New features and improvements:

  • Transform the drawing Coordinate Reference System (CRS)

    • The SPMTRANSFORMCRS function has been completely redesigned in order to improve its effectiveness
      • In addition, the process no longer starts from an empty template but the transformed drawing is an exact copy of the original but recalculating all the objects geometry
    • Now when transforming a DXF the resulting drawing is saved as DXF, not as DWG
    • Read more about it
  • Import / Export

    • A new tool has been added allowing to Export directly from one data source to another, without the need to import previously in your drawing to Export it later
      • This tool can be found in the data sources and tables contextual menus in the application main palette

    • Now, if the option “Import only Features in the current view” is activated when Importing a table or Importing-all tables from any WFS server, the reading of elements from the server will be filtered and only those that fit that spatial filter will be downloaded (A great time and performance advantage)
    • The ASCII data provider default parameters have been modified so that now the separator is the comma and the decimal delimiter is the period (More standard in most industries)
    • The KML/KMZ data provider is updated in order to allow reading of elements belonging to custom schemes
    • Automation of creating a non-existent folder when executing a defined Export task to that folder has been included
