Hotfix Allplan 2019-1-8

Release Notes

General

We edited and corrected various messages of Quality Reporter. As a result, Allplan is more stable and reliable.

Allplan runs faster due to various means.

Data conversion

In certain cases, Allplan 2018 or Allplan 2019 did not convert some general 3D objects delimited by curves that were created in Allplan 2017. We solved this problem.

Basic features

You can use the clipboard to copy several drawing files with reinforcement, views, and sections to another drawing file.

Layout editor

Allplan exports certain OLE objects in a drawing file or layout correctly to PDF format.

Print preview and PDF export display reinforcement and fills in the correct order.

The positions of labels in views and sections do not change within layout windows in layouts.

User-defined objects, libraries

Smart symbols

When you replace all instances of a smart symbol by using “Replace Smart Symbol, SmartPart”, Allplan positions the replaced smart symbols correctly.

PythonParts

It is now easier to resize PythonParts.

After you have resized PythonParts, Allplan updates the parameters of the PythonParts automatically.

Allplan correctly resizes PythonParts that belong to a group.

When you modify individual PythonParts that belong to a group, the group numbers of these individual PythonParts do not change.

Teamwork

Allplan Share

A user modifies and closes a drawing file while this drawing file is open in reference mode on the computers of other users. Now Allplan loads the modified drawing file before updating the data required by associative views and sections.

In certain cases, it was not possible to copy a local project to Bimplus; the “project is in use” message appeared. We solved this problem.

You can use privilege sets for layers after new project editors have been added.

Workgroup, Allplan Share

A user modifies and closes a drawing file while this drawing file is open in reference mode on the computers of other users. Now Allplan locks this drawing file, loading the modified drawing file before updating the data required by associative views and sections.

Architecture

Planes

You can use reference surfaces to define the bottom levels or top levels of certain opening shapes with fixed heights.

Attributes

When you “Assign Attributes to Elements”, Allplan ignores the components that are invisible in the Objects palette.

You can use “Change Archit. Properties” to change 3D objects with architectural attributes.

Annotations

The “Trades” - “Concreting work” reports correctly analyze floor slabs that take their heights from a local reference surface and that contain openings.

Views and sections

Sections correctly display rotated components with hatching when you select the “hatching in component direction” option.

We enhanced the bar-based placement of bars within a placement that is in a different drawing file.

Engineering

Bar reinforcement

You can edit a bar placement in a view or section more quickly by using “Stretch Entities”.

We enhanced the bar-based placement within bars with hooks.

Components with reinforcement remain unchanged when you save the data multiple times as a custom NDW, by using the clipboard, and as a drawing file with resources.

The full schema remains unchanged when you modify the spacing of a placement by means of direct object modification.

When you select several full schemas and change the bending radius and the parameter for length calculation, the diameters of the bars remain unchanged in the full schemas and the legend.

You can insert a partial schema, which was saved as a symbol, in the drawing file without seeing a message.

When you modify placements, Allplan no longer updates all partial schemas. Partial schemas that are not affected by the modification remain unchanged.

Mesh reinforcement

The “Copy and Mirror” tool selects meshes correctly when you select these meshes as an entity group by selecting and holding the Shift key while clicking.

An edge-based placement of a mesh shape in a new view does not change the look of existing bars and meshes.

When you use “Modify Offset” to change a mesh that you placed multiple times by using “Place Individually”, Allplan updates the mesh type and mark number automatically. When you “Move” all meshes, the individual meshes do not change.

Planbar

You can save detailed elements of precast elements with element plans as symbols.
