miniCAD 5.1 Release Notes for existing miniCAD 5.0 users.


A normal install of version 5.1 will replace your current miniCAD 5.0 To evaluate 5.1 you may, either install it over V5.0 or, install a separate copy beside V5.0. (Follow the steps below for the later.) You can also install V5.0 back over V5.1 later, to restore your system.

If you have V5.0 installed and wish to evaluate miniCAD 5.1 you may want to copy your current configuration file: minicad.config.xml. Place the existing file in the new release folder and your plot and other settings will be available.

Some features of V5.1 require new entries in your minicad.config.xml Names section. Select Tools >> Options >> Names (tab) and press the "Refresh" button to create the new name entries.

Install Procedures - Evaluation:
(i.e. to test V5.1, keeping your existing V5.0 release)

. Download and start the install program (setup_V51.exe)
. At the Select Destination prompt: add "TESTV51" or similar to the folder name.
. Press Next.
. At the Start Menu Folder repeat the previous step. i.e. to give the folder a new name.
. Press Next then Install.
At the Start - Programs menu you will now find the shortcut to your separate "TESTV51" version of miniCAD.

To Remove An Evaluation Version.

Use Control Panel: Add - Remove programs.

You may also install V5.0 back over V5.1 to return to the previous version.

NOTE: If you change the destination folder the next time you install minicad you will have to reset the Destination and folder names because Windows remember's your entries. (i.e. and applies them to future installs ! )

Display of Point Cross.

In version 5.0.4 new layer attributes were introduced. These may be set to avoid display of point attributes. (cross, code, height or number.) When opening older jobs (from Version 4) you may need to reset these flags. Go to Layers and select all (ctrl-a) and then set the attributes to display. Also a point code of TEXT will stop point attributes from being displayed or plotted.
