    Thank you Frank for informing your situation.

    Hope Skylum fix this and other problems with windows version soon and bring the Windows version as good as the Mac version.

    I have asked Skylum so many times to produce a bug report and publish it. So far no luck. Not sure why they are so reluctant to do that. I have worked with so many applications. When we receive an application we used to receive a bug report as well. Then it is kept updated and customers were informed of the status and priority given to which bug for fixing and time scale etc. 

    At the moment Skylum priority is with Mac version .
