QArb new release

Version 12.1   19th February 2021

New:

1.    Draw Constraints - Other tools – “Draw anon Stem/RPA” button - Draws anonymous tree stems and associated RPA’s.  An example usage is where you want stems drawn (and associated RPA's) calculated but within a single group with a shared canopy line.  The BS Category (if required) and stem diameters can be changed by controls either on the dialog or on the command line, if doing numerous stems.

Improved:

1.    Draw Constraints - RPA's - are now drawn when inputting trees even if they do not have a delegated BS5837 retention category (eg "A, B, C, U).

 

2.    App name - Respelled to "Qarb" from “QArb” to match capitalisation conventions of sister software "Qscape”.

Fixed:

1.    Edit Constraints dialog - The BS5837 cell dropdowns in the grid control were blank (rather than filled in with A,B,C etc).

 

2.    Draw Constraints - Constraints Include - Text in RPA polyline toggle - When changing to Continuous linetype – polylines wouldn’t update until  a manual "regen" was undertaken (AutoCAD).

Fixed:

1.    Qscape License Requests - Online option failed due to website switch from http to https protocol.

 

2.    AutoCAD only - HTML controls/forms - several Internet Explorer Script error messages would pop up registering for license keys using online option. AutoCAD now uses Browser rather than HTML forms for registering.

 


Version 8.0   20th November 2018

Version 7.0   13th September 2018

Supported CAD versions

·       BricsCAD Pro (or higher) V14 to V18.

·       AutoCAD 2014 to 2019.

New:

1.    AutoCAD 2019 supported.

 

2.    Preliminary support for High Res Screens - QArb GUI's (forms, controls, fonts etc) are now scaled in accordance with the Windows Display/DPI settings eg Text, App etc Scaling Overrides. NB Graphic buttons on GUI's and CAD toolbars/ribbon, don't yet scale unfortunately - So for small, super high res screens, where the App Scaling override needs to be very large, it is still better to "stop" down the resolution in Windows' "Display settings" to something like 1920 x 1080p.  (NB After changing display settings in Windows, you should log out then in again for CAD to work properly).

Fixed:

1.    Drawing of Tree Protection Fences (---TPF---) - when units were set to mm, the linetype text of previously drawn Fence lines would get reset.

 

2.    Drawing of Tree Protection Fences (---TPF---) - Error Handler didn't reset to the previous "plinewid" (polyline width) value.

Other:

1.    License troubleshoot commands added - "qarbregistermac" command to allow registering for a license key using a specific mac address; "qipconfig" command collects a pc's Network Adapter info and writes it to a text file called qipcfg.txt on desktop. Nb "qipconfigopen" opens qipcfg.txt in Notepad.

 

2.    The DosLib loader moved to menu file, so DosLib is now installed prior to the Qscape session starting, so DosLib copywrite now appear at the start of the CAD session rather than at QArb launch.

 

3.    AutoCAD - File support Paths - "..QArb\\Menu" subfolder now added to File support Paths at start up.  (AutoCAD 2019 requires Partial Menu files to be in file support paths despite not being necessary for AutoCAD 2018 and 2017).  Blanket added this for all AutoCAD installations as a precaution.

 


Version 6.2   30th April 2018

Improved:

1.    GUI - Draw Constraints tab -  The “Constraint Include” checkboxes are now contextually enabled/disabled (ie depending on the type of constraint being drawn eg “Draw polyline – Canopy” and whether the relevant data has been imported.

Fixed:

1.    Draw constraints - Inserting a group of trees - (2nd option of “Constraint Type”) - “Species” information was added to constraint's Reference label even when relevant checkbox was unchecked.

 

2.    Draw constraints - Inserting a group of trees - (2nd option of “Constraint Type”) - Shadow failed to be added when relevant checkbox was checked.

 

3.    Draw Constraints - Inserting a group of trees - (2nd option of “Constraint Type”) - When the "All/Used/Unused" List display combobox was set to "Unused" - an error message dialogue box would display and the relevant item was not deleted from the Constraints listview.

