Block Worktable Grid Dots
Previously, the grid dots on the Block worktable were set to small and often hard to see. Now, the default setting is large. This option can be adjusted by following these instructions: On the Block worktable, click Block > Drawing Board Options > Snap Grid > Display large grid dots.

Fabric and Photo Importing
Importing high resolution files to the EQ7 Fabric or Photo Library will make EQ7 run slowly. We recommend only importing image files that are 72-150 DPI (72 being preferred). This build now warns you when importing files that are larger than 150 DPI. EQ7 will still allow you to import the larger files, but we wanted to provide a warning so you can fix the issue, if possible. The warning messages are below.
