Re: [idvusers] Can one change units on range rings special display?

Hi Don, et al.:

I am happy to report that the most recent nightly build of IDV 4.0 indeed does 
allow range rings to be displayed in units other than km, as set by the user in 
the general preferences --> formats & data window.  Thanks!

--Kevin

Kevin-

In tomorrow's nightly build, the range rings will use the distance unit set in 
the general view preferences as the default unit.  Unfortunately, attempts to 
allow the user to set the units interactively ran into problems with the label 
sizing which is a difficult nut to crack.  The pieces are all there to do that, 
but someone other than me needs to work on the label scaling problem.

Hopefully this stop gap solution will work in most cases.
