As an FYI for any users of LPub3D, an update (version 2.2.1) was recently released. This release seems to have addressed issues I had been experiencing with getting LPub3D to successfully render images using "faded" parts in versions 2.1 and 2.2. It appears to have also remedied an issue related to using POV-Ray to render images and POV-Ray is now successfully working for me to render images.

My installation is a Windows 7, 32 bit machine, so you may not have been experiencing the same issues.

The most recent version of LPub3D is available for download at https://sourceforge.net/projects/lpub3d/

Regards,

David

It also feels a lot faster and more responsive to me, but not sure if that's a placebo or not :grin:

Dealing with Lpub3D updates, i encounter a slight issue: because my windows is a 64 bits system, each update via the "check updates" feature fails. A box pops up and tells me there is an incompatibility between 64bits system and the uploader.

Has someone encountered the same problem?

I encounter a lot of problems with the last update (2.3.7).

While 2.3.6 was excellent, this one runs very bad on my system. Using files made with 2.3.6, a lot of things go wrong.

- Part step dividers unable to be centered,

- Step placement doesn't work well (as it used to act some updates ago).

- Page dimensions that can't hold anymore steps on it (whereas it worked good when setted up with 2.3.6).

- Assembly image randomly placed on page.

So, i'll go back to 2.3.6....if i find a way to make the uninstall feature work. I could uninstall from program list but there is a risk to loose set up.

EDIT: impossible to uninstall this thing, even through windows program list.....smells not good.....

Hi Greg,

I encountered some of the same problems you describe there too.

Some are solvable by doing things a bit different, some are not.

Did you report these bugs to the developer via Github?

Due to backward incompatibility, I am running multiple local (portable) versions of LPub3D which work fine.

Thanks for your input. I fought to uninstall the 2.3.7. Ultimately, i've removed manualy the Lpub3D folder from my /programfiles and reinstalled the good ol' 2.3.6.

The 2.3.6 is the best versions of LpuB3D i've ever used. On my system, it never fails, it's fast it's smooth. Can't undertand the 2.3.7 is such a mess.

New version 2.3.8 is available. Maybe this helps?

Seen it. I'll wait for feedbacks about it to update or not. For now, the 2.3.6 gives me total satisfaction.

Hmm, I had the same pain in removing version 2.3.7. Finally running 2.3.8 by removing a lot of stuff from 2.3.7 by hand. Now when trying to update to 2.3.9 there is a problem uninstalling then 2.3.8 version...

That is why I do not install, but have multiple portable versions running.

My LDraw stuff is at C:\LEGO\LDraw\...

None in Program Files, etc.

Keeps settings local too, and not in Roaming or registry.

Good idea. Just downloaded the zip file and extracted everything and put in the location of the previous version.

Thanks!
