- PartyCAD was not finding the Help Videos
on the PartyCAD CD. Fixed
- Added debugging code to image manager code
- Allow PartyCAD10 to work with PartyCAD11 serial numbers
- Art would cover text at times in Layout Page. Fixed
- Saving a page via the Save Button in manual projects caused PartyCAD
to stall. Fixed
- Revision 10.1.67
- Improved PartyCAD performance when a page
is saved by a different name in Layout Page
- Projects containing a PartyCAD generated \COPYX\ folder can now be
deleted in the Project Manager
- Sales Tax and Deposit amounts are now handled correctly in printed
- Handling of background pictures and drawn landscapes have been

conditions - fixed.
10/23/08 - Revision 10.1.66
- Adjusted Picture Show and Virtual Reality
to correctly handle unanticipated screen repaints
- Revision 10.1.64
- Vista tweaks
- If a system did not have a C drive, PartyCAD and the PartyCAD update
program failed. Fixed
- In some rare circumstances, grouping data
may become corrupted in the Furnish module. The solution is to click
Options/ Break All Groups, which removes all grouping data without
damaging your design. There was a bug, however, where if you had groups
of tents in your design, Break All Groups would fail with an error. This
has been fixed.
- Revision 10.1.55
- If you happened to save an arrangement
under one of the names PartyCAD uses for storing data in its standard
furniture libraries, furniture from that library could no longer be
loaded in the current project. Fixed.
Support for PDFs of large pages.
In Layout Page you can select
the size of a page in two ways:
by clicking New when you start the Layout Page
by loading an existing page and clicking Options/
In the menu that then appears, you can set a size based
on the capabilities of your default printer, or you can click the
Custom Size radio button and enter any size you wish. If a custom
size is larger than your printer can handle, only part of the page will
be print, but you can save such a page to a PDF file by clicking
File/ Save as PDF, and then view and print the resulting page with
PDF software such as Adobe Reader. Typically these programs have many
more printing options than does PartyCAD. The only bit of oddness with
this process is that the page border will not show, but if you want a
border around your page, you can add one manually by using the Create
Drawn Part button at the top left of the Layout Page screen.
In the past, such oversized PDFs were not properly
handled by PartyCAD, but that problem has been addressed in build
- A few users have reported that their views
saved in the VR module were not correct, either showing just a part of
the desired image or nothing at all except their desktop. Fixed.
PartyCAD now extracts views in a way that is, hopefully, not prone to
- Revision 10.1.52
- Line drawings with more than 32k lines
sometimes caused PartyCAD to crash. Fixed.
- Revision 10.1.51
- While in Layout Page, clicking the virtual reality picture causes you
to transfer to the VR module, where you can make modifications. However,
If while in VR you created a movie, PartyCAD became confused and often
failed after you clicked the Return button to return to the Layout Page
module. This behavior has been fixed by no longer allowing movies to be
created when you arrive at the VR module from Layout Page. To create VR
movies, click on the camcorder icon in the Main Menu.
- A hint: The Party Wizard automatically creates a project Picture Show
for you, but since this is already set up for you, you are not
automatically placed in Edit mode when you click the Picture Show icon
on the Main Menu and enter the Picture Show module. This behavior may
make it seem as though you cannot edit these wizard related Picture
Shows. Not so. Once you are in Picture Show, click Edit in the menu bar
to enter Edit mode, where you can add or delete art and movies to the
show. When you are done with your editing, click Run in the menu bar to
run your show.
5/5/08 - Revision 10.1.50
- In the Party Wizard, if the name of your project contained a period,
virtual reality art was missing from the generated party. Fixed. Periods
are now replaced by underscores in the folder name for such projects,
but the project name may still contain periods.
4/10/08 - Revision 10.1.49
- In Furnish, certain saved arrangement with many groups would not
- In some cases, the VR module would fail when started from the Furnish
module after a tent had been modified with the Tent Wizard. Fixed.
