GeoTools V 9.08 Update:

In this update, we have extended the ability to control the output layer to a few more commands:

The following commands now have an explicit option within their dialog boxes to set the layer in which the output of the command is placed.

- GT_0LEN2PNT (Polyline Toolset 1 / Conversion Tools ) - Convert 0 length lines to points.

New commands added:

GT_BINDXREF (Drawing Cleanup Tools - Detaches all un-referenced XREFs and binds all others into current DWG): This is a cleanup tool that performs a most commonly needed requirement of CAD users before packing their drawings off to outside agencies - remove all unresolved external references and bind all valid attached xrefs.

GT_SCALECLEAN (Drawing Cleanup Tools - Remove all un-referenced scales): There is a bug in AutoCAD which causes the SCAELLISTEDIT command to keep displaying all scales from any external reference that was once attached to the current drawing, even after they are detached and gone. The GT_SCALECLEAN command helps to get rid of all these un-referenced scales by removing the entires from the AutoCAD dictionary.

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.
