GTViewer version BETA is Available


GTViewer 20 BETA version is available.   

This update includes a significant update to the Raster Backdrop functionality (for ECW and SID files).

  • ECW files with an Alpha Channel (transparency) are now supported.
  • Changes to the way the raster is rendered to the screen and printer to boost performance and decrease memory requirements.
  • Rendering to the display can now use multiple threads, significantly boosting performance when more than one raster file is displayed in the view.

- NEW - #8593 - TextFontMapping entry is now supported by the Export to DGN functionality to map a GTViewer font to a DGN font id while still using the GTViewer text parameters.

- NEW - #8594 - DashStyleMap entry is now supported by the Export to DGN functionality to map a Style's dash pattern to a DGN style id.
