15.4.7 contains the another round of bug fixes.
15.4.6 contains the another round of bug fixes.
15.4.5 contains just a few fixes to address some bugs.
This update contains just a few fixes to finish of a major round fixing user-reported bugs for 15.4.
This update contains several fixes to previous 15.4 versions. If you have 15.4.2 or below of the 15.4 series of updates, please update to 15.4.3.
This update brings some critical fixes to WinBidPro 15.4. Several bugs were reported shortly after 15.4.1 was released and are fixed in this release.
This update brings 15.4 out of beta and into a stable release. It contains mostly bug fixes for issues that have been around since before the 15.4.0 beta and also has a couple minor feature enhancements:
This was a big update that we took months to create. It offers significant performance improvements that make WinBidPro work much better in a multi- user environment. In addition, this update includes improvements to drawings, the UI of several windows, and fixes several bugs. The complete list of improvements is below:
Fixed a bug when the color was changed for a job, the Final Parts Report showed the correct pricing, but not the correct color name.
Fixed an error that would occur after deleting a job and trying to enter a new job immediately after.
Fixed a bug where Door Stop cut sizes were not getting adjusted with the < or > symbols after the part numbers.
Fixed a problem with labor Cut counts where the new method was including the multiple elevation quantities in the cut count. A check box was added to the Labor Defaults window that will allow you to choose this method of calculation. When the box is unchecked, the program will use the older method of counting cuts by component instead of each part.
Fixed bug in Backup Jobs feature that was not updating backup database to include new fields. Also updated the BackupTemplate.mdb file.
Fixed Optimizer so that it will allow 0” cut pieces to be optimized. This can occur if you have a 0” Unequal Panel in order to have 2 verticals butted together. We also prevent 0” cut pieces from showing up in the Optimizer.
Fixed a bug in the Hardware window when trying to Copy a hardware part. Part will now copy and the word “Copy” is added to the front of the part number copied.
Rearranged columns in Final Labor Summary Report so that fabrication and installation information is grouped respectively.
Fixed a bug with the tax for labor in the Markup Report. Tax was not calculated when the “Do Not Tax Markup Amount” box was checked.
Fixed older bug that created a “Too Big” problem in the Optimizer when Sill Flashing material was spliced and had a “>” value added to the part number. The program was adding the extra length to a full stock piece and causing the “Too Big” message.
Fixed problem with “Add to Vertical” setting in the framing system settings window.
Made glass table in the Glass Tab resize when the width of the main window grows. More columns can be seen this way when you have a larger monitor.
(.2.4 update) Fixed a problem with the “Print Lineal Report” in the Optimizer window. The new Quantity values in the Optimizer were not getting calculated in the Lineal Report.
(.2.4 update) Fixed a problem that would result in a “Too Big” message in the Optimizer. Cut sizes that were within a saw blade thickness of a full stock length were getting this error when they should not.
(.2.4 update) Spliced vertical material that had a add/deduct to the part cut length (via the < or > symbols in the frame parts window) were getting adjusted on the longer piece when there were multiple lengths required. The deduction will now be made only to the last piece at the top of the elevation.
(.2.4 update) Fixed error when there are no stock lengths for a job when you try to print the Metal Recap report.
Added a Check box to Delete Jobs after they are backed up (in the Jobs Window). This is essentially an Archive feature that lets you backup and shrink your Jobs list.
Added an export option to the Final Glass Report that will export all glass records to a CSV file by elevation. This export includes the #g* labels that are assigned to all glass by the program. This is the same label that can be shown on the drawings, and the printed labels.
Added Elevation Width, Height, and Number of Panels to the GTS Export feature in the Elevation and Job Labor window when the Final Labor Summary Report is run.
Fixed problem with the program not closing completely and causing a “Program already running” message.
Changed labor Cut calculation to use the actual cut part quantity listed in the optimizer. The job must be optimized before this count can be used. If there are no stock length part numbers listed for the elevation, or if the Optimizer was not used, the program will use the basic stock component count for the elevation.
Fixed Job Glass window so that the list can be filtered with any column in the grid. Previously, numeric columns weren’t working with the filter.
Added Frame Width, Height, and Panels to the GTS labor export feature in the Elevation and Job Labor window. Also added a Help button to show what data is being exported.
Added feature where a frame system modified for a job can be saved to the master list for use later. An “Add to Master” button was added to the Framing System Parts window.
