    The joys of upgrading

    2017 has brought some very welcome enhancements to the table - however I've been noting a few niggles, and thought I'd share them here to see if others have also noted these - and (more hopefully) found 'fixes'.

    1. We appear to have a whole host of random dimension styles - most all named the same (!?) unused, and un-purgeable.

    2. We are noting (some) children families are not displaying as they once did (in 2015). Be that in the file they're placed, or through links (using raw/vanilla VG - this isn't one of the "33 things"). As per the attached screenshots, the elements are there - but "not". In the example, the "operation lines" are model, but it's not just lines, the (grand)children families of my hardware aren't showing either. Has the behaviour of symbolic/model lines (in families), or handling of nested families, been overhauled between releases? Frustratingly, it's inconsistently (un)reproducible - I've just started a new model (that uses the same upgraded-from-2015 content) and that's happy to show them. :banghead:

    3. There appear to be a whole new host of MEP Fabrication categories I now need to go catch in all of our VTs - which is always fun (why can't the default behaviour be to not add!?) - is there a list of (all of) these little changes somewhere so I can hunt them all down in one go rather than trip up on them as and when?

      utterly random line pattern styles creating themselves - and dirtying my name. :banghead:

        This just keeps getting more fun.

        Detail Item Schedule, no filter/sort tricks - and I've 9No. rows without any information.

        Deleting the rows raises the "this will delete" warning - not that helps explain what I'm about to delete.

        :crazy:

            Frustratingly no, the count counts - and the only field with anything in it.

              Wait, have they broken drag 'n drop (from Browser, of Details items) whilst in group edit mode as well?

                  Seriously? What a joke.

                  I'm thinking I'm going to bundle all these into one support ticket.

                    But for now I'm going to keep throwing them all into here, so to revisit last week's find:

                    No checkboxes at the family level of the Purge dialog:
