Why did we make the changes for BricsCAD V23?

With all new releases, our development teams work hard to upgrade our code so BricsCAD remains compatible with the latest operating systems. In our Version 23 release, we have been converting our code, and we’ve already updated the Layers panel, Blocks dialog, Sheet Sets Manager, plus more!

As a bonus, updating our code gives us the opportunity to add new functionality and improve the visual presentation for our BricsCAD users.
