  1. A customer, new to RockWorks17, saw the following error when the program first launched, as it was trying to load the Samples database: Could not open the database. Error loading MIDAS.DLL This error prevented the program from launching. This DLL is used by the RockWorks database. We install it along with the program into the RockWorks17 program directory (C:\Program Files\RockWare\RockWorks17 [64-bit version] or C:\Program Files (x86)\RockWare\RockWorks17 [32-bit]). It had been our understanding and our experience that the DLL local to the program calling it would be used. On this customer's Windows10 system, this was definitely not the case. After he confirmed that this DLL was indeed installed in the RockWorks17 program folder, we then had him search the Windows Registry on his computer for other occurrences of "MIDAS.DLL". There were two, and they referenced file locations that did not exist on his computer or network. He ran a registry cleaner which presumably removed these orphaned references, and then RockWorks17 launched successfully. Happy ending! Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc.
  2. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today with the following changes. Enhancements: + An option has been added to force the program to draw column top and base lines for Lithology Description, Lithology Pattern, Interval Text, Point Text and Well Construction Columns. + The Fracture column can now be set to use dip from vertical measurements. Fixes: + Comments in the Lithology Description column could cause items below to be offset even when not needed. + The last entry in the Lithology Description model wouldn't display the base of the interval line when the description spanned 2 or more pages + Lithologic descriptions that overlap 2 pages now plot correctly regardless of the device or output resolution. + When importing from a Multisheet Excel file the Well Construction Inner and Outer dimensions were swapped.

  3. A customer submitted a support issue for his RockWorks17 project, in which he was trying to create a Section diagram through his solid model with striplogs included. He had imported a very detailed polyline into the XY Coordinate Table - LOTS of vertices - to serve as the section trace. In the output diagram, at about a third of the way along the cross section, the logs started 'stacking up' at one location, resulting in the P-Data panels to the right displaying ok, but with no logs. The problem was best solved by using the P-Data | Projected Section diagram, in which the logs are not restricted to plot at panel edges; they are projected perpendicularly onto the panels instead. This is actually what the Projected Section diagrams were designed for - to eliminate the need to draw hole-to-hole section traces when the desired section polyline runs along a roadway, pipe, or similar, and those locations (typically imported into the RockWorks database) might be quite detailed. The problem was also solved for regular Sections by turning on the Snap feature in the Section Selection Map window before importing the section vertices. This pre-processes the section polyline such that logs can be assigned to panel junctions without confusion. Molly M RockWare Inc

  5. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today with the following changes. New Features: The Fracture column can now be set to use dip-from-vertical measurements. An option has been added for plotting a border around each Vertical Text interval. Improvements: A error message will now be displayed if the Vertical Text Top Depths are lower than the Base Depths or intervals with heights of zero. This will avoid errors within the display. Bug Fixes: PDF and other exports broken in the 2017.8.17 build (which was removed from our site) no longer produce an error. Lithology descriptions are no longer duplicated when Offset Description are enabled and the data contains many small intervals with long descriptions. The Save As option within the Log Designer no longer includes an invalid option for the saving to a LogPlot7 format. Vertical Text data is now saved in the editor if the Text value is empty. Vertical Text is now plotted if the Text Value is empty. The Vertical Text frame column now plots consistently. The Excel Template export no longer includes the data.

  7. A new version of RockWorks17 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following new features, improvements, and bug fixes. New Features: T-Data can now be displayed within the EZ-Section correlations. It is now possible to save the scene dimensions within RockPlot3D thereby allowing for the viewing of scene subsets. The Drape and Rectify programs can now drape an image over a selected portion of a grid. Note: The selected rectangle must be within the grid. Uniform and Circular symbols within the symbol maps may now be color-coded based on a cold (purple) to hot (red) color scheme. Lots of changes to the Stratigraphy Picker and Lithology Picker programs: + These programs now include a horizontal strip at the top of the cross-section that shows the borehole titles. This new feature solves a problem of scrolling down the logs and losing track of which logs are being displayed. It also eliminates the need to include the log titles within the Striplog Designer and the large offsets that can occur between the log titles and the log body when using vertical exaggerations. + They are now non-modal, meaning that the user may now access the main RockWorks dialog while these programs are running. + The three main work panels within the Stratigraphy Picker and the Lithology Picker are now “dockable”, meaning that they can be detached from the main form by dragging the stippled pattern within their title bars. As a consequence, they can me moved to other screens, resized, etc. When these sub-forms are dragged over the main form, small icons will appear to assist with the repositioning of the sub-forms within the main form. + Clicking on the docked panel within the new Stratigraphy and Lithology picker programs will now undock the panel. + Clicking on the Close button within floating panel will now reset the layout. + A Reset button has been added to the Picker programs to restore the original startup layout. + The Zoom, Vertical Exaggeration, and Decimal Place options within the Picker programs now include spin buttons. + The Zoom, Vertical Exaggeration, and Decimal Place options within the Picker programs are now saved between sessions. + The New button within the Stratigraphy and Lithology picker programs no longer returns the user to the main menu. Instead, the user may now select different boreholes and change other options and resume the process without restarting the process from the main menu. Improvements: Importing a Multi-Table text file into the Borehole Database no longer defaults to Local Meters if the units aren’t specified within the text file. Instead, the program now defaults to the current project units if the units aren’t specified within the text file. The Visible Menus options within the basic license now include the Borehole Manager Map and Strip Log menus. The EZ-Section correlation panels now all use the same min/max values when computing the color scheme. The new Color Legend option now works with I-Data, P-Data, and T-Data EZ-Section correlations. Bug Fixes: The Image Rectify, Image to Map, and other programs that save a raster image to a RockPlot2D diagram now set the corner point coordinates correctly. The Convert Solid to Grid algorithm now calculates the most frequently occuring points correctly. The Solid to GWV (GroundWater Vistas) Zone Matrix output has been fixed. The I-Data Fill options within the 2D Log Designer are now correctly saved. The P-Data Fill options within the 2D Log Designer are now correctly saved. The Utilities | Map | 3D Points program no longer generates a "Could not convert variant ..." error. The Utilities | Hydrology | Flowlines program no longer generates a "Could not convert variant ..." error. Draped images now show the correct colors within RockPlot3D. The State Plane Index map now properly lists Florida zone 903. The Delete View option within RockPlot3D is now visible. Images are now plotted in the correct location when draping a RockPlot3D drawing with Peripheral Images. Creating line or color contours with a faulted grid that contains null values will no longer cause the program to lock-up (infinite loop) when the null nodes correspond with the fault zone.

