eVSM v11.42 - 29-Oct-2020

  • Sped up Highlight Sets tool considerably by utilizing product cache data
  • Modified Auto Seq button to automatically recognize connections to Product Set Centers, and automatically link from the last non-set center in the selection. This speeds up sequencing so it can be done in a single multi-selection and button click
  • Fixed automatic notice for map clean, which was appearing on non-eVSM Visio files
  • Modified licensing code to check for updated Mix activation keys and automatically register them, when a Mix license gets renewed
  • Made a fix to the Error dialog, which was having problems copying to the clipboard on many PC's
