Known Issues

  • In the original build (02) drawing Area takeoff near the Image Window's boundaries causes the takeoff object to close or cancel rather than panning the image.   As of 12/7/2016, On Center has posted an updated installer (build 15) and this issue is resolved.  Build 02 is rescinded.
