A new version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) was uploaded to the RockWare website on August 30, 2018, with the following changes:


New Features:
+ A new text object, called Anchored Text, has been added to RockPlot2D that consolidates text with a leader line and an optional border that can be filled. The first point entered is the origin and the second point is the position of the top left corner of the text. Move the text and the anchor will stay in place or move the anchor point and the text will stay in place
+ The "Overlay" option in various 2D map dialogs has been changed to "Additional Layers". The program now allows you to place RP2D layers either above or below the new map content. When the setting is for Below the layers are added in reverse order.

+ Added an option to switch Font Quality in RockPlot2D to: Non-Antialiased , Antialiased (default), Clear Type or Clear Type Natural. Clear Type and Clear Type Natural provide better antialiasing then the Windows standard antialiasing.


+ Added an option to "Include disabled rows" in datasheet Column Math
+ Increased precision for the drawing of Stratigraphic Fences
+ Scientific Notation can now be applied to RockPlot3D Color Legends built from tables
+ Eliminated banding in RockPlot3D Stratigraphy Model sides panels.
+ Eliminated jagged edges in RockPlot3D Fence diagrams that require high precision.
+ RockPlot3D Iso-Surfaces are now drawn with more precision to avoid wavy surfaces.
+ The P-Data and I-Data GT Compositing now lets you select a maximum cutoff instead of a minimum cutoff.
+ The Shapefile Exports from RockPlot2D and RockPlot3D now let you select an existing ESRI Projection File (*.prj) to be used with Shapefile.
+ The Borehole Manager and Utilities Borehole Survey program now adds the ability to only display a report for the depths in the survey data
+ The Borehole Survey program now allows the user to create a report at only the depths listed in the orientation data.


+ Lines in the RockPlot3D Reference cage have been thickened so that they display more reliably
+ Surfaces in RockPlot3D weren't calculating normals correctly which caused incorrect lighting artifacts
+ Thin lines in the RockPlot3D Reference Grid would hide at certain viewing angles
+ GT Grade X Thickness program was not clearing the correct tracks
+ Contours in Sections, Profiles and Projected Sections are now drawn correctly
+ The filename edit is sized out of it dialog in Windows 7 using large fonts
+ The ReportWorks border options for the Pattern Legend were displaying on the wrong tab.
+ Plotting gridded 2D Contours generated spurious contours when the G value range was very large.
+ Sieve diagram symbols are now plotted.
+ The Stiffmap diagrams were not being rescaled correctly.
+ The Stratigraphy Picker now prompts for adjustment when the Save button is clicked
+ The Stratigraphy and Lithology Pickers did not display units correctly when using collar elevation
+ The Stratigraphy and Lithology Pickers did not display logs hung from the top correctly when using the collar elevation
+ The Auto-offset now works better in Stiff Map.
+ The extents of a RockPlot3D scene weren't being set correctly when created from Volumetrics/Extract Solids
+ The RW15 to RW17 file converter program's items were rearranged, and now the procedures are correctly called.
