Version: 3.7.0
Developer is super responsive to updating the products and making suggestions. I asked about having the ability to drag and drop CGATS files into the product for averaging because I often have to do this with many files. One at a time? Too much work. Within about two weeks of the request, the dot release had this useful new functionality. I can’t use ProfileMaker’s MeasureTool any more thanks to Lion, PatchTool provides Intel Native support that now allows me to do a lot of work I had to do in MT.
