Multiple Style Override reduces layer list complexity by reducing the number of layers necessary to create a map. With multiple zoom-dependent display styles per layer, there is no need to add the same layer multiple times to get a different look in different zoom levels. Multiple zoom-dependent labels eliminate the need to add the same layer multiple times, in order to get different labels.
Plus, with stacked styles–not possible until now–you will have the ability to compose new point, line and region styles by combining base styles together, giving you new and powerful ways to style the map.
The new Open Tables Window saves time previously spent on searching, opening, closing and operating tables. Now you are able to interact with all open tables from a single, dockable window, so you can quickly find and act on the right table(s). Modeless Dialog provides easy access. Convenient right-click access easily opens frequently used operations such as ‘close’ or ‘browse’ tables. The ability to sort tables by name or type means that you can find the table you need in less time. Drag tables from Explorer to the Table List window quickly, in a familiar Windows standard. And, add any layer to any map faster than ever before, by dragging tables from the list into the mapper to quickly add data to any map.