 

4.    GUI - Draw Constraints tab - A couple of the checkbox labels on the GUI were slightly truncated.

 

5.    GUI - Draw Constraints tab - Constraints ListView - "Stem X Coordinates" and "Stem Y Coordinates" columns were erroneously displayed despite being not imported.

 


Version 6.1   18th April 2018

New:

1.    Import CSV – Stem X and Y coordinates (Easting and Northing) fields added. (See also item 2 below).

 

2.    Constraints tab – Use Stem X Y Coordinates checkbox – This allows the tree to be automatically drawn at the specified coordinates within the drawing.  See also Item 3 below.

 

3.    Draw Constraints – Do Automatic leader checkbox - Will automatically draw the leader for the tree labels, instead of waiting for manual input from the user to pick 2nd leader point.  See also item 4 below.

 

4.    Draw Constraints - Automatic leader direction graphic button - Toggles the direction of the automatic leader.  The directions go clockwise  (Top right -> Right -> Bottom Right -> Bottom -> Bottom left etc).   See also Item 5 below.

 

5.    Draw Constraints - Automatic leader length textbox – Allows the desired leader length to be entered in metres. (Defaults to 3m if not specified).

 

6.    Draw Constraints – Constraints List - Multiple Select tools – “Select” button, “Clear” button and a “Quick Select” Combobox with selection critreria populated at runtime derived from the imported References eg if a reference naming convention of “T1”, “G1" “H2” is detected – the combobox will be populated with “ALL" "T*" "G*" “H*”.  Then if for instance T* is selected for instance - all references in the Constraints List beginning with "T" will be selected (and can be inputted at once) by pressing the “Go” button.

 

7.    Draw Constraints – “RPA” Polylines – Graphic Button to include the text “RPA” within the polylines - Toggles the linetype style between "----RPA-----RPA-----" and "Continuous".   See also Item 9 below.

 

8.    Draw Constraints – “TPF” Polylines Button – Draws polylines 0.1m wide of the style  "----TPF-----TPF-----" on the layer QArb-TPF.  See also Item 9 below.

 

9.    Settings - Font Height for polylines - Sets the font height of text in polylines where applicable.

Improved:

1.    "Fix Draw Order Button" - refines the draw order of entities still further with Cat A trees placed above Cat B trees, above Cat C trees etc.

 

2.    Settings - QArb layer prefix - Text limit extended from 6 characters to 18 characters - This allows greater flexibility with the prefixes, for instance a multidisciplinary company can now have for instance a prefix such as "ABC_Arb_?????" or even "ABC_Arboriculture_?????.

 

3.    Start up - If QArb is relaunched when the GUI is already active - A dialogue box now appears to confirm the choice.  If “No” is selected QArb will be centered on the screen and rolled down.

 

4.    Draw constraints - Leader checkbox replaces graphic button - gives extra clarity whether to add leaders to reference labels.

 

5.    Draw Constraints - Leader Graphic button recommissioned – now its simply a leader style rather than an include + styles options.  Now simply toggle between multi-leader style and and single leader style.

 

6.    General drafting - "Luprec" setting - This setting (Linear Unit Precision) controls how many decimal places CAD displays. Previously QArb would configure CAD to show precision (eg measurements) to three decimal places (eg 5.123m) when working in metres and zero decimal places when working in mm (eg 5123mm).  The luprec setting also affects some settings such as the "plinewid" setting (polyline width). So you could have a legacy plinewid setting of 0.05 but it will only displays as 0 (if working in mm). Unfortunately CAD doesn't display arcs when “plinewid” is set to very small number (but not 0) eg 0.05. Due to this potential confusion, Qscape is modified to sets luprec to 3 at start up (whether working in metres or mm).

 

7.    Modeless GUI's - now re-center on the screen when launched and already active.  This mitigates issues when the GUI may accidentally end up off screen. 

