    ArcFM Mobile 3.1 for Windows Release - December 16, 2016

     

    What's New in ArcFM Mobile (iPad)

    • This release contains no new functionality for the iPad Mobile App.

     

    What's New in ArcFM Mobile (Windows)

    • All new redlining capabilities!
      • A fast and simple user experience where crews just place redline graphics - no GIS experience or training is required.
      • Configurable so your organization can build custom redlining palettes, optionally including your asset symbology.
      • Full offline support so users can create redlines anytime/anywhere, synced to the enterprise automatically when a connection is available.
      • Workflow support bringing redlines to ArcFM Desktop for processing, and they can be viewed on any ArcGIS Platform app as well!
    • ArcFM Mobile for Windows is now internationalized so it can be translated for cultures other than US English. Note that localization is still required - the app is currently available only in English.
    • ArcFM Mobile for Windows and its downloaded GIS data can now be shared by multiple users on a single laptop, so each user does not need to download the same data.
    • The Identify tool now returns only features selected by the user that are visible at the current extent, preventing unintended large selections when zoomed out.
    • The map view now includes zoom buttons to aid user navigation of the map on devices that do not have mouse and gesture control.

     

    Known Issues for iPad

    • iPad 2 and iPad 3 users might experience slower performance.
    • The map re-zooms to the selected operational map after checking for new maps.
    • Reference scale is not supported in offline data, so symbols may appear small when tightly zoomed in.

     

    Known Issues for Windows

    • When viewing both online and offline data, duplicate symbology and annotation may be displayed in the map, depending on the scale.
    • Features with relationships of many-to-many cardinality or attributed relationships are not shown as related features in Search and Identify results.
    • If your map services are hosted on ArcGIS Server 10.3.1 SP1 or earlier, the second tier of nested relationships is not visible in Search or Identify results.  To see the second tier of nested relationships while using online data in the mobile application, upgrade your ArcGIS Server to version 10.4 or later.  Currently, nested relationships are not supported when using offline data.
    • Labeling based on ArcGIS Feature Service properties is not displayed properly in ArcMap.  This could impact viewing ArcFM Redlining dimension lines and any other redline features on which labels have been enabled.  To view labels, Schneider recommends configuring your labels and saving in an MXD or ArcFM Stored Display.
    • Transparency settings based on ArcGIS Feature Service properties are not displayed properly in ArcMap.  This could impact viewing ArcFM Redlining highlights, polygons, and any other redline features on which transparency has been enabled.  To view transparency correctly, Schneider recommends configuring your layers' transparency settings and saving in an MXD or ArcFM Stored Display.
    • On touch devices, quickly tapping the map three or more times in a row can cause the application to exit unexpectedly.
    • On Windows 7 touch devices, pop-up text boxes such as those used for the ArcFM Redlining callout and dimension line functionality, can not be selected with a finger tap.  A mouse or stylus must be used.
