General Service Pack Updates

The following defects have been fixed:

3D Modeling
  • Applying a Curve Surface Intersection between a plane and a line gives an incorrect result in some cases.
  • A nested block moves in some cases after it is fully exploded.
Cursor Badge
  • The Zoom cursor badge does not turn off for the Zoom Window command even when the CURSORBADGE system variable is set to 1.
  • Associative dimension values change when you change their dimension style in some cases.
  • Part of the complex DGN linetype in a curve is missing when High Quality Geometry is turned on.
  • The wrong linetype displays when opening a drawing with complex DGN linetypes that are assigned to pline arcs.
  • Concentric arcs with a small opening angle may not be displayed as concentric at some zoom levels.
  • Ellipses and elliptical arcs on a layer with VP Freeze turned on display outside the layout viewport.
  • Some object colors change when using ZOOM together with 3D Visual Styles with faces displayed.
  • The associativity of gradient fills turns off when you create them by clicking inside boundaries.
  • Cannot set the hatch origin when using the ribbon when the COMMANDPREVIEW system variable is turned on.
  • The hatch pattern definition is limited to 80 characters.
  • The intersection osnap doesn't work for hatch patterns.
  • The hatch pattern doesn't change in some cases when choosing a different hatch pattern from the ribbon during hatch creation.
  • There is double space between each layer when the Layer Properties Manager is first opened.
Object Snap
  • The intersection osnap does not work inside hatch patterns.
Plot and Publish
  • Wipeout and masked text prints black when using the DWG to PDF PC3 file under Printer/Plotter.
  • A hatch set to the color white is printed as black in a PDF in some cases.
  • Hyperlinks attached to certain blocks causes the plotted PDF files to inflate in size.
  • The text formatted for reading right-to-left is printed upside down.
  • A high resolution image in a drawing might have an unexpected result when exported as a DWF file in some cases.
  • A mismatched plot page size results in an error report and halts the print job in some cases.
  • The default PDF file name discards all characters that follow a period.
  • In some Truetype fonts, characters with diacritical marks that are underlined in a text object do not plot.
  • When plotting PDF files, SHX text in PDF comments can be turned off by setting EPDFSHX=0 (the default is 1). In addition, some PDF viewers display text that uses SHX fonts as comments and this system variable addresses this issue as well. In a future release, we plan to rename this system variable to begin with the letters PDF.
  • Performance slows down for the OPEN and REGEN commands in drawings that contain many dynamic block with fields.
  • Performance slows down with the PUBLISH command in some cases.
  • Performance is affected when opening drawings containing references to unresolved data extraction (DXE) files.
Quick Properties Palette
  • The Quick Properties palette is not displayed anymore after closing the Block Editor when the Ribbon is closed.
  • The Quick Properties palette displays unexpectedly when editing a Hatch object.
  • Includes a security patch to address a vulnerability where a specially crafted raster image in a drawing can trigger unauthorized code execution.
User Interface
  • With right-click set to operate as an Enter at the Command prompt, a menu appears instead.
  • The 3DCLIP and DVIEW options, CLip and Camera, doesn't clip circles, arcs, ellipses and elliptical arcs when High Quality Geometry is turned on.
  • Lines are not clipped by the edges of layout viewports if the drawing contains a clipped PDF, DWF, or DWFx underlay.
  • The ALIGN command doesn't work correctly for an object that is slightly rotated.
  • Signed VLX files containing DCL dialogs boxes fail to display.
  • Using eTransmit includes xrefs despite the Bind External References option being checked.
  • The Start tab, Design Feed palette, and Help window do not display correctly with higher DPI settings.
  • Customized Table Data in Table Style Settings fail to display.
  • The tooltip from the Start tab remains displayed when Design Feed palette is open.
