Build-A-Board 2.20 Release 3 Known Issues

You should first select a Run-Time target before performing any build once the Builder is started.

The ;; (double semi-colon) as a line break for the Key Label is not documented. To obtain a line break on a key, use the ;; sequence within the text at the point you wish the line break to occur.

The Key Label {IMG:ACMD} is not documented. This presents the unicode character for the Apple Command character on the Mac OS X run-time (see Source examples: Mac Keyboard, Mac Large). This character is displayed in the Panel font, and it is not drawn internally like the other IMG: Key Label entries - it is a special label for the Mac OS X run-time. This is not supported on other platforms.

Linux run-times: will only type with 2.10 layouts, even though 2.20 layouts will display. Build-A-Board 2.20 projects must target ANSI 210 (MSWIN). New NKBF layouts must be different sizes to repaint correctly. The HiRes key type will not scale to the key size. PNG images work best with 24-bit color. Contact IMG for status if deploying Release 3 Linux run-times and 2.10 layouts aren't sufficient. (Refer to updated Linux run-times)

Many sample layouts from the previous 2.10 version do not have the Shifted Key Label set - as such, Caps and Shift will function correctly, but not change the displayed layout. For a working 2.20 samples, refer to the Keyboard Numpad Sample 2 or Windows CE Keyboard layouts.

Within the builder, multiple key selects for Key Hover/Key Press will not set back to None/0 - you must do individual keys.

For certain User Account Control settings in certain versions of Windows, the Run option after a build may not launch the test board. The Program Compatibility Assistant will establish this registry entry to allow normal operation:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers]
"C:\\Program Files\\Build-A-Board\\BIN\\builderu.exe"="ELEVATECREATEPROCESS"

For certain custom DPI settings, the Key Properties dialog will not display a scroll bar, preventing access to all options. Use a standard DPI setting, or adjust your custom setting to allow proper display of the dialog.

If you do a 2.20 install over an existing 2.10 install, the TEST folder will have incorrect files, and the "Run My-T-Soft" option after successfully building a board will not operate correctly (Recommended to Un-Install 2.10).

The Key Action is limited to 128 characters, although using the zoom dialog allows longer macros, which can cause memory issues if longer macros are created - be sure to watch character limit and make sure macros remain less than 128 characters. If TypeFile/PlayMacro type external macros have non-character data (line feed/carriage returns/control characters) the macro may not work, and can cause the process macrobat in Linux to stop.

There is a system workaround for the issue noted in Build Process Notes in the User's Guide - see Tech Item PU2011120667

Running in Windows 8/8.1:
You will want to install on Windows 8, and then right-click on the Build-A-Board icon, select Properties | Compatibility Tab | Compatibility mode - Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows 7. Also do this for the Licensing Information icon.

Running in Windows 10:
You will want to install on Windows 10, and then right-click on the Build-A-Board icon, select Open File Location (\Program Files\Build-A-Board\BIN) then do the following for BUILDERU.EXE, LICENSE.EXE, LICENSE2.EXE - select the file, right-click, select Properties | Compatibility Tab | Compatibility mode - Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows 7.

There is no automatic way to select a platform when ordering on the web - contact IMG Customer Service to select a Platform license for your BAB220?????? License.