 

8.    Draw constraints tab – General interface refresh.

 

9.    Code – Now fully migrated to OpenDCL 8 now new lisp symbol naming conventions.

Fixed:

1.    New document events - (ie user switches between drawings, whilst QArb is launched others without) - Modeless GUI's froze and unseemly error messages would appear on the command line.  Occasional system crashes would occur too.  OnDocEvents now defined for all new drawings when the QArb menu is loaded in the CAD interface.

 

2.    "Fix Draw Order" button was broken - This button puts labels above canopies above RPA etc.  Regression added in v6.0.  Improvements also added see item 1 under “Whats Improved” above.

 


Version 6.0   24th November 2017

Supported CAD versions

·       BricsCAD Pro (or higher) V14 to V18.

·       AutoCAD 2010 to 2018.

 

New:

1.    BricsCAD V18 supported.

 

2.    Constraints Tab - Multiple Select feature – This is for inputting multiple constraints at once. When checkbox is ticked - Windows select multiple is activated (using SHIFT key for consecutive items and CTRL key for non-consecutive).  Once selected then right-click mouse or press "Go" to input at once.

a.    Tip 1: To select a consecutive group of constraints, click the first item, hold down the SHIFT key, and then click the last item.

b.    Tip 2: To select non-consecutive group of constraints, hold down CTRL, and then click each item you want to select.

 

3.    Settings – Viewport Configurator (QArbviewport) - A tool for the easy creation and querying of viewports.

Improved:

1.    Constraints Tab - All/Used/Unused toggle – (for the ListView) changed from a Label to a Combobox to make more obvious that the user can change the displayed data.

 

2.    Layer Name conventions – These have been rationalised, so the total number of layers is reduced and layer names shorter.  For instance "QArb_Canopy_Cat B_Pline" and "QArb_Canopy_Cat B_Hatch" become "QArb_Canopy_B"; "QArb_RPA_Cat A" and "QArb_RPA_Cat B" become "QArb_RPA".

 

Fixed:

1.    Cmdecho” setting - Qscape turned off cmdecho (Command Echo) setting at start up. This could cause confusion to advanced CAD users working interactively with lisp on the command line, due to missing prompts and messages. Code substantially rewritten to only surpress (and restore) cmdecho as and when required.

 

2.    AutoCAD (at least 2017 and 2018) - Drawing Trees with indented style canopies failed when the modelspace background colour was set to Ole rather than Aci colours.

 

 


Version 5.0   11th April 2017

Supported CAD versions

·       AutoCAD 2010 to 2018 (and verticals such as AutoCAD Architecture).

·       BricsCAD Pro/Platinum V14 to V17.

 

New:

1.    AutoCAD 2018 supported.

Fixed:

1.    Multistems - Combined stem diameter calculations (over five stems scenarios) - pp10-11 BS5837:2012.  QArb overestimated the combined stem diameter. For instance a set of 6 stems 12cm,6cm,10cm,8cm,4cm,12cm previously was calculated at 0.72m when it should have be 0.21m.  This means the RPA distances will be overestimated too.  Two to Five stem trees were correctly calculated.

 

2.    AutoCAD - Failed to start up cleanly (although would start) due to being unable to hide/show "QArb Poly" toolbar due to menu file issues (out of date ".mnr" files).

 

3.    AutoCAD 2017 - Numerous issues fixed throughout due to lack of conversion of "command" calls to "command-s" calls in code.

 


Version 4.0   18th January 2017

Supported CAD versions

·       AutoCAD 2010 to 2017 (and verticals such as AutoCAD Architecture).

·       BricsCAD Pro/Platinum V14 to V17.

 

New:

1.    AutoCAD 2017 supported.

 

2.    BricsCAD V17 supported.

 

 


Version 3.1   17th March 2016

Supported CAD versions

·       AutoCAD 2010 to 2016 (and verticals such as AutoCAD Architecture).

·       BricsCAD Pro/Platinum V14 to V16.

 

New:

1.    CSV Import Dialogue – “Quick Review” section  - This allows the user to check with a glance that their CSV header fields correctly correspond with QArb's.

