    1. Projection files saved and imported
      • A projection file (.prj) is saved whenever a geometric object (TIN, mesh, borhole etc) is exported to a file. GMS will also look for a corresponding .prj file whenever a file is opened if the current projection is local. If one is found, it is opened and the current projection is set to the information in the file. This is a precursor to full project-on-the-fly which is in the works.
