The all Intel version of BoA, a French-based 3D architectural CAD software package available in International English and French, has been updated with minor improvements and bug fixes.
There are several new features in this update. In the Text palette the function “set non horizontal text” has been broken into two functions instead of one. One function is to wrap the text and the second function is to set the text on a completed line. Also a “flag” has been added to the blocks functionalities. It is now possible to hide the edges of a block so that only the faces of a block remain visible. The flag is a checkbox in the Edit Block dialog palette.
Yet another new minor feature is the new option 45 degree shadow choice in the hidden line manager. Moreover, the four (4) elevation item in the Windows menu has been replaced by a palette to show the elevation data in an easier way. Lastly, a PDF file imported into BoA can now be shown by page instead of just limited to the first page — useful for multi-page PDF files.
With the user interface there are now three (3) main preference managers instead of two (2). These now comprise the following:
- Preferences: General preferences (like export parameters, etc.)
- File Utilities: Work parameters (like snap, etc.)
- List Utilities: List managers like Layers, etc.
