TableToPDF Deprecation

The TableToPDF module is now deprecated and will be dropped by the end of year 2024. Please contact our “Support” Team (https://partner.support.techsoft3d.com/servicedesk/customer/portals) if you have questions regarding this capability. This add-on is used for HOOPS Publish Integration and creating tables in PDF documents.

Enhancements

  • CreateNormalisationTransformation() New method added to the API that converts transformation matrices from pixel coordinates to window coordinates. See the Changing window size subsection on the Cameras page of the Programming Guide for additional information.

Functional changes

  • File Import Status Handling Import() for Stream, STL, OBJ and point cloud file types now takes ImportNotifier as an argument instead of returning it as a value. This ensures the ImportNotifier exists before starting the import operation in order to better catch errors that can occur during the import process. Previously, if an error occured before the notifier was constructed, then it was possible the notifer would not reach the EmergencyHandler. static ImportNotifier Import(char const* in_file_name, ImportOptionsKit const& in_options) is now deprecated and will be removed in a future release.

  • Text Rendering Text is now drawn in cases where its size is matrix dependnent (e.g. underlined text) and segment display lists are on.

  • Highlights Geometry remains visible when segements with line weight greater than zero are highlighted. Highlights of different styles on different segments display the requested highlight. Individual shell vertices colored by RGBA can be highlighted.

  • Handles Operator Handles are visible when using Metal driver.

  • Orbit Operator Orbit operator behavior is consistent regardless of window size by using CreateNormalisationTransformation().
