The process for using these tools has changed slightly: Click the option button, then left click on the curve to choose it. Next, pick points appropriately for the operation (follow instructions on status line). Finally right click and accept. This process can be repeated until finished.
Pick Data - an option has been added to the Group Edit tab in "Pick Options" to compare pick files.
Petrophysics - a problem with curve interpolation to higher frequency curves that was introduced in TerraStation mod 7.237 has been fixed.

Petrophysics - the curve copy utility now permits the use of the closest value, rather than using the average, when copying curves from auxiliary data files.
IMAGELog - a technique for "grabbing" and moving the IMAGELog track header width has been added. Simply grab the area at the top of the track/base of the header region. This option works in sliding header and fixed regular header modes.

IMAGELog - rim numbers can now be turned off in rose diagrams.
Dipmeter Analysis - the "right arrow" option has been returned to the power bar.
Dipmeter Analysis - you now have the option to display a Mohr diagram beneath the Stereonet. Currently located on the Rose tab - Display Mohr Diagram box. Need to define pressure regime parameters.
IMAGELog - an option for "anonymous" depth numbers (XX50, etc) has been added to depth tracks for use with "sensitive" well data.
Data Loading - the auxiliary data loader now can load the type and lab name columns for core data.
LAS Export - a potential crash condition when exporting multi valued curves has been fixed.
Petrophysics - Analysis - Fast Formation Evaluation - there is now a Monte Carlo capability for this module.
Petrophysics - one can now copy a single column from a multi valued curve into another (single valued) curve.
DLIS Export - a user control for the missing data null value has been added when exporting DLIS data.
DLIS Image Loading - a warning is now issued when duplicate incoming "slow" channels, such as duplicate caliper curves, are found.
TS V7.245 18 January, 2012
IMAGELog - comments can now be posted (in comments tracks) from all pick, facies, and lithology files.
General - additional curve sources are now accessible for graphics displays in Petrophysics and Dextr. These curve sources are from the secondary pick, facies, and lithology files.
DLIS Data Loading - the parameter report is now displayed after data loading. This report had been inadvertently removed in recent releases.
TS V7.244 12 January, 2012
General - within table displays, clicking <Ctrl-A> now redisplays the table header.
DLIS Data Loading - a crash condition for some sonic waveform data has been fixed.
Petrophysics - a potential bug in the curve generator function within curve utilities has been corrected.
Petrophysics - an error in the button labels for curves two and three in Abacus Compare has been resolved.
DLIS Data Loading - the mnemonic configuration system for sonic waveform data (blwavfm.v70) has been improved to better support unusual (Weatherford) mnemonic sets.
TS V7.243 4 January, 2012
Data Loading - support has been added for Recall azimuthal GR images.
IMAGELog - line weight control has been added to structural profile and cylinder tracks.
IMAGELog - Lithology/Facies Track - Bar Graphs. Fixed a problem with data range display representation.
General - a problem with TerraStation crashes for long project names has been fixed.
Petrophysics - 'Sequence of Plots' crossplots can now be made to overlay one another. There is an Overlay setting for each plot - Yes or No. Seee the help for more details.
General - an option to standardize US API numbers with or without dashes has been added to the right click menu of Well Data Management (for multiple wells).
Petrophysics - Rockmod - added a single lithology shale option (MINVER = 7). Also speeded up bed boundary processing.

DLIS Data Loading - informational messages are now suppressed during batch data loading operations.
TS V7.242a - 23 December, 2011
This is a patch release containing quick fixes. It is probably not of general interest to most TS users. Changes will be included in the next standard release.
IMAGElog - Lithology/facies- a problem displaying the correct"curve bar" data ranges has been fixed.
Batch DLIS Loading - informational messages are suppressed during batch load operations.
DLIS Loading - the default file name for DLIS load reports has been changed to the form of "filename.rpt".

TS V7.242 - 15 December, 2011
IMAGELog - the "N =" annotation on rose diagram tracks will now be limited by the interval bottom in an effort to improve the display aesthetics.
IMAGELog - a new user preference for controlling the default height of the lithology and facies panel has been added. Clients with lengthy lithology lists may find it convenient to increase this value. This is controlled by the sbi variable lith_edit_ht in userdef.sbi. An option will be added soon for controlling this directly from inside the program.
General - when setting the depth interval using Z variables in single well mode, one can now choose a Z variable list which contains only valid Zs sorted in depth order.
Petrophysics - Merlin - the transition probability matrix option can now use the lithology or facies beds directly.
TS V7.241 - 07 December, 2011
Borehole Imaging - a new option has been added when creating fracture density curves in batch mode. A curve suffix can be specified to help improve later identification of the curves created this way.
IMAGELog - a rare problem with facies track displays where diagonal lines might appear across the fill pattern has been resolved.
Data Loading - the load sequence for DLIS image loading has been simplified. An option has been added which will permit users to expand the depth range of the image while loading if desired.
Petrophysics - a new synthetic curve generator has been added to curve utilities.
TS V7.240 - 30 November, 2011
General - a problem with pattern display when PDF plots are rotated has been resolved.
Borehole Imaging - a new "High Res" option has been added to the smoothing settings for Formation View tracks. This may be useful to reduce sawtooth and blockiness for acceleration corrected data. It is slower.

TS V7.239 - 17 November, 2011

Petrophysics - Equus - the EQUUS curve value calculator now supports the inverse trigonometric functions arccos, arcsin, and arctan.
Petrophysics - Rockmod - speed improvements. Also fixed a potential glitch with the data units of the input Potassium curve, and a possible file locking issue when using IMAGELog and Rockmod together.
Correlation - a problem displaying well images with missing orientation data has been resolved.
