Version 24.5.2 HotFix 1

Build: 23 Date: 22 May 2024

Schematic
51102 Using a partially transparent PNG-format image (for a logo, for example) would result in that image missing in generated Smart PDF output. (BC:18937, BC:20094)
58127 The 'R' accelerator key was incorrectly assigned to two commands on the Schematic editor's main Design menu ('Constraint Manager' and 'Create Sheet From Sheet Symbol'). (BC:22948)
59784 In some cases, an Access Violation (at address 0000000145FA1675 in module "AdvSch.dll") would be encountered.
60185 The ability to access Font Settings for a placed parameter set, through the Parameter Set dialog, would stop working.
60233 The 'Supply Nets' rule is now automatically added to each power net (net containing a power port or assigned Supply Nets parameter through a parameter set) during compilation.
PCB
55864 For a specific and complex PCB, it took a noticeably long time to delete a polygon pour, either from within the design space itself or from within the Polygon Pour Manager.
57426 Enhanced ODB++ generation, adding support for v7.0 and v8.1 (with rigid-flex layer subtypes) formats and a fix for backdrills, stopping in previous layer to that defined in LSM. (BC:17563)
58093 Added measures to prevent inadvertent mirroring of a footprint along its X/Y axes to Health Check Monitor, Footprint Comparison report and Update from Libraries tool. (BC:15849, I:19497)
58548 In some cases when generating ODB++ fabrication data, an EList error "Duplicates not allowed" would be encountered.
60210 For generated Board Stack Reports, the decimal symbol was missing (and no. of decimal places incorrect) for some columns. (BC:22485)
60258 Having been found, in some cases, to cause detrimental results, the 'Polygons on Planes' feature has been removed, along with its associated option (PCB.SplitPlanes.Pouring).
60270 For a specific PCB, the error "External component has thrown an exception" would be encountered when attempting to export into Ansys EDB format using the Ansys EDB Exporter.
60597 After loading a previously saved layer stackup file (with an added Impedance Profile), it was not possible to save it to the PCB (the 'Save to PCB' control was grayed-out). (BC:23094)
60621 In some cases, when the PCB editor was building connection lines for unrouted nets in relation to a placed hatched polygon pour, an Access Violation would be encountered.
60668 The PCB Layout Replication command will now be disabled on menus if no components are selected.
PCB CoDesign
59776 Added the ability to 'Update From Server' from within the PCB CoDesign panel, for a local PCB that is out of date compared to the latest revision in the connected Workspace.
59794 Changed the color of the notification banner that appears at the bottom of the design space.

59952 After using the Search field, all defined classes were being expanded automatically.
60064 After making changes to the constraints for a Workspace project (from the PCB) and saving to the Workspace, a message about external file PCBDoc.CstrDoc was encountered. (BC:22912)
60240 Summary information now provided when importing directives. An imported directive now colored blue. When selected, constraint data from the Constraint Manager is displayed (Properties panel).
60298 When defining widths by layer for a selected entity in the Physical view (accessed from PCB), rows for layers not selected in a chosen Impedance Profile will now be hidden.
60441 Within the Physical view, the results of an applied search would be reset after creating a new Net Class.
Draftsman
51268 For a specific PCBDwf document, editing notes but closing without saving, would lead to an error being encountered.
59216 In some cases when working with multiple sheets in a Draftsman document, the error "Unable to add null value to collection" would be encountered.
60886 When generating Draftsman output through an OutJob, the chosen single variant was being ignored when the Data Source was set to 'All Draftsman Documents'. (BC:23250)

60168 Added a new parameter 'Include Cut' to the wire object, allowing to control its inclusion into a Wiring List placed in a Harness Draftsman document.
60195 Rotating and underlining any text strings on the Wiring Diagram or Layout Drawing would cause filled circles to appear within the corresponding objects in the Harness Draftsman document.
61077 Changes to Twist/Shield designators (Wiring Diagram) and Connection Point designators (Layout Drawing) were being reset after saving and reopening the documents. Their position and visibility were also affected. In addition, the Bundle Length parameter (Layout Drawing) was being reset to its default position.

