The optimization dashboard organizes the per cycle output of constraint and error function info into more visual charts and tables. Information for exact and weighted constraints is gathered into two tables that can be sorted, making it easier to see which constraints are the most challenging for the optimizer. These tables along with error function progress, layout, and performance charts are updated with each cycle change if selected.
Furthermore, the constraints can be set to auto mode where they are weighted and converted to exact constraints as needed. This process is fully automated and requires no intervention by the user, and mimics the process by experienced designers (click the help links embedded in the Extensions for more details).
