I am sure we have talked about this before, but I keep having to do this over and over again. Maybe it has been changed or added and I don't know it, but the ability to inverse from point to point using the map screen option and you zoom in and pick the first point then, then you go in for the second point and it has zoomed out to 20 miles. I need to know how to stop this if possible. Along that same line when opening a project for the first time the default zoom should be extents of the project not 20 mile out.

Did you say outer limits?;)

There is nothing wrong with your Triumph LS. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image; make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your Triumph LS. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to the outer limits.

There is a passion in the human heart which is called aspiration. It flares with a noble flame and by its light, Man has traveled from the caves of darkness to the darkness of outer space.

Greg the simplest way to do an inverse on the map screen is to draw a line on the map screen. The bearing and distance between the points is displayed at the top and the zoom level does not change. You can hit cancel if you don't want to complete drawing the line.
