RockWorks16 - September 26th, 2013

Recommended Posts

* A new set of programs grouped under the "XYZ->Optimum Path" heading has been added to the Utilities / Survey (Level 2) menu.

* The results from the Utilities / Survey / Downhole and Borehole Manager / Striplogs / Downhole Survey program are now identical.

* Programs that implement g-filters within solid models no longer generate Access Violation errors.

* The RockPlot2D Raster Image options now show the initial dimensions of the image within the clipping window.

* The XYZ Spatial Filter rules now display correctly when a computer is configured for large fonts.
Programs that generate RockPlot2D legends now include an option for setting the background color as well as leaving it transparent. The default is set to white.

* The Samples / Survey_01.rwDat tutorial file has been revamped to address the re-design of the Utilities / Survey / Bearing/Inclination/Distance program.

* Deviated 2D Borehole header symbols and column titles are now plotted correctly when clipped.

* The Cutoff for the Grid to Stratigraphic Model program is now optional (defaults to 0).

* The Reportworks program is now able to embed RockPlot2D files.

* Creating a new project based on an existing project now correctly copies the Project Support Tables.

* Line thicknesses and line styles are now more consistent between the screen display, export to bitmaps, and printing.

* Custom fields within the Borehole Manager tables (e.g. Stratigraphy) are now displayed.

* The Project Folder / Rename Project option now uses "null terminated strings" meaning that it's compatible with UniCode text.

* A new program titled "Cavern Model" has been added to the Utilities / Survey / Bearing\Inclination\Distance program.

* A new program titled "3-D Tubes" has been added to the Utilities / Survey / Bearing\Inclination\Distance program.

* The Utilities / Survey / Bearing\Inclination\Distance program and datasheet input format has been redesigned.

* The error message that appears when an attempt is made to update a blank type within the "Edit as Datasheet" utility has been clarified ("Field contains empty string.")

* The "Edit as Datasheet" utility for borehole database tables now works correctly with SQLServer databases.

* Symbol colors may now be set for polylines independent of the polyline color.

* The log title on clipped non-vertical boreholes is now plotted correctly at the top of the log.

* The Types Tables (I/P/T Data) column display order is now independent from the Order field. If you reset the tab columns it will rebuild the columns by the table Order value. When you manually drag columns around, the Order field is not changed, it is only changed by editing the Order field directly.

* Polyline symbols are now consistently scaled. In the previous verion, the size would vary slightly depending upon the angle of the symbol.

* Polyline labels no longer start at the beginning of the polyline. Instead, they now begin at a distance equal to or greater than the specified label spacing distance. The distance may be greater than the designated spacing if the angularity of the line prevents an asthetically acceptable labeling (i.e. the algorithm will keep moving along the line until it finds a suitable location for the label).

* The Utilities / Grid / Grid -> Profile option has been re-named to "Grid(s) -> Profile" and split into two sub-options; "Single" (identical to the previous Grid -> Profile program), and "Multiple" - a new program

* The Utilities / Grid / Grid -> Profile program has been re-designed to take advantage of the new profile polyline attributes. Specifically, this means that both the grid that is being profiled and the optional Surface Profile have their own sub-menus with independent polyline attributes.

* Two new features has been added to the new Plot Surface Profile menu (see item #247 below)

  • (253) The surface profile polyline may now be labeled (e.g. "Ground Surface").

  • (254) Symbols may now be plotted along the surface profile polyline.

* The results from checking the database integrity for a SQL database are better formatted showing each table on a separate line.

* Simplified the creation of a new project folder that connects to an existing SQLServer database. Before this process was awkward and had a tendency to overwrite the xy projection system.

* The Buffer for the upper and lower filters within the Solid Options dialog is now set as an integer.

* The name of the grid file is now included within the layer name within profile and sections.

* The bounds calculation for rotated text when the vertical exaggeration was not equal to 1 was incorrect when saving to a file. This caused problems with RW2D scaling in ReportWorks.

* The sub-options associated with the Plot Surface Profile (used by all the programs that create profiles and section) have been moved into a new dialog box with embedded instructions. This modification has been made in order add future features to the surface profile without adding additional clutter to the main application menus.

* A new program titled "Compute Origin Lon/Lat For Local Coordinate System" has been added to the Utilities / Coords menu.

* The Stratigraphic model polygon filtering has been extended to work with interior filtering with both complex and concave polygons.

* I-Data, T-Data, and P-Data tracks within the Tree Menu are now refreshed when you switch projects.

* If the symbol or pattern files are not located by the program (i.e. non-standard configuration/installation), the program will use the following logic: The location for the symbol and pattern files will first take what is in the System level ini file. If the location is not set or blank it will use the value (if any) stored in the Registry override HKLM\Software\RockWare\RockWorks16 in RwSymbols or RwPatterns. If the location is still not set or the file is missing, the user will be prompted for a value.

* The Project / Rename command now works correctly.

* The following EarthApps sample datasheets were corrupted (i.e. data columns missing) and have been repaired.

  • Color_Index.rwDat

  • Proportional_Advanced_01.rwDat

  • US_State_Data_01.rwDat

* The Datasheet / View / Optimize Column Widths program now "hardwires" the column labeled "Use" to 24 pixels.
