  1. Flipping a component during move no longer loses the ref point.
  2. The actual height of a component that has a 3D body with a non-zero OffsetHeight is now calculated correctly for DRC.
  3. Shift click now enters inplace edit of selected text object when Shift Click to Select preference is enabled.
  4. ODB++ Output will now export Signal Layer Polygon Regions to corresponding ODB++ nets in case they are part of any PCB nets.

For detailed information on what is delivered with this update, read the release notes.

The delivery of these fixes affects the following nine modules:

  2. Hardware Support Packages category:
