CDS2 (traverse)

When doing a traverse network listings always had north, then east in the order. Now if in metric order is east, north and if in imperial (eg US) still comes out north, east.

Attributes (still being implemented)
CDS now allows you to add in user defined attributes that are associated with each point in the database. These attributes can be integers, doubles or strings.
At present only way to get attributes into CDS is via variable ascii import. The variable ascii import has a new import type of attribute. Enter the attribute name, type and hit "attribute end" button to associate it with the column being added in.
Once attributes are in, you can view them via query dialog. ie question mark or right click on a point. Then click on the "extra attributes" button when query dialog is active. The attributes are shown in a new dialog. At present they are not edittable.
You can also display on screen via modes button (via layers not done yet)
You can print. From plot parameters tick the attributes data. (at present can only print all or none of the attributes)
You can export to dwg. As either an attribute associated with point symbol block or as text to layer with same name as the attribute name.
More updates on this coming.

When renaming a string - either folder or ID name. If there was associated road data with it then this could become lost. It now is associated with the renamed string.
