Improvements to context object resolving for HOPA calls and macros

Done under JIRA issue HDC-2704 - Proper handling of context objects in HOPA and Print calls (Viewports, Macros)



Vector drawings added automatically when drawing is created

Done under JIRA issue [HDC-2639] - Vector drawings should be available automatically for all documents

Vector drawing (overlay) will now be automatically added when new drawing is created. 

This change will not affect existing drawing without overlay.

Delete objects linked to spot

Done under JIRA issue HDC-2526 - Option to delete linked objects when deleting Edit vectors

When deleting a spot, all linked objects to it can be reviewed and deleted.

In Edit mode, select new mode "Auto delete spot related objects"  and then select a spot and delete it.
Delete related objects dialog will appear:

Using button  you can remove object from list of objects to be deleted (spot is already deleted).

Only after clicking on Delete button, objects left on the list will be deleted.

Links management (Drag & Drop)

Done under JIRA issues:

  1. HDC-2640 - Link management improvements for GridView (Drag&Drop), Move document(s)
  2. HDC-2680 - Paste links to spot should allow all links to be pasted at once

A number of improvements for handling links management were introduced. Now objects can be linked more easily in a number of situations.

Hints about Tree View operations:

  • Simple drag and drop to other objects in the Tree View will always add a new link. You can drop object on to Tree elements as well as Spots on the main document Viewer.
  • By holding down a Ctrl key, you will unlink the objects from currently selected parent (not from other parents)
  • The number at the end of the indicator shows a number of dragged objects. 
  • If you select multiple objects, but drag one that is outside of the selection, only that one will be affected. To drag all objects from selection, start dragging one of the selected objects.
  • Target indicator will turn red if drop is not possible:
    • you do not have sufficient privileges
    • you are trying to move multiple objects that have different parent objects. Only child objects of one parent can be moved this way. 
    • you are trying to create a "self link" - you cannot drop objects to one of the selected objects

HInts about Grid View operations

  • You can Drag and drop objects from Grid to Tree elements, also with the move option triggered by Ctrl key
  • Drag and drop objects to Viewer to create spot links (for example, to create document - spot links, or link Rooms)
  • To drag multiple objects from the grid, use check-boxes.
  • The cut/move operations will affect all selected parent objects in the tree. For example, If you select 5 Floors and move selected documents to 6th one, system will try to unlink documents from all 5 floors.
  • If you have selected a number of objects in the Tree View and use the paste button on the grid, the pasted objects will be linked to all objects selected in the Tree View. 

Use-case: Add additional link or move document between two floors

Select a Floor object with a linked document. Drag a single document or select multiple documents using check-boxes. 

Holding down a mouse button, drag objects over another Floor object and drop (release mouse button) to create additional link.

To move document to new Floor, hold down Ctrl key before starting drag operation. The documents will be unlinked only from selected object in tree view, and new links will be added to the drop target.

Excel document import to support multiple document link locations (parents)

Done under JIRA issue [HDC-2626] - Excel document import to support multiple document link locations (parents)



Excel document import can now add document (represented as a row in spreadsheet) to multiple objects in Tree hierarchy (of same level).


Control over layers selectability in vector drawing

Done under JIRA issue [HDC-2498] - I can control and save layers order / selectability in vector drawing

Layers have been given two new states now: Active and Disabled.


When layers is set as Disabled, interaction with elements on this layer is turned off.  Elements on this layer are still visible, but you cannot add new spot to this layer and existing ones are not editable (they cannot be selected).

This prevents elements on this layer from getting in the way of selecting other elements that might be located behind. 


Controlling layer visibility/activity state is done from Layers dropdown in Viewer:

Column A represents current "Active" state of layer. 
 - indicates layer is in Active state.
 - indicates layer is in Disabled state.

By clicking on given state marker, you will change is state to opposite one. Below layer list there is a toggle button for changing state of all layers.

This is a temporary change - when the document is reloaded, a defaults will be applied.


Local (private) layers and redline layers default state can be controlled from Composite Drawing Manger:

This default state will be saved and applied every time a document is loaded.


For Global layers, default state can be defined in Administrator panel:

Default state will be set each time drawing is reloaded. Also exiting print preview sets default state for layers.

TAF file generation and download

Done under JIRA issue [HDC-2375] - TAF generation when downloading single Raster from CDM

From Composite Drawing Manager (CDM) there is now possibility to generate and download .TAF file with current raster parameters (attributes like scale, resolution, insertion point).

To access the download panel, in CDM click on raster drawing on left panel and then on right panel select Content Info tab. Under Download button you can decide what to download:

Option Raster with TAF will create and download .zip file containing both raster file and parameters file.

Reading DPI parameter from GIF files

Done under JIRA issue [HDC-2652] - Wrong raster attributes read from GIF

Handling of .gif files is changed in regards of reading DPI raster parameter. Currently the system will not use DPI value read from GIF file. It is recommended to use a TAF (attribute file) for GIF filed.

Current logic for reading DPI value in GIF files:

  • take parameter value from TAF file if possible,
  • if no DPI in TAF then set default value of 300 dpi

Other parameters that can be read (orientation, length, height) are taken from image file with priority. 

Default scale value changed

Default scale value for imported raster image is changed. 
For raster images that do not have TAF file, default scale value is now set to 1:1.
