay as a single note.
Timestamp messages and project compatibility messages were confusing to the user. This has been fixed. If the user creates a project in 5.0 release (shown in resources tab in application options dialog) and tries to open in 4.0 or 4.1 then It shows the timestamp message. If the user creates the project in SP05.1 build and tries to open in SP05.0 release build then the application shows message about project compatibility.
Net-Inspect showed Part Name as the first drawing name in the IXOD2.0 project. This has been fixed.
The balloon appearance settings of the previous project were displayed after revision after closing and saving it and opening a new project. This has been fixed.
For CAD files, the user was unable to select and move the balloon of a single characteristic in a multi-line note set that had been automatically exploded. This has been fixed.
On editing value in the Full Specification field, only single character remains in the Nominal Value field. This has been fixed.
If selection is on a combobox cell in the table manager, delete key/right click delete, did not display the delete characteristic dialog. This has been fixed.
The default mouse behavior settings were set incorrectly. This has been fixed.
After clicking Yes/No on a pop up asking to save the backup file to a location for which write access is denied, application crashes. This has been fixed.
If a user is loading a project from the location for which write access is denied, then a prompt should display to save file at a different location and the file should get saved.
When dimensions are unilateral or one sided, the MeasurementXpert measurement entry displayed an incorrect heat map(range of colors to indicate compliance) according to the setting chosen in the Application Options dialog. This has been fixed.