59777 An 'Update from Server' control now appears next to the project name in the Projects panel, when there are only outdated files in that project.
59793 'Push was rejected' dialog no longer appears when saving local changes to the Workspace with conflict. Outdated files are now auto-updated, then the Save to Server dialog displayed.
59899 If attempting to 'Save to Server' when conflicts still exist, the new 'Action Required' information dialog will be presented, listing the conflicting file(s) that need resolution.
59900 Clicking 'Save to Server' now pulls actual changes from the Workspace. When conflicts in the project would cause actual Git conflicts, file state becomes ‘Conflict Detected’ (marked with double red '!!').
59901 The context menu (Projects panel) available when file conflicts have been detected has been updated with more focused actions that can be performed, depending on the type of document.
60038 Added 'Open Remote Document Version' command (Projects panel VCS context menu) for a conflicting document. Opens latest document revision from connected Workspace in a new document tab.
60059 Original Library Link was incorrect in Variant Management dialog if connected Workspace had a dot char in its name, leading to wrong library dialog when using 'Update Values From Library'.
60180 After releasing content to a connected Workspace, the Components and Explorer panels would display the 'Release Date' in local time instead of UTC time.
60194 In a specific case and with non-default Preferences, attempting to create/open/edit/clone a component template would result in a 'Null reference' exception being encountered.
60206 Enhanced the 'Use Component Data' dialog with separate tabs for Parameters, Models and Datasheets. Data from SE/Z2Data, if requested, is listed first in each case.
60223 In some cases when creating a new Workspace component, the ID would be incorrectly generated, freeze during generation, or not be generated at all.
60235 For a Workspace component placed on a schematic, incorrect parameters were being displayed when viewing a variant (alternate part) for which those component parameters did not exist. (BC:22845)
60262 When opening a specific Workspace project, duplicated instances of the Workspace were being presented in the Projects panel.
60316 For a specific design (and while connected to a Workspace), the error "Failed to pull data" would be encountered when refreshing the project's ActiveBOM document. (BC:21509)

60401 When right-clicking on the entry for a Workspace project in the Projects panel, duplicate workflow requests were being sent to the connected Workspace.
60423 When making a project available in a connected Workspace and its description was 256 characters, the subsequent error message did not state description length as being the error. (BC:23046)
60480 It was not possible to place any component manufactured by Wurth Electronics, from the Manufacturer Part Search panel directly into the active PCB document.
60481 With the ComponentSearch.UseForModelsBrowsing option enabled, a footprint selected for use in the Model Search dialog was not being added to the Workspace component being created.
60483 It was not possible to work with a Database Library that was connected to a 'split' MS Access database (split into front-end and back-end components).
60575 In a specific case, attempting to access the Library Importer, would result in the error "Unable to cast COM object of type 'System._ComObject'...".
60614 Added the ability to resize the 'Use Component Data' dialog. In addition, the 'Resulting Value' column now supports text wrapping.
60721 When opening the Variant Manager for a specific PCB design project, the error "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: collection" would be encountered.
60741 In some cases when releasing a single, new component to a connected Workspace using the Component editor, the error "Cannot find naming scheme" would be encountered.
60742 When editing a variant of a multi-channel design, an error would be encountered when setting the same part as 'Not Fitted' in more than one channel. (I:23282)
60832 Designator duplicates for components with different alternates would result in the error "An item with the same key has already been added", when opening the Variant Manager.
60908 With SiliconExpert enabled for the connected Workspace, opening a project's ActiveBOM document for the first time would fetch all SE data for components, using up quota.
Import/Export

59825 After creating an advanced clearance rule, setting a value for the Copper to Copper cell, saving and reopening, additional columns were being added (Fill, Poly, Region) with that value.
59862 Added indication of sync status between a constraint in the Constraint Manager and equivalent defined in a directive, with the ability to import constraint data from a directive once only.
Draftsman
30590 Added support for placing a BOM Table into a manufacturing drawing created for a PCB design project (*.PCBDwf), presenting only those components that are Not Fitted. (I:7978)
CAMtastic
59817 After saving a document in a version of Altium Designer >= 24.1, opening it in a version of Altium Designer < 24.1 would result in an empty document. (BC:22784)
Platform
60182 In some cases, Altium Designer would 'freeze' when attempting to install the 'TASKING Pin Mapper provider' extension.
Data Management
58870 In a specific case with many projects opened in the Projects panel, noticeable delays were experienced due to all projects periodically refreshing VCS status and collaborator notifications.
59161 A new 'loading' indicator is now presented whenever (and wherever) you click to 'Get SiliconExpert Advanced Part Data'.

59699 Added support for latest MS Access database file format (.accdb) when using Database to Workspace component synchronization (*.CmpSync) and part supplier synchronization (*.PrtSync).
59779 In some cases when opening components from the Explorer panel's Library Health view, the error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" would be encountered.
59828 For a Workspace content type that can be directly edited, the Name of the item being created, cloned or edited is now shown, rather than its Item-Revision ID.
59932 The revision information for templates listed in the Create Project dialog was no longer being displayed.
59934 The real value for the YTEOL parameter is now presented in all places where SiliconExpert data is presented.
59939 In some cases when editing a Workspace component in Batch Component Editing mode, an exception would occur when attempting to add a part choice 'By MPN'.

60033 The Component Template Inheritance feature is now officially made Public with this release.
60089 For a specific manufacturer part, the value displayed for its SiliconExpert YTEOL parameter in the ActiveBOM was incorrect compared to that displayed in the Manufacturer Part Search panel.
Import/Export
58714 When importing a specific Zuken CR-5000 PCB, the board outline was missing from the generated PcbDoc.
59930 Added the ability to skip the inclusion of Pad/Via Template names when importing an Xpedition library file.
60163 For a specific imported OrCAD design, some graphical elements around components (e.g. rectangles and circles) were missing on the generated schematic sheets.

