    • Backwards Compatibility
      1. If you save a file in this version and then go back to 1.4.1.20 we are not aware of any problems with the file not opening. If you have changed the block style in a file you saved in 1.4.2 you will not be able to change the block style back in 1.4.1.20 easily, however you could refresh the symbols using Update Info in the schedule to return them to OS1 style. The only other issue might be before if you have rings and beams on, it can only be one or the other in 1.4.1.20 and prior.

  1. With the new connect command, you can either just click products, or click a point in between products to force the ‘arc’ in that direction, OR click 2 or more times to make a ‘complicated’ spline between products, eg down a long hallway
  2. Copy now copies connections including bridge tags (as space on source bridge allows)
  3. Copy now ‘copies’ zones, so if a power pack was in Zone A, a new Zone A is created for each copy location.
