An issue that caused errant feature lines to be generated between stations has been resolved.

Cross Sections

Volume tables now remain as saved when reopening the drawing.

Non-orthogonal sample lines now sample corridor links as expected.

Data Shortcuts

Profiles are no longer duplicated in multiple alignments.

An issue that caused pipes and pipe labels to not plot as expected has been resolved.

Creating a reference to a grid surface no longer causes the application to close unexpectedly.

General

The performance of tooltips has been improved.

Labels

Alignment labels using the crows foot block are now aligned as expected.

LandXML

When importing LandXML data, alignments are now imported to the specified drawing layer.

Pipe Networks

The structure style block rotation is now aligned with the 3D solid.

The Part Matchup Settings for Box to Box and Elliptical to Elliptical are no longer being ignored.

Project Managment

DwgRelPath retains leading periods on Windows XP based workstations.

An error is no longer generated when checking in a drawing with a reference, when the reference drawing is checked out by another user.

Reports

Station Equations now work as expected when the decreasing option is used.

Surface

Waterdrop polylines now display proper linetype generation.

New surfaces created from a DEM now use the user specified coordinate system.
