Hello everybody,

I’ve the following problems:

Entering -1 for longitude in the field “Jump to Location” (Status Bar) and any number for latitude the cursor always jumps to coordinate (0, latitude). Using i.e. -2 works properly.

This happens using as well the Status Bar as using “Multiple Coord Sys”-Tool.

Second  problem:

Drawing a line, that crosses longitude 180° E/W the program works not properly. A line, surrounding the globe, is shown. So it’s also not possible to draw a circle exactly around north- or southpole.

The bug makes the world country lines (Data Library-> Countries) drawing great circles, i.e. near the northpole.

Any idea?

Thanks for your help

Best wishes from Germany

Hello Geo423,

for the coordinate issue you mentioned, I confirm that I could reproduce it on my side and will report it as a bug, however in TE ver 6.6.1 when I try long -1 from "multiple coordinate systems", it works perfectly,
you might be using an old version of TE.

the line surrounding the globe is a known bug we had with TE 6.5.1, it was fixed in the 6.6.1 version what makes me believe you have the older ver of TE. 
if you are using ver 6.6.1 make sure the altitude method of your line is set to "On terrain".

you can upgrade your TE fro here: http://www.skylineglobe.com/SkylineGlobe/corporate/Download/Upgrade.aspx

Best Regards,
