Re: [idvusers] 20121026: Color-Shaded Covers Background Maps

I'm having the same problem when I want to plot model 1km AGL simulated
radar reflectivity, with 925mb wind vectors overlaid. The vectors are
buried under the radar reflectivity plot, and neither of those fields allow
me to change the elevation. Turning off "Use 3D View" in preferences fixes
that, but then I end up with the map being buried under everything else,
with no way to change the elevation of the map.


Best Regards,

Robert Dewey
