German Users, Pick up GeoTools 9.19 update from:

Spanish Users, Pick up GeoTools 9.19 update from:


1. GT_NODELINESNAP : (Drawing Cleanup menu - Linear and Node Snap): The GT_NODELINESNAP command has been enhanced. You can now have the
command mark all the points where the snapping will take place so that the results can be previewed and checked before accepting. Until now, the command would automatically snap the points and there was no way to know which points have been snapped and how they have been snapped. The new output control options - Mark, Mark & Snap, Snap without marking (the eralier method) would allow you better control to evaluate the results of snapping produced by this command. Your feedback is welcome.

2. GT_ZOOMTXT : (Text Tools - Zoom to Text) : The GT_ZOOMTXT has been enhanced to now serach and replace user-defined text within dimension objects as well, in addition to text, mtext and block attributes.

New command added:

GT_ENDELEVCHECK (Drawing Cleanu Menu - Check for coincident(XY) end-points): The GT_ENDELEVCHECK command is used to check the two end
points of linear objects like lines, polylines, splines and arcs to see if there are other linear objects whose either end-point is at the same XY but different Z location. This is a useful tool for many photogrammetric data capture situations where two or more lines at differing Z elevations need to be identified.

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.
