Dialux Evo 9

Post by joakiim » Tue Apr 07, 2020 7:20 am

Hi.
Ive been using your services for 10 years now and this is the worst update by far.
The result page is unusable, so much weird information that is no use for the customer, the layout itself is not keen on the eye.
It feels like you deliberate have done that so we have to pay in order to use it??

Our company is a premium client to DIAL that is already paying alot of money to use your program.
We wont upgrade to dialux evo 9, we will stick with 8.2 or change calculation program altogheter after this update.

/Dissapointed customer.

Dear joakiim,

We are sorry that you are not completely satisfied with the new evo version

Please explain your criticism more precisely, so that we can go into detail on individual points of criticism.
This general criticism is unfortunately not very productive, since we do not know which points we can improve if necessary.

We are sure that the new documentation layout is far better than the old one and it should be an improvement for every user. You do not need pay anything to use evo.

If you need your own corporate design layout you now have the additional option to subscribe to the Pro version and do this. This is nothing every user needs and nothing that was possible in older versions and we now charge for.

If you do not need the Pro version or you think it is too expensive or it does not offer what you need, you do not need to buy it. You will get a great documentation from evo even without paying a single cent.


Best regards,
Your DIAL Support Team

The main problem with the report output is the scaling of the images of the calculated areas. The numbers in the images are very hard or impossible to read. Also I think that every single page in the report should be able to be selected/unselected, or is that now a "PRO" feature? If we remove the pages with a PDF tool, the page numbers will be wrong.

Is it possible to add views to a report in Evo 9?

Hello,

you can select the pages by clicking "Edit" and select the pages you want:
select_pages.PNG
select_pages.PNG (31.22 KiB) Viewed 2999 times
You can add views/images to the cover page and to the description pages.

Both functions are included in the standard version. You only need Pro if you would like to create and use your own layout.

Best regards

Thanks for the reply. The pages that can be selected in your screenshot have several sub-pages. For an example workplane-page (if I recall it right) is actually two pages. Id like to unselect some of the unnecessary sub pages. I hope such change can be implemented as soon as possible.

Hello, I am a lighting designer and I have been working with Dialux for more than 4 years, the last update you did was very good, but in the documentation about the "views" part it has disappeared and has been changed with a worse alternative. Dialux is one of the great programs in lighting calculation and all the updates that are made should maintain the advantages that this software has and not transform the program into a premium version accessible to a few.
If Dialux continues to change the strong points of the program, it will be necessary to change the software

Hello all,

Thank you very much for your numerous constructive criticism and suggestions for improvement. Our product owners will of course take your wishes into account in the development of the upcoming evo versions. We hope that in the future we will be able to meet all the requirements that our lighting designers place on our software.

To keep the threads in the DIALux board manageable, we will block this thread for further comments. We would be pleased if you would continue to be so active in the forum and post your problems, questions and wishes in new threads.

Stay safe!

Best regards,
DIAL Support Team