- When working with complex tents, the Furnish module would appear to
freeze when returning from the Tent Wizard or when the tent was
selected. In fact the program was not frozen, there was just a lot of
behind the scenes work to do. PartyCAD now shows an hourglass cursor
while such work is in progress.
3/4/08 - Revision 10.1.48
-While in Draw within the Furnish
module, if you clicked the Zoom button but then changed your mind and
clicked Cancel, not only was the zoom canceled but drawing mode as well,
causing a return to the main Furnish screen and the loss of any lines
you had drawn. Fixed. Canceling in Zoom within Draw now cancels just the
zoom and returns you to drawing mode.
2/27/08 - Revision
If after setting up a background
picture, the picture was removed, the VR module would fail attempting to
load the now non-existent picture. Fixed. The program now gives an error
message and continues with a blank background.
2/17/08 - Revision
A result of our attending the ARA
convention in Las Vegas, this build fixes some minor problems and adds a
few new features to PartyCAD 10:
- When setting the scale of a background picture in Furnish, a Diagonal
option has been added in addition to the old Horizontal and Vertical
options. This allows you to specify a non-ordinal distance when setting
the scale of a background picture.
- In Furnish, when a group is selected, two new Align buttons appear at
the left of the screen. Clicking these will align the members of the
group either horizontally or vertically on the current group master
piece, that is, the piece drawn with a darker shade of red.
- In View, a new Option called Flatten Plan has been added. Checking
this will cause the floor plan associated with an arrangement to be
rendered as lines on the floor rather than in 3D. This is useful for
creating overall views of events in venues.
- Added a new Venue Base entry to the Party Wizard. This makes it nearly
as easy to create a party into ballroom as into a tent. See how
- Remade the Quick Start videos to demonstrate the "Venue Base" Party
Wizard entry and add emphasis to the project management sections. Watch
- The Tent Wizard menu has been re-formatted to show completely on Vista
machines which have the Aero option turned on.
- In Furnish when doing a fill to create curved rows of chairs, if you
switched between the Wedge and Curve options, the resulting chairs would
sometimes be rotated the wrong way. Fixed
- In the Project Manager, when clicking Backup Project or Restore
Project a menu appeared that allowed you to select Floppy A, Floppy B or
Other as the destination or source of the backup file. "Other" is really
the only reasonable choice since PartyCAD projects are now too big to
fit on a floppy disk, and so the choice is now made for you, thus saving
a mouse click and some confusion.
2/8/08 - Revision 10.1.44
- Texture files on inaccessible network
drives would cause the VR and Furnish module to crash. Fixed.
12/31/07 - Revision 10.1.42
- In Layout Page, attempting to paint an
arrangement containing more than 32,000 lines caused PartyCAD to fail.
12/12/07 - Revision
- In Furnish, improved the structure of
bodies of rotation models generated with the Draw command.
11/24/07 - Revision
- From the Main Menu, clicking Options and
checking Annotate All Printouts is supposed to cause all printouts
including PDFs to be marked with project, date and time information.
This was not being done for PDFs created in the Furnish module by
clicking File/ Save as PDF. Fixed
11/24/07 - Revision 10.1.39
- New online demo version of PartyCAD
11/9/07 - Revision
- When printing in Furnish, very
occasionally the help screen describing how to fix printer problems
would unexpectedly be displayed. Fixed
11/5/07 - Revision
- In Furnish, in the Fill
command, the number of items that will be added by the Fill is reported
in a "progress area" at the bottom of the panel at the right of the
screen. If the item you are filling with contains chairs, a box in this
area reports the number of chairs per unit, and below, a calculation of
the number of chairs that will be added if you complete the fill is
displayed. For instance, if you are filling with a 5RT8C piece (5' round
table with 8 chairs) and you have dragged the green fill button to make
5 rows with 4 tables in each row, then the progress area is supposed to
report: 20 x  = 160, meaning there are 20 pieces in the fill, each
piece adding 8 chairs to the arrangement, for a total of 160 chairs if
you click OK to complete the fill. The total chairs in the design,
including those in the current fill, is reported at the top left of the
screen, in the menu bar. These numbers can be very helpful if you are
trying to create a design with a specific number of seats, however,
there was a bug in PartyCAD's logic for the progress area that has now
been fixed. The bug: if you already had chairs in another section of
your design when you started a fill of a table with chairs, or just
plain chairs, the "chairs per item" box in the progress area was set to
the total count of chairs in the design rather than to the number of
chairs in the item. The result was ridiculous values for the reported
chair count within the Fill command. This has been fixed.
