In Composite Settings:

Simplified UI consolidates all settings within a single table format

  • Drag skins to change skin order
  • “New” command creates a simple 1-skin composite
  • All Line Types now available as separators, including Symbol line types
  • Updated Preview shows Surface color as well as Cut Fill

In Profile Manager:

  • Simplified UI, smaller palette save “screen real estate” when fully open
  • “New” and “Duplicate” commands require naming the profile before creating it
  • “Apply to selection” correctly applies the stored profile

Benefits

  • More convenient workflow for handling composite and complex profile elements
  • Increased productivity when working with composite and complex profile elements
