Sherlock

Our Navisworks plugin that unlocks a world of features and power-ups that Navisworks alone cannot provide.

Procore logos next to linked clashes

Previously, it was impossible to tell which clashes were already linked to Procore CI’s just by looking at the clash detective. We now add a Procore logo next to the clash name as an indicator that it has been linked.

Clash comments and redline text to Procore CI description

When creating Procore Coordination issues via Sherlock you can now choose to include clash comments and/or clash redline text in the description field of the created issue. This will be appended to whatever you write in the description field in the dialog.

 

Updated Item1 & Item2 name replacement (Again)

In this release we have changed this again to hopefully work with everyone’s workflow. You can now customize what we pull into the Item1 & 2 name tags by reordering your Quick Properties. We now always pull the first Quick Property as the name. See the video for a more detailed breakdown of this.

Shortcuts you never knew you could have

Have you ever wondered why there are no keyboard shortcuts for the clash detective? So did we and now you have them! We have implemented shortcuts for highlight all, dim other, hide other and clash status changes.  We even added one that applies a quick filter for status and assignment (something Navisworks doesn’t have built in).

Closing an Area got a lot easier

The Enter key now closes an area you are drawing. Right mouse click also does this. Note: You must have already drawn at least 3 vertices for these shortcuts to work.

The threshold for closing an area by clicking near the first point has been increased to more easily click it. It also now shows a dot the size of the threshold.

Bugs

We’re always hard at work squashing bugs!
  • Fixed an issue causing Viewpoints to say it finished but no viewpoints were actually saved.
  • Fixed an issue with saving viewpoints without using the timestamped top-level folder.
  • Fixed an issue where Rename would not find related Areas for a clash if you had not previously used Distill or the Area tool in this Navisworks session.

Platform

The base we build from to create everything FlyPaper.

Filter by area now shows that area and its sub areas

Previously if you filtered by a specific area our filters would remove all records that did not exactly match that area. Now when you filter by an area we show all records that match that area as well as any of its subareas.

Favorite any project to add it to your quick access list

Have a lot of projects you’re a part of but only review some of them regularly? Now you can favorite those projects so they appear at the top of your project picker for quick access.

Bugs

No new features were added to Daily in this release but we did squash some bugs.

  • Resolved an issue where using the report generator to download many daily reports at the same time was failing for large projects.
  • You can now read the entire description of a worklog when it is read only for you. It was previously cut off.

Improvements to importing P6 activities

You can now associate your P6 discipline codes with a Company in FlyPaper so that PlanScan can automatically map activities to their respective companies on import.

  • You can now associate your P6 WBS codes with Areas in FlyPaper so that PlanScan can automatically map activities to their respective Areas.
  • Crew size is now optional since crew size isn’t typically in P6. Most users were just entering 1 and never updating it.

Easier management of activity predecessors

Previously if you wanted to remove a predecessor from an activity you had to find it in the long list of activities to uncheck it. Now all of the currently selected activities are shown at the top of the dialog with X buttons for you to remove them quickly.

 

Constraints now automatically resolve

If all of the activities that are constrained by a constraint are marked as complete then the constraint will be automatically resolved

Bugs

  • Fixed issue where the PlanScan lock banner would not disappear when switching between projects
  • Fixed the Unlock button in Constraints
  • Fixed an issue with blank sticky notes causing the print preview to not show up.
  • Fixed an issue where creating a company from an Activity’s company field did not actually create the company.
  • Corrected a miscalculation on the PPC report.
  • Fixed an issue where the Timeline would zoom way out as you added or removed filters.
