GeoTools V 8.07 Update:

Pick up this latest update from

** Enhanced commands:

GT_ANNOTPOINTS command (Annotation menu -> Annotate points based on layer names): Two new annotation options have been added to this command.

You can now optionally specify a different annotation layer, whose name is derived based on a user-defined suffix added to the points layer-name.

So, if the points are on layer 'POINTS' and if the suffix is '_TXT', the annotation will be placed in the 'POINTS_TXT' layer. The second new option is to provide an X and Y offset to the text being placed. This will position the text away from the points fro clarity purposes.


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 as soon as possible. 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.