Harness Design
56164 The Wiring List and Connection Table in a Harness Draftsman document would not display the wire color in the Color column, if the color name had been specified using a hexadecimal value.
57193 In some cases, enabling/disabling the visibility of wire parameters in the Wiring Diagram would not work correctly for older Harness design projects.
57407 Layout Labels used in the Layout Drawing are now treated as components in the BOM, with support for part choices and grouping.
57543 Layout Labels in a Layout Drawing can now be rotated using either the Spacebar or the Rotation field in the Properties panel.
57807 Placing a Harness Wiring Component into the Wiring Diagram from the Explorer panel using drag-and-drop was not working correctly, while the right-click Place command was non-functional.
57859 Added extra data columns to the Connection Table (Cable, Crimp, ToPin, ToPart) and Wiring List (Cable, FromCrimp, ToCrimp) objects in the Harness Draftsman document.  (I:22177)
57866 When updating a harness component on the Layout Drawing to the latest revision (in the connected Workspace Library), its orientation would be changed.
57867 When updating a harness component on the Layout Drawing to the latest revision (in the connected Workspace Library), the drawing order (Z-axis) of covering objects would be changed.
57883 Copy, Cut and Paste features were not working in the Harness Wiring Model editor.
57968 In the Layout Drawing, it is now possible to split cable wires at the end of a bundle.
Platform
56676 Added support for use of long paths, where <filepath>+<filename> is greater than 256 characters (requires long path support to be first enabled for Windows). (BC:20970, BC:21080, I:10475)
57740 In some cases when preparing a project for release using the Project Releaser, GDI handle usage would become very high and sometimes lead to Altium Designer crashing.
57774 In some cases, the error "System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast COM object of type "System.__ComObject"..." would be encountered.
Data Management
57726 It was not possible to commit modifications to a free SchLib/PCBLib associated with an SVN Database Library, using the Storage Manager panel. (BC:18693)
57834 Accessing the Library Health view within the Explorer panel would result in the session for the Tasklist panel being terminated.
57856 Improved error message text when attempting to place a Workspace Library component that has no referenced schematic symbol.
57892 For a specific design repository, attempting to migrate constituent projects 'with history' would result in failure.
57954 Adding the .PrjPcb file to its own project and then right-clicking on the main project entry in the Projects panel, would cause Altium Designer to crash and close. (BC:21967)
57991 In the Open Project dialog, changes made to columns (ordering, visibility) were not being stored, instead reverting back to defaults after a restart of the software. (BC:22286)
57995 When Downloading Sources for a previous commit of a Workspace project (from the project's history view) that historical commit would not be opened in the Projects panel. (BC:22024)
58176 For a specific PCB design project, Altium Designer would 'freeze' when opening the project's ActiveBOM document.
58180 When saving defined variants in the new Variant Manager, the data in the generated .txt file was not consistent with the view of the data in the Variant Manager.
58239 Clicking Save to Server on a specific file (in the Projects panel) will now select only that file in the Save to Server dialog.
58251 When saving a Git-controlled project to the connected Workspace, conflicted items are now always enabled for committal (and can't be disabled).
58285 After transferring ownership of a component, its history would incorrectly show the new owner as the Creator of that component.
58315 When re-releasing a symbol to a connected Workspace, the name of the Workspace was not presented correctly in the listing of components related to that symbol.
58376 In some cases when working with the Components panel, the error "System.InvalidCastException: Specified cast is not valid" would be encountered.
Import/Export
57381 xDX Designer Importer has been enhanced to better handle import of multi-part symbols, provide symbol-only import functionality and generate part-symbol and pin mapping data in CSV format.
57763 When importing an Xpedition design, Placement Outlines can now be imported as primitives on the Placement Outline layer and also as extruded bodies on Top/Bottom 3D Body assembly layers.
57932 When importing an Xpedition design, it is now possible to choose the layer from which to create extruded body shapes, storing them on the Top/Bottom 3D Body assembly layers.
58031 For a specific imported OrCAD design, the pin names for components on the generated schematic sheets were rotated.
58119 xDX Designer Importer has been further enhanced to support datasheet information, storing as a reference (ComponentLinknDescription/ComponentLinknURL parameters) in the resulting CSV file.
Circuit Simulation
57909 In some cases when working with the Simulation Viewer, the error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" would be encountered.
58035 Output currents for P-Channel transistors (BJT, JFET, MOSFET, MESFET) are now treated as inflow currents, making them consistent with N-Channel transistors.
Ansys CoDesigner
52948 Added support for collaborative design (CoDesign) between the ECAD (Altium Designer) and Simulation (Ansys Electronics Desktop (AEDT)) domains.
Power Analyzer by Keysight
58001 Added support for assigning currents for multiple nets on the same component, for different series elements. (BC:22388)
