This is easily accessible from our options dialog.


One can locate their templates and our software will indicate if a listed one is missing.


The update includes the ability to set proper defaults for classification, as well as specific defaults for each kind, including user-added types.

Stacked dimensions, or entities, may be displayed to your liking. They can now be shown with the new set of types, sub-types, and units, so that following the imperial or SI (metric) system will not be an issue.

Notes will now refrain from disappearing or looking different while the user looks at parts in different views.


You now have the ability to own your own templates and display them proudly in your Project Templates window. They will always show if they are in the folder.


  • Templates will remain listed and selectable for the next project. An earlier project's template will not influence a new project's template.
  • No issues with bringing in projects from InspectionXpert OnDemand 1.0. Let's say you balloon using InspectionXpert OnDemand 1.0 and customize your balloons, those balloons will remain with you and unchanged in InspectionXpert OnDemand 2.0.
  • Copy and pasting balloons across multiple drawings will be handled perfectly every time with renumbering and retaining the size of the original capture rectangle. The user can relocate the balloons as they are pasting it if required.
  • To understand settings for balloons in the application options dialog and ribbon options, please refer to our knowledge base article regarding Defining Ballooning Properties.
  • The table manager is monitoring any changes with characteristics throughout the application and updates automatically. Example: When a characteristic is updated in the properties manager, that change will be reflected in the table manager.
  • We have fixed issues with multiple pasting being enabled. Once you paste two characteristics in the table manager for a project, the same characteristics can't be pasted again.
  • Issues with merging and un-merging hole callouts have been fixed.
