*** GeoTools/CADPower V 13.06 update:

** Installation improvements while using GeoTools and CADPower together on one computer.

From V 13.06 onwards, you no longer have to fiddle around with the acad.lsp (for AutoCAD) or the 'on_doc_start.lsp' (for Bricscad) to ensure that both GeoTools and CADPower run together successfully on the same computer.

In one of my earlier post, I showed you a bit of fiddling around that was necessary to ensure that both these software ran together without problems. This is now handled by the program internally and automatically.

So, you **DONT'T** need to do any more all that these posts tell you to:

** Enhanced command: GT_3DOFFSET (GeoTools -> Build -> Offset 3d polylines): & CP_3DOFFSET (CADPower -> Build -> Offset -> Offset 3d polylines): A new option has been added to this command called "BOX". This allows you to offset a 3d polyline on both sises and also join the ends together to fox a box (closed joined polyline).

** Enhanced command: GT_XD_SEARCH (GeoTools -> Extended Entity Data -> Search and replace extended entity data) & CP_XD_SEARCH ( CADPower -> Extended Entity Data -> Search and replace extended entity data ): This command now has an option to filter the list of xdata applications that are displayed. You can choose from 'All' or 'User-defined' and accordingly, you will see a list of xdata applications that include all system defined xdata apps or only the user-created ones.

Please be aware that it is not advisbale to change xdata from system-defined applications because AutoCAD and many add-ons rely on them. Please be absolutely sure of your intentions if you are changing xdata.
