Important Fixes

  • [T1675] Coordinate Systems - A link to open the Mapping folder has been added in the Info dialog located beside the Vertical Coordinate System option on the General Configuration Options dialog.
  • [D6672] Coordinate Transformations - Coordinates outside the extents of the US VERTCON grid shift files could not be transformed from UTM-NAD83 to UTM-NAD27, even when not using the NADCON grid shift files for the transformation.
  • [D6622] Coordinate Transformations - Custom column settings in the Active Coordinate Editor were incorrectly migrated from previous versions which could result in a unit scaling problem.
  • [D6678] Drawing Recovery Wizard - When opening a drawing that is in-use or read-only, the Recovery Wizard should not take any action.
  • [D6517] FieldGenius Import - The Default Folder and Last Used Folder settings were not being saved and restored correctly.
  • [D6633] Global Mapper - Items in the imagery data list may become duplicated.
  • [D6634] Global Mapper - Error dialogs cannot be dismissed by pressing OK, effectively hanging the program.
  • [D6635] Global Mapper - The program may crash during Exit after running the Global Mapper command.
  • [D6637] Global Mapper - The program may frequently stop responding when adding an online data source.
  • [D6639] Global Mapper - Deleting an item from the imagery data list sometimes does not work.
  • [D6640] Global Mapper - The icad.exe process may not terminate when exiting the program after running the Global Mapper command.
  • [D6641] Global Mapper - An "Unknown command's exception" error message may occur.
  • [D6642] Global Mapper - A manual REGEN is sometimes required to make the imagery display.
  • [D6645] Global Mapper - Various custom data files were created in the wrong folder.
  • [D6653] Global Mapper - The program may stop responding when running CAD commands after running the Global Mapper command.
  • [D6710] Global Mapper - A regen may occasionally cause the imagery to disappear.
  • [D6712] Global Mapper - The background color can now be controlled, so black lines in a shapefile are not invisible against the default black background.
  • [T1648] Global Mapper - The Global Mapper command is now automatically loaded into the program.
  • [D6647] Menus - The prompt to reset your menus when upgrading from a previous version contained a warning message about the Context menus that is no longer applicable.
  • [D6704] Pentax Import - Pressing OK without selecting a valid data file to import can cause the program to crash.
