  • Improved High DPI support for the Advance Steel 2020 User Interface: This version of Advance Steel 2020 includes a set of user interface fixes to the overall experience when using a high DPI setting, with a high-resolution monitor (2K, 4K, etc.). The improvements include automatic scaling for dialogs to correctly show text and buttons.
  • Fixed an issue with the ANZ Bridging dialog that could not be properly used when setting a high display DPI .
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when using the numbering command and editing xrefs.
  • Fixed an issue with the quick connection – Base Plate settings dialog that would not correctly show the Anchor length field.
  • Corrected an issue that caused various standard steel connections to have, by default, an empty Design module field in Joint Design, in the connection properties dialog.
  • Corrected the behavior of the “Delete row” option from Table Editor in Management Tools so that the row is deleted from the respective table as soon as the option is used.
  • Corrected the way the Table Editor in Management Tools shows the content of the Color drop-down from the ApprovalStatus table in the AstorCurrentAddin database.
  • Fixed an inconsistent display for the material inside the element properties dialog when switching between different profiles configured with a default assigned material , directly from the content definition database.
  • Fixed an issue with the migration tool that was not properly identifying changes in some out of the box profiles like Kingspan Insulated Roof Systems, Sadef Pfette, Sadef WR, Sadef Z, and VLB hot-rolled.
  • Fixed the “Create list field” command for creating a new BoM on drawing template cell.
  • Restored the preview picture in the Connection Vault for the Bolt Cage connection.
  • Updated the SADEF profiles geometrical properties according to producer catalog.
  • Updated sectional values for Lindab profiles.


