The process of streamlining CADPower and GeoTools continues. We have updated the CADPower tutorials completely in V 14.10, to reflect the current UI, menus and options.

We present a completely new set of 11 tutorials that take you through a guided step-by-step instruction of over 35 CADPower tools.

We recommend new users of CADPower to go through the tutorials so as to gain a complete and comprehensive understanding of the tools.

- Bug fix: CP_CONNECTBLOCKS: 'CADPower -> Blocks -> Block Related -> Connect bocks based on attribute values': If the attribute tag name was incorrectly specified, the command would crash. This has been fixed now. Additionally, you can specify multiple attribute tag names separated by commas. This means that you can now connect multiple attribute names across blocks using this command.

- Bug fix: 'CADPower -> Text -> Conversion -> Change Case': The CP_ChCase command was not converting the 'Title Case' od under-lined text. This has been fixed now.

- Enhancement: CP_CONS_TXT : CADPower -> Text -> Editing -> Consolidate text into Mtext : The CP_CONS_TXT command now gives you an option to delete the original text objects after consolidatng the same into a MTEXT object.
