Icovia for Interior Designers Version 3.0
Icovia DE version 3.0 will be out VERY soon! Because subscribers fees include all upgrades and updates, this is 100% good news for our users. So what's the good news with this release, you ask?
The Help System has been completely redesigned. We recognize that our users come from a wide variety of interest, skills and needs. This help system was architected to be very easy to use, whether you seek information about particular commands / tools, or you seek task-based information. Each page contains far more information, and easy navigation to relevant information.
Many new icons have been added to this version. New icon groups includes:
Decks / Patios
Hot Tubs / Spas
Trees / Shrubs
Garden / Flower
Driveways / Pathways
Walls / Fences
Gym & Fitness:
Boxing & Martial Arts
Excice Bikes and Indoo
Lower Body & Leg Machines
Total Body Gyms
Yoga & Aerobics
Cars / Trucks
New two-tiered icon browser. As the list of icons increases, we realized that we had to provide an easier way to find what you're looking for. Our design guru's brainstormed the issue and came up with a great solution. The icon browser now has two levels: Categories and Subcategories. You may have noticed that the list of new icon groups show above was displayed in this fashion. Additional icons were added to existing icon groups as well.
Adding a breakpoint (segment or corner) to walls, area dimensions and floors is much easier now. The previous method was to double click on an edge. The problem was that the second click was not always recognized because of a problem with the underlying (flash) technology. Now, all you need to do is click once on a edge, while holding the <Ctrl> key down. Try it, I know you'll love it!
Other improvements include warnings for the "Delete All...." commands, consistent door and window snaping and 90 degree snap for line dimensions. Let us know what you want to see in future releases. Go to the Request For Enhancement category of this blog.
