Components Center is a cloud-based digital component library and catalog management service. It allows users to efficiently manage their digital component libraries while providing their designers with approved, proprietary components as well as manufacturer's content via subscriptions.
Components Center users can create their own organization catalogs and populate them with content provided by Bentley or upload custom content to share among all their users.
Standard Bentley Substation content placement tools now show content from Components Center. The first time a component is inserted it will be downloaded to a local cache folder making it faster to insert the next time you use that component.
The following enhancements have been made in this release:
For all other placement tools only published content can be seen and placed.
The Print Manager provides convenient filtering options that allow you to easily select and print the design files that were affected by a particular work order's revisions. It allows you to print design files displaying content based on a theme that you created and applied using the Thematic Manager.
The Insert Cable/Bus Tool now allows you to select a phase level to assign the cable to which makes it convenient to distinguish the cables belonging to each phase for clash detection purposes. This feature now works in concert with the Properties Control "Phase" property. The phase property value you set in the Properties Control will set the default value of the level when drawing the cable, but can be overridden in the Cable/Bus Tool Settings level pull-down.
After selecting multiple symbols you can right click and select Text Settings to apply text settings to all selected symbols. The dialog now has a pull-down list that allows you to choose between Device ID, Connection Point Text, and Symbol Text to apply different settings as desired for each of these categories.
Text alignment can now be applied to multi-line symbol text as a whole so that an attribute can be inserted in the symbol definition and the designer can trust that the text will grow in the desired direction and not interfere with the rest of the symbol.
Cable Diagram lines now extend to the end of each text string rather than being generated to the same length to the longest text string resulting in a gap between the line and the text on some terminals.
You can now add a wire number attribute for each terminal in your wiring diagram terminal strip symbol to control where the wire number for that terminal is displayed. It's useful if you wish to display the wire number in the center of the terminal and then print the from-to connections on either side of it.
The Parts Database Manager now provides picklists for the Manufacturer and Category fields that are populated with the values currently used in the parts database.
Now editing a terminal ID in a schematic to another strip ID that already exists in the project, will give you the option of updating all related terminals found in the same column or row rather than just changing the one terminal you directly edited.
The Snap to Din Rail toolbar button now highlights when the feature is enabled making it fast and easy to know the state of the feature.
The Project Options > Standards> Default Grid/Snap Settings have been enhanced to allow you to specify rectangular grids in which the X and Y values are different. You can also specify the grid reference and set the grid configuration to either ortho or isometric.
The Installation and Location filter fields in Reports now support picklists that are populated with the values used in the currently active project. Using the picklists avoids typos and ensures you are filtering on the desired values.
The Catalog Manager has been converted into a dock panel that enables you to dock the wizard in the drawing interface and collapse it to a tab if so desired.
The Database Update Tool for creating new databases or updating the schema of existing ones will now require a "sysadmin" role to execute these operations. This change was to better ensure that only authorized administrators can execute this functionality.
You now have independent control over the Project Backup and Restore features to grant or deny access to them separately.
