Okay, Karl is faster than me at finding this (or at least reporting it,
assuming this is referring to the same problem I saw) and way faster at
fixing by an order of magnitude of 0/(34 minutes).
So IF I understand Offset correctly it is the offset of the grid from the
The interface is very "Bret Victorish" (without the visible sliders). But
it would be nice to be able to enter the #'s as getting to 0 at 0, can be a
Also why is Offset off, when course grid is on?
Also, let me know how to get this fix so I can test.
A .cs or update code from server when ready is best.
Thanks for all your efforts,
