This version fixes an issue some users have experienced with printing.

v5.6.5, July 2018

This update has lots of improvements in response to your feedback:

Live News Feed
So you can stay up to date with product and content developments that can benefit you and your organisation.

New search menu and improved search
You told us that when you were editing a specification, it wasn’t always obvious where you could search the NBS Building libraries for additional content. So we’ve added a new search menu as well as adding a more conveniently located search box just above where you will be editing your work sections.

Easier to insert images with improved export performance
For customers wanting to insert images in line with their specification clauses, you can now do this more easily thanks to a new right click insert images option. Customers exporting specifications should also see a performance improvement in this area.

Easier to select manufacturer products
New drop down values displaying available NBS Plus content will make the viewing and selection of manufacturer products quicker and easier. PLUS we’ve added a new ‘suggest a manufacturer’ link so that you can let us know products you would like to see made available in NBS Building.
