Commands Enhanced or changed

Minor enhancement: Many GeoTools commands offer dialog boxes within them that allows selection from a list of available choices. When the choices are many, selecting exactly what you need is cumbersome. A new 'Filter' option has been added to allow wild-card based filtering of what you see in the dialog box. The 'Filter' option will make data selection and management of data easier. This dialog is used by several commands to select layers, blocks, CAD styles, object types and user-created data from the DWG.

GT_POINTWEED: (GeoTools -> Drawing Cleanup -> Weed points based on spacing): This command now reports the number of points deleted during the weed process, giving a clearer message to the user.

GT_BREAKX (GeoTools -> Drawing Cleanup -> Break crossing objects at ends): This command now accepts line objects as input, in addition to polylines.

Interface changes


Bug Fixes

(geo) (GeoTools -> Miscellaneous Tools -> Enter geographical coordinates-Latitude,Longitude,Height): This command was broken and has been fixed.

GT_TRIANGULATE command (GeoTools -> Civil Tools -> Create TIN (Delauney triangulation)) would crash if it found two DTM points that were duplicated and at the same location. This has now been fixed.

The automatic loading of toolbars during startup of CADPower and GeoTools has been disabled. The feedback we got was that this was annoying and must be removed.

GT_IMPEX command: (GeoTools -> Export -> Import/Export points and lines): This command had a bug resulting in incomplete and wrong processing during import if the description field contained leading or trailing spaces. This has now been fixed.

GT_INSPHOTO: GeoTools -> Geographic -> Insert GeoTagged photo: There was a problem with the PHOTO-CIRCLE.dwg block supplied with GeoTools. It was a 2013 dwg format and could not be opened in earlier versions of AutoCAD. This has now been fixed, and the DWG is now shipped as a R2000 dwg.
