Drawing presentation and dimensioning plug-ins can now be loaded from the following pre-defined folders:

..common\extensions\custom\dimensioning

Earlier, custom properties were loaded from all folders and subfolders in ..common\extensions. This caused performance issues and loading failures when custom properties were used. Now the custom properties are loaded only from the extension folder ..common\extensions\custom\properties\.

This speeds up the loading process and solves loading problems caused by other software components in other extension folders. New functionality for loading custom properties can be switched off in startup ini files by defining the following advanced option:

set XS_ENABLE_FAST_CUSTOM_PROPERTY_LOADING=FALSE

When you do this, the loading of custom properties works as in previous versions.
