Hotfix - please put a date on them

I was just having a look at the Hotfix page and noticed these for releases 2010, 2011, 2012.  All of these could mean that our old drawings are wrong.  It would be good if there was a date on them so we know where to start checking.  More detailed descriptions would be nice so we know what to look for as well.


Hotfix - Incorrect value when dimensioning edges projected as circular arcs in drawing

Hotfix - Center of Gravity calculated incorrectly

Hotfix - Incomplete drawing update

Hotfix - IDW view does not reflect correct Design view

Hotfix - Multiple issues (see Summary & readme file)

This Hotfix addresses multiple issues:

  • IDW file Feature dimension does not update 
  • Design Views not honored


These have all been added after the last SP and all affect drawing accuracy.  The thought of going back and checking all of our products developed in 2010 doesnt excite me.

You'll find that if you follow the link to the down load there  is a READ ME HTLM that is on-line with all SP's and Hot-fixes there is a release date in the first few lines of that file.

However as a general rule the near the top of the list they are the new they are.

I agree with stevec781, "More detailed descriptions would be nice so we know what to look for as well."


Some of these hotfixes could be explained better by including a screenshot of the error.
