GeoTools V 7.06 update:

Pick up this latest update from

This update of GeoTools has some important bug fixes and improvements in place:

1. GT_BATCHPROCESS (Miscellaneous Tools - Batch process multiple drawings with scripts): A number of small but significant bug fixes have been made. The acad.Exe path string name is now enclosed in double quotes to ensure correct handling of paths containing spaces. The logic checks for the existence of a script file / batch file has been corrected to ensure that the behavior is as designed.

2.GT_PROFILE (Civil Tools - Draw cross-sectional profile from 3d polylines): The "Horizontal" distance measurement option now works correctly. Until now, it was not working correctly and the program would always use the "Slope Distance" measurements even if the "Horizontal" distance option was selected. This was a bug in the user-interface (dialog box) component and has been fixed.

3. GT_TXTFILTER command (Text Tools - Filter Text objects) : User interface response, some bugs were fixed here.

4. GT_SHOWXD (Extended entity Tools - Display extended entity data from picked object): The listing of xdata from the picked object is made more user-friendly and prettier. The old style xdata struucture dump is also retained as it is for those of you who want to explore the structure in its raw form.

5. GT_XD_EXTRACT command (Extended entity data tools - Extract Xdata to ASCII files): Minor bug fix done.


Important note: While all of GeoTools commands are tested quite extensively before they are released, it is humanly impossible to test-run it under every different data type or operating environment. In the event that you notice any GeoTools command not functioning as expected, please bring it to our notice asap. We will attend to it and fix the problem as soon as possible.


Thank you for your continued support. As always, we welcome feedback at all times.
