March 13, 2015 - Release 1.0.5

  • New SPMEXPORT command! ("Professional" edition only) Export from BricsCAD to Google Earth (KML or KMZ), Shapefiles (SHP), Points (many formats), MapInfo, PostGIS, SQL Server, SQLite and many more
  • New SPMIMPORT command to directly open the import wizard without having the Palette open
  • The import wizard allows you to ignore the Z coordinate for all imported entities
  • There are two new column in the UDSs wizard, indicating if the data provider is valid for reading (Import) and/or writing (Export)
  • The ribbon, menu and toolbar of the application have been expanded and reorganized and now include the new commands
  • Now, the Zoom extents at the end of an importing process is performed only when the drawing was empty
  • The type of alphanumeric Fields are now stored, enabling to respect the data types when exporting the entities
  • Optionally you can convert the coordinates of ASCII Points in data of the imported entities
  • Now the possibilities to create, rename or delete Schemas and Tables depends on the application edition
  • In the coordinate transformation process the user is warned if any additional file is needed and how to get it
  • Now the application try to define automatically the source Coordinate System
  • The target Coordinate System is automatically selected if the objects to be exported have the same SRID
  • Added a button in the import wizard to go directly to run the process, skipping any remaining intermediate step in the wizard
  • Fixed a bug that left locked the import wizard when the data sources were slow to load
  • Now when the application warns the user that the coordinates are not transformed between identical source and target CRS, there is not any additional confirmation
  • The ability to rename UDSs, Schemas and Tables inside the import wizard itself has been removed, because it was confusing and not very practical
  • Fixed a bug which happens to early versions users when updating licenses in the new versions
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when entering an invalid license code
  • Now, all the texts are shown when many warnings occur during the execution of a process
  • Now, the coordinate systems are correctly shown in the section Properties of the Palette all the time
  • Fixed some problems that happened when navigating on the data source tree using the arrow keys
  • Warnings are no longer shown when some Field includes the "/" character
  • Fixed a bug that prevented uninstall the application if there not was any BricsCAD installed
  • Now the values of the imported entities elevations are correct
  • Fixed a bug that moved the imported entities to incorrect Layers
  • Has been added support for nested relative links in KML/KMZ files
  • The wizards welcome windows are now disabled by default
  • There are now new simplified buy pages for the application and the extended support in the web
  • Corrections of other minor bugs and other minor improvements
