    IntelliCAD-6.3-Released-By-IntelliCAD-Technology-Consortium

    IntelliCAD 6.3 was released 2/16/2007.

    New Features:

    Work with DWG 2007 files

    IntelliCAD supports opening, modifying, printing, and saving drawings in DWG 2007 format. The DWG 2007 format is now the default format in which IntelliCAD drawings are saved.

    Create and edit color books

    Now you can create and edit color books, which help you organize collections of colors, right from IntelliCAD.

    Work with images

    IntelliCAD Professional version includes enhanced imaging features to help you work with images in your drawings. Working with images is similar as in previous IntelliCAD versions, with easy-to-use features located on the Image menu in IntelliCAD.

    Use new layout viewport features

    There are several new features for layout viewports:

    Manage character sets for drawings

    IntelliCAD allows you to manage which character set is assigned to a drawing. This unique feature can be very helpful when sharing or distributing drawings in geographic regions where several languages are used that require different character sets to display text properly.

    Reverse the zoom direction of the mouse wheel

    Instead of zooming in and out by moving the mouse wheel forward and backward, you can reverse the settings to zoom in when spinning the mouse wheel backward and zoom out when spinning the wheel forward. This can be especially helpful if you use the mouse with your left hand.

    Use new and enhanced system variables

    New system variables include: 3DDWFPREC, DIMARCSYM, DWGCODEPAGE, IMAGEHLT, RASTERVERNUM, RTDISPLAY, UCSVP, and ZOOMWHEELL.

    Enhanced system variables include: DELOBJ, FACETRATIO, HALOGAP, HIDEPRECISION, OBSCUREDCOLOR, OBSCUREDLTYPE, OLEQUALITY, and TEXTEVAL.

    New system variables supported for DWG file compatibility: CAMERADISPLAY, CAMERAHEIGHT, CMATERIAL, CSHADOW, DEFAULTLIGHTING, DEFAULTLIGHTINGTYPE, DIMFXL, DIMFXLON, DIMJOGANGLE, DIMLTEX1, DIMLTEX2, DIMLTYPE, DIMTFILL, DIMTFILLCLR, DRAGVS, DWFFRAME, DWFOSNAP, DWGCHECK, GRIDDISPLAY, GRIDMAJOR, INTERFERECOLOR, INTERFEREOBJVS, LATITUDE, LEGACYCTRLPICK, LIGHTGLYPHDISPLAY, LIGHTLISTSTATE, LOFTANG1, LOFTANG2, LOFTMAG1, LOFTMAG2, LOFTNORMALS, LOFTPARAM, LOGNITUDE, NORTHDIRECTION, OSOPTIONS, PERSPECTIVE, PSOLHEIGHT, PSOLWIDTH, PUBLISHALLSHEETS, SHADOWPLANELOCATION, SHOWHIST, SOLIDHIST, STEPSIZE, STEPSPERSEC, SUNSTATUS, TIMEZONE, UCSDETECT, VSBACKGROUNDS, VSEDGEJITTER, VSEDGEOVERHANG, VSEDGES, VSEDGESMOOTH, VSFACECOLORMODE, VSFACEHIGHLIGHT, VSFACEOPACITY, VSFACESTYLE, VSHALOGAP, VSHIDEPRECISION, VSINTERSECTIONCOLOR, VSINTERSECTIONEDGES, VSINTERSECTIONLTYPE, VSISOONTOP, VSLIGHTINQUALITY, VSMATERIALMODE, VSMONOCOLOR, VSOBSCUREDCOLOR, VSOBSCUREDEDGES, VSOBSCUREDLTYPE, VSSHADOWS, VSSILHEDGES, and VSSILHWIDTH.

    More fixes

    Technical Notes:

    Working with DWG 2007 files

    The DWGCHECK feature in AutoCAD 2007 can cause a message to appear when a user opens IntelliCAD files in AutoCAD 2007. The message states that the file to be opened was created with an application other than AutoCAD.

    Hiding 3D geometry in layout viewports

    In some instances, 3D geometry is not hidden correctly when using the Hide command in layout viewports (the display may be distorted). Before using the Hide command, set the UCSs on the Model and Layout tabs to World so that the results of the Hide command are correct.

    Overriding dimension arrowheads

    Dimensions created in Autodesk® AutoCAD® 2007 that have dimension style overrides for arrowhead variables dimblk, dimblk1, dimblk2, or dimldrblk can lose the overrides if edited in IntelliCAD.

    SDS Development

    SDS DLLs built with earlier versions of IntelliCAD are not binary compatible with IntelliCAD 6.3. You will need to rebuild your SDS applications using the IntelliCAD 6.3 sds.lib and sds.h files.

    Certain command names removed

    The following command names are obsolete and have been removed from IntelliCAD: REDIT, RASTERIN, -RASTERIN, and RCLIP. Their corresponding command names are: IMAGE, IMAGEATTACH, -IMAGEATTACH, and IMAGECLIP.
