Dimension 7.0-5 Minor Release

Enhancements

  • Improved several aspects of dragging/dropping measurements/annotations
    • Fixed issues with scale details and dragging (Copy/Move and from favorites)
    • Measurements are no longer allowed to be dragged over multiple scale details and/or the drawing
      * A ‘no drag/drop’ cursor will appear when a measurement would occupy multiple scale details and/or the drawing
    • While dragging measurement(s) across scale details, we now resize to the scale detail
    • When over a scale detail, all measurements must all fit in the detail as they would be scaled for that scale detail
    • Measurements are now ‘polynomial aware’, instead of always being ‘rectangular’. For example, a diamond shaped measurement will no longer be detected as over a scale detail when it is actually outside it because now we use the polynomial shape and not a rectangle
    • Measurements/annotations are no longer allowed to be dragged off the drawing
      * A ‘no drag/drop’ cursor will appear when a measurement would have points outside the drawing
