I have the same build and version that you do. Steve monitors the
mailing list. Maybe he'll comment on the current version.

Oh, I'm sorry. I guess I expected the lengths to be
on the boundary lines. The lines direction I already
have shown. Just didn't notice the distance right
next to it. :-(
While I'm here - I'm finally working on this program
again after buying it a couple years ago. I have Vs.
3.0, build 25. Are there ever any updates or
improvements to this program? I haven't heard
anything since I purchased it.
I have problems 'relating' a plot to a specific
location so that various changes can automatically
overlap from the same place. I notice that when I
move a deed over another which has some of the same
boundaries the lines become broken and I can release
the mouse to match them up. But if a property isn't
plotted on the exact same angle I can't turn it to
match. Am I making sense?
Is there a way to sort of make a historical 'slide
show' as to how a property changed over time from
the original first available survey to the present?
I would want to overlay subdivision plots one by one
over the original. They way I see the program now I
have to show all plots together or delete what I
don't want to show. There is no way to 'play' them.
Again, does this make sense?
