Highlights of Service Pack V6.5 – 0170

In Lists with a tree view (e.g. Structure Editor) levels can be folded/unfolded with a mouse click (RP-5420)

This practical new feature enables the user to fold/unfold levels in a list more quickly and precisely using the keyboard and the mouse:

  • Ctrl + left-click: folds/unfolds entire level
  • Ctrl + Shift + left-click: folds/unfolds the element plus its neighbours


Import | Import characteristics: new option to merge system elements upon import (RP-5477)

 When importing data from an Excel file, it is now possible to merge elements with the same name.

The toolbar of the Input collector now contains an icon which enables the user to display/close the suggestion list taskpane.


Summary Functions and Placeholder: two new placeholders “MAXDATE” and “MAXRPN” (RP-4914)

Maintenance customers only:

1. MAXRPN: determines the maximum RPN from the last completed revision state (highest risk)

2. MAXDATE: determines the deadline furthest in the future from the last rated revision state (i.e. when the project is expected to be completed).
