Hello,
is there an bug or feature in 1.40d?

- clear data dir
- new data retrieve (albany sources)

-> Temp->Temp deg c
-> Temp->max. Temp 6h deg c
-> Temp->min. Temp 6h deg c
-> Temp->max. Temp 24h deg c
-> Temp->min. Temp 24h deg c

ok, now
- MAP
-> Erase Map

Found the problem! Find the file "digatmos.mnu" in your "C:\Program Files\DigAtmEquinox" folder. Use a text editor (Windows Notepad) and open the file and you will see this:

# The Standard Version is limited to a maximum of 100 menu commands.
# The Professional Version does not have any limits.
#
# Do not create more than 20 main categories
#
# SPECIAL TITLE SUFFIXES
# %1 = Marks the sea-level pressure analysis for tool bar shortcut SLP
# %2 = Marks the temperature (C) analysis for tool bar shortcut DEG C
# %3 = Marks the temperature (F) analysis for tool bar shortcut DEG F
#
Temperature
Temperature (deg C) %2 |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH TEMP
Temperature (deg F) %3 |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH DEGF TEMP
Potential temperature (deg K) |CONT CINT=1 COLOR=200:100:0 DOTS LINE=2 THTA
Wind chill (deg F) |CONT CINT=5 COLOR=0:0:200 DOTS WCHL
Wind chill (deg C) |CONT CINT=5 COLOR=0:0:200 DOTS DEGC WCHL
Max temperature 6 h (deg F) %3 |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH DEGF TX06
Min temperature 6 h (deg F) %3 |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH DEGF TN06
Max temperature 24 h (deg F) %3 |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH DEGF TX24
Min temperature 24 h (deg F) %3 |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH DEGF TN24

Notice the # comment regarding %2 and %3 which is referring to the Deg F and Deg C icons on the task bar. Now look down under the "Temperature" scripts and you will see that the first two entries are referencing the two task bar icons. The problem is that the %2 and %3 have also been added to the "Max" and "Min" temperature scripts. Using the text editor, delete "%2 or %3" and then save the file. It should now look like this:

Temperature
Temperature (deg C) %2 |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH TEMP
Temperature (deg F) %3 |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH DEGF TEMP
Potential temperature (deg K) |CONT CINT=1 COLOR=200:100:0 DOTS LINE=2 THTA
Wind chill (deg F) |CONT CINT=5 COLOR=0:0:200 DOTS WCHL
Wind chill (deg C) |CONT CINT=5 COLOR=0:0:200 DOTS DEGC WCHL
Max temperature 6 h (deg F) |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH DEGF TX06
Max temperature 6 h (deg C) |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH TX06
Min temperature 6 h (deg F) |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH DEGF TN06
Min temperature 6 h (deg C) |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH TN06
Max temperature 24 h (deg F) |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH DEGF TX24
Max temperature 24 h (deg C) |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH TX24
Min temperature 24 h (deg F) |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH DEGF TN24
Min temperature 24 h (deg C) |CONT CINT=2 COLOR=200:0:0 DASH TN24


Tim, another "to do" to add to your patch list.

After posting this comment, I noticed that the program deleted the space between the name of the script and the actual script which makes it confusing. Refer to your original digatmos.mnu file.

Remark,
the file "digatmos.mnu" was not fixed in Digital Atmosphere - v2.01 | Professional.
