As of this version we no longer support PowerPC (PPC) based Macs. If you are still using a PPC Mac, please do not update to this version - it will not run. Ortelius 1.1.1 supports PPC.
A symbol master can now have an initial scaling value assigned which is applied to each symbol instance initially. The Create/Edit Symbol dialog adds an interface to set this. When a symbol is stamped, this value multiplied by the document prescale value is used to set the initial scale value of the symbol. Defaults to 1.0 so there is no difference by default.
Dragging a symbol from the library manager or palette directly to a mapping layer is now supported.
Block labels (on symbols and shapes) now support direct arbitrary rotation.
Labels attached to shapes are preserved when these are converted to symbols. Symbols created get a copy of the same labels. Symbol preview image now includes any such labels.
Label leader lines are now calculated more intelligently so that user-positioned labels get a sensibly positioned leader line and the same positioning calculation is performed in all label placement modes. This may give very slightly different leader positions for existing maps but should generally be better.
