GeoTools V 12.16 update:

** Enhanced command: GT_SEGLABEL (GeoTools -> Annotation Tools -> Label polyline segments): The GT_SEGLABEL command now has a new option to do bearing annotations. It is the degree-minute-second format in the style D°M'S" and is preceeded by a N and succeeded by a E or W depending on whether you are in the 0-180 or 180-360 bearing zone.

** Bug Fix : GT_SPL2PL (GeoTools -> Conversion Tools -> Convert splines to polylines): The GT_SPL2PL command would fail in Windows Vista and Windows 7 if the User Account Control was On and the DXF method was invoked. This is because the command was attempting to create a temp file in the C:\ folder. This has now been fixed and the temp file creation is now done in the Windows TEMP folder where the permissions automatically exist.

** Bug Fix : GT_IMPORT2DM (GeoTools -> Miscellaneous Tools -> Import 2DM files as 3dface objects): The GT_IMPORT2DM command had a small bug which caused a spike (due to wrong coordinates reading) during theprocessing of points whose records number was 1. This has now been fixed.

** Bug Fix : The GeoTools pull-down menu would not appear when GeoTools was started for the first time under the following condition:

If it was loaded via LISP in the 'on_doc_load.lsp' -AND- if the the Startup Mode in Bricscad is : "Display the startup and create new drawing dialog boxes".

This has now been fixed. The menu appears on startup under all Startup conditions.

Thank you for your continued support. As always, we welcome feedback at all times.
