Here's what's new in v6.3.2 (2011)!
• This update addresses several issues that surface in the Tags panel after updating to iOS 17.
• We fixed a bug that resulted in unintuitive behavior when switching between perspective and parallel projection camera modes using shortcut toolbars.
• We made a minor improvement to the USDz exporter and how it handles the visibility of tagged geometry. It’s now the case that when a tag is assigned to geometry and the tag is organized in a hidden tag folder, the geometry will not be visible in the exported USDz file. This improvement positively affects SketchUp’s AR model viewing capability.
• The update also includes a few other miscellaneous UI/UX improvements.
