[nbos] [FM] HELP Map resizing
"Joe Frazier, Jr"
Tue Jul 17th, 2007
I believe I may have discovered a bug in FM8. I have a map I created
in FM 7 and I wanted to change the background color, so I went to
Map->Map Setup and changed the color. When I did this over the
weekend, I noticed that the map appeared to zoom in, so I zoomed out or
whatever and it then seem to appear normally.

Anyway, I finally went back to my Map setup and the dimissions are all
messed up. My original map was 1400 miles high by 1088 or so wide.
I also made a few new test maps and what appears to be happening is that
when you enter a number in the Height field and click ok, the value from
the width field is then being made the NEW height and the width is
recalculated to some ration of the new height.

In my example, for my original map, my values were:
H: 1400
W: 1088

new values after clicking Ok:
W: 845

If I go back into Map Setup again (not changing anything) it changes to:
H: 845
W: 657

While I can (I assume) get around this temporarily by setting the
background via script), it would be great if there was a fix forthcoming.