  8. A user working in AqQA 1.5 experienced missing symbols (which AqQA calls "markers") after a Windows 10 update last week. The "AqQASymbols.ttf" file was not visible in her C:Windows\Fonts\ folder. Re-installing AqQA did not solve the problem. We emailed her a copy of the "AqQASymbols.ttf" file, she saved to her desktop, then right-clicked on the TTF file and selected Install. She was warned that the font already exists, she confirmed the re-install, and the symbols now display in AqQA. It is possible that the Windows update deleted a registry setting which registered the TTF file, thus requiring re-installation of the font.

  9. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website yesterday with the following changes: Improvements: + The program will now “trap” and disable project folder monitoring (DirMon) if the user does not have sufficient rights. + In order to facilitate administrators who are having problems when overriding the data folder, LogPlot will now use the HKCU entry for UsrData – if it exists. Otherwise, LogPlot will read HKLM and look for an tntry like the user Document’s folder and replace whatever is there with the current user. For instance, if the key in HKLM is C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\LogPlot8 Data it will parse it and change it to, for C:\Users\Jim Jackson\Documents\LogPlot8 Data and then save it to HKCU for next time. Note: With Lp8SetNetworkPath an administrator can also set the value to: %UserProfile%\Documents\LogPlot8 Data\ for their users. Bug Fixes: + I-Text is now vertically centered. + I-Text no longer sporadically overplots adjacent entries when automatic offsets are enabled. + Scalebars with a conversion factor no longer draw tick-marks and labels in the wrong direction. + Scalebars with both meters and feet with a stickup above the ground use 0 depth as the origin, not the top of the scalebar. + Text font sizes are no longer being reduced when plotted at high resolutions to avoid long lines from stretching. Now, only the Edit and Static Text font sizes are reduced. + In the LogDesigner, Undoing the deletion of a Header Picture didn't restore the graphic. + In the LogDesigner the location rectangles that were displayed when moving an item were offset when either the vertical or horizontal scroll bars were scrolled.

  12. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today with the following new features, improvements, and bug fixes: New Features: + Bar Graph Value labels can be color-coded based on the values, using an automatic or table-based color scheme (below). + Bar Graph columns and Bar Graph Value columns can link to a new Color Table in the data file of the same name. This table permits you to define minimum and maximum values and the colors to be used to represent them. + The Header Legend for a Bar Graph using a Color Table displays a simple example graphic bar. Improvements: + Improved the appearance of pattern dots when exported to PDF or raster. + Bar Graph Value columns now trigger datasheet creation. Bug Fixes: + The Log Designer paste correctly places items when the receiving section is either scrolled or not scrolled. + Symbols in the header and footer are now drawn at the correct size (consistent with LogPlot7). + Symbols in the compiled log are now drawn at the correct size and are stretched when appropriate. + Fracture line thicknesses are correctly scaled for high resolution output. + The LogView pattern density no longer changes when the output units are set to centimeters + The Lithology Selector window no longer truncates keywords which include punctuation characters. + Blank Edit Text items in the data file no longer display design default text when compiled. + LogPlot7 line break characters in text datasheets ("/*") are now correctly translated to line breaks during import of the DAT file.

  13. Hello David, You can use the Borehole Manager's File | Export tools to generate this listing: + The File | Export | I-Data | I-Data -> Text file (Single Track) generates a text file with Borehole ID; top, base, and mid depths; the XYZ coordinates at top, base, and midpoints; and the G value for a single I-Data column (track). + The File | Export | I-Data -> Utilities Datasheet generates the same listing, displaying it in the Utilities datasheet. + The File | Export | Multiple Tables | Excel lets you choose any / all tables to export; if you activate the "Include XYZ Computations" you'll also get the XYZ points at the interval tops and bases (not midpoints).
