There is an important point to make about using the new screenshot maps function in 215a.

I failed to make this clear in the notes. :(

When the embedded browser appears it is important that its zoom setting is set to display images dot-for-dot. Otherwise Templot's size calculations for the screenshot will be wrong.

This is the case when it first appears, but you need to take care not to change it.

To zoom the map, make sure to use the +/- buttons on the map, or click on the map and then use the mouse wheel. That way the web site will receive the wheel activity and adjust the URL accordingly.

Take care not to zoom the entire browser page by clicking off the map -- for example on the header section -- and then using Ctrl+Wheel or the usual browser keyboard shortcuts for zooming. If you do that Templot will not know that you have done it, and the screenshot calculations will be wrong.

If you do that accidentally, pressing Ctrl+0 (zero) should return you to normal, but may not do so if you are using a hi-res monitor at other than 96dpi in your Windows display settings.

All this is important because you could unknowingly create screenshots at the wrong size, and spend a lot of wasted time aligning tracks over them.

I will add a test image which can be displayed to check the zoom setting.

None of the above applies to the tiled maps, which are not screenshots and do not use any browser.

regards,

Martin.
