A complete revision of
the program, the most important changes and extensions include:
use of an unlimited number of materials in jobs and sets;
substantially extended and revised records on materials; records
on receipts and issues of individual formats; renewed edge
covering strips and records on other components; cost calculation
for jobs and sets; material mass changes in jobs and sets;
modified printout of cutting plans; functions to simplify data
entry; higher performance of an optimising algorithm; extended
records on jobs; an option to save calculated cutting plans into a
file and read them from a file; automatic changes in material
stock after calculation of a cutting plan including an entry into
receipt and issue records; completely revised dimension entry
system the dimensions can be entered in millimetres,
centimetres, decimetres, metres, decimal inches, fractional
inches, feet and inches; when the setting for a unit of measure is
changed, all the dimensions in the program are recalculated
correctly automatically; an option to enter correctly an
individual dimension in a unit of measure different than that set;
automatic recalculation of dimensions of the boards of the set
when external dimensions are changed; revised manual in *.pdf
format; and many other smaller modifications and
A registration system has also been changed and
5 registration levels have been established in this
For registered users of version 2.0 and
All the users registered so far will become the
highest registration level
automatically. This way, I would like to ask them to send a notice
on installation of the version 2.1-2.14 to the address email@example.com, because of
updating their e-mail addresses. A new registration will be sent
to them in return.
With respect to extensive changes
in the database, the data from backup files created in older
versions cannot be restored in the version 2.1. So, if you need to
get the data from your backup file into the version 2.1, restore
the data in the previous version of the program first and only
then install the upgrade 2.1. I.e. data conversion is performed
upon starting the program for the first time and it is also
necessary to set up the program again.