Finally fixed an elusive bug where two framing systems could get applied to a single elevation. This was causing problems with parts in the optimizer. This seemed to only occur with new elevations when a different frame was picked before exiting the Elevation Info window.
Fixed a bug introduced in the Beta version where parts with the multiple symbol (*) and those duplicated for a given component were not getting picked up properly in the Optimizer.
Fixed a problem with Sub-Frame door frames when used in an opening with no transom. Horizontal material was getting included when it shouldn’t. Also fixed a related problem where transom glass was showing up in this same condition.
Fixed error when adding parts for Alternate Vertical material.
Fixed error when editing a row (by double clicking, or the Edit button) in the Final Glass Report.
Fixed bug where the wrong finish price was getting used when a part was manually added to the Final Parts Report.
Added “Copy of” to Door Frame Parts, Copy Frame feature so that you could tell more easily which frame was copied.
Modified Labor Frame Types window so that the “Door” type cannot be changed or deleted. This is used for all door glazing and will prevent door glazing labor from getting calculated if it is removed.
Made Frame Labor frame/elevation navigation tool visible in all three tabs, not just the first tab.
Changed caption in Stock List of Optimizer window to Net Cost instead of Total Cost. Also changed Cut Parts Finish column so that it can’t be altered in the grid.
Added a “Border” feature to the elevation drawing window. A border can be added by checking the “Show Border” box in the Layout tab in the drawing window.
Fixed error when adding parts for Alternate Vertical material.
Fixed error when editing a row (by double clicking, or the Edit button) in the Final Glass Report.
The Optimizer was improved so that jobs containing elevations with multiple quantities will reduce the bloating of the database. The Optimizing process is now much faster with these tyeps of jobs. A Quantity column was added to the cut pieces list in the Optimizer window to show the quantities of a given part number/cut size/piece label so that these parts are not listed hundreds of times in the top half of the window. It will still be necessary to "Compact" your vendor catalogs on a regular basis. The frequency of this maintenance depends on how much you use the software.
Fixed a bug in the Final Parts Report where editing information in a manually added part was not getting saved.
A new dimension was added to the left side of the elevation drawing that shows the height of the elevation from the top of the sub sill/flashing.
Made change to have the first Part Type in the list show up when manually adding a part to the Final Parts Report. The value cboPartType was not a valid choice as a default type.
Fixed a bug where glass width sizes where calculating wrong when a split was used along with left and/or right glass stops.
Fixed a bug where perimeter caulking was not getting calculated in punched opening elevations with only an entrance.
The feature of adding partial stock lengths to the bottom half of the Optimizer window was improved to show the optimization of these pieces in the Cut List, Metal Recap, and Metal Label reports. These manually added stock lengths will be optimized and saved even when the job is re-optimized.
Added a tool to the v15 Database Utility that allows you to update pricing from a newer catalog to an older catalog. You must have both catalogs listed in your v15 Vendor List, and you must select the correct vendors.
Fixed a bug in the Restore Jobs feature when trying to Restore a job from a different vendor folder into a vendor that did not have a backup file. If the vendor being restored To had a backup file already, the error would not occur.
With CRL/US Aluminum catalog, manually added parts are no zeroed out if they are not found by the USA server. Pricing must be manually entered for added parts. Otherwise, the parts should be added to the framing system.
Changed stock lengths listed in the Cut List report to show inches instead of feet. Did the same in the Final Metal Recap report and the metal cut labels.
Added code to update the job parts when the “Change Job Frames” tool is used in the Jobs window. Changes made to the master Parts List were not getting picked up when the same framing system was applied to a job already using it.
Added a prompt to the “Update Parts for Current Job” and “Edit Job Parts” tools in the Jobs window that will ask to redraw all elevations if miscellaneous part information has been changed for the current job. This redraw is required for entrance and miscellaneous parts to update in the Final Parts report.
Fixed a bug when a Split going to the head was added to a panel that had a lower height panel after it. The head piece was getting drawn at the lower level. Now it is correct.
Added more filtering to the door frame and door leaf selection windows when adding these to elevations. Also added a note to the top of those windows when a filter has been activated.
Fixed a problem with backing up jobs in the CRL – US Aluminum catalog.
Added the ability to add the word “Impact” (not case sensitive) to a door frame description so that the program will include door jamb filler material whenever the jamb is against the structure. Without this secret word, the program will not include door jamb filler material at a wall condition.
