Issues Addressed with this Service Pack

ArcGIS Desktop

  • CQ00113777: Write solver for partial establishment of flow direction.
    When changing a part of the network, e.g. closing/opening switches in an electrical network, we only need to retrace through the part of the network reachable from certain sources/sinks, and that all other edges should keep their current values. The new solver is identical to the current one except that when it writes the trace result back into the network, it skips the result edges that have uninitialized flow.

    CQ00143970: Identify does not show a domain's description from a related table (only shows code).

    CQ00150545: Network 'Display Arrows' fail to draw after you define a Coordinate System.

    CQ00150626: When exporting a map labled in Japanese into the Illustrator file, the Japanese characters dissappear.

    CQ00152359: When using an arcmap template or map doc without a username and password saved in it, the app will crash when a user attempts a copy and paste from one feature class to another.

    CQ00153281: (CQ00159178) Add support for CMYK color export to PDF.
    Currently, all colors in an exported PDF are being exported as RGB colours. This leads to serious colour shifts when the user is expecting CMYK values to be the same as those specified in ArcMap.

    CQ00155055: EMF picture fill symbol with raster elements not rendered as raster on output.
    The Unique Values renderer fails and produces odd results in the EMF file when trying to clip the symbol and fill the polygons with a pattern tile.

    CQ00155890: Reconcile fatals on missing junction feature.

    CQ00157960: Adding environment variables may cause ArcMap to Crash immediately when double clicked from the desktop or selected from the program menu.

    CQ00158029: Graphs and other inserted EMF graphics may dissappear after exporting to EPS file.

    CQ00159579: Reprojecting a data frame that cotains annotation and leaderlines distorts the leaderlines.

    CQ00159932: The attribute values in their database that are associated to a coded value domain WITH default values are automatically switching back to their default values when using the Shared Edit tool.

    CQ00159934: ITopologicalOperator::Simplify doesn't work for some Bezier Curves.

    CQ00161137: When simple features are part of the selection set and the Connect command is executed, ArcMap will crash.

ArcInfo Workstation

  • CQ00148608: Form menus brought up on new threads more than 1536 times hang the session, when more than 25750 times give FORRTL error.

    CQ00154447: Layerimport is failing to import data when one of the layers columns is defined as NOT NULL (primary key).

    CQ00156416: CONTROLPOINTS Interface crashes after number of "GDI objects" reaches 10,000.

    CQ00158508: On Windows XP, When starting arc, this message is displayed: AML error starting arc, line 35 of arc.aml
