GTWorks™ Enhancements in year 2002

  1. An error with using the function keys CTRL H and CTRL V that was introduced with build 449 has been corrected (release 14.2.0 457) - January 5, 2002
  2. When the full entity selection menu appears for a function (inside region, all of a color range, etc.), a new option has been added at the bottom of the menu to toggle between selecting entities and then choosing to "unselect" some of the selected entities.  This enables the user to select a large region of entities and then "unselect" a few entities that are not wanted for the current function (release 14.2.0 457) - January 5, 2002
  3. The full entity selection menu will be redisplayed when the user chooses the single entity selection option and then presses OP COMP (] or the right mouse button).   Previously, this action completed the selection of entities and advanced the user to processing of the entities chosen up to that point (release 14.2.0 457) - January 5, 2002
  4. The system will no longer select entities multiple times if the user chooses to select by color or entity font.  Previously, if the user chose the same entities again, the system recorded the pointers a second time (or more) and then possible duplicate data was stored in the part or drawing (release 14.2.0 457) - January 5, 2002
  5. The detection of the Network Card Ethernet Address for GTWorks and the Floating License Manager has been improved and should work in most cases when NetBEUI is not loaded (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  6. The GTWorks Floating License feature now supports all network protocols, the most important being TCP/IP (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  7. An error introduced with version 14.2.0 457 that limits the number of degrees of rotation when inserting patterns has been corrected (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  8. Small user sizeable crosshairs are now supported (menu 1.16.1.15 and interface.mf modals file item number 50) (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  9. When the user chooses to delete all points (menu 3.1), only the points displayed are deleted (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  10. The level table initialization function now works properly (menu 5.5.5) (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  11. The on-line help now includes the break line and delta line functions (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  12. The zoom auto max-min function now works properly on NURBS curves with curve fonts other than solid (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  13. The crosshairs no longer extend into the text area at the top of the graphic design space, nor do they extend into the button space at the bottom of the screen (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  14. For the delta line function (menu 10.16), press the [ key or the middle mouse button to delete the last defined segment (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  15. The AI routine aincci now computes the start and end angles for arcs properly when the arc is defined on a rotated Work Coordinate System (WCS) (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  16. For the Projected Entity function (menu 13.11), region selection of entities is supported and points sets are no longer treated differently (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  17. An infrequent error with loading GTWorks files that came from Series 7000 .g1 files (version 12.7 or earlier) containing B-Splines has been corrected (release 14.2.0 468) - February 14, 2002
  18. The GTWorks viewer was updated to include enhancement number 17 above - February 15, 2002
  19. Another infrequent error with loading GTWorks files that came from Series 7000 .g1 files (version 12.7 or earlier) containing B-Splines has been corrected (release 14.2.0 469) - February 20, 2002
  20. An N/C toolpath boundary creation error containing point set entities whose view of definition was not model space has been corrected (release 14.2.0 469, N/C Control 62) - February 21, 2002
  21. The GTWorks viewer was updated to include enhancement number 19 above - February 22, 2002

  23. The REJECT function key ([ or middle mouse button) now is supported when you are prompted to select the second color of the option "All Of A Color Range" from the entity selection menu (release 14.2.0 475) - April 8, 2002
  24. The second color of the option "All Of A Color Range" from the entity selection menu can be a lower color number than the first color selected.  GTWorks internally reverses the numbers to arrive at the desired color range (release 14.2.0 475) - April 8, 2002
  25. The current entity creation attributes of color, line weight, pen number and curve font are now maintained whenever you create a component with the Design Element Library (release 14.2.0 475) - April 8, 2002
  26. The curve font is again properly displayed when using the Design Element Library modals (menu 5.13.15.9) (release 14.2.0 475) - April 8, 2002
  27. The user can now specify the number of copies and the paper source while printing.   These features are available from menu 7.1 (Enhanced Plot II) and menu 7.3 (Quick Plot) (release 14.2.0 479) - June 3, 2002
  28. The number of copies is now handled by the printer if possible.  Previously, the program simply output the plot multiple times (release 14.2.0 479) - June 3, 2002
  29. New item 81 (Paper tray modal) in the system.mf file controls the paper tray prompt for printing.  The default value is -1, "do not set the paper tray". If the value is 0, the program prompts for the tray to use.  Any other value is used to select the paper tray from the list of available trays.  The user is not prompted if the printer only has one paper tray (release 14.2.0 479) - June 3, 2002
  30. New item 35 (Number of copies modal) in the quick_plot.mf file sets the default number of copies to print (release 14.2.0 479) - June 3, 2002
  31. New item 36 (Paper source modal) in the quick_plot.mf file is used to select the paper tray from the list of available trays (release 14.2.0 479) - June 3, 2002
  32. A new AI (application interface) call has been added for plotting.  Aiplot4 has the same parameters as aiplot3, with two additional integers added to the end of the parameter list.  The first integer is the number of copies to print, the second is the number for the paper source (1 - the number of paper sources) (release 14.2.0 479) - June 13, 2002
  33. An infrequent program abort where the crash message states the problem is in routine eif01 has been corrected (release 14.2.0 480) - June 14, 2002
  34. The fix for crashing in routine eif01 has been adjusted to handle all cases of this rare problem (release 14.2.0 481) - July 5, 2002
  35. The recent internal modifications to the plotting functions have been corrected to again allow control by pen number and line weight (release 14.2.0 482) - July 10, 2002
  36. The AI routines aiuse and aiuse3 have been been upgraded to return a correct selected list of entities when the user might have used the REJECT feature that unselects one entity in single select mode  (release 14.2.0 483) - July 30, 2002
  37. A problem with general notes being output into a DXF formatted file where the note was created in a view other than view no. 1 has been corrected (release 14.2.0 484) - September 12, 2002
  38. Data Verify of text based entities now reports the XT and YT Origin Coordinates instead of the Lower Left XT and YT - (release 14.2.0 487) - October 16, 2002
  39. After the first time you run through an Enhanced Plot II session, the next time a new prompt appears to "Replot Last Plot?".  All the previous choices are remembered and used (release 14.2.0 491) - November 25, 2002
