Some of us are extremely busy given the time of year and others just got hit
by a big ass storm called Sandy.



You'll likely find it picks up later on in the week or the like people will
likely be back about but they can't exactly help the effects of mother
nature.

Because you have to actually Save the map out to HDD. That's what I do
anyway. I don't believe there is a way to get the image to save back to the
database in this case (Ed can correct me if I'm wrong).

Will have a look never really noticed it.

Delete it and recreate it.. is the only way I know of it's mainly because
routes are so easy to make anyway.

Compile up a list and send it to Ed at the support email, or post it to the
list those of us who beta tested did our best to try and find a lot of the
bugs as we where testing etc but even I've found some after the fact simply
because at the time of the beta the project I was working on was smaller
than the current one etc.
