Thanks for that.. Wow, a lot fixed in that list!

 

The new hidden line options and the centroid options look great. I'll be updating in a couple of hours  ;)

One of the fixes in the notes: User Components still have .fmz files in Component Manager (These were from 8.0.1 project)

Any suggestion getting rid of them?

thanks for the update, but i still cannot store correctly my 2 screen workspace. any attempt to save a workspace with only 2 top icon rows only will fail. when FZ starts up again, always 3 rows are displayed and tool palettes not at their position, as reported previously several times.

LOVE this one "Dragging and dropping a 3D import file to the dock icon will now allow you to import the file on Macintosh."

 

maybe this could have been extended to import a 3d file also if dragged to any active FZ project window.

I tried direct download and seemed to have received version 8.0.1… Unfortunately the fact that it was 8.0.1 and not 8.0.2 was not noticed by me until after the installation was started up and checked for version info…

 

Next i got my non-internet- formZ-machine plugged into ethernet and tried the update….

 

Now i get the message:

 

"formZ failed one or more security check and cannot be updated. Make sure copy is installed correctly and registered."

 

My 8.0.1 has been registered with my name and still indicates it is registered, but perhaps it disapproved the way it was re-installed.

 

I am a family member, please advise next step to update given this circumstance.

 

Thanks

Bo...
You could try to download original 8.0 and then update.
In the past Fmz usually has a link to installf the complete version 8.0.2... When tech gets in they can direct you to it.

Rob,
Will give it another try and see if delete works. There were also empty spaces that I will try to delete in user components.
Thanks

Hi Gentlemen,

 

Glad you are liking the Update!

 

Hi Bo,

 

If you are getting the security check error, this means that you have not registered properly.  Please re-register, and try the update once more.  If you have any further questions or issues:

Thanks Dennis, Ideas are appreciated.

 

Actually there is only one formz8 on this machine.

"....please refer to the original email you received with the product download details to download and install this latest version directly from the release page…."

 

I did find my email, clicked on link there which got me to an 8.0.1 download. Except i did not verify the version, until after installation.

 

I think this might be a spacial case where update programing does not like reinstalling 8.0.1 on top of an older 8.0.1, then updating to 8.0.2…    Or, it would not surprise me if OSX 10.9.5 on my specific 2012 MacPro is adding something to the issue. I get plenty of hiccups on this machine, (a new machine for me, just for formZ8), but simply restarting or rebooting usually fixes issue.

Hello,

 

One new feature in this release is: Artlantis file format is once again supported in formZ Pro.

 

After updated my formz Pro,  I have tried importing or exporting a Artlantis file but not possible. 

 

How is this new feature implemented?

 

Thank you for your help.

 

JOHN

Hi John,

 

Welcome to the forum.  We discovered an issue immediately after we released the patch whereby the ARTL and SKP plugins may not always download to all Mac computers.  

 

We fixed this shortly thereafter, but it sounds like you had already updated by that point.  To restore these plugins, download and decompress the attached archive.  Copy the contents of the folder, and Paste it into your formZ Application: Plugins: FFMT folder:

Then launch (or relaunch) formZ.  Does that restore the plugins for you?

Something that might be worth mentioning.

If you have FZ set up such as I do, it does not create a new document upon launch.

When I go to the "help" menu, the "update" does not appear.

However as soon as I create a new document it does.

See screenshot for clarification.

Hi Noob,

 

Yes, formZ 8.0.1 did need to have a project window open to Register or Check for Update.  That restriction has been removed with the 8.0.2 update...
