Items improved and/or fixed in the latest Service Pack 6.
There are two bug fixes in this Service Pack 6.
1) Nested Symbol bug fix.
When a multi level symbol is placed, a level 1 symbol, for example, is placed and edited in its properties such as colors and layer. An error message, “Unable to find master definition”, is displayed and the symbols are disappeared. SP6 fixes this bug.
2) DWG translator in paper space mode.
If there is a large solid filled object in dwg drawing, CADVANCE hangs.
SP6 fixes this bug and translates a large solid filled object to Area fill object.
3) Reference Setup. Reference Layer File. Layer # 255
Layer 255 always remains on (VS set) when loading any layer file in the Reference Setup. Layer 255 should always reflect the VS setting (On or Off) in the Ref. Layer file.
SP6 fixes this bug.
4) Reference Setup. Specify Ref. Layer file before Reference drawing is loaded.
Due to un-initialized variable, CADVANCE occasionally crashes depending on the status of the particular memory which points to the un-initialized variable.
SP6 forces the user to specify the Ref. drawing file followed by the Ref.
Layer file, i.e., without Ref. Drawing File, Ref. Layer File setting is not
5) Alter/Arc Extend
Significant improvements have bee made in Alter/Arc Extend function, especially in the trim operation. Though this improvements may not satisfy every conditions for the arc trim operations the users might expect, this improvements should solve several known cases.