Added ability to change background color of drawing window to Grey and Blue as well as White and Black.
Removed Compact option from Vendor List utility drop down. Using the Repair Utility is the best way to compact vendors.
Fixed problem with the part number getting blanked out when you right click to go to the parts list while inside a system part form. If you choose to insert a part, it will now be added to a blank row in the list.
Changed wording of the “Phase Tip” button in the Optimizer window to match the wording in the Jobs window's drop down menu.
Fixed a bug where having a value in the “Add/Deduct for Vertical Mullion and Jambs” field of the Framing System Parts window would cause that amount to be applied to each vertical piece in elevations taller than one stock length. The fix for this only applies the value to the last cut piece in elevations this tall.
The Part Type value can now be changed in the Final Parts Report for non-stock length parts. This change will trickle through the Job Parts List, as well as the master Parts List. Any Stock length parts will need to be changed in the Parts List, and then updated for the current job using the Current Job Update Utilities menu in the Jobs window.
Added a dimension on the left side of the drawings showing the height of the opening from the top of the sub sill. This shows just left of the dimension from the ground to the top.
Fixed a bug concerning the "Add/Deduct for Vertical Mullions and Jambs" in the Framing System Parts window. The adjustment was only being made to the first vertical in a frame. In order to fix this, we now have the drawing show the adjusted size of these vertical members. Longer verticals will extend into the head or sill can to show the extra length. This setting is common in Can/Stick systems.
Added “WeatherSeal” as a part type. This will be added to all databases used by the 15.2 version.
The latest .33 file fixes a bug that must have existed before the .33 update. The problem occurred when glass with different types (ex. Tempered and Annealed) were the same size in an elevation, and had the same description. The glass was not separated by type in the Final Glass report, it was combined all as one type.
Fixed bug in initial release that was causing door package parts to be multiplied in punched openings. The latest .33 patch file solved this problem.
Cover Page files were added to complete the correct look and size of the cover page for shop drawings. Some changes were also made to the layout of the cover page to improve the way text wraps and is displayed.
Fixed a bug where making vertical #1 an Alternate Vertical would also make verticals 10-19 alternate in larger elevations.
Fixed a bug with door jamb filler material that was not getting added to the left jamb when a door was one lite away from another door.
The Hardware List button inside the Parts List will only be visible when Parts List is opened from the menu tree. Hardware List parts can only be added to the Final Parts report and not a framing system.
Fixed manually added glass problem where it was not getting copied when job is copied.
Added new fields (depth, favorites & allstops) to code that copies framing system data for new elevations, backing up, and copying elevations and jobs.
Fixed a problem with Misc parts showing up in the Final Parts Report for “punched” opening entrances. This was causing a problem with the CRL – USA web pricing feature because the vinyl parts would not have a package quantity.
The System Defaults notes that show up on the Markup report were not wrapping to multiple lines on the report. These notes were getting cut off on the report. This now works properly.
Fixed a rare bug when editing Fabrication labor for an elevation that would occur when exiting the form.
Fixed a null error that occurred when editing a part that was getting added to a system with the right click feature. This would only occur on a part that has a null value for a stock length
Fixed a bug in the Final Glass report when manually adding glass was the same size as another type of glass. This would result in the same sizes being combined as one type the next time you opened the glass report. This was happening even though they were two different types of glass.
Fixed PartType drop down list when adding a part to the Final Parts Report. The list was not sorted alphabetically.
Update Tips note in the Framing System Parts window. Since the Countinuous Head and Sill check boxes were removed at the bottom of the Frame Profile tab, the tips explain how to configure a Can/Stick type system.
Fixed a bug in Door Frame Parts calculations where the * (multiple) after a non stock length part would be applied to all parts in that column.
Fixed a bug where using a Continuous Sill Face Cover was changing the way a Continuous Sub Sill was cutting. The Sill Cover is now cut inside the wall jambs, and the Sub Sill can still extend under the jambs or be interrupted by jambs.
Fixed Sort Order drop down in Job Door Frame window that appears when adding an existing entrance to a new elevation in a job.
03-05-13: Fixed problem introduced in first release of v15.1.32. Door and Door Frame Parts data entry was putting cursor at beginning of line when entering each character for parts numbers.
