Projects crashing when opened in 7.4

We have discovered an error with our updated layer renderer (in iGIS 7.4) that affects large projects with more than 10 layers.

If you have been experiencing crashes when attempting to open a project, it is likely that this is the cause.

We will be submitting a new update to the AppStore to be available as soon as possible.

In the mean time, you may be able to get up and running again by deleting some layers from your project in the project settings menu.  You could then create a number of smaller projects.

Once the update has been installed, add the removed layers to your existing project, and you shouldn’t notice any performance degradation or crashing.

We apologise for the inconvenience and appreciate your ongoing support.

 

Thanks,

The Geometry Team.

 

What field types are supported for iGIS *.glc files?

When the iGIS WiFi import page tool is used to create a *,glc file for shapefile data, each field will be described as one of the below types;

<field-type>String</field-type>

<field-type>Integer</field-type>

<field-type>Float</field-type>

<field-type>Date</field-type>

<field-type>Boolean</field-type>

iGIS also supports a number of special field types which can be used to replace these default types. When special types are defined the application will auto populate values on feature creation/edit.

<field-type>CodeList</field-type> -

<field-type>Date</field-type>

<field-type>AutoIncrement</field-type>

<field-type>Status</field-type>

<field-type>GUID</field-type>

<field-type>Area</field-type>

<field-type>Length</field-type>
