form•Z v9.0.1 now available

Recommended Posts

form•Z v9.0.1 (#A107) 

We have posted v9.0.1 today to address some reported issues with formZ v9. This version can be now installed using the link you received with your v9 codes. Here is a list of some of the more important improvements:


• When the favorites menu is invoked (Space bar by default), pressing the space bar again will open and position the tool options palette on the screen at the location of the favorites tools. This makes for an easy way to access the Tool Options without needing to navigate to the location of the palette. The palette is returned to its original state when the mouse moves out of the newly positioned tool options palette or the favorites menu shortcut is selected again.
• Pop-up Tool Options is a new key shortcut available in the Palettes group of the Key shortcuts manager. This invokes the tool options at the mouse location as with the favorites menu without needing to go through the favorites menu first. There is no default key combination assigned for this option.
• The color popup in the Attributes tab of the Inspector now works properly when clicking on the arrow indicator.
• Export PSD no longer generates empty files under certain situations.
• The palette dock is now maintained in the Cone Of Vision environment.
• Shaded work and shaded full now show the proper color when Copy and paste of objects which have materials with matching names.
• Certain geometry no longer causes a crash when using object snaps and the mouse rolls over the object.
• Create Reference File no longer includes references to other attached reference files in the newly created reference file.
• Create Reference File now warns when replacing a reference file that is already being referenced by the project.
• Create Reference File now handles single object reference files properly.
• Docking and undocking certain palettes now works properly.
• Editing Components in the project window has been improved.
• The parameters tab of the inspector now works properly with components.
• Components placed with the “Place on Active Layer” option now explode properly.
• The “Getting Started” tutorials are now accessible from the startup screen again.
• Holding Command/Ctrl and dragging docked palette will allow precision
placement/force placement
    
OS X specific 
• Installer now works better on OS X 10.15.3
• Animations played in the form•Z window now display properly.
• Closing the Inspector palette, no longer leads to crashes. 
• Changing the direction of the Arc 3 again works with tapping command key.

Windows specific 
• Hide palettes no longer leads to extra margins shown around the palettes when un-hiding. 
    
Draft Layout
• Title blocks now work as expected.
• The place image tool now works as expected.
• Components update properly when a layout file is opened.
• Paste from Model/Paste from Draft have been improved.
• Compounds from v6 files are now converted properly.

Additional stability and performance improvements.

When we use the link that we received with our V9 codes, we download the 9.0.1. is it OK?

Why the update item in the menubar does not work?

V 9.0.1 is the latest version (it is newer than v9.0.0.3).  This version can be installed from the link you received with your v9 codes (ie this page  always has the latest installers).

The update item in the menus will notify you when there are new versions and direct you to the download page. We can no longer update the software with the patching system that we have used in past as changes to application security on both Mac OS and Windows have made this method obsolete.

Why not simply publish the link to the download page here, respectively with your Post, Tech ?

This forum is open (ie you do not need to log in just to read) and as such it is readable by bots that scan the web and look for links and email addresses etc. we prefer these links not be subject to DNS and other types of attacks that will inevitably slow or limit your access to the download. The update item in the Help menu can be used to check for a new version and direct you to the download page. By default form•Z will auto check for updates every 7 days (this can be controlled in the preferences).

Hi Tech,

We were not able to update by menu/help/search for update, as we received the following message: "no available update".

We updated with the link we received with our V9 codes; we are now FZ 9.0.1.

By the way we updated too, our maxwell 5 plugin for FZ9 freshly published the 02/06.

Everything works fine! Thanks.

This is most likely coated by a fire wall or other internet issue that is blocking access to our updater message. We will see if this message can be improved.
