...here's a newy...

Found a tiny, inconsequential little problem with 2.5 RC3.4...

Ran Design/Inflate on a 164x164 km map (512k mosaic, blah blah blah... nothing too exciting...).

Got as far as the design map then decided that I wanted a map half the size (164x82 km) so I created a new map and ran Design/Inflate again.

Lo and behold, the design map came up like this...

(that's half the old map up top, and the new map down below...)

I refreshed a couple of times with no change, but when I minimised the window (to start writing this post) and went back to check my settings, the map had changed to this...

As I said... tiny and inconsequential, but I figure it does help to know about this stuff...

Hi Doooogle,

Thanks very much for the bug report. It looks like the window's zoom coordinates weren't updated when the map size changed (if you scrolled in and out, I bet it would work). The double-drawing of the first image happened because L3DT doesn't clear the whole window when re-painting; it clears the area around the zoom rectangle to white, then paints the map over that rectangle (this prevents flickering when zooming/panning). This means that if the map doesn't fill the whole zoom rect, you'll see the map that was there previously. Anyway, I'll put this bugfix on the to-do list for v2.5a, as it's probably not a good idea to go upturning the display code this close to a stable release. Thanks again!

Best regards,
Aaron.
