Update worked flawlessly on Mac OS 10.9.5. Held existing License in place so i did not need to re-enter.

Thanks for all the hard work Support. I do have to report though, that on the mac, writing a .dae file from a simple cube doesn't quite work well yet. I assigned a formZ predefined brick material to the cube, exported it as .dae, and when imported into sketchup, the brick material does not come in.
All works well on formZ 7 (on the mac) as well as formZ 8.01 on win8.

So far so good! Glad some of reported bugs were fixed.

On my MacBook Pro the tool dock and the coordinates/distance palette still not working properly. Many times the tool dock got 4 rows instead of 3 as i want, the coordinates/distance palette disappears behind the tool dock when modeling.

Yes, the SKP and DAE will require considerable work for formZ 8 on OS X, but we are working on it. For now, if you use formZ v7 for Importing or Exporting these formats, you should be able to work around it.
Sorry you are having issues with your dock. It sounds like you do not have your Input Palette actually in the dock (if you did, it would not go behind). If that is not a complete solution, please see the following portion of our previous post:
-- If you have any new issues or other feedback, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the details so we can investigate it.
Please also include your system info, and a screen capture of before and after the issue.

Good to see the updates rolling out Tech,
You've mentioned in another thread that you've found the cause of the normals based smoothing errors I've reported on a few occassions. Is the fix expected in the next update revision?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, the fix for the smoothing issue is quite extensive, but that is the plan.
Yes, the DAE and SKP formats pretty much require a complete re-write now that it is 64 bit, but we are working on this for the not too distant future.

I just want to mention that the update went fine other than if the startup action (in formZ prefs) is set to "open" instead of "new project". One has to go to file > New Project > to make the register dialogue come up.
It had me stumped for a few minutes there....
Posted 10 November 2014 - 02:55 PM
Yes, that should be available regardless of whether a project is open.

Also, maybe you should remind users to copy their plugins across as well, before they dump the old version
Posted 10 November 2014 - 03:16 PM
Yes, and the auto-update that this version restores will automatically keep these in the future...