11/1/07 - Revision
- Non critical warnings thrown during
project restore operations would terminate the restore operation. Fixed.
The restore will now continue under such circumstances.
10/2/07 - Revision
- A corrupt favorites file would
cause PartyCAD to crash. Fixed.
9/22/07 - Revision
- Tweaks to protect online demo
9/16/07 - Revision 10.1.33
- Demo copies of PartyCAD can now be extended online.
9/7/07 - Revision 10.1.32
- When importing a DXF file with more than 1300 blocks, PartyCAD would
fail. Fixed. The limit was raised to 2500 blocks.
7/5/07 - Revision 10.1.31
- In Make Plan, when using the Check Geometry button, clicking Cancel
did not always cancel the operation. Fixed
- In Make Plan, when items were deleted from a plan, PartyCAD would
sometimes handle the cleanup incorrectly, resulting in doors that were
very large and the inability to generate plans with floors and ceilings.
6/18/07 - Revision 10.1.30
- If a plan containing a background picture was modified directly with
the Furnish module, loading a page already containing the plan in Layout
Page would sometimes result in a error. Fixed
6/15/07 - Revision 10.1.29
- If the cornerblock text on a page
was more than 8 lines long and the related project was added to the
Party Wizard, PartyCAD would error out when an attempt was made to
create a party based on the event. Fixed. The limit on corner block text
lines is now 20 lines, though it is really better practice to add such
excess text as a separate part on the page.
6/1/07 - Revision 10.1.28
- Under the Project Manager's
Edit/Split Project button, it can take a significant amount of time to
prepare a project for splitting, and this may cause a user to
erroneously think the program has hung. To address this issue, PartyCAD
has been modified to display an hourglass while this preparatory work is
5/30/07 - Revision
- Revision 10.1.18 fixed a
problem with clicking the text "Show Pictures" in PartyCAD's Main Menu.
Embarrassingly, the revision contained a bug which caused "Show
Pictures" to be run if you clicked on any text for the modules listed on
the Main Menu. Clicking the picture icons associated with the various
modules was the only way to access any but Show Pictures. This problem
has been fixed, and all module labels and icons now perform correctly.
- Bodies of rotation can be created using the Draw command within the
Furnish module. The first step in doing so is to draw a vertical or
horizontal arrow to indicate the axis of rotation. The program checks
that the line is horizontal or vertical, and formerly was overly fussy
that this be so. With
this revision, the program is a bit
more forgiving if you are just slightly off.
5/27/07 - Revision
- The practical limit for plan
sizes in PartyCAD is 1/3 of a mile by 1/3 of a mile. Larger plans caused
a overflow error in the VR module. This specific problem has been fixed,
but results for such large plans are still not optimal.
5/23/07 - Revision
- In Furnish, if you zoomed again
and again, eventually PartyCAD would fail with an overflow error. Fixed.
PartyCAD now refuses to zoom if the resulting view of the data cannot be
- In Furnish, Custom Pieces for which there were no thumbnails were not
displayed in the list of available furniture. Fixed. A label is now
shown for such pieces and this acts as the thumbnail.
