Okay I've just loaded 2022 and so far, am seriously underwhelmed ... Not with what Softplan can do, I havent got that far yet, but more by what it didn't do ...
For the last few updates, I've complained about the same thing ... Am I the only person who customizes his Softplan Configuration? I backed up my 2020 System Configuration and restored it to 2022. I don't know about anyone else, but if I restore a System configuration, I don't really expect to then have to spend hours configuring it like it was on the earlier version.
1 - STYLE ... I'm a great fan of Black/Dark interfaces, and my Softplan Style has been Black as long as I can remember. Now NO STYLE setting option. Am I stuck with the light blue options? It's possible this setting has been relocated but I havent got that far yet
2.- COLOURS ... My everytime rant ... I use the standard white interface, and as such Softplans choice of colour options is terrible ... Who draws in yellow on white? So EVERY ONE of the 32 available colours is a specific colour that I've chosen to maximize the contrast with a white background. Some (like Red, Blue, Black etc.) are obviously the same, but it's an extensive chore to edit all 32 colours to a specific RGB colour. Why does it not save as part of the configuration.
3. FONTS ... I'm not a lover of the Standard Softplan fonts, so my standard fonts are COOPER BLACK, CORBEL and CALIBRI and they are Windows fonts that are resident on my system - The System Restore didn't remember/restore ANY of them. It did however substitute nearly everything with SPHAND, which is arguably the ugliest font I've ever seen!
So now I have to spend time I don't have, reconfiguring a system that been setup perfectly for me for the last 2 years ... Why doesn't BACKING UP SYSTEM CONFIGURATION do that. What did it backup?
That's all I've noticed in the first 2 minutes, but I'm sure I'll find out something else to moan about. Then I'll find out the good stuff that it can do that i've been looking forward to.
OH yes, sorry I forgot ... Why does every new version get simpler/blander ICONS ... That I now don't recognise so it slows me down further. I don't use the RIBBON BAR as I don't like to take any more space away from the drawing area than I have to ... I can also find ICONS quicker, if every one that I want is ALWAYS in the same place on a SINGLE MENU BAR.
Does making everything look different every version actually improve ANYTHING? Useablilty, speed?
