New map editor issues



New map designer does not allow me to 'edit' current items within graphs to change the item to another sensor if necessary. This was a pretty critical feature to our corporation so will I end up having to downgrade our version to get this feature back?

It seems like the new map designer is much more confusing than the older one and much, much more buggy. If I click between objects too quickly, I have to click off of the sensor I am using and click back on it and start from the beginning or it will show my master probe's statistics rather than the selected sensor. Overall, my opinion is that the new map designer is not in a finished enough state for a build upgrade on a paid product. From forum discussions with others and from phone discussions with my counterpart at other companies using your product, this seems to be the general consensus...

if you want to change a map-object from one sensor to now show a different sensor, then just drag the 'new' sensor onto the object.

best regards.