- Certain DXF files could not be loaded due to large shift values in the
5/16/07 - Revision
- When drawing plugs in Paint,
the 2x and 3x buttons, used to zoom in, failed at times if the image
being painted was large. This was a result of the computer running out
of graphics memory. PartyCAD now guards against this situation and
removes the 2x or 3x buttons without failing if the problem occurs.
5/16/07 - Revision
- If a folder name contained a
period and you attempted to save a JPG, BMP, WMF or PDF file to that
folder via PartyCAD's "File/ Save as" commands in Make a Plan, Furnish,
View, VR or Layout Page, PartyCAD would not allow the operation, giving
a Bad File Name error. Fixed. Periods in folder names are now allowed in
5/12/07 - Revision
- Improved handling of corrupt pieces in the
5/9/07 - Revision 10.1.21
- Views with very large numbers
of paint patches could cause Paint in Layout Page to fail with an
overflow error. Fixed
5/8/07 - Revision 10.1.20
- When using background pictures, the
program advised that you limit picture names to 10 letters. In some
circumstances 10 letters is still too long, and so the limit has now
been lowered to 9 letters.
- On dual monitor systems with large monitors, PartyCAD would fail when
starting Make a Plan. Fixed
5/3/07 - Revision 10.1.19
- In some screen configurations,
the bottom row of buttons in the Furnish and Layout Page modules were
partially obscured. Fixed
- Replaced the 100x100Lot Party Wizard entry with a new one that
replaces the red box with a person positioned near the upper left corner
of the lot. This is a more flexible design. Click
here to update
your 100x100Lot to the new version.
4/26/07 - Revision
- In the Main Menu, clicking the
Picture Show icon took you to Picture Show, however clicking the text
"Show Pictures" took you to the old paint module. Fixed. Picture Show
can now be accessed by clicking either the text or the icon.
4/24/07 - Revision 10.1.17
- When saving a piece AS1 with a
fancy thumbnail, if during the thumbnail setup you closed the window by
clicking X instead of clicking the OK button, the piece was saved
without a thumbnail and because of this was not shown when the Load
Custom Piece button was clicked, though the piece was listed if you
clicked File/ Load Custom Piece. Fixed. Clicking X is now treated
exactly the same as though you had clicked OK.
4/23/07 - Revision
- In the List and Report module,
if you set up Parts Lists for complex pieces, say pipe and drape booths
for instance, the part counts generated by the module were correct, but
the extension of the price information relating to the parts was
mishandled, giving obviously incorrect results. Fixed
4/19/07 - Revision
- In Furnish, the program failed
if you tried to save an arrangement with over 400 piece groups. Fixed
4/18/07 - Revision
- Addressed a problem wherein the online update program failed
during cleanup after a successful update of the software.
4/17/07 - Revision
- Made further tweaks to accommodate dual monitor systems.
4/17/07 - Revision
- On dual monitor systems with large monitors, PartyCAD would
fail at startup with an overflow error. Fixed
- PartyCAD could not be updated online unless it had been run once
successfully prior to the update attempt. Fixed. PartyCAD can now be
updated immediately after it is installed.
4/16/07 - Revision
- If the Windows Start Bar was positioned at the left or top of
the desktop, pictures captured in the VR module and Piece Editor were
cropped incorrectly. Fixed
4/13/07 - Revision
- When saving a PDF file, checking or unchecking the Draw Page
Border checkbox had no effect on the PDF file generated by PartyCAD.
4/10/07 - Revision
- If an arrangement name contained a dash, Layout Page forgot how
to link the plan's art back to the arrangement and PartyCAD stopped with
an error when an attempt was made to paint the plan. Fixed.
4/9/07 - Revision
- Help was not working in Make Plan. Fixed
4/5/07 - Revision
- All help was changed from .hlp to .chm file format in
version 10.0.30 to work correctly on Vista machines. However, numerous
references to the old .hlp files within PartyCAD were not modified to
reflect this change, resulting in missing file errors when Help was
clicked. This has been fixed, and all references to help files now
access the new .chm versions of these files.
