>>> BricsCAD V 13.1.12 - New & enhanced features

- ASSEMBLY MODELING: Mechanical components can now be inserted by dragging them from Windows Explorer and dropping them in the active document.
- DISPLAY: implemented gradient hatch display for rendered mode.



- RENUMBER command: auto-renumbers all sheets in the sheetset.
- PUBLISH command: if BACKGROUNDPLOT > 1, the sheetset is published in the background.
- sheetsets are now saved automatically without user interaction.
- the 'New Sheet Set' dialog now allows creating an empty sheetset.
- added drag and drop to reorder sheets and subsets in the Drawing Explorer Sheets tree.


- improved the 'reset' behavior.
- SCALELISTEDIT command for the command line.
- added multiple selection in the scale list edit dialog.
- using 'Cancel' inside 'Add' and 'Delete' processing returns us to the main prompt, instead of stopping the command.
- DISPLAY: the display is now updated immediately if a visual style is changed in the Drawing Explorer, and regenmode is set to 'On'.
- HELP: added a help button to the Publish dialog, and corrected it in the Working Sets dialog.
- Previously bit 3 of QAFLAGS was used to suppress the audit results on commandline. Now it causes AUDIT to produce a minimal report, with just entitycount, errorcount and fix count, both on commandline and in file.
