This is a minor release of SimLab Composer that does the following:
1- Reduces initial memory usage of SimLab Composer
2- Reduces the sim file size in some cases
3- Updates translations (Japanese, Chinese, German, Spanish, and Korean)
4- Better preview images in the material library
5- Improves visual appearance of the progress bar

It appears that this version generates my WebGL page much quicker.

Hate to be negative but I am not the biggest fan of the progress bar in this particular situation. Will continue with other testing though.............. :D

Let me be a little more specific. The problem I have is that the text is white and I am not sure of the other features because I cannot see the progress bar very well.

I rather like the Animated Progress.. However, I would like to see one on the VR Viewer on Desktop Mode.. At the moment it black after it opens for about 30 seconds, and then the little rainbow circle appears for another minute and then a few more seconds it will open.. There needs to be progress bar on this.. Partially for big VR projects..

I wish I could say that the newest version has fixed many of my issues but it hasn't... I can only do what the software allows me to do.. Until the issues are fixed, I cannot upload to the pubic Showroom..

With the 8.2.2 update, I am noticing that as soon as I apply a material to an object, the material icon disappears in the material dialog box. Is anyone else seeing that?

BTW: A very dumb question.

If I apply a material but then modify it for a given object and then save the model it asks if I want to save the modification. If I say yes, does it then save that for future models or does it just save it for that model?

Seems to in the past, if I said yes, then it now modifies that material for everything going forward. If that is true, how do I save it as a new material without modifying the original material?

Hi.. Actually, the disappearing materials in the Library is not a new thing.. I noticed that a few versions ago... Thought it was something I was doing wrong....

Material icons disappearing a lot in version 8.2.2

Here is a screen shot that might help show the problem
8-2-2 Material Icons.PNG

Notice where the icons are missing. The icon in the material dialog box disappears every time I apply a material to an object in the model. If I then modify the material and try to save it is my own material the icon does not show up in the material library.

There are times now when I have lost all of the icons in the material library being shown as well.

I have disappearing icons too. Haven’t downloaded 8.2.3 yet. Hopefully fixes.

I just downloaded 8.2.3 and in my tests so far, it appears the problem was fixed. :D

I wish SimLab would notify us when new versions are available. :)
