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.

Thank you for your continued support.
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.