3/31/07 - Revision
- Moved installation of codec for PartyCAD Help Videos to setup program.
- Further improved checking if a previous version is running.
3/30/07 - Revision
- Removed the word XP from the Set Folder Locations menu since it
now works with Vista as well.
- Removed the option of choosing a .jpg when using Change Logo on the
second Party Wizard screen. Logos must be .bmps or PartyCAD behaves
3/30/07 - Revision
- It was not possible to set up folder locations, including mapped
drives, on Vista machines. Fixed. See
here for instructions on mapping drives under Vista.
3/28/07 - Revision
- In the Party Wizard, added code to protect against a
missing Project Name when Create Party is clicked.
3/26/07 - PartyCAD
works on VISTA machines
We have tested PartyCAD on a machine with the new Microsoft
Vista operating system and, with a few tweaks (see below), it worked
fine. On the particular machine we tried, there was a pause of nearly 40
seconds after clicking the Install button that is displayed when you
insert the PartyCAD CD. However, once the installer did start, the
process went smoothly and behaved much as under Windows XP.
When installing PartyCAD on a Vista machine, make sure you have
administrative privileges turned on during the install and also when
PartyCAD is run for the first time.
Vista related bugs fixed in revision 10.0.29:
-- On some Vista machines, art saved while in Virtual Reality and fancy
thumbnails saved by the Piece Editor were saved incorrectly as pure
black images. Fixed.
-- On Vista machines, the "wind" noise that plays when PartyCAD starts
did not play. Fixed.
-- On Vista machines, the "chimes" noise that plays when the Party
Wizard completes the creation of a new party did not play. Fixed
3/26/07 - Revision 10.0.29
-- Attempting to paint a plan with an included background picture
caused PartyCAD to fail. It is not currently possible to paint a plan
that has an associated background picture, and so the paint button in
Layout Page no longer is displayed if such a plan is selected as the
3/21/07 - Revision
-- In the Main Menu, clicking Options/ Annotate all
printouts causes information regarding file names and creation dates
to be added to all PartyCAD printouts. This same information is now
included with any PDF files created when the option is set.
-- If you started a file name with a space, the resulting file could not
be read by PartyCAD. Fixed. Any spaces preceding or following a filename
are now automatically removed but the program.
-- In the Tent Wizard, it was not possible to make a mid or end shorter
than 25". The minimum length has now been reduced to 11".
-- In Furnish, the Save As 1 button's tooltip has been reworded
to better reflect the current capabilities of this command.
3/14/07 - Revision
-- In Layout Page, if you loaded a page, made changes and
then saved the page under a different name, or if you abandoned such
changes by exiting without saving, the line art on the original saved
page was incorrectly updated to reflect changes made in the second
version of the design. The arrangement and virtual views relating to the
original page remained unchanged. Only the line art changed. This
mismatch of art was easily fixed by right-clicking the plan on the
original page, making a small change in Furnish and then clicking
Return, however the bug has been addressed and PartyCAD now hangs onto
the original line art for page originals.
3/12/07 - Revision
-- If a plan related to an arrangement goes missing, PartyCAD
substitutes a SMG file for the plan and attempts to continue working
with the arrangement. Various problems involving SMG files when
recording movies and when using PartyCAD Picture Show were addressed
with this build.
In general, it is best to get rid of SMG files if you are warned that
one is in use. To do this:
1. Run Furnish and make a New plan of appropriate size.
2. Click File/ Load Arrangement to load your arrangement onto the new
3. Resave the arrangement under the same name.
This causes the plan you have just created to be used instead of the SMG
3/10/07 - Revision
-- Fixed a bug whereby problems with setting up a background
picture caused a fatal error to occur anytime the "Make a Plan to Match
a Background Picture" button was clicked while in the project where the
3/9/07 - Revision
-- If a tent that included tent lines was passed to View,
where tent lines were hidden and a view saved, the Paint command in
Layout Page did not paint the view correctly. Fixed
3/8/07 - Revision
-- Arrangement names containing spaces caused problems when a
line drawing was right-clicked in Layout Page. Fixed.
