DS|Color v2.72 Update
Included in this release:
  1. Techo-Bloc catalog of swatches added as a style - we have added the entire catolog of Techo-Bloc (pavers, slabs, and walls) to DS|Color! 
  2. Zooming ImprovementsZooming performance when shadows with enabled has been improved by temporarily showing the preview bitmap. Toggling shadows on or off will update the preview bitmap so there is less of a difference between the presentation and the preview seen when panning and zooming.
  3. Special characters - DS|Color will now render a single percent symbol when Design uses two percent symbols. The following other special characters now display correctly in DS|Color: Angle (%a), Diameter (%d), Degree (%e), Fraction (%f) and Plus/Minus (%p). NOTE: Fractions created using 1/2 button in Design are still not supported.
  4. Eye dropper tool - Using the eye dropper tool to choose an existing swatch, filling an area, and then adjusting the sliders will no longer affect the original swatch that was copied.
  5. Shadows - Display of shadows can now be toggled using Ctrl+D.
  6. Update to DynaSCAPE PDF Writer - the following are included as part of this update:
    • PDF export has been updated to include the latest third party fixes.  
    • Added keyboard shortcuts to the PDF Export dialog: Press Enter to continue the export process or Escape to Cancel.
    • Exporting to PDF will now default the paper size and orientation based on the size of the original DS|Design drawing.
    • Page size on the Drawing Information page should detect the page size correctly more often.
Other Fixes & Enhancements
  • Significant performance improvement when updating a presentation from a complex drawing.
  • Better handling of international number formats.
  • Improvements made to the DS|Color outline tool.
  • DS|Color will no longer crash when creating/updating a presentation from a drawing that contains an angle dimension.
  • Setting leader text locate in Design to centered, above, or below the baseline will now be reflected in DS|Color.
