Murray, Thanks for the clarification. I am able to reproduce the problems you see in panel 16 (not 17). Although in your description I believe you leave out a key detail. In step 15 after you click Create Display, you have to go back to the dashboard > Displays Tab > Select "location" View > Display Tab and deselect declutter. Otherwise you don't see the rings. At that point, I can reproduce the problem. There is probably a bug in the IDV here, but there is a simple workaround. Strangely, selecting declutter (again!) will clean up the labels while leaving the rings in place. See the attached figure. Please keep us up-to-date on your progress.
