CP_FINDHND: -> CADPower Inquiry -> Search entities via handles
CP_LINEEQ (CADPower Draw Geometry Equation of a Line)
CP_LINE2XLINE (CADPower -> Conversion-> Lines/Polyline/Arc/Splines-> Line 2 XLINE)
CP_CONS_TXT (CADPower -> Text -> Editing -> Consolidate Text into Mtext): The CP_CONS_TXT command now gives you an option to delete the original text objects after consolidatng the same into a MTEXT object.
CP_CONS_TXT (CADPower -> Text -> Editing -> Consolidate text into MText/Text): The CP_CONS_TXT command has been updated. It now accepts text also, in addition to MTEXT. You can now combine many text objects into one single MTEXT object or into one concatenated text object.
CP_MATCH (CADPower Miscellaneous CAD Procedures Match object properties): The CP_MATCH command has been completely re-designed. It now accepts text also, in addition to MTEXT. You can now combine many text objects into one single MTEXT object or into one concatenated text object.
CP_GENSET: CADPower->Settings -> Force reload of CUI at startup
Minor enhancement: Many CADPower commands offer dialog boxes within them that allows selection from a list of available choices. When the choices are many, selecting exactly what you need can be cumbersone. A new 'Filter' option has been added to allow wild-card based filtering of what you see in the dialog box. The 'Filter' option makes data selection and management of data easier. This dialog is used by several commands to select layers, blocks, CAD styles, object types and user-created data from the DWG.
(CADPower-> Text-> Creation-> Draw Quick Text (running numbers): The Text Counter command has been significantly enhanced. You can now create auto-incrementing text based on real numbers also. If you need to create a text series like 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and so on, it is now possible using the new feature in the CP_TC command.
CP_XYZSCL (CADPower -> Miscellaneous -> CAD Procedures -> Scale objects (unequally) in X,Y and Z directions) command has been improved. You now have the 'R-Relative' option to specify scale factors in X and Y direction. The Relative option works like in the SCALE command and allows you to specify (or mouse pick) an old length and a new length, thereby determining the scale to be applied.
The FR, ON, OF, LO and TH short-cut commands that are used to control layer settings now allow you to select multiple objects in the selection. Earlier, it was only possible to select one object and the layer of that object would be turned on/off, frozen or thawed. Now, it is possible to respond with a . character in response to the layer names, and CADPower will present the "Select objects" prompt. This will enable you to select multiple objects and all the layers of these objects will be subjected to the command in operation.
Important Enhancement: All CADPower dialog boxes that ask for generic multiple selection (like layers, block etc) now has a new item called 'Filter' which allows wildcard filtering. This makes it much easier to select from large lists.
CP_DYNATTPLACE (CADPower -> Block Tools -> Place blocks - position attributes interactively): This command was broken and has been fixed.
(CADPower -> Text -> Display -> Apply arithmetic/statistical operations on text objects):
This command was broken and has been fixed.
CP_TXT2ATTDEF (CADPower -> Text -> Conversion -> Convert text strings to attribute definitions): This command was broken and has been fixed.
CP_CHCASE (CADPower -> Text -> Conversion -> Change Case): This command not converting Underlined text into Title case properly this has been fixed.
CP_CONNECTBLOCKS (CADPower -> Blocks -> Block-related -> Connect blocks based on attribute value): If the attribute tag name was incorrectly specified, the command would crash. This has been fixed now. Additionally, you can specify multiple attribute tag names separated by commas. This means that you can now connect multiple attribute names across blocks using this command.S
CP_READEXIF: CADPower Miscellaneous -> File Management -> View / Extract EXIF data: This command was crashing during execution and has been fixed
CP_CHOP : (CADPower -> Miscellaneous -> CAD Procedures -> Object Chopper): The CP_CHOP was not working correctly on closed periodic curves (like CIRCLE and ELLIPSE). This has now been fixed. You can chop a circle and ellipse accurately with this fix in place.
(CADPower -> Text -> Editing -> Slide (move) text relative to its rotation angle) was crashing upon startup. This has been fixed now.
CP_CONS_TXT (CADPower -> Text -> Editing -> Consolidate text into MText/Text): command was crashing upon start. This has now been fixed.
The automatic loading of toolbars during startup of CADPower and GeoTools has been disabled. The feedback we got was that this was annoying and must be removed.
CP_SL (CADPower -> Selection -> Select current Layer): This command was crashing. It has now been fixed.
CP_DIMPREC (BricsCAD+ -> Change Dimension Precision): This command was not working. It has now been fixed. (BricsCAD only)
