This may be useful when comparing values with European suppliers who generally publish Uncorrected UGR Tables. Note: Uncorrected UGR Values are normalized to 1000 lumens while Corrected Values are based on the actual luminaire lumens
  • Indoor Tool-Settings - Added startup setting for UGR Table - Corrected (default) or Uncorrected
  • License Manager - Multi-user License Checkout does not work as expected when discounted from the internet


Bug Fixes:

  • Indoor Tool - 'RTE - Overflow' occurs when luminous dimensions result in zero luminous area (invalid shape)
