Hi Robert,

 

Yes, (we also got your email about this).  Most workspaces work fine, but something about the ones you (and Mojo) had need to be handled better.

Have there been any improvements to GUI / workspace / pallette management in 8.5?

 

Unfortunately not, I was really hoping...

Gentlemen,

 

We have just updated the Beta version to build 9521.  This version is the same as the previous one except that it now uses its own autodessys: formZ 8.5 preference folder so that it won't interfere with the previous version, and you won't have issues with the Layout Workspace appearing in the formZ project, etc...

 

Keep the emails coming if you have any further feedback!  ;)

V8.02 and V8.5 work fine together now.

I have been trying out the beta on my PC. It seems to have effected layout in 8.5 as it will no longer open just hangs up could use help to fix this. Also creating hidden lines in the new layout software seems to be a lot slower that in 8.0

Hi Flakie,

 

We have seen a few PC's where the main formZ Program: File Menu: New Layout command is not working properly.  (This will be fixed with the next update coming soon.)  Layout is now a separate program, so just go to the formZ 8.5 Beta folder and manually run the formZ Layout.exe.

 

We are not aware of cases where Hidden Line is slower in 8.5 than in 8.0 (in general, 8.5 should be quite a bit faster than 8.0).  If you have a case, please time your renderings, and if you have a case that is slower in the new version, please send it to us so we can see why this might be.

I'm getting a warning the my licence will expire soon. Should I worry about this? Will the new release be out before?

Cool, thanks! I'm enjoying some of the new features and refuse to go back to the older version.
