  2. If CSF and convergence are turned off and not displayed in the active coordinate editor, don't include those columns in copy and paste functionality.

  3. Bring back the ability to switch between decimals degrees and DMS for lat/long coordinates in the active coordinate editor. It's a PITA to have to change the drawing units in order to see decimal degrees. Single checkbox functionality was in 2010. We moved to 2018 and lost it.

  4. Our Leica data collectors (and I suspect all modern collectors) have the ability to define multiple attributes for a line or point. Currently these attributes are not even imported when I bring in a DBX file.

    An example: A code tree could have the following attributes:
    Species
    Trunk Diameter
    Canopy Diameter
    Health with choice-list: (Dead, Nearly Dead, sick, good, excellent)

    With the above data, I may choose to show all my trees with trunks and diameters drawn to scale with no annotation. Or I could colour-code by "health". Or I could add a text label with the species. Each attribute…

    This feature is not entirely finished and was incorrectly set to “completed.” We can import attributes from Captivate now, but we can’t label them yet which was the main point of the feature request. The labeling part is being planned and will be included soon. We are looking for sample files, so if you have any Captivate projects with features and attributes that we could use for testing, please send it to our product manager Jeran.

  7. Would want / need the PDF underlay feature to use / insert as vectorial.
    When I get from a colleague working with autocad that inserts that item, in microsurvey (maybe because of intellicad) It is interpreted as a photograph with backgound and all.

  9. Allow users to be able to drag drawing tabs to adjoining monitors such that multiple drawings can be displayed on different screens from the same instance of Microsurvey.

  10. Ability to print out a drawing a PDF with the ability to select and deselect layers in the resulting PDF, similar to what Civil 3D has.

  11. Gives us the flexibility of Exporting GIS Attributes from MSCAD to spreadsheet.
    This should include the option to calculate coordinates for centroid of closed polygons. It should also allow us to annotate that centroid with an ID. In other words, we should be able to annotate and calculate for coordinates of the central points for closed polygons.

    This will eliminate the use of other programs for same purpose.

  13. When opening Native AutoCAD 2018 drawings get the notice that it needs to convert to 2013 version and xrefs version.
    would like to work in true 2018 version so avoid some glitches.

  14. the ipn labels are not layer controlled.when setting points on different layers, and turning on the ipn's, (ipn, ipd & ipe), it would be nice to see only the ipn labels for the points that are thawed rather than all points in the drawing file

  18. Migration wizard at the moment does not carry forward items found under "tools-customize" such as specific keyboard shortcuts and alias commands.

    If these are exported manually and imported into a newer version they are still not properly read and do not work (Tried and failed going from 2016 to 2017). The only fix is manually re-typing any changes that were made in the previous version.

    Please improve the migration wizard to include the currently set alias and keyboard listings.

  19. Give InCAD/MSCad the ability to link mulitple dwg files to one (1) single point database. This is similar to the LDD concept of many dwgs, one point database. MSCad works great for small jobs, but as soon as you get into a big project, point management becomes a nightmare and it hurts productivity. This would solve that problem.

  20. Add a command to break an object on one point with one command
    like autocad
    also add a command to break all crossing objects or break all crossing objects with one object I found a some lsp routines that work on autocado but not on microsurvey that are great

    this is the data from the readme

    BreakAll + BreakObjects

    by Charles Alan Butler (@ theSwamp.org)

    Break intersecting objects in AutoCAD

    Load the LSP file with APPLOAD and start the
    "break
    __" command (myBreak, BreakAll...)

    BreakObjects21.lsp: the latest version

    BreakAll.lsp: the older (original) version
