    Tech got a reaction from andrew in formZ v9.0.3 Now available   
    Hugo,
    We have not been able to reproduce the issue you are describing regarding the dimensions or 2D graphics moving. Can you please send a file to us (support@formz.com) that exhibits the problem so we can investigate? 
    We are working on the update speed for layout. from. v9.0.3 actually had some improvements, but we are working on more!

    Sorry if you feel that way. We recognize that you have given a lot of good feedback over the years and if something was missed its unintentional. 
    In 2018 we deployed a professional CRM system to manage tech support emails to make sure nothing gets missed. This system assigns each new email a ticket number that allows for us to track the back and forth communication on requests for assistance and reported issues. Shortly after you submit an email you will get an confirmation email that contains the ticket number for your reference. We checked the system and found all of the tickets that you had initiated since we started using this system have been answered and closed. We will need a bit more time to look through older emails to determine what was missed.
    Please continue to give constructive feedback as it is important for us to hear the the things that we can do better.

    Tech got a reaction from Martin Malinski in Suface solid (two sides)   
    Surface solids are an oxymoron! They are topologically a solid but as they have no geometric volume, they give many modeling operations fits. Surface solids served a purpose at a time when computing resources were limited and they could be used as a proxy for a wall or shelled surface. We dropped these with v7 as the effort to make special exceptions for surface solids in tools and export formats going forward out weighed their usefulness in todays computing environment. 
    Surface solids should be cleaned and separated if they are encountered during import. setz if you have and example of these slipping through please email the details to us (support@formz.com)

    Chris,
    This is working properly as far as we can tell. See video from 9.0.3....

    This is simply not true. Many of the issues that you reported have been addressed. Most of the other issues we could not reproduce. Sorry it took longer than normal to answer your email but please understand that we are all working in less than ideal circumstances these days! You did receive a response today.

    New stuff
    “Superimpose” is a new option in the Underlay options of the Reference Plane Parameters palette. When selected, the underlay is Superimposed in shaded views instead of depth sorted. This is most useful when combined with the transparency slider to see the undelay image through a shaded image.
    “Give Guide Snaps Priority” is a new option in the snap options Palette. When selected, Guide Snaps are given priority over object snaps (when both are enabled). If the cursor is close to both a guide and a snappable point/edge/face, the location will be snapped to the guide rather than the point/edge/face. When this option is disabled, the opposite rule is applied. This option is now on by default by popular request as it makes the guides more functional in shaded rendering modes. The option can be controlled with a key shortcut as well (Key Shortcuts manager).
    General improvements
    Export of hidden line images to pixel based formats (TIFF/PNG/JPG etc.) now works properly.
    Underlay images no longer disappear when switching from wireframe to shaded full and the back to wireframe on machines with certain graphics cards.
    Components with Flat/Cubic/Spherical texture map controls now render properly in RenderZone. 
    Using Reduce Mesh tool no longer crashes on certain objects.
    Files with mirrored components now show the components properly when saving and re-opening the file.
    Curve and Surface Formula tools now show all the formulas in the Interface.
    View navigation in the Decals and Classic Texture Map dialog now works properly. 
    The “Pick By” and “Assign” options in the Classic Texture Map dialog now work properly. 
    Door/Window component’s are now are placed at the proper depth.
    The Section tool now properly honors the Status of objects (Ghost or Delete).
    Windows specific 
    The Transform tool no longer crashes when entering a second value for the Scale option. 
    Draft/Layout
    Printing or exporting to PDF no longer misses some elements.
    Printing or exporting to PDF now includes title blocks properly.
    Printing from draft space now works as expected.
    Image elements no longer have a border when printed or exported to pdf.
    The Layout content tools no longer become randomly dimmed.
    Layout frames now update properly when the model is changed.
