This update is for the full version of trueSpace7.61 with Workspace, Model, and the Bridge.
Important: This Update should not be used with the tS7.61 Standalone version!

:: Layouts

4View, Default, Floating, Expanded, and trueSpace6
* These layouts have been fixed to prevent the Main toolbars from showing on the
Desktop when tS is Minimized by merging the bottom two Workspace toolbars together into one toolbar and docked with the Status panel.
* Removed the duplicated tSMainWnd nodes.
* Removed all of the RS...toolbar Frame Windows.
* Set the OwnedBy attribute for most of the toolbar's Frame Window which stops the toolbars from showing through newly opened Views.
