Bricscad Updated: Version 9.2.15 has been released. The following new improvements and bug fixes have been made in this release. Please download the latest release from the Bricsys web-site:


SR18870 - Implemented display of clipping frame (if XCLIPFRAME is on) and selection of insert by clipping frame. Limit of undo data buffer was considerably increased.


SR14708, TaskDD793 - VIEWPORT: stretch by _both_ left corners was failing.

SR18313, TaskDD915 - COM: AcadUtility.GetKeyword method did not recognize keywords.

SR18548 - SHADEMODE did not work for certain drawings.

Drawing Explorer: crash in WxWidget tree control in multi-select mode on Windows Vista. The tree control crashed after item deletion. The crash did not occur immediately upon item deletion, but right after focus was received again by the tree control.

SR18745 - Filled entities rendered with incorrect traits in specific circumstances.

SR18986 - SAT files, where the date in the header is placed on an extra new line, could not be read.

SR18946 - ANSI scripts containing double byte characters could no longer be read since the extension for UNICODE scripts in V9.2.12 (SR18677).

SR18984 - DCL: when a list_box is clicked below its last row, the currently selected row is deselected. This issue is fixed by not allowing an empty selection to be set by clicking. This change does not affect a list_box with multiple selection and it does not affect changing the selection by calling set_tile.

SR18998, SR19043 - Crash when erasing associative dimensions and/or their associated entities.

SR19014 - Plotter Configuration Editor and Plot Style Table Editor dialogs were not shown in some cases when MFC extension DLLs were loaded.

Selection problem in non-plan views when using WinOpenGl graphic system device.

HATCH: true color was lost after cut/paste. Changed dwg version used for clipboard to 2004.
