New Maps Layer Capabilities
A number of new maps layer capabilities have been added. These include:
Placing images allow you to better orientate in your domain, and digitize information from images. Images can be placed in Maps type layers. Since Images are opaque it is recommended that you place images that cover the same area on the screen in different Maps type layers. This will allow you better control of image visibility by using the show/hide layer command and by using the promote demote layer option.
The following seven image formats are supported by Argus ONE
If you try to place a file which contains an image saved in a format other then those supported an alert will be presented.
Text Annotation - System Font
The system-font text annotation tool, a variation of the vector font text annotation tool, uses a system font to present the text. Later versions of Argus ONE will allow you to select the system font from the available fonts installed on your system.
To choose system-font or vector-font annotation text
Creating and editing system-font annotation text
System-font annotation text is created and edited in the same manner as vector-font text. However, system-font annotation text can not be rotated. As a result, all imported text (which might be rotated) is represented using the vector font.
New Look of Post-Processing Objects' Dialogs
All post-processing objects' dialogs have been changed to tab dialogs. All dialogs have two panes. This change was introduced to allow for future panes offering more control of post-processing objects. The two panes available are the Chart pane and the Position pane.
Using Post-Processing Visualization Objects to View Mesh and Grid Data
Post processing objects can plot data directly read from mesh nodes and grid blocks. Thus, to examine mesh and grid data you do not need to first read it into a data type layer. All grid, block, mesh layer and node parameters will be listed in the layer popup menu in the post-processing object dialog.
Smooth Contours in Contour Diagram Objects
Contours created in Contour diagram post-processing objects may be smoothed.

Resizing Objects by Clicking and Dragging
All the objects available in Map type layers are resizable by click-drag.
