What does the use of Ambient Light mean for my older plans?

In pCon.planner 7.3 and newer versions, the Ambient Light is used as a standard light source. Plans that were created in pCon.planner 7.2 or an earlier version will still contain the old standard lighting, which consisted of several directional light sources.

If you open an older plan with a current version of pCon.planner, it will still contain the old standard lighting and all additional light sources. The Ambient Light Intensity will automatically be set to 0%. The original lighting therefore remains 1:1.

The Insert Unit indicates the unit of measure in which objects should be inserted. You can change this by clicking on the Application Menu, choosing Document Properties and switching to the Settings tab. Changes pertain to the current plan.

The correct Insert Unit is important if you are editing plans from other CAD programs.

The Length Unit describes the standard when inputting the measure of length. The Insert Unit has an effect when you want to use plans created in another CAD program. Click on the respective unit for more detailed information.

It is likely that you installed the free version of pCon.planner. To check, look at the top (on the title bar) of the program window. There you can read whether the currently-installed edition is pCon.planner (the free version) or pCon.planner PRO (the professional edition). Please bear in mind that a data connection in the free version of pCon.planner is not possible.

You generate an Image or a Video. The media output dialog opens and you do not see your desired image. Instead, you see a single-colored area or a completely different picture.

When needed, pCon.planner provides the opportunity to add a company logo or other graphics to your images and videos. In the described situation, it is possible the function Show Logo is enabled. If the Size of the logo is still set at 100% (or bigger) and Transparent is disabled, the logo will be placed on top of your image.

Adjust the Unit for your current dimension style (available in both the free and PRO versions of pCon.planner).

The Settings for the program will remain persistent. They will be retained even after closing out of and reopening pCon.planner. They also have an effect when you create a new plan or open an existing one.

The Document Properties refer to the currently loaded plan. They are saved together with the plan and are then available the next time it is opened. You can also set different Document Properties for other plans simultaneously.

The walls in my plan are no longer connected. How do I fix this?

During the planning process, you may accidently break the connection between two walls. When this happens, you will recognize that the corners are no longer aligned, but form a gap instead. Often times, you will continue to work on the plan before you realize that the walls are no longer connected. Because of this, the Undo button will not usually solve the problem.
