  • Hmm. That's what I was doing, but nothing happened. Let me try it again, now... OK, the mouse wheel - well, in my case, since I'm using a touch pad, the little stripe on the right side - makes the Sector View zoom in to expand the sector. S…
  • Well, now that I've taken a gander at the Edit Surface Map dialog, I see that it is far more complex than what I'm trying to get. Basically, I just want to change the low altitude color and the high altitude color, with the system creating the pr…
  • That'll woik...
  • The only problem with using FT over the native surface generator is that FT's coloring is more informative than naturalistic. I've used Terraformer to create some nice systems, but that is a manual process, as far as I know. So, I went back to AS's …
  • I found a compilation of the e2000 Hipparcos, Yale and Gleise catalogs that has about 120,000 stars with their proper motions. So, I set my campaign date, use Access to determine the XYZ coordinates and adjust those using the proper motions of each …
  • Scratch that. I just noticed that my code doesn't initialize the iSTRnSIZ variable with the values of txtSTR or txtSIZ. Now, it works! Eureka! Or, is that Mereka? Ha! I slay me... Thanks for your help, Ed.
  • Ah, well, that'll make a difference. OK, I've changed the variable declarations to "var" and now, it runs with no errors, but the Damage Bonus field won't update when I enter the stats for STR and SIZ. I'll have to go over the help file to see…
  • I think so, but I'll check that out...
  • Ah! You passed the test! Why - ahem - of course, I knew that. Why, everyone knows about the context menu. I mean really... Sheepishly he says - I really did look at the context menu before I posted ... I never saw it...
  • I've also got a problem with adding PDFs. I get an error about the browser requiring reader version 8 or 9. The PDF appears in the tree, but nothing comes up. I deleted the PDF and tried reattaching it so that I could get the error text, but no e…
  • OK, never mind about my problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled IP and Keep and now it works.
  • I'm having a similar problem, but my IP Pro is registered in the registry. I installed The Keep into a flash drive, and I'm wondering if perhaps Keep requires that it be installed to the same directory as IP in order to find the files. If so, …
  • OK, a little more on the "Search within" tool. It seems to only work if the host body is a star. Well, that's not entirely true; actually, it's more that it does not work if the host is a Marker. I had to change the body type to a Star, before it…
  • Hmm... I thought I had tried that, but it killed the planet, too. I'll give it another go. Thanx!
