Bug fixes:

The following bugs have been fixed:

  • Tolerance screen of the Write Target dialog was not shown or required a long time to load when using a CM-M6.
  • Data were not shown sometimes in spectral graph object when SCISCE_Absolute template was loaded.
  • The data property attribute was improperly set to "Copied reflectance data" when sample data was changed to a working target.
  • The upper and lower limit lines in a histogram object disappeared when the order of graphic objects was changed.
  • The group settings which had been set in an imported SpectraMagic NX *.mes file were not properly applied in the SpectraMagic DX trend graph object.
  • Trend graph object display items were incorrectly recalled when a document with multiple observer/illuminant conditions was saved and then reopened.
  • Changed horizontal or vertical labels on 2-axis graph object improperly reverted to default values when a measurement is taken.
  • A read error occurred when an attempt is made to open a document originally created by importing a text file and saving it to the database.
  • Tooltips were not displayed for some status bar or data panel bar icons.
  • A user equation could not be edited again after it had been added to the list items and set.
  • Graphic objects sometimes did not become selected when clicked depending on where in the object was clicked.
  • The [Search ...] item in [Edit] menu was incorrectly enabled even when All Data was selected in Target List.
  • Settings made in the Tolerance Setting or Default Tolerance Settings category of the Data Settings dialog were not saved when switching between categories.
  • The scrollbar displayed on a data list object did not function.
  • Data read from the CM-25cG using Sensor Sync could not be saved in some cases.
  • The data property attribute for colorimetric data was incorrectly shown as "Demo Spectral Data".
  • Changes to the number of decimal places for K/S Strength (User) were not properly applied.
  • For a document with multiple observer/illuminant conditions, when the multichannel graph object was set to show data for the primary conditions and the document was saved and then reopened, the multichannel graph object incorrectly showed data for the secondary conditions.
  • When the display language was set to Deutsch (German) and numeric label objects to show Lightness, Saturation Hue, a* Evaluation, or b* Evaluation, the values were not shown correctly.
  • When a document created with a SpectraMagic DX version prior to Ver. 1.21 was opened, the spectral graph object was shown compressed.
  • When a *.mes file created with a SpectraMagic NX version prior to Ver. 2.1 was imported, graphs were not shown in some cases.
  • When an object on the canvas was clicked, sometimes the object would be moved or the canvas would be scrolled unintentionally.
  • When taking automatically averaged sample opacity measurements with the CM-5, the measurement data were not displayed.
  • When a serial printer was connected and Auto printing after measurement was set, when a measurement was taken the data for the previous measurement were printed out.
  • Other minor bugs.

Changes from Ver. 1.21 to Ver. 1.22

Specification changes:

  • HASP driver installed during software installation has been updated from Ver. 7.41 to Ver. 7.80 for improved security.
  • Upper and lower tolerance limits can now be selected as display items for the numerical label object.

Bug fixes:

The following bugs have been fixed:

  • Problem in which errors sometimes occurred at the time of measurement or sensor sync could not be performed when a CM-M6 that was used with SpectraMagic DX Ver. 1.0x was used with SpectraMagic DX Ver. 1.10 or later.
  • Problem in which the values for Audi2000 items and FF became abnormal when measurement data taken using a CM-M6 and SpectraMagic DX Ver. 1.0x was read using SpectraMagic DX Ver. 1.10 or later.
  • Problem in which an error occurred when a SpectraMagic NX *.mes file was read in and then a *.mesx file or a template edited using SpectraMagic DX was read.
  • Problem in which when using SpectraMagic DX on a system with the decimal symbol set to "," (comma), the minimum value was not unchecked when performing manual averaged measurements even if "Eliminate outliers" is checked in the Averaged Measurement: Options dialog.
  • Problem in which the Save XML Data dialog was sometimes shown when Ctrl + S (Save to DB) was pressed.
  • Problem in which when sensor sync was performed with a CM-M6 connected, the order of data shown in the Sensor Sync tab was alternated for each group of 25 data.
  • Problem in which the luminance data shown on a ΔHunterLab graph was not plotted as ΔL(Hunter).
  • Problem in which when using a CM-3600A with the UV Cut setting set to "Cutoff Wavelength Data Copy", the data at the cutoff wavelength was not copied.
