New feature: Design for a new SpatixColor descriptor concept (to be used to implement RGB colors in SPX-files), tune HSVColor structure
Refactor: Some optimizations in the ColorRgbToHsv() and ColorByRgb()
Refactor: Get rid of kludge RGBToUInt() and RGBFromUInt() macros
Refactor: Change linewt_t from 16-bit to 32-bit uint
Fix:EldGetSymbol() for proper applying of transformation (yet needs to be tested)
spatix v021.004 (2021-04-13, expires 2022-04-30)
New feature: FigureTools IxApp workability restored (ported from SpatixC), FigureTools added into the distro
tool to create figure definitions
tool to place figures based on figure definition
"figure-libraries" are not yet supported, all figure definitions are stored in the same (currently opened) SPX file
no tools to "re-define" figure definition
New feature: PhotoTools — restored workability of this tool (not included into the distro)
New feature: PhotoTools — added expiration
New feature: spx2dwg — AutoCAD app now is able to export currently open DWG into SPX file format (not included into the distro)
New feature: Dimension area tool
New feature: Dimension Angle by Elements tool.
New feature: improve responsiveness of mouse operations in View over RDP
new preferences parameter (category: "interface") — if mouse coordinates to be updated on every mouse move in the status bar (if enabled, this does not cause refresh of the whole SpatixMainWindow from the backing store on every mouse move)
disable costly formatting in SpatixCommand::updateAppStatusMessage() in case cursor coordinates are not to be shown
disable backing store and background paining for SCadView widget and its parent (a scroll area whose client area is completely occluded by SCadView OpenGL window)
improve userconf.ini settings for using OS cursor in RDP mono mode. Set SCadView_use3dCursors=always/never/auto in userconf.ini — to force WinAPI or 3D cursor.
Fixed: GdalConverter — missed break in switch()
Fixed: incorrect line style applying in Dimensioning Tools.
Fixed: dimension styles applying in Dimensioning Circle (for callout).
Fixed: copy unrecognized types of user data linkages while converting from DGNv8
Fixed: extending ELM_LINE by fixed value.
Fixed: Main units instead of world units in Extend Segment tool.
Fixed: memory management by CommonElmSmartPainterBuffer class
Fixed: Some DXF import/export improvements:
remove dangling layer_name pointer
improve write-out 64 bit doubles in ASCII mode (remove trailing 0-z after decimal dot in double values)
Avoid redundant call to refillActiveLayers()
New feature: Added polygon area calculation to ElmMeasure (now polygon area can be calculated via Measure Element).
New feature: new check in Elm/EldSetAttr() for data fit into ElmUserAttr structure (see ELM_UATTR_DATA_MAX_SIZE)
Refactor: improve EldGetPlane() and ElmIsFlatPlane() performance for orto-parallel cases
Refactor: move standard rotations to CadMath from SpatixCore\CadView
