GeoTools V 11.16 - Update released today.

Enhanced commands:

GT_ENCLOSE (GeoTools -> Text Tools -> Enclose Text in Box): The GT_ENCLOSE command now supports additional options to enclose text objects. You can now use either a WIPEPOUT, SOLID or 3DFACE object to create the enclosing bounding box. These are provided under the 'Box' sub-option and closely mimics the AutoCAD TEXTMASK command.

GT_LAYERMAN (Geotools -> Miscellaneous Tools -> Layer Names Editor): Two additional options have been introduced 'Add at Position' and 'Strip at Position'. These two options allow you to add or remove a specified number of characters from the layer name starting from a specified position.

For instance, if you have layers called LOTS-LABELS, LOTS-LINES and LOTS-CENTROIDS and would like to rename them to LOTS-OLD-LABELS, LOTS- OLD-LINES and LOTS-OLD-CENTROIDS, this is the tool to use.