Fixed problem with rake with the use of a head can. NOTE: The cut length of rake pieces is not exact. The measurements generated by the drawing are sufficient for estimating purposes, but should be checked against field measurements and adjusted in the Optimizer by editing the length of the rake cut pieces.
Fixed bugs in the Entrances window when adding new entrances, and when trying to edit or change a door or door frame for an existing entrance.
Made changes to prevent errors on certain computers when copying elevations. Not sure why problem would only occur on certain computers.
Fixed bug in the Entrances window that was preventing the Add New feature from working (02-14-13). The Entrances windows now shows door sizes and the hinge to help filter the list to find the entrance you want.
Fixed bug when trying to edit a door frame in the Entrances window on 02-14-13. Posted new update to all .31 files.
Fixed bug that prevented a New Entrance from being added to the Entrances window.
Added feature to Backup vendor files each weekday so that multiple backup files are available in case of a problem.
Fixed bug when a Head Can system was used in an elevation with multiple rakes. The rake was not drawn correctly and the cut size was off. Now the rakes are drawn correctly, but (WARNING) the cut size might not be exact. The cut sizes are good for estimation, but we recommend field measuring for actual cut sizes of these Head Cans in a raked elevation.
Fixed bugs in Final Parts Report that were preventing editing of manually added parts. All aspects of manually added parts can be edited at any time. Quantities of calculated parts can be changed in the form grid, however, these changes will be overwritten the next time you open the report. The only exception is with the new CRL - US Aluminum catalog.
Fixed bug when selecting a different Job backup file to restore from.
Changed Head Can and Head Cover splicing to occur at the actual stock length of the component being used. This was previously done at the middle of the nearest vertical.
Fixed problem with Jobs Backup feature crashing. A new BackupTemplate.mdb file is installed with the .31 update.
The new CRL - US Aluminum catalog web server pricing feature is available for all US Aluminum customers. A login account is required and the feature will give you instant pricing by clicking a "Submit to US Aluminum" button in the Final Parts report.
Fixed problem with Head and Sill Covers going full width of opening. These are now cut to butt up against the wall jambs.
Added the ability to edit calculated glass parts in the Final Glass report. A warning message will appear when you try to edit one of these parts.
Fixed bug when a door is added to the first and last panel of an elevation. The elevation width was changing by the width of the outside door jamb.
Fixed problem with horizontal covers coming out differently than head and sill covers. Now they all butt up against the wall and door jambs.
Added new reports to the Print Reports window. Now parts and glass reports can be printed to show Elevation specific parts and glass in a continuous report for the entire job. The Lineal Foot Report can also be printed from that window now.
Job Glass report is now sorted by Elevation Sort order rather than Elevation Name.
Added check boxes to the Optimizer window to automatically open the Final Parts and/or Final Glass Reports when exiting the Optimizer window.
Added a "Door Hand" column in the Final Parts Report to show which hand, single door parts are in the list.
There is a new feature for the newest CR Laurence/US Aluminum Catalog that allows you to electronically send your Final Parts Report to US Aluminum for pricing. This feature will return current calculated pricing and update your report on the fly! This feature will require you to have an account with CRL/US Aluminum so that you can log into their server when this feature is activated.
Fixed a problem with the Unequal Panel tab not updating the drawing correctly when the width of an unequal panel was edited in the list. NOTE: When editing this width and there is only one row in the list, you should click on another tab in the drawing window instead of clicking the Redraw button. Clicking Redraw without going to another tab will not save the change that you made to the width of the panel.
Added a new report for elevation parts for an entire job called "Glass by Job". This report groups the glass by elevation and continues through each elevation in the job.
Added a "Draw All Stops" option to the Framing System Parts window. This will automatically draw glass stops in every lite of an elevation. This feature can be checked both at the elevation and the global level for a certain framing system.
Added a column to the Final Parts Report to show the "Handing" of single door and frame parts. These parts were previously combined at the job level so that you couldn't tell which parts were for left or right handed entrances.
Fixed a bug in the Glass Stops tab that would not properly draw glass stops in entire panels when 0 to full height dimensions were entered.
Fixed bug in Final Summary Report when there is no glass in a Job. A "Null" value for the glass area would generate an error.
Fixed bug with the "Hide Export Messages" setting in the System Defaults window. When the program loaded, it was not finding the correct setting.
Made changes to the Final Parts Report so the printed version will mimic the displayed version. This includes any filters used and different sorts. The "Total" button can now be clicked to show the total value of a filtered list that is showing.
