Export Bug in 4.x versions
« on: March 11, 2011, 07:07:34 AM »
This is an odd bug. When exporting an image to a file, if the total tile memory size is high enough (presumably depending on the video card) then the trail line and grid lines (if checked) will not be drawn to the image file. This is easiest to see when the view is of a large area and Shrink Lower Maps radio is selected. When the bug happens it doesn't matter if a smaller Width and Height are entered.

Probably related to this problem, sometimes when the Use current radio is selected the exported file will contain higher resolution tiles than what's on the screen.

I run a high resolution screen (2048x1536) at 32 bits and this might contribute to the frequency that I see this bug. It's quite annoying because once it happens you don't know what smaller view is necessary to get rid of it and there are a number of iterations of exporting and opening the files. Not good when running out the door! ; )

This does appear to be a new bug that has come up.  I have noticed it, not with grids disappearing, but with tracklogs and WPs themselves going away.  Rest assured I will get it fixed, it's been driving me crazy too.

Many thanks for the report.

I *think* I got this one fixed for now, but it's still perplexing me a bit.  LMK if you still notice it.  Thanks.
