See detailed System Requirements.
3D Viewer opens with groups expanded only to second-level node
The 3D Viewer will always reopen with data groups expanded only to the second-level node. This avoids having to collapse expanded data groups with many nodes. The 3D tree and the Attributes tab will each occupy 50 percent of the space along the left-hand panel.
Survey Design tool updates
The Survey Design tool includes a number of updates to provide you with more control over your maps. When using a polygon file (*.ply) in Oasis montaj or a shapefile in Geochemistry for ArcGIS, you can specify that the starting point for the first sample in the survey uses a round number. This provides you with more control over the coordinates that are added to the output database and makes it easier for field crew to work with coordinates they need to go to in the field. You can also specify the line increment and set up the line numbers to match the line spacing. You also have the ability to exclude QA/QC samples for Geophysical surveys which don't require them.
Multi-select for GOCAD TSurf import
In the 3D Viewer, you can now save time by importing several GOCAD surfaces at once, so you don't need to import each file separately.
Use Windows proxy settings
The proxy server options were removed from the General and Advanced settings in your Geosoft application. You can now use the Windows system proxy settings for all Geosoft applications.
