    Hello 2020 Design users, V11.12 is now available!


    1. We’ve added a brand new multiple dimensions tool to increase efficiency while dimensioning a floor plan or elevation.
    2. With the latest magicplan enhancements, we’ve improved walls and windows position’s accuracy. We now support the mapping of a variety of items inserted in magicplan such as doors, windows, appliances, plumbing, electrical and structural items.
    3. Angled Beams were added to the Room catalog. These can be easily placed using the drag and drop function. Their height, width and the textures can also be modified.
    4. Three types of light sources were added to light up some of the darker areas of your rooms and renderings; one that shines up, one that shines down and an omni-directional light.

    Thank you,

    Thank you.  Could you please work on an “Editable Subway”  or an editable offset grouted tile option.  Sometimes importing a subway image does not articulate well and doing it manually is just time consuming.  Thank you in advance from all us grateful designers who love using 2020!  Oh and lastly and thank you for the new angled beams!  That is huge! Can’t wait to start putting them into plan.

    Hello “Remodelme”,   : )

    Thank you for the feedback and am glad you appreciate the angled beams.  We took note of your tiling request.

    Thank you!

    Hi Remodelme,

    There is a tiny tile catalog available to do this – please try the Facebook (independent) group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/208007849836990/

    It has offset metro tiles that are resizable. It allows for alternate rows of different sizes. See attached picture.

    I am having lots of issues with this update, cabinet centring isn’t working; tabs in my ribbon don’t work. Notes won’t number. Doors won’t drop in. Bit of a nightmare really. What has happened?

    I’ve not seen any such issues so IMHO, you have a registry issue so first thing is to make a note of all of your Preferences and then try a registry reset from All Programs/Design/Tools/Maintenance Tools. Once you have done the registry reset (might as well clear temp files at the same time – it’s in the same section) then re-enter all your preferences and try again.

    The other thing it could be is if you installed over the top of an earlier version as this often causes issues. If the registry reset doesn’t work, try a basic uninstall/re-install and try again (this leaves catalogues and preferences in place). If this doesn’t work, try a complete uninstall/re-install, re-install any needed catalogues and try again. If this doesn’t work then you really have problems!!

    The registry reset is quick, easy and seems to cure 90% of such issues but it may be worth waiting for an ‘official’ response.

    Thanks Mike, I found by deleting things from the quick access toolbar I was able to get things working again. Very strange!

    Although I am sure everyone appreciates the new features, can you PLEASE fix some of the bugs that I and others have been complaining about for a long time. An example is the broken Draw/Arc option where you can no longer type in radius etc without it picking some weird amount. It has been doing this since V10 and I have pointed this bug out on pretty much every version since.

    Also, is anybody else have trouble with ceiling scribes doing odd things in V11.12?

    I just downloaded this version and am having problems with the decorative items. In the previous version they were showing up in the plan view as an actual item (towel bar, tissue holder, etc.). Now in plan view they are showing as rectangular blocks. Also, when I go to print, the decorative items disappear from plan view. Mostly sinks, lighting and bath hardware. I was hoping this update would fix all those previous issues. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

    Hi Mackenzie,

    Re the blocks, have you got 3D display set on in Preferences? Go to File, Preferences and tick the 2 3D options (see attached).

    The second issue sounds like you have those items switched off in the display scheme. Which tab are you trying to print? if the ‘Print’ tab then right click in a blank area, choose Display Settings, Items and expand the General option and check that Decorative Items is ticked – if it isn’t tick it then save the scheme back under the same name. The same technique applies to the other tabs and display schemes. The Display Schemes are very powerful and it is worth learning about them.
