- Curtain wall mirroring issue fixed.
- Wall layer wraps are displayed with the correct ending in 2D.
- Wall layer wraps in Cut-away 3D view mode are fixed.
- Creating custom tiled roof with Create similar command is fixed.
- Push/Pull command on multilayer walls fixed.
- Empty project Lighting plan crash fixed.
- Refresh command in the header of Section windows.

2021 Build 412 Release
Fixed an issue where the Wallview in image representation mode doesn't display correctly the KBB elements.
2021 Build 400 Release
Minor new features and extensions:
MSAA requires Graphics Cards with G3D Mark at least 3000.
- Storey (level bounded) parameters can be linked to to another storey in case of defining the base of element. It means you can link e.g. the slab support base elevation to Current floor + 1 Top of Structure.
- Drawing rename command in Project Navigator was sometimes unavailable, fixed.
- Properties panel: The list of styles is displayed in alphabetical order.
- Doors and windows consignments. The radius of the bubble in% is considered a minimum value. If the length of the entered text requires a circle with a larger radius, it is automatically calculated.
-For multilayer walls, change the base height / height when multiple walls are selected in the property grid: Layer 0 (because its value is displayed) takes the value specified on the PG for each wall, and the other layers change so that the layers retain their relative heights.
Layer 0 (because its value is displayed) takes on a new value for each wall, and the other layers retain the height difference from layer 0.
- Backup Archive Period (in weeks) is 4 weeks instead of 12 by default. Daily backup copies of projects are archived for recovery purposes.
- Fixed an issue with saving elements setting to My template: updated for door, window, column, beam, picture on the wall, object, beam, curtain wall, wall niche types.
Build 342 Release
Minor new features and extensions:
- New command: wall layers can be assigned to a design phase.
E.g. The new insulation layer of the wall is not displayed in the Existing plan state. In the New construction plan state it is displayed.
Attention! The program restricts the display of all phases at once. In this case, it shows only the existing phases.
- New command: KBB cabinet opening direction can be displayed in wall view, schedules and tags.
Location: Wall view properties dialog, Opening direction symbol properties,
Schedule: Schedule properties dialog, Opening direction symbol properties,
Tags: Tag properties dialog, Opening direction symbol properties.
- New feature: Convert light source visibility commands.
5 commands show the status of lights in DirectX11: All lights on/ All lights off/ Only one light on/ Additional light on/ Additional light off.
- Furniture editor, electric switch, shades, led strip dialogs: after each change, switched to optimal zoom in dialog preview. The dialog keeps the current view now.
- Fixed an issue with project navigator accidental misalignment.
- Vector 3D view copying works correctly even with CTRL-C shortcut.
- Fixed an issue with rendering: fixed incorrect appearance of transparent surfaces.
- DWG export from visible layers can be turned on/off with a new button.
- Fixed an issue with marker appearance when captured screen area is less than 10 cm.
- Correct consideration of visible floors when updating a plot layout.
- Fixed an issue with wall view, section, elevation hatch priority error.
- Light source management dialog: deleting the last light source moved objects to 0 m floor height fix.
- Automatic update of tiling contour: if the user has also performed a custom tiling operation, the reallocation of tiles in this floor space - when automatically updated - is disabled. In this case, only the contour of the existing tiles will be recalculated, taking into account the new boundary of the footprint.
- Using One drive as default drawing library is not allowed.
- Raster image cannot be edited on visible floor.
- MEP pipes can also be directly joined using the Automatic Join procedure.
- Anti-aliasing has been made two-level. GPU hardware supported Multi-Sample Anti-aliasing (MSAA) displays better edge quality lines on the screen, but requires at least 3000 G3D Mark graphics cards. Location: options - graphics - visual effects".
- Print tabular text: for fixed print character heights, the the border may overlapped the text.
- Symbolic representation of wall lights in the lighting plan remains fixed to the wall.
- Fixed an issue with slab clay block 3D generation error.
- Fixed an issue with FBX import 3D mesh geometry.
- Copy command reorganized. Executed in a cycle similar to CTRL-C CTRL-V command. After pressing Enter, it puts the selection back to the original element.
- Colored vectorial Wall view's hatches are displayed in the correct order automatically.
- Door opening 3D animation on library doors works generally with some exceptions.
- The Instance ID of doors and windows is displayed in consignments. It does not request the radius of the bubble, but always calculates it automatically based on the length of the text you enter.

- In the case of door and window dimensioning, if there is a hole, the frame thickness does not reduce the displayed dimension value
- Truss could not be generated in 3D
- Ifc export: an insulated column with a separate color

- The color of the paper model can be set in the Options - Display - Visual Effects panel
