Localization: minor updates to all supported languages
Bug fixed that caused the IFC export to fail if a group property had only a default value
Bug fixed that caused the Model Placement Editor to fail if the pivot point values where explicitly cleared by the user
Simplebim 7.0 SR1 (30.1.2018)
Viewports added to the 3D palette. With viewports you can visually groups objects and use these selection sets for various purposes. Viewports are saved to the native file format (.cube) and you can easily export each viewport to a separate IFC file.

Table palette: ‘Hide New Columns’ option added to context menu for controlling how new columns are handled when the layout is loaded
Objects palette: enabled adding generic groups into the classification item tree
License: improved messages when releasing network license
Properties palette: option added for showing only property set and quantity set properties
