Well, that is definitely not what I am seeing.
With the + showing, after clicking somewhere in the plot display, at the
lower margin of the window are fields labeled as follows (when I hover
the mouse over them), from the left:
Press F1 for Help (appears without hovering), "Date", "From",
The "Date" field is empty, as is the "From" field. The "To"
contains the current direction and distance, and the "Scale" field
contains ".767 mi (24".
I can reset the + cursor only by going to the hand cursor first. After
doing this, the "Date", "From", "To", fields are empty, and
field shows "2000 ft (1". The fields stay the same until I click the +
cursor somewhere in the plot view window, at which point the "To" field
shows the current direction and distance from the click point, and the
"Scale" field still shows "2000 ft (1".
Maybe there is a way to reset things to make them behave right?
Thanks for the reply,
