  • arrow keys for scrolling

    Hello,

    While I was looking at your problem, I determined that once you click on the Control Center, the arrow keys start being handled by the Control Center.  Clicking on the main view should cause the keys to act on the main view again, but this is not happening.  You can restore the state where the keys will scroll the main view by clicking on another application, then clicking back on Global Mapper.  Not a great workaround, but will at least let you use the arrow keys as you expect until this bug gets fixed.

    I have opened Item #20168 in our task list.  We will post a message on this thread when the status of this item changes.

    Cheers,
    Bob
  • Error setting 3D viewer info

    Hello,

    First, I suggest updating to the latest version of Global Mapper 17 so you can see if this is a problem that has already been fixed.  If the problem persists, you should contact Blue Marble Geographics Support directly via e-mail (geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com).

    Cheers,

    I have added feature request 26599 requesting the ability to create buffers as line features to our task list. We will post a message to this thread when the status changes.

  • Export multiple checked Layers or Groups to separate files

    Hello,

    If you are exporting vector features to a Shapefile, you have the option to split data into separate files by layer name. You provide the base file name and the layer names get appended to it. 

    I suggest that you pass this request along to Blue Marble Support via email (geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com). They will be able to provide more guidance with regard to your options in the current version of Global Mapper, and open a feature request for new functions that you need. Please include a much detail as you can in the description of what you need. Thanks.

    Cheers,
    Bob

  • GENERATE_REPORT output misaligned

    I think the output from the GENERATE_REPORT command is correct. The "B-Vermont" line shows zero points and 322 lines. You said that the Vermont features are all lines, so this makes sense. The "E-Map Points" line shows 641 points and zero lines, which also makes sense. What are you seeing that is incorrect?

    For future reference, if you want post lines from a script on the forum, try using the "Code" formatter. Select the text, then click the paragraph symbol at the top of the area for editing your post, and choose Code from the menu. Here is a sample line from your script:
    EDIT_VECTOR FILENAME="Vermont Trails" COMPARE_STR="<Feature Type>=*" ATTR_VAL="<Mileage>=B-Vermont"
