    Hello ConDoc Designers!

    We have a few fixes and some new features for you in ConDoc 5.1…

    • You can now add unlimited custom LOCATION tags that are recognized by the ConDoc System tag states.  This makes it possible to break your model up in more useful ways than just interior and exterior.  We added a “LOCATION_Site” tag to the ARCHITECT drawing set.  Interior designers might consider adding locations by room to quickly and easily isolate specific areas of the model.
    • We added a new option in the Configurator settings, “Show tags not defined in drawing set”.  This allows you to force all unpredictable tags on, then chip away visibility with your predictable ConDoc Tags.  This expands compatibility with other extensions like John Brock’s Estimator for SketchUp.
    • We spent a significant amount of time mastering FlexTools and the Medeek Engineering Tools to create corresponding drawing sets.  You will find them in the LABS folder.  These definitely work and do amazing automations, but please be sure to archive your projects before using.
    • We fixed the ConDoc Export crash for SketchUp 2023 on Mac.  This version automatically detects your version and applies the appropriate exporter.  If you ever need to trouble shoot the ConDoc Export, you can force the legacy exporter from Extensions > ConDoc > Help > Advanced > Use Legacy Export.
    • ConDoc Drawing Data is now attached to the scenes when they are created.  This allows you to purge your models, specifically tags, without disrupting ConDoc scenes that have already been created.

    You can download the latest version from you profile page, or initiate the update from the Extensions dropdown > ConDoc > Help > Check for Update…

    We sincerely appreciate your patience and help while we were working on this version.  I will be sending out some emails with tutorials next week.  Talk soon!

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    I’m getting  SketchUp pop-up window to upgrade 23.0.419. If I do that will I need to re-install ConDoc to the latest version? Will there be any issues with current files by doing this upgrade?

    Hello Blake!  You won’t have to reinstall ConDoc, should not be any issue with upgrading your SketchUp or ConDoc versions…  or the files.  Only the annual releases require reinstalling all of the extensions.

    Thanks Mike! I have a related question. It sounds like the new 5.1… allows you to purge sketchup files without causing any problems with Condoc, but I recall last we met you said that doing a SketchUp purge will cause an issue with ConDoc. Has that changed?

    Hello Mike,

    ConDoc 5 is much improved over your earlier versions. In ConDoc 5.1, when I create ConDoc scenes , the scene tray icons and titles flicker in the Scenes Tray. I have removed and reinstalled ConDoc 5.1 and the Scene Tray titles still flicker. The flickering happens before the scenes are sent to layout. I do not know how to fix this. I can send a screen shot video.

    Please help.

    Best regards,
    Glenn Richardson
