Sandy Knoll Software’s Metes and Bounds 1.4.1 is now available. Metes and Bounds is a Mac OS X land mapping or plotting applications that turns metes and bounds data into a plot map. Genealogists might be able to us it for plotting cemeteries, homesteads, other locations or items of geographical interest, etc. Version 1.4.0 was released in January and for some reason we missed it.
Changes in 1.4.1:
* Added the decimal angle to degree converter.
* Improved manual data entry.
* New help system.
Changes in 1.4.0:
* Added the ability to show endpoints on the drawing.
* Added the ability to edit a call, instead of just adding and deleting one.
* Can now have the plot show lengths and area in meters.
* Can now show line lengths in any measurement type instead of just in feet.
* Added a conversion calculator that will convert between any of the measurement types that the software supports.
* Labels can now be rotated 90,180 and 270 degrees.
* Added the ability to calculate the perimeter.
* Added the ability to show a picture as the background of a drawing.
* Added a menu option for showing the (x,y) coordinates of each point, with POB as (0,0).
* Added the ability to enter distance as links (1 link = .66 feet).
* The main drawing window now supports Contextual Menus.
* When exporting to DXF, the resulting output is no longer a mirror image of what is drawn on the screen.
* Fixed a crash that would occur if there was only 1 line and the auto-complete and show length boxes were both checked.