 

2.    CSV Import - Bug/Typo Verification – A dialogue box will now appear after pressing the "Import" button flagging any tree references which have “suspect” data associated with them.  The criteria for a tree to be flagged is:

 

a.     Stem/Multistem diameters cannot be derived/calculated (see also Item 1 under "Improved" below).

b.     Canopy spread cannot be derived.

c.     Height cannot be derived (if applicable).

d.     Stem diameters over 1.5m queried.

e.     Canopy spreads over 12m in any one direction queried.

 

3.    CSV import dialogue - Splitters between comboboxes/listboxes - Splitters can be dragged to adjust the width of the comboboxes/listboxes to read truncated information.

 

4.    CSV Import Dialogue – Additional Information Label showing the current active combobox text – the label shows the information of the combobox underneath the mouse cursor.  This is to Improve clarity where the CSV header text gets truncated within combobox (because the combobox isn’t wide enough).  An example of where this information label is useful would be if the CSV reads “Tree Canopy Spread N” but the combobox reads  “Tree Canopy Spr..”.  The Label will still read “Tree Canopy Spread N”.

 

5.    Draw Constraints tab – Alphanumeric sorting button – This button toggles the ListView between alphanumeric and collected order.  Eg if Collected Order is T1, T2, G3, T4, G5, it will change he order to G3, G5, T1, T2 T4.

 

6.    Draw Constraints tab - Find dialogue box - "Auto Zoom" checkbox - If checked, labels will be automatically zoomed with each selection change event within the list of found references.  A Back/Close button has been added too.

 

7.    Draw Constraints tab – Use BS5837 RGB colours for labels button - Toggles Reference labels between the relevant BS5837 RGB colour and Black/white (ACI Index 7).

 

8.    Start up - Right-click repeat ("shortcutmenu" setting) configured automatically -  BricsCAD V16 and AutoCAD users automatically get the "Time-sensitive right click configured", BricsCAD v15 and lower the default mode Shortcut menu supressed.  This setting became an issue with the new Draw Constraints "Autoscroll" feature and hopefully negates the necessity of delving into CAD's settings to take full advantage.

 

Improved:

1.    CSV Import – More robust import of stem data  (multistems in particular) – There is now less scope for human error. Instead of parsing, all non-numerical data is now ignored.  If one number found, it is treated as a single stem, if multiple are found, it is treated as a multistem.  So for instance "25,45,23;12" still works, "mstem 25;12,24" still works.  A further failsafe has been added - If there is any ambiguity the reference will be recorded, the user is alerted (see Item 2, under “What’s new”).  Additionally the stem diameter will appear as "??" in the Draw constraints ListView and a stem (and by defacto RPA) cannot be drawn until the information has been edited (a cross will be drawn for the stem, RPA not drawn at all) and the user will be alerted again at drawing time.  NB Non recognised canopy spreads/height will be drawn as 0.

 

2.    CSV Import –1,000 comma separators not supported and now checked for.  For instance a Tree stem (units = mm) 1000 and 1000.00 will be read but 1,000 or 1,000.00 will not be read and QArb will alert you accordingly.  NB Because of this comma issue, it is recommended not to use commas for multistem deliminators eg 50,60,70 as an occasional false positive may occur for a 1,000 comma separator in the sting pattern matching may occur.  Not a problem as you will be alerted accordingly, but it maybe necessary to re-edit that particular mulitistem using a different delimitator such as a ";" or a " ".

 

 

3.    CSV Import - CSV Tree References – if there is no data associated, they are no longer imported.

 

4.    Draw Constraints - Multistems.  Command line output augmented to show derived stem diameter calculation.

 

5.    Draw Constraints - Rolling up the form - The background colour now only changes to the BS5837 colour for Cat A,B and U trees. The generally most common Cat C, doesn't change colour.  This is because the Cat C grey colour does not stand out well in the CAD interface.  Tooltip added also.

 

6.    Draw Constraints - Edit Constraints dialogue - For long lists when adding a row, the list automatically scrolls to the new row for editing.

 

7.    Draw Constraints - Canopy Styles - Where average canopy spread is less than 2m for indents/small arcs and 4m for large arcs, canopies are still drawn as simple polylines to avoid overly distorting the overall canopy shape.

