GeoTools V 11.19 - Update released today.

Enhanced commands:

GT_INSVX (GeoTools -> Polyline ToolSet1 -> Insert vertex) : Until now, you were only able to add a new vertex at a point on the existing segment of the polyline. The GT_INSVX now allows you to pick a point outside the polyline and a new vertex will be added at the picked location. The segment closest to the picked point will redraw itself to include the new vertex.

GT_FLIP (GeoTools -> Polyline ToolSet1 -> Flip(reverse) direction of polylines): The GT_FLIP command has been made more intuitive, with clearer dialog descriptions. A bug has been fixed which affected 2- vertex polylines. Additionally, support for LINE objects has been added when 'High-2-Low' and 'Low-2-high' options are chosen.

GT_ENDELEVCHECK (GeoTools -> Drawing Cleanup Tools -> Check for coincident (XY) endpoints with varying Z) : The GT_ENDELEVCHECK command now provides an option to create a single 3d polyline from the joined objects.

GT_3DJ (GeoTools -> Polyline ToolSet1 -> Join 3D Polyines) : The GT_3DJ command now allows LWPOLYLINE objects to be selected as inputs. You can now provide a combination of light-weight, heavy-weight polylines as well as lines and 3DPOLYlines as inputs for this command.
