Improvements in Wilcom ES 2006 SP2

General digitizing and user interface

General system speed

In the current ES 2006 release, customers report problems with response time while digitizing. Speed problems

have been identified when tabbing from inputs and runs, opening designs, using travel tools, and opening the

Color-Object List. These problems have now been rectified.

Traveling by stitches

With the current ES 2006 release, traveling through designs by stitches is slow especially with the Object

Properties dialog open (the Underlay tab in particular). Certain fields blink while traveling. This problem has now

been rectified.

Object selection state in Color-Object List and Design Window

With the current ES 2006 release, the selection states of objects in the Color-Object List and Design Window do

not always correspond. If objects are grouped and then ungrouped, they stay highlighted in the Color-Object List

but fail to stay highlighted in the Design Window. This problem has now been rectified.

Show Repeats standard in Level 45 and 65

With the ES 2006 SP2 release, the Show Repeats command is now standard for ALL machine formats (not just

Schiffli) in Level 45 and Level 65.

Show Bitmaps/Vectors when viewing by colors

With the current ES 2006 release, the Show Bitmaps and Show Vectors toggles do not work when viewing

designs by colors. This problem has now been rectified.
