MicroStation CONNECT Edition Support

Integration with MicroStation CONNECT Edition is now supported with this release of the OpenFlows storm-sewer products.

AutoCAD 2022 Integration

AutoCAD 2022 integration is supported starting with this version of the OpenFlows water products. Support for AutoCAD 2021, AutoCAD 2020, and AutoCAD 2019 is also included.

Select in Drawing option in Profiles

A Select in Drawing option has been included in the Profiles manager. Selecting this will select the elements of the profile in the drawing. You would then be able to create a selection set, add to an existing selection set, or view the properties of the elements in the profile.

Bing Maps background transparency

You can enter the transparency for the Bing Maps background, using a value from 0% to 100%. If you have an existing model with a Bing Maps background layer you can edit the background layer by right-clicking on the Bing Maps background layer and choosing Edit. When you set the transparency and click OK, the transparency will be updated.

For more information on Bing Maps backgrounds, see this link: Using Bing Maps as a Background Layer.

Location persistence for Select toolbar

The Select toolbar, which is used in element selection for features like Active Topology, graphs, and other features, will now reopen in the last location used after it was closed. This can be useful to avoid needing to move the Select toolbar from the middle of the drawing if you have zoomed to a given element you want to select.
