|The ‘Workspace Library is empty’ message was shown in the Components panel after refreshing if a search keyword is entered.
|The Edit command was not accessible in the Components panel when not connected to an Altium 365 Workspace.
|Renaming and committing a file on one PC when already open on a second, would result in the document being removed from the project when committed from the latter.
|It was not possible to place a Comment on a managed schematic sheet in Altium NEXUS. (BC:17869)

|In some cases, self-intersecting regions were created when adding teardrops to a PCB.
|Self-intersecting regions were being exported to ODB++.
|When the PCB.IPC4761Support advanced option is enabled, and there is a certain combination of columns enabled in the Drill Table defaults, and the Drill Table defaults are edited to include certain additional columns, those columns could become repeated in the table.
|A pad with the Counterhole option enabled could result in that pad disconnecting from inner layer polygons when the Counterhole size approached the pad size.

|The BoardOutlineClearance rule did not display the edge types for a rigid-flex board.
|It was not possible to select any components on a particular PCB document due to a regression involving ordinate dimensions that included several points of measurement.
|Drill layers enabled for plotting in the older Gerber/Gerber X2 setup dialogs (pre-Altium NEXUS 22.4) would all be disabled when using the new unified Gerber/Gerber X2 setup dialogs (available from Altium NEXUS 22.4 by enabling the UI.Unification.GerberDialog option in the Advanced Settings dialog).
|The settings for mechanical layers added to plots in the old Gerber Setup dialog were not retained when those Gerber settings were opened in the new Gerber Setup dialog.
|There was a mismatch in Gerber extensions vs actual layer ordering when generating Gerber/Gerber X2 output using the new unified Gerber/Gerber X2 dialogs (enabled by the UI.Unification.GerberDialog option in the Advanced Settings dialog) and with the output format set to 'filename.* (gtl, gbl, gto,...)'. (BC:18411)

|An exception would occur when importing a specific PADS PCB file.
|The Allegro importer would sometimes incorrectly create a region object in the same shape and location as a polygon.

|There was an issue with multi-part components where, for floating nodes, a ? was entered into the simulation netlist instead of a new net.
|It was not possible to stop a running sweep-type simulation at any stage in the sweep. instead, the simulation would stop only after completing the full number of swept outputs.

|Outline detection was sometimes failing when the shape included a combination of arcs and tracks.
|After dragging and dropping a 3D model from the Explorer panel onto a footprint open for editing, and then placing a pad, a warning that the component could not be saved because a command was already active would appear when attempting to save. This no longer occurs. (BC:17421)
|The PCB.ComponentSelection advanced option was not being applied, component selection was always using the contents of the Courtyard layer type.
|When the PCB.ComponentSelection advanced option was set to mode 2, only the contents of the Courtyard layer type were being used for selection, instead of Courtyard + 3D Body Objects + Silk + Copper layers.
|The Pin Swapping option for routing has been disabled by default and can be enabled during each new session of Altium NEXUS.
|A new option to 'Merge regions and pads inside Footprint' has been added to the Gerber Setup dialogs. With this option enabled, regions within a footprint will be merged with pads during generation of Gerber outputs.
|Certain custom scale values would display incorrectly.

Build: 11 Date: 16 March 2022
|When attempting to change multiple selected components via the Properties panel, if a different library is selected as the Source, the Component Source dialog appears.

|While attempting to place a linked 3D STEP model via the Place > Extruded 3D Body command, the model would automatically switch to the Embedded mode. (BC:13236). This ticket also corrected an issue where, if changes were made to a STEP model that was linked to a PCB, when that PCB was reopened and the linked model automatically updated, the model location and orientation were not correctly maintained, resulting in the linked model moving. (BC:7034)
|Performing a 3D measurement between a 3D object and the board surface or board edge, reported a distance of zero.
|The Footprint Comparison Report would give a false failure on a component if: the component had been rotated, and the component included an extruded 3D Body object with an arc in its outline.

|On-site Workspaces (Concord Pro and NEXUS Server) did not display the Project History correctly.
|Switching between Workspaces or signing out of a Workspace would result in the software disconnecting from the Private License Server.
|To reduce potential for confusion when using the Soft Locks feature, if a user has made changes to a document more than two days ago, a second user opening the same document will not see that the first user is 'editing' the document, but rather a clearer state of '
|User ranking of an existing Part Choice was not being saved.
|It was not possible to navigate through the different project Comment dialog options (such as the list of suggested email recipients), using the keyboard.
|A project that has a broken ProjectGUID did not result in the "Fix Version control link" dialog opening, as it should have.
|When there was a remote VCS repository connected to a local repository (which does not require authorization), the software would still prompt for authorization credentials when a VCS action was performed. (BC:17786)
|If a component included a ranked Part Choice, attempting to remove another Part Choice would remove that one and the Part Choice below it.
|With the 'Always Drag' option disabled, there were rare cases where some wires would disappear after moving a selection of circuitry. (BC:17756)
|The 'μ' character is now supported as the SPICE suffix 'u' =1e-6.

|Embedded graphics in a schematic were not able to be presented in generated PDF output, causing an error in Acrobat Reader.
|With the 'Optimize Wires & Buses' option enabled (on the Schematic - General page of the Preferences dialog) some wire vertices would stay anchored when performing a second drag of a selection.
|Using formulas on a schematic involving the 'abs' and 'round' functions resulted in #NAME? being displayed, rather than the actual result of the functions.

|Blind, buried, and microvias pasted from another PCB design were not recognized by the ODB++ Setup dialog. (BC:16347)
|During ODB++ output generation, connected mid-layer pads could be removed if they were inside a keepout region and the "Include unconnected mid-Layer pads" option was disabled. (BC:17496)
|Unrouted Net Constraint violations for non-plated pads were missing location detail in the Messages panel and the PCB Rules and Violations panel.
|Keepout objects placed in a PCB design can now be shown in a panelized embedded board array. Note that this feature provides a visual representation of the Keepout layer, copper objects placed on the Embedded Board Array currently do not respect keepouts placed in the source PCB.
|Removing existing teardrops did not always remove the teardrops from vias. (BC:17185)
