[nbos] [FM8] Patch 1 for Vintyri Symbol Set 1
"Mark Oliva"
Tue Mar 9th, 2010
Some users have reported that the town wall symbols from Vintyri Symbol Set
1 turn invisible on their maps when viewed at certain zoom levels. This
seems to be a design problem in FM8 that affects relatively small symbols
(in pixels). It duplicates in all of our experiments. The threshold seem to
be at a height somewhere between 200 and 300 pixels. To solve this problem,
we enlarged the symbols' frames to 300 pixels but left the content the same
size, turning the inflated areas transparent. That seems to solve the
problem. If you haven't downloaded Symbol Set 1 yet, the full download
version contains the modified symbols. If you already have downloaded SS1,
you can download a small 900 KB patch that will replace the problem symbols
with the modified symbols. The patch is available in the Updates & Errata
box under the Cartographic Collection on our website.

PLEASE NOTE: If you plan to work your way through our free 222-page raster
mapping tutorial, which will be released in the next few days, you must
install this patch. Parts of the tutorial exercises will not work correctly
without it.