  • New Customization Options for the Cut Symbol Template: The cut symbol template has several new features to help with customization, including new tokens, support for user text, text formatting using the template text style, and text color control from the template file. See Customize the Cut Symbol Text.
  • New Cut Symbol Alignment Command: A new command is available in the ribbon. The command aligns all cut symbols from one side, using a reference symbol. This will ease the cut symbol arrangement, and ensure that the cut symbols will no longer move during drawing update. See Align Cut Symbols on Drawings.
  • Dedicated defaults for configuring the cut symbol template: The existing two defaults that allow the setup of cut symbol template for up and down symbols were split to allow specific customization on each different type of detail drawings that can contain cut symbols. See Setup the Cut Symbol Resource File.
  • Insert Cut Symbols in General Arrangement Drawings: The process of inserting cut symbols on general arrangement drawings when creating manual cuts was changed. Advance Steel 2020 now uses the points used to define the cut view size as insertion points for the symbols. The two points were already used to define the cut view size box, but the cut symbols were inserted using the “Assembly drawing” rules. The previous process would often cause Advance Steel 2020 to insert the points in the middle of the drawing.
  • Cut view titles on general arrangement views no longer reset during update: Now, you can manually modify the cut view title for manual cuts created on general arrangement views (Plan view, Anchor plan, Elevation, etc.). All the changes will be retained during drawing update.
  • The cut view title contains two new tokens: These tokens can display more information when needed. The Scale token shows the current cut view scale, while the View number (A) shows the cut view number using a single letter. You can configure the two tokens using the cut view configuration page in the Drawing Style Manager, or when editing the cut view title properties on existing sheets.
  • Manually moved cut view symbols on assembly drawings no longer reset their position during drawing update: This inconsistent behavior was part of specific cut view symbols that were requested by elements controlled by connections and created as part of automatic cut views. Now, updating connections in the model will no longer force the automatic cut views to reset during drawing update, allowing Advance Steel 2020 to preserve any manual modifications made to their annotations.
  • Cut view symbols can be individually deleted from drawings: Advance Steel 2020 will no longer force the cut view symbols to reappear during drawing update. You cannot restore manually removed cut view symbols. So, if the cut view symbols are accidentally removed, you need to recreate the cut view to restore the cut view symbols.
  • Align and Arrange Labels Commands: Starting with this version of Advance Steel 2020, two new commands are available for aligning and arranging labels on demand, on detail drawings. They use an existing reference label and a set of predefined rules, specific to each command. See Align and Arrange Labels on Drawings.
  • Cut view scale changes will no longer force the reset of any manual changes made to the cut view title, including position changes, text content and text formatting.
  • Manual dimensions on any hole inside a hole pattern: In previous versions, only certain cases were supported. In the rest of the cases the dimension points would be removed during drawing update. This feature improvement is available, by default, to all manual dimension lines.
  • Two modes for the leader line behavior when labeling holes: Automatic hole detection and manual hole selection. See Leader Line Behavior when Labeling Holes.
  • Added a new cut symbol for GA details to the US installation.
  • Improved the way areas containing arcs from features intersecting the curved beam edges are drawn on detail drawings.
  • Improved the mechanism that arranges plates on drawings and sets their length and width values, by allowing Advance Steel 2020 to choose the minimum area rectangle that fits the plate more often, optimizing their arrangement.
  • Improved the way arcs generated by filleted finishes done by cope features are detailed and dimensioned.
  • The fixed extension line option from the Dimension Style Manager is now considered by Advance Steel 2020 dimensions.
  • The “Create cut view” and “Create call-out view” commands now support the option to override the view request key through a parameter part of the command text. In addition to the existing “Settings” override dialog, the commands will now accept a “Key” parameter which will allow the manual input of the view request key.
  • Advance Steel 2020 manual smart dimensions now support profile mid-points for section side-views and cut-views.
  • Added nuts and washers in the Symbols folder for the imperial system.
  • The fixed extension line option from the Dimension Style Manager is now taken into account by Advance Steel 2020 dimensions.
  • Added new processes suites for the US installation.
  • Created detailing processes that are using variable page sizes for the US installation.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented cut views from keeping their position, format and title content after connection updates.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Renumber cut view command to temporarily reset modified cut view titles to their default format.
  • Improved insertion workflow and stability of section cut symbols when creating manual section cuts on general arrangement drawings.
  • Fixed an issue where curved surfaces of a plate were not taken into consideration by the mechanism that arranges the plate for detailing and naming purposes.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the preferred for manual dimensions snap graphic preview to appear.
  • Fixed an issue where specific skewed polygonal contour features would not correctly cut complex folded plates, resulting in incorrect detailing and CNC outputs.
  • Fixed an issue that caused cut symbols to move to the other side after the undo move operation.
  • Added measures to avoid the oversized green frame when setting the call-out viewport to the invalid depth size of 0 units.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Drawing Style Manager Compact with Purge to not work for duplicate model objects.
  • Fixed an issue causing the Document Manager to stop working (“System exception without special treatment has occurred”). The crash occurred when working with models and details containing a compass, after opening and updating a detail and closing and reopening the model.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Callout in Callout viewport to change its position after resizing the main callout.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the annotation symbols from callout views to move on each update after resizing the callout viewport.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the %DrawingNumber token to be evaluated when used inside cut symbols definitions.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the detail green frame to resize after a grid was removed from the detail drawing, but not from the model.
  • Corrected the cut view symbol stability after callout viewport resizing.
  • Fixed an issue that caused manual cuts created on assembly drawings based on dummy main parts to incorrectly consider the Y viewport size, creating an almost empty view. Now the mechanism to determine the depth of view will correctly consider the dummy assembly extends size.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the cuts made by weld preparations on folded plates to not appear on development drawings.
  • Fixed a Label Content Manager issue that would cause label tokens to not be correctly evaluated in the case of curved beams displayed in detail drawings.
  • Fixed an issue that caused new automatic cut views to be inserted very far from the main view, if the existing automatic cut views were moved before the update.
  • Manual dimensions on pipes and circular hollow profiles detailed from the side will no longer have a point appear on the profile geometry during drawing update.
  • Fixed an issue that caused manual dimensions to move during drawing update. The situation was isolated to some specific scenarios and related only to manual dimensions that were moved after the initial insertion position.
  • Fixed an issue that caused manual arc dimensions to change the reference arc, leading to an incorrect arc dimension, during update, for cases where the dimensioned curved beams were created with common system line end points.
  • Fixed a drawing style palette issue in the Italian installation where the category indexes of two camera drawing styles were reversed.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the approval status to not be saved when setting a custom approval status with a high number key value for documents in the Document Manager.
  • Fixed an issue that caused manual arc dimensions created on imperial unit drawings to not be kept during drawing update.
  • The properties of curved concrete beams are now displayed when called from a detail drawing.
  • Fixed an issue related to renaming and changing the number of detail drawings that caused revision clouds not to show up in revision details.
  • Fixed an issue that triggered the incorrect positioning of hole symbols in detail drawings, for holes coming from an Xref model, if the Xref model was moved inside the main model.
  • Adjusted the EN ISO 4017 bolts length rules calculation according to the manufacture specification.
  • Adjusted sorting criteria for the Polish BOM template “Material list summary” to use “Single part mark” as primary sorting attribute.
  • Changed the way the circle camera symbol determines its radius, by using the entire viewport area instead of only one of its edges, making the symbol show what the camera sees more accurately.
  • Corrected the way column orientation symbols are displayed in details after changing the Assembly detail direction.
  • Fixed an issue causing “Compact” and “Compact with Purge” not to work for “Clipping strategy” and for “View direction and model box”
  • Fixed an issue causing camera details in the Document Manager to enter the “Update Required” state due to unchecking “Used for collision check” for objects in the view.
  • Fixed an issue causing the %PosNum token to be replaced with the %Position token in the Drawing Style Manager, for the French installation.
  • Fixed an issue that caused a detail drawing using the %Sequence Number token in the drawing name, to disappear from the Document Manager on update.
  • Fixed an issue that caused detail titles to lose information about the detailed object after changing the object material and updating the detail.
  • Fixed an issue that caused incorrect unwrapping results on details for mirrored beams detailed with their beam end orientation set to “Higher XYZ on the right” or “Start point on the left side”.

  • Solved an issue where the BoM on drawing template list was empty when switching to the old BoM on drawing templates using the external BoM editor lists.
  • The camera symbol hatch that appears when using the Rectangle camera presentation was removed, and the rectangle camera symbol will draw only the box that defines the camera view.
  • Updated all language installations with BOM template that displays drawings approval status.


  • Propagate a Connection: The propagation tool recreates a connection in all the identical situations within the model. This is not a copy tool, but a tool that gathers the conditions in which a selected connection was created, identifies all the cases that meet all these conditions in the current project and creates connections in all the respective cases, matching the origin connection type and set of parameters. See Propagate a Connection.
  • Fixed an issue where the miter connection would not work between two plates in specific situations.
  • Fixed an issue where the model role “None” did not appear in the preferred sizes for English versions.
