Changes since 1.2.4

New Features

  • Map Layout now has a command to synchronize with the primary document window
  • Added support for Declared units in columns, which are set when Cartographica creates columns with known units (m,m^2,ft,ft^2) from Area and Distance operations

Feature Enhancements

  • Increased the limits on the number of open files substantially in order to reduce the likelihood of running out during normal operations.
  • When no internal projection information exists in an image file, a .PRJ file of the same base name will be used if available (compatibility with CartoMobile)
  • New Synchronize With Map sets visible layers and zoom area to the same as the current map window corresponding to the source map
  • Substantial performance improvement to Select By Legend Style (clicking on a style in the legend and having it select features in your map)
  • Prevent selection of Non-string columns for string only values in Geocoder (Name, Type, Direction Prefix, Direction Suffix, City, State)
  • Added interoperability with recent Garmin receivers that use the UserDataSync method

User Interface Changes

  • Selection and Layer information is now visible in the inspector windows
  • Add/Edit features toolbar items are now appropriately disabled

Bugs Fixed

  • Fixed bugs in keyboard navigation in the vector editor that would result in inappropriate selections when navigating lines via option-arrow combinations.
  • Fixed bug which would cause layers with sub-styles to show up in the second column if there wasn't enough height for all items to be visible.
  • Fixed confusing Locate missing file text
  • Fixed a small bug in Shapefile importer
  • Fixed bug in inserting points in multi-part geometries that would occasionally result in points ending up in the wrong part
  • Fixed bug that could result in bad upper-bounds when calculating Jenks Distributions with large numbers of values
