GeoTools V 11.03 update:

1. GT_PARTSTRETCH [Polyline Tool Set 2 -> Stretch part of a polyline]: A bug has been fixed in this command which caused malfunction of the command when the first segment of the polyline was picked for stretching.

2. GT_PARTROTATE [Polyline Tool Set 2 -> Rotate part of a polyline]: When the base point for rotation is asked, the OSNAP mode is now set automatically to ENDpoint. (enhancement)

3. GT_PARTOFFSET/GT_PARTCOPY/GT_PARTRESHAPE/GT_PARTROTATE/ GT_PARTSTRETCH [Polyline Tool Set 2]: All these commands now set and restore their OSNAP setting.

4. GT_XFER_OD_XD : (AutoCAD Map Tools -> Transfer object data / xdata between two objects) : This command caused a crash in plain AutoCAD. This has been fixed.

5. GT_ALIGNTEXT (Text Tools -> Align Text Objects) & GT_ALINGTEXT2LINE (Text Tools -> Align Text Objects to a line): These two commands now call and run correctly from the pull-down menu as well as the toolabrs. Until now, they were calling a wrong command name and displaying a message to the effect that the command name has changed but with no offer to run that command.

6. GT_OD2XD (AutoCAD Map Tools -> Convert object data to Xdata) : This command would not work correctly if there was only one object table in the drawing if the user clicked Ok without selecting it with a mouse click. The implicit, autmoatic selection of a single object data table was not working. This has been fixed now.

7. General change: All commands that require a block to be inserted would work correctly only if the block was defined with the default setting of "Non-Uniform scaling". If this default was changed and a block created with "Uniform XY Scaling", the block insertion would not work correctly in certain AutoCAD versions. This has now been fixed.

A number of other small bugs have been fixed and improvements made.
