-----------------------

- CHG - #7895 - The Custom Detail URL have been changed to default to system 
coordinates (to match GTViewer for iOS/Android) and masks default off.  New Actions (locate0, loc0, locate1, and loc1) have been added to default the coordinate system mode.

name cut off, so it has been moved to the dialog instead of being in the titlebar.  The Onscreen adjustments have also been made.

- FIX - #7927 - The Feature/Component tab would not show the correct selected item on startup (but would after a fresh of the listview).

GTData 15.0.0.1 is Available


GTData version 15.0.0.1 is available.

There hasn't been a new installation for GTData in some time, so this is really just a roll-up of all internal changes to the core.  There are only two fixes listed, but there were more changes.   It was also difficult to get the newer fixes distributed without a setup.   The installation itself has changed in that it uses a newer version of InstallShield and doesn't try to install any components like MDAC or C++ Runtimes anymore.  There are too many different combinations, so those components will be installed as needed by the user.

-----------

-----------

- FIX - #7850 - GTStyleMgr - Update to error message for Update file and also display Update File in header info.
