Upgraded to SoftPlan 2022.

Old problems that have not changed (in my opinion)



  • Layers now can be renamed from Draw Mode; however you cannot add a new layer or change anything else
  • File -> Open New Drawing - No Drawing files appear until you change file type. Why isn't the "spd" the default file type? I'm opening a "Drawing"  
  • File -> Open New Drawing - "Do you want to close the current project?" NEVER EVER!!! Rumer is it's like this for very old versions. We are all dealing with this for non paying customers???

I still haven't upgraded even though I've tried to be first in line to upgrade for nearly 15 years.  Too much work going on for me to deal with all the changes.  I may consider it after summer is over and I hear less complaints here.

The File- Open items issues and the reasons for them were thoroughly discussed in the following thread...  http://softplan.com/...?hl=+file +open
