Update All Symbol References in One Easy Step
We’ve made several usability improvements to help you develop a more efficient process when working with complex documents. When updating a symbol, CoTherm now finds all references to the symbol and automatically changes each reference to use the new symbol. Information on which items were changed is printed to the Messages window for clarity. This one-step operation ensures that your document remains correctly linked.
Export CSV Results in Star-CCM+ Export Tasks
When working with Star-CCM+ Export tasks, you can now export the results in a .csv file format. The type of file created is determined by the extension of the convection export file - .csv will export a CSV file and .neu/.ntl will export a patran neutral file as in previous versions. CSV is now the default for all process examples, which enables a more efficient workflow when working with Star-CCM+.
Customize Message Colors Based on Associated Tool or Task
For any tool, task, or sub-process, you can associate a color with that particular item. Any message reported from that item will then appear in that color within the Messages window. This gives greater flexibility in making the Messages output easier to read, particularly for processes with multiple sub-process running concurrently and generating interleaved messages.
Drag & Drop into a Sub-Process
We’ve added the ability to select multiple resources and tasks, drag them onto the canvas icon for the sub-process and they will be seamlessly moved into the sub-process. This allows the same rapid reorganization capability as previously provided via cut and paste, but now can be accomplished with a single mouse operation.
Automatically Update Resources in Sub-Process
When importing a sub-process with a global resource that has the same name or symbol as another resource, you now have the ability to choose how to move forward. Automatically update the imported or existing resources to resolve the conflict, and all corresponding references will be updated so that all items are linked to the correct global resource. Once you make your choice of which resources to modify, CoTherm will automatically make the update for you and import the sub-process.