Changed Final Parts report to show the actual Part Types that are set in the master Parts List.
Changed Final Parts to show the total value of the "Filtered" list of parts when using the Filter Bar.
Added a Utility drop down menu to the Parts List and Jobs windows.
Added an option to Edit and Add items to the Part Type list that is assignable to each part in the Parts List. This can be found in the new Utility drop down in the Parts List window.
Added a "Favorites" column to the Framing Systems, Entrances, Door Frames, and Doors windows so that you can check your favorite items and sort the list by Favorites, so they always appear on top. Also added "Make this a Favorite" box to the various parts edit windows.
Add a "Clear Form Positions" button to the Repair Utility for those who have trouble opening forms after moving from having two monitors to one.
Corrected problem in Glazing Labor after new frame labor types are created. The new frames were not showing up in the "Time Per Man Settings" section.
Changed Rake? & MinOK? Columns in Final Glass window to show check boxes instead of Yes or No.
Added Door Width, Door Height, and Hinged columns to Entrances window to make it easier to select an entrance from the list.
Added "Copy of" to the Frame Type name when copying a labor frame in defaults window. List is sorted alphabetically, so look for the new frame beginning with "Copy".
Figure out why glass is removed from half the elevation when a split it added to a transom.
Ron - Make drawing update automatically when glass size feature is turned on.
Changed Quad Stop name to Smart Stop in the Export Options window of Print Reports form.
Add a dimension to drawings that shows actual length of verticals between receptors.
Made Vendor Name in Vendors window only editable by clicking Edit button. Vendor Name could easily get accidentally blanked out.
Added Single Door, Pair Door, Joints, Cuts, and Lineal Total columns to Elevations window.
Fixed bug in Markup report under the Job Info tab. The Estimator name information was not getting updated when a name was selected from the drop down list.
Added the ability to filter a list by looking at text in any part of a column's number or text, instead of just the beginning. This "Filter Bar" feature will let you filter your grid information more easily by searching for characters in the middle of a field.
Fixed bug in Markup Report where Marked up amount for Outside Costs was not getting added to the Grand Total of the report.
Added a DefaultID field to both the Doors and DoorFrames tables. This will help show the default ID from the Master lists when you are editing door/door frame information in an elevation.
Changed message after editing elevation framing system parts to a window that lets you check a box to not show the message any more. Previously this was a message that always appeared having to click OK to close it.
Added conditions to loading of program to reduce time of loading. (Checks for version of vendor database and master to bypass field check routines.)
Added automatic Redraw after editing Alternate Vertical parts. This was not happening automatically so unless you clicked the Redraw button, the correct parts would not show up.
Added a Centerline feature to the Layout tab that allows you to select specific vertical mullions and set a centerline dimension so that the verticals to the left will be equalized based on that centerline dimension.
The "Phases" button in the Jobs window was renamed to "Job From Elevations". Clicking this new button will use the selected Job and allow you to pick the elevations from that job to copy to a new job. The new job has the word "Phases" added to the front of the original name.
Corrected problem in Markup report where Outside Costs were not getting marked up. Also corrected check box for taxing markup amounts. This was not working correctly in .28 update. Also added notes to Markup window to better explain process.
Added Labor Defaults Frame Type List so users can copy frame types and rename these labor frames.
Corrected a few typos in the new SofPro license window. This license update can be used if there are problems with your current license, and will slowly be introduced to renewing customers.
Added a troubleshooting tool to the Elevations List window where if you Right Click on the blue background, a window will open showing elevations and frames that go with them. If there are two frames for an elevation, a Delete button will let you delete one. This is an advanced tool for Power Users.
The Arch Top feature has been improved so that former flat head material is removed and verticals run through to the arched head.
A new Labor List was added and the Labor Defaults window was changed to open this list when editing Frame Labor. The list will let you pick a labor frame type and edit it, and it will also let you copy a labor frame type to create a new type. The labor settings will be copied over and the new type will have to be renamed.
Fixed minor bug where Phases Tips button was not hiding when cut pieces grid was maximized.
Added a new Center Line feature for adding elevations with center line dimensions to allow for equal width panels between certain verticals.
Fixed Optimizer Export feature to work with RazorGage export option. Also corrected spelling in the Print Reports Export Options window.
Fixed error when trying to manually add glass to the Final Glass report.
