DS|Design v6.4
Uncluster Tool, Enhancements, Updated AutoCAD Compatibility, and Fixes 

New Tool:
  • Uncluster: You'll find this tool in the Edit [Modify] tool box. Cluster a group of plants using the newly rebuilt Cluster tool (found in on the DynaSCAPE sidebar folder). Then to uncluster, select the new Uncluster tool in the Edit [Modify] toolbox, left click on the group(s) you wish to uncluster and then right-click. Voila! You have successfully used the new Uncluster tool!
    • Note: This tool will not work on plants grouped before this update.
  • Excel Export: Plant and Material Excel Reports have been updated to use formulas to calculate total prices, and show the total price. We've also added unit price.
  • SketchUp Export: The most recent version of SketchUp is now supported.
    • Special note: there is a known issue with how Windows Defender interacts with the export function. We have developed a clear set of instructions to ensure you do not experience this issue. 
  • Rearrange Figure Categories & Favorites - Several usability improvements have been made to Figures and Favorites:
    1. Figures Panel
      • Increased  width and height of the figure categories drop down list
      • Temporary alphabetical sorting the contents of a figure category by right clicking a figure and then clicking "Sort Alphabetically." Note: This sorting is temporary. A figure category can be permanently sorted in Tools > Library Manager > More > Sort Figures Automatically
    2. Favorites Panel
      • Reorder favorites by right clicking and selecting Move Up or Move Down
  • Rearranging the Figure Library ListA new Library List Sorting tool has been added to the Library Manager and can be accessed by clicking Sort. It can be used to change the display order of libraries. A Reset Library List function facilitates restoring the optimized list distributed with DS|Design should a client wish to return to the original list or restore an unintentionally removed library.
  • Copying and pasting large documents with many associated entities should no longer cause Design to crash. This mostly affected drawings imported from AutoCAD.
  • The Support phone number on the missing PDF Printer error message has been corrected.
  • Fixed an issue when upgrading Design where users' llist.inf files get too big and crash Design when it opens.
  • The AutoCAD export function will now process the invalid characters correctly. If one comes up, it will replace it with an underscore "_". 
  • When Performance Settings is set to Hardware Rendering Mode, zooming in and out should no longer cause Design to leak memory and report high amounts of memory used in Task Manager.
  • To boost performance and reduce the lag that used to occur when copying or moving items with shadows, entities will no longer include shadows during tracking.
  • Clicking "Online User Manual" on the Help menu loads the correct page containing the manual on the new website.
  • The installer and About menu have been updated to version 6.4 Feb 2015.
