**** Headlines Today (CADPower & GeoTools):

- CADPower V 14.25

New command added: CP_CMDLIST (CADPower -> More Options -> List GeoTools/CADPower commands) : The CP_CMDLIST command displays a category-wise lists of all commands in GeoTools and CADPower. It also produces a common list of commands which are present in both GeoTools and CADPower.

Minor enhancement: Many CADPower commands offer dialog boxes within them that allows selection from a list of available choices. When the choices are many, selecting exactly what you need can be cumbersone. A new 'Filter' option has been added to allow wild-card based filtering of what you see in the dialog box. The 'Filter' option will data selection and management of data easier. This dialog is used by several commands to select layers, blocks, CAD styles, object types and user-created data from the DWG.

Major enhancement: CP_TC (CADPower-> Text-> Creation-> Draw Quick Text (running numbers): The Text Counter command has been significantly enhanced. You can now create auto-incrementing text based on real numbers also. If you need to create a text series like 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and so on, it is now possible using the new feature in the CP_TC command. The Character incrementing series algorithm also has been completely re-written. You can now create chaaracter series like A, B, C, D.... Z, and continue as Aa, Ab, Ac..... The 'Insert from existing series' and 'Delete from existing series' options have been completely re-written and verified for correctness.

Enhancement: The CP_XYZSCL (CADPower -> Miscellaneous -> CAD Procedures -> Scale objects (unequally) in X,Y and Z directions) command has been improved. You now have the 'R-Relative' option to specify scale factors in X and Y direction. The Relative option works like in the SCALE command and allows you to specify (or mouse pick) an old length and a new length, thereby determining the scale to be applied.

- GeoTools V 14.25

New command added: GT_CMDLIST (GeoTools -> More Options -> List GeoTools/CADPower commands) : The GT_CMDLIST command displays a category-wise lists of all commands in GeoTools and CADPower. It also produces a common list of commands which are present in both GeoTools and CADPower.

Minor enhancement: Many GeoTools commands offer dialog boxes within them that allows selection from a list of available choices. When the choices are many, selecting exactly what you need is cumbersone. A new 'Filter' option has been added to allow wild-card based filtering of what you see in the dialog box. The 'Filter' option will data selection and management of data easier. This dialog is used by several commands to select layers, blocks, CAD styles, object types and user-created data from the DWG.

Bug fix: The GT_TRIANGULATE command (GeoTools -> Civil Tools -> Create TIN (Delauney triangulation)) would crash if it found two DTM points that were duplicated and at the same location. This has now been fixed.