 

 

Fixed:

1.    Draw Constraints - Shadow Checkbox - Incorrectly enabled/disabled Species Checkbox.

 

2.    Draw Constraints - Tree Labels - Labels failed to be drawn if the "Species" checkbox was ticked, but the species field is empty for the relevant Tree reference.

 

3.    Draw Constraints - ListView - when long and set to "UNUSED" items, the current selection/next selection would scroll out of view after drawing the constraint.

 

4.    Startup – Debugging – log file failed to be copied to user desktop.

 

5.    Startup - A couple of rogue unwanted linetypes were accidentally brought in.

 

6.    Drawing setup/Settings - Layer Name Prefix Setup - Failed to update existing layers when retrospectively changing the layer prefix.

 

 


Version 3.0   26th November 2016

Supported CAD versions

·       AutoCAD 2010 to 2016 (and verticals such as AutoCAD Architecture).

·       BricsCAD Pro/Platinum V14 to V16.

 

New:

1. Support for BricsCAD V16.

 

Improved:

1. Draw Constraints - Canopy generation - now more biomorphic/natural looking in shape. (More circular canopies were introduced in v2.6, now deemed a regression).

2. Draw Constraints - Canopy generation - Faster in AutoCAD and minus the command line clutter within BricsCAD.

 

Fixed:

1. Draw Constraints - All/Used/Unused toggle - When set to unused.  Error occurred when inputting the constraint.

 


Version 2.6   19th October 2015

Supported CAD versions

·       AutoCAD 2010 to 2016 (and verticals such as AutoCAD Architecture).

·       BricsCAD Pro/Platinum v14 to v15.

 

New:

 

1.    Standalone QArb – having Qscape installed is now not required to use QArb.  Software also now utilises its own licenses.  Please note it will be necessary to register for a new license key.

 

2.    Draw Constraint – Shadows – option now added.

 

3.    Draw Constraint - Listview – Selection events - right-click mouse repeat – A useful timesaver as it negates the need to continually revisit the listview when adding lots of trees if used in conjunction with the new “Autoscroll” feature, see item 7.

 

4.    Constraints CSV Import – Settings/File remembered – Once the settings (corresponding file headers, units used, file name/location etc) is configured.   They will be remembered for the next CAD session.  After the initial configuration, this will be a great time saver.   

 

5.    Draw Constraint  Settings/tool configurations remembered - eg Canopy style, draw mode, what to include etc now remembered for the next CAD session.

 

6.    Drawing Setup - North Direction widget - Left, right and down buttons added. North direction is now automatically saved to the drawing, so “Save” button removed.

 

7.    Draw Constraint - Autoscroll checkbox – When ticked - The Listview current selection automatically moves down one after the tree is inserted into the drawing.  A useful timesaver when used in conjunction with the new “right-click” repeat feature see Item 3.

 

8.    Draw Constraints tab  - “Find" button – Zooms/Unzooms to selected tree references within the drawing.

 

9.    Command - "Qarb_baseplan" - brings in practice layout for practice, demos, training etc.

 

10. CAD interface - Menu/Ribbon – now added.

 

11. Startup – Debugging - now added to start up to aid troubleshooting should it be required.

 

12. Draw Constraint – Species - Option to select position relative to the reference label.

 

Improved:

 

1.    North Direction widget/Drawing constraints - Twisted views (“viewtwist” setting in CAD) now accommodated.  Usually not an issue, but may occasionally be required.  NB North is always derived from the widget regardless of the viewtwist / XY axis of the UCS in a drawing.

 

Fixed:

 

1.    Draw Contraints - Listview - Long lists of Arb data would cause the listview to jump/scroll back to the wrong place after adding a constraint.

 

2.    Draw Contraints - Listview - Crash caused by attempting to draw RPA's when no stem width is specified.

 

3.    Settings button – Tooltip - was incorrect.

 

 


Version 2.5   25th June 2015

Supported CAD versions

·       AutoCAD 2010 to 2016 (and verticals such as AutoCAD Architecture).

