** New command added:
GT_FLIPZ: (Miscellaneous Tools - Flip(reverse) elevations (Z) from selected objects: The GT_FLIPZ command will reverse the z value sign of selected lines, polylines, point, text, 3dfaces, solids etc. So, an elevation of +2 would become -2 and vice-versa.

** Enhanced commands:

GT_TC (Text Tools - Draw Quick Text [running numbers]): The GT_TC command has been enhanced. You now have the ability to insert a new counter text in an existing series of text objects and automatically update all the other texts in the series which match the criteria. For example, if you have a existing text series like A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 and so on, you can insert a new text object called A3 and the program will automatically renumber all existing text objects greater that the picked value , like A3 becomes A4 and A4 becomes A5 and so on.


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.
