  1. Issues with displaying design and hole deviation traces were rectified.
  2. When clipping to surface topography in the Exclusion area tool, the safety factor was being applied twice which was causing a size mismatch between the calculated horizontal distance and the created polygon.  
  3. Some .dxf files were not importing into SHOTPlus™ due to hidden vertices1.
  4. Some .tif files were causing an error and not saving in a SHOTPlus™ file.
  5. The profile tool was not honouring minimum strata length defined in the strata rules.
  6. The "Blaster Printout" had a black background instead of a white background.
  7. When importing profile traces and marking strata, file size was increasing rapidly.
  8. Some users were triggering an error when trying to re-activate their license seat.
  9. A premature view refresh call was causing an "Invalid strata surfaces" dialog box to appear upon opening a file.


    1. Hidden vertices are displayed in SHOTPlus™ so surfaces may appear differently to other software packages.