-- Mysterious lines sometimes appeared when coloring frame tents in the
View module. Fixed.
-- The ends of frame tents were incorrectly colored in the View module.
Fixed, but this error was due to the fact that the tent ends were
incorrectly generated by the Tent Wizard. To see the effect of this fix,
you will have to load the misbehaving arrangement in Furnish, select the
frame tent in question, click the Tent Wizard button and then, when the
tent appears, click the "Save as Changed Tent" button to return a clean
version of the tent to Furnish. You would then save the arrangement (or
click Return) and all will be well with the coloring of the tent.
3/5/07 - Revision
-- Changed the way straight line arcs are drawn to give a
segmented straight line rather than just a simple line.
-- Modified the Tent Wizard to support Big Top Tents and made small
changes to continue adding mesh creation as an advanced feature to the
2/21/07 - Revision
-- Completed changes to the Tent Wizard to support Anchor
2/21/07 - Revision
-- When creating dimension lines with Draw in Furnish, you
set three points that control the generated dimension line. The first
two points clicked indicate the ends of the measured distance and the
third controls how far the generated dimension line is to be drawn away
from these first two points. If the first two points are not lined up
horizontally or vertically, this third point also controls how the
distance between them is measured. That is, if you move the third point
directly below or above, to the right or to the left of either of the
first two points, the dimension lines are drawn along the x or y axis
and the distance reported should be the distance between the two points
along the indicated axis. However, this was not the case until this
build of PartyCAD. Instead, the calculated distance between the two
points was always reported, just as you get if the third point is not in
line with either of the first two.
Note: dimension lines in Layout Page are constructed in
this same way, but the logic there was correct and so there was no need
to change it.
-- Setting the angle between tent lines for manufactured tents had no
effect on the 3D models produced by the Tent Wizard. Fixed.
-- Began adding logic to allow drawings in Furnish to be converted to 3D
meshes. This code will be useful in creating circular tops for tents in
the future but is not currently available to users.
2/13/07 - Revision
-- Further improved the interface between the Paint and View
modules and tweaked painting in View to handle more complex designs.
2/13/07 - Revision
-- When coloring in View, there was no way to stop the
process and at times it was difficult to tell if the coloring operation
had stalled. Improved-- progress is now reported in the menu bar, and
you can click on any control on the screen to terminate coloring
2/12/07 - Revision
-- In Furnish, the break group button appeared
inappropriately after a Fill. Fixed
-- In Furnish when drawing a Dimension, if you forced the dimension
distance by typing in a value and then began a new dimension, the new
distance defaulted to the previously forced value instead of being
automatically calculated. Fixed. Automatic calculation is now the
default option on all new dimension lines.
-- In Layout Page, if you painted a view or plan and then changed the
arrangement, the old paint was sometimes applied to the new picture
giving unsatisfactory results. Fixed.
-- In Paint, the Edit button was inappropriately displayed while
previews were being created. Fixed.
1/29/07 - Revision
-- When Filling in Furnish, if the Curve or Wedge option was
selected, dragging on the yellow dot to adjust the curvature of the fill
produced erratic results. Fixed.
-- If another instance of PartyCAD is running when the program starts,
PartyCAD informs you of this and requests that you click OK to stop the
current instance. The idea is that you will then resume using the
already running instance. In some cases, however, it seems the program
thinks there is another instance running when this is not the case. When
this happened, you were forced to reboot your system before you could
run PartyCAD again. The cause of this problem is currently unknown, but
a Cancel button has been added to the warning dialog box. Clicking this
button cancels the warning and allows you to continue with the current
instance of the program.
1/28/07 - Revision
-- If you loaded a drawn scale in Layout Page, the Duplicate
button would appear and the program would fail if you clicked it. Fixed.
