Manifold 8

VCREDIST (Visual C++ runtime) is updated to 14.34.31931.0.

Manifold 9

VCREDIST (Visual C++ runtime) is updated to 14.34.31931.0.

LASZIP is updated to 3.5.0. This fixes a small memory leak when reading v3 LAZ files.

SQLITE is updated to 3.40.1. This fixes several obscure bugs and adds some performance optimizations.

Opening a MAP file created by Manifold 8 converts legend / north arrow / scale bar layout frames.

Dropping a component into a layout copies the background color of the component into the created layout frame. Creating a virtual layout for a component using File - Print Preview does the same. (Previously the layout frame was left with transparent background.)

Dropping a component into a layout or creating a virtual layout for a component using File - Print Preview copies grid parameters into the created layout frame.

The Layers pane allows showing and editing legend mode for map layers:

  • full - always legend the layer,
  • short - always legend the layer, reduce thematic formatting to a single sample,
  • auto full - the default, legend the layer if it is currently visible: not turned off explicitly, not in a folder that is turned off explicitly, not hidden due to the current scale,
  • auto short - legend the layer if it is currently visible, reduce thematic formatting to a single sample,
  • none - never legend the layer.

Layout frames with text that is too long to fit into a frame trim text to the first words that fit.

The Legend dialog allows specifying vertical position for the legend in a legend layout frame, the default is center.

The Legend dialog allows specifying separate font and text size for different types of legend items:

  • text - header items for thematic formatting,
  • single - sample items for non-thematic formatting,
  • multiple - sample items for thematic formatting.

The Legend dialog allows specifying text align for each type of legend items, the defaults are: text = right, single = right, multiple = left.

End of list.

Do we need the updates in 9.0.178.Last before moving to 9.0.179.

no, you can go ahead with the 179 point release.

they, i believe, are one and the same with differences in absolute last minute changes and version painting for distribution.

the instructions do say to uninstall the prior versions of manifold. I did this on my upgrade.

Yep. The topics for X.Y.Z.last discuss changes that were added since the last cutting edge build for X.Y.Z and appear in the base build X.Y.Z+1. There is no build named X.Y.Z.last to install, there's only build X.Y.Z+1.

It looked to me that some of the 'last' update included updates external to Manifold - Visual C, LASZIP, etc.

There's a new video that shows these legend capabilities: First Look - Legends in Maps and Layouts.

That's a very helpful video Dimitri. Great to see dynamic legends added and a nice blend of quick legend making and complex legend making. Well done.

Sent in some suggestions to Sales and a possible bug report.
