MS 2013 now imports a Leica DBX file. When I use the import routine it coordinates the traverse before openning the traverse editor and allowing the user to view and edit the raw file. There are several advanatges to editing the raw data before coordinates are generated. Has anyone found a way to do this using Leica DBX files?

Actually it isn't coordinating the traverse automatically. What it is doing is importing the coordinates from the DBX first, and then imports your measurements into the traverse file. If you want to recoordinate your traverse you have to do that manually form the Traverse Coordinate Editor.
Before importing any raw data, I find it useful to confirm that the raw data corresonds to the field notes. For example, I can open a TDS raw file using a text editor and quickly see enough information to confirm whether the raw file has the correct date and field crew etc. Currently when I use Leica DBX files, I create a new MS drawing and import the DBX file to confirm that I have the correct data. Perhaps Microsurvey could provide the user with a DBX viewer to preview the data before importing the information into the drawing?