Fixed problem where the data in the current drawing tab was not updating when the elevation was changed with the Previous and Next toolbar buttons.
Added feature to automatically recalc the Final Glass totals when the Print button is clicked. Also made sure the program will save the last value changed when the Print or Close button are clicked.
Fixed problem in Final Glass report where block sizes were not figuring correctly. Even sizes were also coming out two inches larger.
Fixed bug introduced in .28 update where Has SubSill box was always checked in the Framing System Parts window.
Fixed bug that was not allowing a rake to be added to more than 17 panels. Now the limit is 100.
Reformatted the Markup Report to add more detail to the sub total section. A bug was also fixed in this report that was introduced in the .28 update. The Grand Total was including a doubled amount of material from the marked up section. This new report makes it much easier to see all relevant calculations.
Fixed Add Parts window so that it defaults to Stock as the part type again. Also have it default to 1.75 for profile and 289 for length.
What's New with WinBidPro v15.1.28?
Added the Access Hardware Supply catalog to the Hardware List feature accessible through the Parts List and Final Parts windows.
Fixed problems with Detail Bubbles in the Shop Drawing feature. You will need to run the Repair Utility from your desktop or the WinBidPro program group, then click then "Fix Problem Opening Program" button. This will reset the User Settings, so will will have to check your System Defaults and Drawing Settings after this.
Fixed problem with Glass Area in Final Summary report not reflecting the correct glass size. Now total job glass matches that of the Final Glass Report.
A 3D feature was added to the drawing window by checking a box called "Make 3D file."
Fixed bug in Door Frame Parts and Door Parts windows where a part number with a multiple quantity (for example: *2) was getting applied to all parts for the same component.
Fixed an error in Glazing Settings window in the Labor Defaults menu when you try to open the Glazing Settings a second time.
Fixed a bug with raked tops in the Elevation Glass report where the block size was not showing one dimension correctly.
Fixed problem where door jamb filler material was not getting cut shorter when a bulkhead was next to the door.
Also fixed problem with sub sill/flashing material not cutting right when a bulkhead is used next to a door.
Fixed the way the Job Color displays so there are no blank spaces after the color name.
Added messages in the Final Parts Report to alert you when there are no stock parts showing, and when the elevations have been edited after the optimization has been done.
Changed the Other Material Tax rate to Outside Costs tax rate. The Other Material amount will be charged the same tax rate as the Stock Material, and the Total Outside Costs will be charged this rate.
Added a Don't Tax Markup check box to the Markup Report. This will allow you to only tax costs pricing and not the marked up amounts.
A big was fixed with the drawing bubble labels.
Added Page "1 of 3, 2 0f 3," etc. to the report forms.
Fixed an issue where changing framing systems for individual elevations was not updating the drawing. This would occur when multiple elevation frames were changed without leaving the Elevations window. The Optimizer still needs to be run before stock lengths can be calculated when a system is changed for an elevation.
Added a "Allow Edit" check box the the Glazing Labor settings to temporarily be able to change the Man count for glazing labor. This is a sensitive setting since an incorrect value will result in the wrong labor calculations.
Added code to update the Job's finish color when the color is changed in the Optimizer. This was a potential problem when the color was only changed in the Optimizer.
Added the Job Finish Color to the top of the Final Parts Window.
What's New with WinBidPro v15.1.27?
A Cover Page feature has been added to the menu tree under the Shop Drawing section of the tree. You can click the Cover Page link to generate/edit a cover page for the current job. You can then Print or Create a DWG of this page to combine with your shop drawings.
Made PartType list in the Add Part form sort alphabetically. This window is used when adding a part to the Parts List for a vendor.
Fixed problem with glass list in Glass tab not showing same order as that of the Glass Table. The sort order for these two lists should be identical.
Fixed bug where changing glass in Edit Job Glass window was not staying saved.
Added list of "Customers" to Add New/Edit window for Customer List.
Added a check box to hide the warning that appears when changing a group of parts in the Parts List window.
A bug was fixed in the Markup report where Tax on Labor was not getting calculated.
Added a Glass Area total to the Final Summary Screen and Report.
Added an export to GTS feature in the Final Labor Report window.
Fixed how the Block Square Footage was shown in the Detailed Elevation Glass Report. It will now only show 2 decimal places.
Fix a possible error if a Null value is found in a part price in the Final Parts Report.
Fixed problem with "*" multiple quantity feature when used with Alternate Vertical parts. The multiples were not getting calculated.
