Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issue where curved lines drawn quickly with pen tablet would appear segmented and dented with low-end video cards.
  • Fixed issue where overwriting a Storyboard Packed File (.sbpz) when splitting or extracting the current project would delete the target project's parent directory.
  • Fixed a potential crash when exporting Harmony scenes with burn-in options enabled.
  • Fixed a crash caused by an error message occurring when the computer wakes from sleep mode.
  • Fixed a randomly occurring crash when animating a layer.
  • Fixed a memory leak that occurred when deleting panels while their thumbnails were about to be generated.
  • Fixed issue where layers in imported Photoshop Document (.psd) files would be ignored if their opacity was below 10%.
  • Fixed an issue where flipping a scene would not work if the scene contained a shared drawing and an even number of panels.
  • Fixed issue where a shared drawing would be flipped all across the project when flipping a scene containing the shared drawing. Now, a shared drawing that is in a scene that gets flipped will be unlinked from the original drawing and linked to a flipped version of the shared drawing, which is also shared.
  • Fixed issue where pen tablet input would be offset when working with several monitors set to different scaling factors on Windows.
  • Fixed issue where movie files exported with the Export Movie dialog would have an extra frame if the project's frame rate was set to 23.976 frames per second.
  • Fixed issue where burn-in would sometimes not appear in exported Harmony scenes.
  • Fixed issue where projects split or extracted in Storyboard Packed File (.sbpz) format would have the project title extractproject_temp.
  • Made the Split Project and Extract Project dialog create projects in the current project's format (.sboard or .sbpz) by default.
  • Fixed issue preventing from selecting layers in very short panels when making a selection of layers from multiple panels.
  • Fixed issue where, when exporting a PDF with one panel per page, some panels got expanded even if the Expand Panel option is disabled.
  • Fixed issue where camera framing would be wrong when exporting a project in 16 field for conformation.
