Texture Generators
Matrix texture generators with 255 or more columns or rows caused project files to not be opened again.

LED Panels

Large LED structures built using a single generic LED panel could fall out from the fill lighting effect.
Fixtures Tab
The sequential assignment commands in the fixture tab did not always respect selection order.
Trim Height
Moving trusses did not reflect automatically in the trim height shown for trusses in plots.
Beam Intensity
The intensity of simplified multi-aperture beams was incorrect.
Deleting a snapshot caused the snapshots tab to loose focus on Windows, disabling all commands.
Fixture front mounts and yokes were placed incorrectly when cloned.
The center arrow also rendered for front mounts and yokes.
Narrow Beams
Precision issues could occur with very narrow beams, causing artefacts in the rendering.
Symbol Key
Scaling issues could occur in the symbol key when only very wide fixtures were present.
LED Panels
LED panels rendered in outline mode, causing individual panels in larger constructions to be invisible.
Version 2024.0.35, released the 26th March 2024

Model Import

Selected Items
It was sometimes possible to edit the properties of deleted objects, which would lead to crashes.
Visualisation of transparent objects did not work correctly on macOS.
DWG Import
Importing DWG files with multiple block references with varying non-affine transformations could produces broken objects.
