VI. Graphics limitations

Magnification of raster maps over 14 is not supported. (Note this is the limitation namely of OS but not GPSMapEdit itself). Higher stretching will lead the program to output a gray rectangle instead.


VII. Taking photo limitations

These limitations are applied to the function "Take Photo" of the window "Camera View":

On taking photo as bookmark attribute (e.g. type "File Link/Photo"), it is possible to use a camera compatible with Windows Image Acquisition.
