GeoTools now begins its tenth year in the AutoCAD market. We continue to get wish-lists and user-feedback, requests from our existing usersand there will be a special emphasis on meeting those requirements in the coming weeks and months. We are pleased to say that we have successfully implemented about 70 % or more of all wish-lists and new commands / enhancements and bug fix requests that were brought to our notice during the past year. And almost all of the requests have been completed in record time. We apologize if some of your requests have not yet been fulfilled or completed partially. It will be our goal to complete all of them as early as we can.

One of the main goals of GeoTools V10 has been to ensure compatibility with AutoCAD 2010. GeoTools V10 has been tested with AutoCAD 2010 and works absolutely fine. It also runs on all vertical applications built on AutoCAD 2010. If you experience any problems with your setup, we will be glad to assist. The current release-version of GeoTools work best in the 'AutoCAD Classic' workspace of AutoCAD 2010. The GeoTools commands are not (yet) available in the tabbed ribbon interface of other workspaces of AutoCAD 2010. In workspaces other than 'AutoCAD classic', the GeoTools menu can be accessed by clicking on the AutoCAD icon at top left corner of the AutoCAD screen.

GeoTools V10 is compatible with all lower versions of AutoCAD until AutoCAD 2004.
