Project Status Filter - BC Connect File Open
For users with the BC Connect® software integration turned on, an enhancement has been added to allow users to view inactive (or Complete) projects. Hiding inactive projects is defaulted to on and will behave the same as previous installs. When Hide Inactive Projects is unchecked, the list will repopulate and show all projects regardless of status. If edits are required, then a Save As would be forced.
Blocking Interference Resolution
When a blocking panel intersects a flush beam, the panel will automatically be cut to avoid interference.
