SpaceClaim 2012

A couple of quick highlights for this user-

Hyperlinks in Notes. It’s good to see the feature request queue getting flushed as upon review it looks like I made this request over two years ago. Going forward I would like to see indication of a notes hyperlink status on the note itself rather than having to look down at the status bar. I think it would be easy enough to change the mouse pointer to indicate a hyperlink but then again I’m not the one writing the software either. I’d also like to see the flexibilty to add a hyperlink to text fragments and not just the note as a whole. I wonder what it would take to be able to apply a CSS style sheet to the hyperlinked text…

OpenType fonts! A one line mention of this new capability was a hidden gem in the release notes for me. I opened a ticket on this issue last fall so it was nice to see this enhanced capability.

A shell extension with live interactivity. This is really nice. A fast way to look at parts without firing up the application. Strangely, there is no description of this feature other than a one line blurb at the top of the document. There also doesn’t appear to be an detailed description of API enhancements other than a bulleted list in the summary section.

55 pages of release notes to review and digest, whew! So far no problems opening up any of my existing models; smooth sailing thus far. Thanks to Spaceclaim for another release.
