Improvements To Onshape - April 13th, 2018
This week not only has the arrival of warm weather in the Northeast but also, another Onshape update. Check out all the awesome new features that were added with this most recent update! Let's dig in!
EDITING LINKED DOCUMENTS IN-CONTEXT
Onshape Assemblies now support the ability to edit and create in-context geometry across linked documents. When returning to your top-level assembly from another document, Onshape gives you the option to automatically version the linked document and update the parent document to reflect those changes.
CONFIGURE SKETCH TEXT
With this update, we've added the ability to configure sketch text.
SHEET FLYOUT PANEL AND TAB
EDIT: This has temporarily been disabled due to performance issues.
In Drawings, we've redesigned the sheets flyout panel behavior to give you a better overview of the contents of views and their references. You can find the icon to open flyout panel on the left side of the screen, similar to our configuration, simultaneous BOM, and sheet metal panels. This change gives us a better foundation for future work.
ADJUSTING CONFIGURATION NAME COLUMN WIDTHIn the configuration panel you will now be able to adjust the width of the Name column to remove extra whitespace in your tables. This keeps the panel size to a minimum.
RELEASE MANAGEMENT FOR USERS THAT BELONG TO MULTIPLE COMPANIES
If you're part of multiple Onshape companies you will now find that a document's release management workflow will adhere to the release settings of the company that owns the document.
Remember: The updates listed here are now live for all users when creating new Documents and over the next few days these features will also be available in Documents created before the date of this update.