·       BricsCAD Pro/Platinum v14 to v15.

 

New:

1. Species column added to Constraints Tab (Optional). Species can be appended to Reference labels if desired.

2. Settings button and dedicated dialogue box added.  Included settings are:

          i)   Layer Prefix setting. (Migrated from the "Drawing Setup" tab on QArb).

          ii)  Font style

          iii) Font Height

          iv)  Leader style (arrow heads).

3. All settings can now be saved as defaults.

 

Improved:

1. CSV Import dialogue - Better string pattern matching for column headers.

2. CSV Import - Error occurred when attempting to import the csv file whilst open in another application eg Excel.  Warning message to close the application added.

 

Fixed:

1. Layer Prefix Save failed in AutoCAD.

2. Edit Constraints Grid - The check for comma delimitator characters was for the second row rather than the second column (stem diametres).

3. AutoCAD - Manully drawing polylines with arcs style, intermittantly faced the arcs the wrong way.

4. AutoCAD - Canopy Polyline -> RPA Polylines button. Failed intermittantly. Error message also added of offset fails.

5. Constraints Tab - Empty Tree Reference fields caused error when inputting Trees.

 


Version 2.4   29th April 2015

Supported CAD versions

·       AutoCAD 2010 to 2016 (and verticals such as AutoCAD Architecture).

·       BricsCAD Pro/Platinum v14 to v15.

 

New:

 

1. Support for AutoCAD 2010 to 2015.

 

Fixed:

 

1. Canopy->RPA button failed when clicking on some manually drawn canopy polylines.

 

2. Multistyle leaders sometimes appeared in slightly wrong place if esnap/osnap was on.

 

3. Existing Off layers weren't turned on before Qarb drew entities on them.

 

 


Version 2.3   27th April 2015

Supported CAD versions

·       BricsCAD Pro/Platinum v12 to v15.

 

New:

 

1. New "Qscape style" interface. (Still work to be done).

 

2. Constraints data editing now done on a separate dialogue.

 

3. Canopy->RPA button.  Creates RPA's from canopy polylines.  Has a textbox next to it to give user opportunity to add an offset distance (+ or -).

 

4. Draw mode - Option to draw RPA polylines manually added.

 

5. "All, Used & unused" toggle button added, to quickly see what labels have been added.

 

6. "Stems only" drawing mode now removed, as not required. (Effect can be achieved through the "Include checkboxes".

 

Improved:

 

1.  Arc (revcloud) type canopy polylines are now offset, so the outside of the arcs reflect the canopy edge rather than the inside of the arcs.

 

2.  Arcs in arc type canopy lines are now constant length.  (This is required so the offset can be calculated to truly reflect the canopy edge).  However two arc lengths are now offered (1m and 2m). 

 

3.  TrueColour RGB values now used to draw the trees and RPA's rather than AutoCAD Index values to better accord with BS and dovetail with client ctb files.

 

Fixed:

 

1. RPA Hatches were put on Canopy layers.

 

2. Canopy hatches put on stem hatch layers.

 

3. Manually drawn canopy lines.  The layer prefix was "Arb-" even if this setting had been changed on the Drawing Setup tab.

 

4. Manually drawn canopy polylines - labels weren't added.

 

 


Version 2.2   2nd April 2015

Supported CAD versions

·       Bricscad Pro/Platinum v14 to v15.

Supported CAD versions

·       BricsCAD Pro/Platinum v14 to v14.

 

Changed:

 

1. Open new drawings - QArb dialogue (if already open) now automatically closes. Prior to this it stayed open and would crash CAd, if an attem,pt was made to close it.

 

2. QArb split into "Drawing Setup" and "Tree Constraints" tabs and automatically resizes according to tab.

 

3. Model form added that can robustly import data from assorted CSV files.

 

4. Canopy polylines now default to "straight" style rather than "indented".

 

5. Drawing trees etc. Error trapping improved.  Don't need to press "undo" multiple times.

 

6. Drawings units - mm now supported.

 

7. Wavy canopy polyline included.
