      "Show Me" shuts down APSRISI32. When I restart it, the ALL is checked.

       

      Best regards,

      Fred

      Also be aware that if you do a "show me", the NWS/All gets checked, be sure to un-check when your done(if you want to).

        Thanks Lynn. Up and running on development ver here, shape files are working
        correctly. I will find the time to read all recent posts before asking any
        stupid questions :>)

        See http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/development-version but please be aware
        that running the bleeding edge is sometimes dangerous. I've been known
        to break things so that it won't even run, but usually I get a fixed
        version out shortly thereafter.

        Also, please plan on keeping up with the postings in this group,
        especially before accepting a new version from About.

        If you're not comfortable renaming files and editing XML files, then
        running the development is probably not a good idea.
