The Library Creator 17.4-2019 HotFix 007 update is now available. This time, the entire Templates dialog has got a facelift that will make it easier to locate and select a template. A bunch of changes has been made to the Properties window.
Another noticeable change is that we added a few buttons to the Configuration dialog that allow you to quickly add new rules.
Keep reading to find out more about the changes.
Easily add rules and constraints. Using the Configuration (Editing) dialog is now easier as new buttons are added to the dialog. You can use the Add Item button to add new rules. In the Procedure Triggers section, you can add new constraints using the Constraint button and create nested constraint or logical groups by just clicking the OR and AND buttons.
Improved Properties window. The improved Properties window now allows you to change the shape properties (shape type, dimensions, and the X and Y positions) and text styles (width, height, spacing, and stroke width).
Moreover, the text styles created using the Configuration dialog can also be applied from the Use Style drop-down list.
Quickly locate a template. Locating a template in the Templates dialog is now easier. The tree structure in the Templates dialog now displays templates organized into categories.
If you are still unable to select the right template, you can also preview a template before loading it onto the canvas as the Templates dialog displays a thumbnail of every template. A brief description of a template can also be viewed by just hovering the mouse cursor over a template.
Drafting enhancements. Library Creator now allows you to subtract path-based shapes from each other. In addition to this, you can quickly change the shape of a polygon by adding vertexes to the polygon.
