What's New Highlights

Components Center (Technical Preview)

Components Center is a CONNECT service where Bentley publishes software content and users can upload their own custom content to be shared among all their users.

  • Users can have immediate access to the latest published content from Bentley.
  • Users can maintain their custom content on Components Center making catalog administration easy.  Changes that are pushed to components center will automatically be available to all users in your organization. 

The Insert Symbol and Insert Cable features can query content found in Components center and insert the content into a design file by downloading the symbols to a local cache folder.

Enhanced Field Settings

Several enhancements have been made to make inserting fields more flexible than ever before.

  • New Project Option>Field Settings allow you to create a custom expression using the installation and location variables so that you can even specify the installation and location values on separate lines.  You can also define the default field parameters for colors, line type, and text settings in order to define a default corporate standard.
  • Fields can now be defined either as a block or any custom defined shape enabling you greater flexibility to capture the specific components that you need. 

Even and Odd Automatic Wire Numbering

You now have the flexibility to specify even and odd wire numbering schemes when automatically assigning wire numbers to selected pages or circuits making it faster and easier to adhere to various electrical standards that require this type of numbering scheme.

Dock Symbol Creation Wizard

The Symbol Creation Wizard has been adjusted to a more vertical layout and 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.

PLC I/O Text Import Enhancement

You now have the option of including Installation, Location, and Device Tags in your Excel import files to specifically identify a device that the I/O addresses apply to.  When these fields are specified in the import file, the software will only apply the I/O text to the device that matches the ID specified in your import file.

Symbol Text Editing

You now have the ability to right click in the Symbol Text dialog and remove an attribute associated with the selected symbol.

Cable Diagram Conductor Text Visibility

You now have the ability to turn on or off the visibility of Cable Diagram conductor text using a new display setting found in the View>Display menu.

Configuration Enhancements

  • Added a Create Catalog button to the Configuration Variables > ELEC_CATALOG_PATH > Modify Catalog Paths dialog to create a new symbol catalog.

ProjectWise Integration Enhancement

  • Added support for the IMS login type.
