Issues that the hotfix package fixes

This hotfix package fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • The angle and the length of a Wall shape or of an Exterior Wall shape change when you connect two shapes together.

    In your drawing, you connect two Wall shapes or two Exterior Wall shapes to each other. Or, you connect a Wall shape to an Exterior Wall shape. However, after you connect the shapes, the angle and the length of one of the shapes unexpectedly change. When you view the properties of the shape, you see that the angle of the shape is 0 degrees. And, the length of the shape is 0 inches.

    This problem occurs if the length of the shape is less than 10 inches.
