Medeek Truss Plugin / Re: Timber Truss Creation Bug

I'm wondering if this has to do with the modal bug in SU 2023.  What happens if you update SU to the latest version:  2023.1?
Version 3.3.3 - 09.22.2023
- Improved the responsiveness of the "Edit Roof Plane" tool and the "Move Roof Edge" tool for complex roofs.

Previously when a complex roof was positioned on top of any wall assemblies and either of the two tools mentioned above were executed there existed the possibility of collinear edges with the roof assembly and the wall assemblies below.  This conflict would then not allow one to properly select the desired roof edge unless the wall assemblies were hidden, or put on a hidden tag/layer.  This fix should mitigate that problem and allow one to select a roof edge (on the roof outline) without having to take that additional step.

I highly recommend upgrading to this latest version if you are using complex roofs.
Version 3.3.0 - 09.21.2023
- Moved the Geometry Markers section from the General tab to the Walls tab in the Global Settings.
- Added a geometry marker size parameter to the Walls tab of the Global Settings.

The General tab of the Global Settings has become too large (or cluttered) and it made sense to move the geometry markers to the Walls tab.  I also received a number of requests about making the geometry markers larger.  So I figured, why not let the user customize them to the size they would like.

Tutorial 25: Estimating Complex Roofs (13:13 min.)

To better fill the gaps in the mdkBIM Multi-year licensing I've decided to offer one additional licensing price point.  The three permanent licensing options (multi-year) are:

5 Year - $560.00  (Discount Code:  MDK5YEAR)
10 Year - $770.00  (Discount Code:  MDK10YEAR)
30 Year - $980.00  (Discount Code:  MDKLIFE)

Each price point offers a progressively steeper discount as the number of years of licensing increases.

To purchase a lifetime license, login to the Account Manager and then click on the mdkBIM icon.  Click on purchase mdkBIM Suite, then enter in one of the discount codes above.  You will notice that the price will adjusted accordingly and the expiration update date will also reflect the multi-year license.

As mentioned previously if a multi-year license is purchased I am also willing to thrown in the Electrical plugin license at no additional cost and its license will also reflect the same number of years as whatever multi-year option was chosen.
Version 3.3.2 - 09.17.2023
- Added statistics for complex roofs (Medeek Estimator integration).

Version 1.1.4 - 07.01.2023
- Added complex rafter roofs within the Medeek Estimator.
- Added rafter labels (total length) for complex rafter roofs within the Medeek Estimator.

Version 3.2.9 - 09.14.2023
- Fixed a critical bug with loading wall presets in the wall edit menu (metric and imperial).

It was actually two bugs in two separate places but it impacted the same thing, again strange that no one noticed this bug until now or at least it was not fully brought to my attention until today.  Both bugs were simple typos, an easy fix.  This did not affect the wall draw menu and loading presets, only the edit menu.  I highly recommend everyone update their installation to this latest version.
