What's new in the latest version of PlanStudio!

There is a new option for ‘Legend Icons’ where you can choose to ‘Show All Icons’ that appear on the floorplan (provided they are turned on in your Icon filter), regardless of whether they are visible on the sign current or not (Current default behaviour),


You can choose to ‘Show Visible Icons Only’ Which will remove any icons not visible on the Signs floorplan space, from the legend.

PK-1693 You can now change the background colour when editing Diagram templates.
