Overlay Control Center - Reload

Hi there! new to the forum, but have been using GM for a few years now.....

sorry in advance if this has been mentioned before!

I use GM as a design tool with satellite imagery, maps, dems and Autocad files, alternating between GM and Acad frequently.
I was wondering if a 'Reload' could be incorporated for vector files within the Overlay Control Center

for example if you are constantly updating Autocad files and loading them into GM to view them on top of the imagery etc. you have to 'close overlay' and then 'open data files' and search for them each time.

It would be less hassle if you could just say right click that file within the control center and 'Reload' the latest version of that file.

Hope this makes sense

    Was anything like this ever implemented?  If so how do I do it and can it work with raster images as well?  I don't see anything for refresh or reload when right clicking in the overlay control center as of version 15.  Thanks.

    This has not been implemented as of Global Mapper 17.1.  I have added your name to the feature request.

    Your Name has been added as well.  FYI...the feature request is #13935.
  • Hi all, 

    Still not implemented? I'm using V.20 & didn't find how to refresh layers modified externally.

    This is so helpful during map layout process using ArcMap (and Autocad as well), even without a refresh/reload/redraw button.

    Still not implemented. I have added your information to the feature request -- more user requests equals higher priority, so perhaps this will help get this feature moved up in the list.

    Cheers,

    +1 for this. Using an externally created KMZ file to track vehicles and would like it to auto refresh at a predefined period.
