Job Defaults dialog

The General Configuration Options dialog that appears when opening a new or existing drawing has been improved with options to select the drawing's AutoMAP Library file, Feature List File (for GIS data), and Coordinate System.

AutoSave with Survey Database

AutoCAD's AutoSave feature now also saves a copy of the current MicroSurvey database.

Updated Coordinate System Engine

The CS-Map coordinate system engine was updated to provide 100% cross-compatibility between MicroSurvey inCAD and MicroSurvey FieldGenius.

Leica iCON Export

Leica iCON Export - A new Export Leica iCON command is available to export points and linework for use in a Leica iCON project.

Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation Support (Leica DBX Import)

Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation Support (Leica DBX Import) - MicroSurvey inCAD now supports importing Leica DBX projects surveyed with the new Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation.

Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation Support (FieldGenius SyncWizard Import)

MicroSurvey inCAD now supports importing MicroSurvey FieldGenius projects surveyed with the new Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation.

Pentax Import

Import Pentax DC1 Polar, Pentax DC1 Rectangular, Pentax CSV, or Pentax AUX format data files from a Pentax total station.

FieldGenius SyncWizard: Default Folder

The default FieldGenius SyncWizard Import/Export folders have been moved to My Documents\MicroSurvey\SyncWizard\ to make them more easily accessible.

Store & Edit Geodetic Position
Store and Edit the geodetic position (including the Latitude, Longitude, Combined Scale Factor, and Convergence Angle) of grid points using a new dialog with the same look-and-feel as the standard Store and Edit Points command.
Identify Geodetic Position
Identify the geodetic position (including the Latitude, Longitude, Combined Scale Factor, and Convergence Angle) of grid points by clicking in your drawing.
Label Geodetic Position
Label the geodetic position (including the Latitude, Longitude, Combined Scale Factor, and Convergence Angle) of grid points in your drawing, with customizable format and precision options.
Coordinate System Search
Search for appropriate coordinate systems, based on a specified latitude/longitude position, and instantly set it as your drawing's Coordinate System.
Vertical Transformations
All commands that previously allowed a horizontal coordinate system transformation now also support vertical transformations.
Lot Table
Draw a table detailing the lines, arcs and points that define a lot, along with its area and perimeter.
Align Between Drawings
A new Align Between Drawings command is now available for copying and aligning entities between two open drawings.
Auto-Add Points to Objects: Blocks and Text Support
The Auto-Add Points to Objects command now supports Blocks and Text, and will store a point at the Insertion Point of any selected Block or Text entities.
Auto-Add Points to Objects: Graphical Interface
Set the starting point ID and description to use for storing the new points.
Active Coordinate Editor: Select Points by Description
You can now select points by description in the Active Coordinate Editor.
Active Coordinate Editor: Coordinate Systems
You can now view columns showing the Combined Scale Factor, Convergence Angle, Transformed Elevation for each coordinate.
Coordinate Grid Lines: Named Grid Lines
When coordinating grid lines, assign names to each grid line like A,B,C,D,... and 1,2,3,4,... and automatically set the ID or Description of the resulting grid points using the grid line names like A-1,A-2,B-1,B-2,...
2D Draw Mode
A new "2D Draw Mode" System Toggle (in MsTools > MicroSurvey System Toggles, CAD Drawing Controls tab) is now available which causes all points to be drawn at z=0 while maintaining their true elevation in the coordinate database.
Settings Migration Wizard
Easily backup and restore all program settings into a single file, for transferring to another workstation or for disaster recovery.
Drawing Recovery Wizard
When opening a drawing where the expected .msz database file is not opened, the program will alert you and provide several options.
Rescale Drawing Wizard
Easily rescale drawings from one base unit to another.
Scale Text Values
Scale text entity values (standard text, distance labels, or elevation labels) for conversion between different units or with a specified scale factor.
Labeling Defaults: Width Factors
Define text widths for all of the text styles in the MicroSurvey Labeling Defaults.

Google Maps™ Support
View your points in Google Maps by clicking new Map buttons located in both the Single Point Editor and the Active Coordinate Editor.
Google Earth™ Support
Export your points and linework to a .kml or .kmz file and view them in Google Earth. encrypted raw files.
List unused points
The List Unused Points command has a new option to specify a point range for your search. Select MsPoints | List Points (Used and Unused) | List Unused Points, or type LIST_UNUSED at the command line.
Ladder Table Report
Write a ladder table report showing station and offset values for selected points in a ladder format. Select MsTools | Print/Edit/View Reports | Ladder Table from the menus, or type LADDER_TABLE at the command line.
AutoMAP Substitution Codes
Access field-coded parameters directly from your point descriptions and automatically include them in your plotted annotations.
Substitution codes follow the familiar LDD syntax, and include $0 to substitute the code, $1 through $9 to substitute the first through ninth space-delimited parameters following the code, $+ to substitute all parameters following the code, $* to substitute the entire description including the code plus all parameters, and $$ to substitute a literal "$" character.
For example, specify a plotted description like $1 TREE (ht=$2', trunk dia=$3") in AutoMap to dynamically label your TREE points like TREE OAK 9 12and TREE ELM 6 8as OAK TREE (ht=9', trunk dia=12") and ELM TREE (ht=6', trunk dia=8").
AutoMAP Leading Wildcards
Use AutoMap entries with a leading wildcard like *CODE, a trailing wildcard like CODE*, or both a leading and trailing wildcard like *CODE* to make partial matches of your point descriptions.
For example, an AutoMap entry like *IP* will now match points with descriptions like "NW CORNER IP BENT" and you can use the new Substitution Codes described above to produce appropriate plotted descriptions.
Slope Labeling Command
A new Slope Labeling command is available with options to label the % Slope, Degrees from Vertical, or Degrees from Horizontal along a line.
Draworder Wizard
A new Draworder Wizard command is available to help you quickly fix the most common draworder issues, such as moving raster images and hatches to the back of your drawing, and moving wipeouts, blocks and annotations to the front.
