What's New Version 20.9

Highlights September 2020

Users can temporarily add local resources to a publication by browsing in the resource sidebar or drag and drop the resource. KML resources and all orbit supported formats can be added.

Multiple new settings make it possible to customize the viewer to your own preferences. The left sidebar can be switched with the right viewer menus and the visualization of the footprints can be modified by disabling or setting the smallest scale for the footprints, trajectory and envelope of a mapping resource.

Various updates on the layout of the sidebar menu make the 3DM Viewer easier and cleaner. The three-staged left sidebar makes a full-screen viewer possible.
