Hi - starting a catch-all thread here to hopefully collect insights on 1.6, as needed.
NOTE: form files written with 1.6 are not backward compatible - just means that if you have a project you are working on and you write it back out in 1.6 and IF there are issues, you cannot go back to 1.5.2 with that file. I’ve kept 1.5.2 around just in case and I am naming my .form files written with V1.6 explicitly with “1.6” just until I get familiar with it - so I do not mix up my files.
ISSUE: SELECTION PROBLEM WITH MULTIPLE STLs
I am having an issue right off the bat with opening multiple stls in a single .form file. The issue seems to be related to selection of the objects after loading. Everything loads file, but then I can no longer select the individual stl objects. If I close and open the file, I still cannot select anything. The only way I can clear the problem seems to be to quick preform 1.6, and restart and then reopen my .form file. Then I can select objects normally. This does not seem to be an issue with single stl imports. And it does not seems to happen always, but it is reproducible. Just create a new form file, multi-select > 3 stl files, and load. You will see one stl selected as current, but when you try to select something else, everything gets unselected and you are stuck until you restart Preform.
LOST FEATURE: no keyboard control for layer up down with arrow change
I used to use the arrow up/down keys to single step quickly through layers to see where potential failures were going to occur. I like the new ability to incrementally rotate the view with arrow keys, but there seems to no longer be a way to single step through layers. Could we perhaps have that on some other keys - maybe control or shift up/down arrows?
