Our last update brought you the new UAD guidelines from the GSEs for the Design (Style) and Garage/Carport fields. This update introduces improvements to the way those new fields are handled in TOTAL as well as bug fixes related to working with reports that were created before the guidelines were released.

We’ve also fixed an issue some of you reported to us regarding images refreshing when adding a photo to a photo page from the Photos PowerView. Because of your feedback, we were able to identify this issue quickly and get the fix to you. As a reminder, we read all feedback and it influences our decisions as we update the product. We’re thankful for all of it – both good and bad.

That’s all for now, but expect another update very soon.