Fixed bug in calculating horizontal vinyl. Program was calculating too much gasket material when it was applied to horizontals.
Added validation to the Elevation Quantity field in the Layout tab of the drawing window. Valid quantities are 1-100. Errors can occur if higher quantities are accidentally entered.
Added condition to prevent "Error 53" when closing WinBidPro on Windows XP machines. If TaskKill.exe is not found, it won't try to run it.
Fixed Vendor Tools drop down in Vendors window. It was showing up blank instead of "Vendor Tools".
Fixed problem with Final Parts Report where checking "Package Price" box was not automatically recalculating totals on the report. This is now automatic instead of having to click the total button or reload the form.
Fixed problem where Final Parts Report with "Package Price" printed in "Portrait" mode was not showing the correct totals.
Fixed a bug when 9 Vertical Splice points were used. The 9th point would generate an error. This should work fine now.
Fixed bug when changing the "Type" of Horizontal in list inside the "Horz" tab of the drawing window. If an alternate horizontal Type has a profile of 0, the program will resort to using the main horizontal profile. Horizontal profiles can changed with the "Edit Elev Frame Sys" button.
Fixed bug with Horizontal Face Cover not showing up unless there was a Sill Cover part entered.
What's New with WinBidPro v15.1.26?
Added code to let you filter with the Insulated column in the Glass table and Glass tab.
Added Hardware List form and button to Parts List window. Added "Add Hardware" button to Final Parts report.
Added PackageQty field to Add New feature in Final Parts report. When a new part is added to the final parts report, the package quantity will be added as well.
Added code to update the grid when the Price by Package Qty box is checked. Before it would only update when the form was opened.
Added feature in Final Parts Report to show $0 prices in Red.
Combined the two glazing labor windows into one. Now the Glass Size to Men and the Minutes for Men windows are combined into the Glazing Settings window.
Some bugs were fixed in the Backup and Restore Jobs feature of the program. There should be no errors when backing up and restoring.
Added feature to use the Enter key as well as the Tab key to move between fields when entering drawings in the drawing tabs.
August 2nd build fixed a problem with the "Renew Now" button not working in the Subscription Status window.
Fixed bug when Backup up jobs to a vendor which already had a backup file.
Fixed bug that prevented the Elevation Glass Report from opening.
Fixed bug in Final Parts Report that prevented the Package Pricing feature from working correctly. This was a new feature added in the v15.1.24 update.
Added a simple wrapping feature for the framing system name on the drawing. Based on number of panels and number of characters in the description.
Added check for multiple framing systems for a given elevation. This can cause extra parts to show up in the optimizer. User will be prompted in the Edit Elev Frame Sys window, and the extra system will be removed.
Added "Portrait Format" check boxes to both Final Parts and Final Glass Reports. This allows printing the older Portrait sized reports. However, this smaller format will not provide the new information that is on the Landscape reports.
What's New with WinBidPro v15.1.24?
Fixed problem with high to low rake and the right jamb being too high.
Fixed bug with Panel Height feature. Verticals and jamb would be too long when different height panels were set in an elevation.
Added a glass thickness column and MinSqrFt to glass reports.
Fixed bug in Rounding of panel widths in conjunction with overall frame size.
Optimizer was not using the stock length from the Job Parts table, it was using the master parts table stock length. This was corrected so that when the user changes the stock length in the Job Parts window, the new stock length is used.
Added a feature to the DrawingSettings window to toggle the output of a System Detail file when the Shop Drawings link is clicked. This is helpful when you only want to show the System details, and not the system AND the individual part details. Poor scaling sized would result when all types are displayed.

Improved the "Change Frame" feature in the Jobs window so that each elevation in the job is automatically redrawn when the framing system is changed for the entire job. This ensures that the new parts are included from the new framing system, and the old parts are not. NOTE: You will still need to click the "Get Elevation Parts" button in the Optimizer window and then click Optimize to figure the new stock length counts!
When selecting a vendor to work with, the backup process should only occur once a day. NOTE: You may need to click the Vendor Tools option at the top of the Vendors window, and select "Compact a Vendor File" once a week or so you heavily use a specific vendor.

Fixes in v15.1.16
WinBidPro will now Backup your vendor database whenever you open it. This will occur once a day, so you will find backup files in your vendor folder with the day of the week at the end of the file name.
