In the PythonPart 'SmartStairConverter', the lateral supports on the landing top are now modeled correctly.
In the PythonPart 'SmartStairConverter', the reinforcement content for landing top, flight, and landing bottom is now displayed in the 'Reinforcement generator' tab. The shape generator determines where the calculated as-value is applied.
When selecting the setting 'default configuration - classic', the check mark is now displayed again.
When changing the number of monitors, certain dialogs were displayed outside the workspace; this has now been fixed.
When assigning surfaces, the icon for changing the external path is now available again when using high-resolution monitors.

The tool name in the dialog line, in the input options and in the sub-dialogs is now displayed completely and correctly when using high-resolution monitors.
The pipette is now displayed in the correct position at the crosshairs when using high-resolution monitors.
In the 'Label associatively' tool, the icon and the drop-down for 'Material' and 'Area' are now displayed at the correct position when using high-resolution monitors.
After deactivating the building structure/ derivations in the 'Open on a Project-Specific Basis ...' dialog box, the drawing file selection is no longer changed after reopening the dialog box and selecting the building structure/derivations.
Hatching and patterns in dialog boxes are now displayed recognizably again when using high-resolution monitors.
Texts in dialog boxes and palettes are now displayed in correct size when using high-resolution monitors.
If dialogs are opened outside the screen, they can be moved back to the main screen with the shortcut 'ALT+space'.
When changing the drawing file status in the Object palette, the visibility setting now remains unchanged.
Custom stroke types with text and/or endpoint are now generated correctly.
You can now start and use the quantity indicator in Allplan again.
Directional area activation of 2D elements from left to right has been accelerated.
In certain cases, an incorrect message was displayed when selecting lines and style areas in the wizard; this has now been fixed.
When using Allplan Exchange, the U.S. standard section symbols are now fully displayed in the pdf.
Saving plans as a pdf file with the window toolbar displayed has been accelerated.
When changing the quality in the options in Vulkan mode, in certain cases a background was not fully displayed in the animation window; this has now been fixed.
Several improvements have been made to the PythonParts for 'Automatic Reinforcement' and 'Civil Engineering'.
Views and Sections
When creating fixtures in views and sections of selected elements, they are now displayed during and after creation.
When removing elements in views and sections, labels of fixtures are now preserved.
Moving and copying of sections has been improved.
You can now correctly snap points from 2D fixture foils in views and sections.
After converting views and sections to construction, the 2D data is correctly recognized in the 'Properties' palette and it is no longer linked to the view/section.
When connecting structural objects, the correct position is now checked and corrected if necessary.
The 'Connection Toolbox' has been extended and improved.
When creating window and smart door symbols, the graphics of the 3D view are now displayed in full when using high-resolution monitors.
Using the wizard to open the ‘Conversion for Building Alteration Work' tool and then applying it to a part in the drawing file has been improved.
When creating a roof panel from the wizard, the user attributes are now applied correctly.
The quality of Allplan has further been improved by resolving received crash reports and traceable messages from the Allplan Quality Manager.
When rearranging marks, the tolerance input value and its calculation when comparing positions has been improved.
You can now match a bar shape to another view or section using the 'Convert, Match Elements' tool again.
If the bend to the last segment of a bending shape had a changed bending pin, the last segment was ignored when exporting to the bending machine; this has now been fixed.
In certain cases, direct object modification of placements resulted in duplicate bars; this has now been fixed.
After the pieces for partial and total extracts were checked in the 'Element Information' tool, elements created afterwards were not displayed on the screen or were displayed incorrectly; this has now been fixed.
When exporting reinforcement without an associated precast element to IFC, you will no longer receive an error message.
In the secondary reinforcement, the last defined value for the concrete cover is now noted again.
The lattice girder height calculation for precast slabs now also takes into account the girder assignment according to 'Lattice girder catalog'.
When modifying the PythonPart, the attributes in the linked Precast element are now updated correctly.
When copying Precast elements with closed element plan, a message about reinforcement views was displayed; this is now fixed.
