GeoTools V 12.07 update:

GT_IMPEX command enhanced: (GeoTools -> Export Tools -> Import/Export points and lines) : The GT_IMPEX command now has an additional option during import of points. You can specify a block attribute or object data field to receive the point elevation values. This is in addition to the transfer of 'Point Number' and 'Description' fields that be set as block attributes or object data fields.

GT_LAYERMAN command enhanced (GeoTools -> Miscellaneous Tools -> Layer Names Editor): The GT_LAYERMAN command now has an option to merge one layer into another. You can select multiple layers as source layers and specify one layer to merge all of them into.

GT_VIEWLINKED command (GeoTools -> Export Tools -> View handles-linked ASCII data) : The GT_VIEWLINKED command populates all records from the ASCII file into the dialog box. However, in Bricscad, there is a bug which causes a huge performance loss when trying to populate large number of records into the popup list of the dialog box. To prevent this, the GT_VIEWLINKED command will list only the first 3000 records of the ASCII file in the dialog box in Bricscad.
