New command added: GT_ZTREND (Analyze and fix Z elevation trends in 3d polylines) - (Polyline Tool Set 3), also
repeated under Drawing Cleanup Tools:

The GT_ZTREND command is used to analyze and fix (or set) Z elevation trends in 3d polylines.

In many 3d mapping situations, it is often necessary to ensure that digitized 3d polylines have consistently Upwards or Downwards flowing vertex elevations in 3d polyines. The GT_ZTREND command helps to check and ensure this. In many instances of surveyed data, the elevation flow may temporarily be reversed within a tolerance. The command can also identify such within-tolerance reversals and fix the data if the reversal is within allowed limits (reversal tolerance).
