Use "attributes" to expand Automap (GIS style for drawing symbols)
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:
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 could be used to modify the symbol.

This is now complete. The description in the release notes:
Leica DBX Import Point Attributes
Point attributes are now imported from Leica Viva/Captivate DBX projects via the DBXIN command.
Attribute data is viewable via the Attributes button on the Single Point Editor dialog or the Attributes column in the Active Coordinate Editor window.