The button is no longer visible when a scale is selected. If you want to
place multiple scales on a page, add them by repeatedly using the Load
-- You can save orthogonal drawings in View by clicking Options/
Elevations. Such drawings are not perfectly accurate and should be
checked when included as part of a page in Layout Page, however:
1. The accuracy of such drawings has been improved with this build.
2. The Dimension button in Layout page now appears when such drawings
3. Dimensions for such drawings now default to real world dimensions
rather than page dimensions.
1/22/07 - Revision
-- New Feature. The art behind the Main Menu (stunning autumn leaves in
Version 10) can now be replaced with anything you like if you have
access to a paint program. Just create a 1152x865 image and save it as:
C:\PartyCAD\MyBackground.bmp Images of any size other
than the one specified above will be stretched to fill the screen.
-- Tweaked the online update program to make it more reliable.
1/19/07 - Revision 10.0.13
-- Fixed an additional filename passing problem when going from Layout
Page to Paint.
1/19/07 - Revision 10.0.12
-- When Painting in Layout Page, names longer than 8 characters were
incorrectly passed to the Paint module causing it to fail. Fixed
1/17/07 - Revision 10.0.11
-- In Make Plan, if a new plan was started in a north or south
direction, the yellow dot that allows you to easily build a wall level
with the starting point was not displayed. Fixed
-- In Furnish, the movement amounts displayed at the upper right of the
screen are rounded to whole inches or centimeters. In some cases, a more
precise measurement is useful, and so a new feature has been added. Now
if you move your mouse over the displayed movement amount, a more
precise measurement will be displayed as a tooltip.
1/16/07 - Revision 10.0.10
-- Added an Arrowhead Length box to Draw/ Dimension in the Furnish
1/16/07 - Revision 10.0.9
-- The Furniture Gallery could not handle more than 200 pieces of Global
furniture. Fixed. The limit has been raised to 1000 pieces.
1/16/07 - Revision 10.0.8
-- In View, clicking File/ Exit did
not cause an exit from the View module. Fixed
-- In View, if the view had been colored, clicking File/ Save as
Metafile caused a fatal error. Fixed
-- In the Project Manager, attempting to backup the Global Data folder
caused a variety of problems. Fixed.
1/15/07 - Revision 10.0.7
-- In the Paint module, if
Preview was pressed, and while the preview was being constructed,
Save&Exit was clicked, an incomplete or faulty coloring of a plan or
view could result. This problem has been addressed by hiding the
Save&Exit button while the program is constructing the preview. When the
preview is complete, the button reappears.
1/15/07 - Revision 10.0.6
-- If a very large tent had more
than 1000 icon lines, the Tent Wizard would fail. Fixed. The limit has
been increased to 2000 lines.
1/6/07 - Revision 10.0.5
-- Formerly, if you used edit in
Layout Page to remove the borders from a drawing created by the View
module, the dimensions of the drawing were adjusted to reflect this
change. Because this sort of adjustment confuses the new Paint module,
the size of such edited pictures is no longer adjusted and the program
treats the borders as though they were there, but invisible.
-- Because the change above may make it difficult to work with certain
kinds of art, the View module has been modified to create borderless
drawings when a "camera style" view is saved and none of the lines in
the drawing touch the picture border. The effect of this is to save you
some editing in Layout Page and at the same time allow such pictures to
be painted correctly by the Paint module.
-- Pages created in earlier version of PartyCAD may need to be
regenerated if you wish to use the Paint to color drawings created by
the View module.
To regenerate a page:

-- Fixed problems with accessing
Help and the Help Videos from within the Furniture Album and Furniture
1/2/07 - Revision 10.0.2
-- When setting up a background
picture, after setting the scale, the scaled dimensions of the picture
were reported as 0 x 0 even though the scale had been set correctly.
When used in Furnish, the picture was scaled correctly, so this was just
an error in reporting the scale during the setup process. The error has
now been fixed.
