Problems with map zoom function and the scrolling

Hi.
While playing with the new PathAway 5 I noticed that there is a problem with the zoom function of the maps.
I have a set of maps that covers the whole area of Greece, general and detailed, some of them in GGRS87 and the rest in WGS84. The maps that generally cover the area (the "wider" ones) and also the most of the detailed ones are in GGRS87. The rest of the detailed ones are in WGS84. I also have defined as primary coordinates the GGRS87 and as secondary the WGS84.
In many cases, while I review a GGRS87 map and I tap the zoom button to see what other maps are available for the specific area, I see some WGS84 detailed maps that are in a completely wrong position (in fact the area that these maps present is hundreds kilometers away from the point that I am currently reviewing). Also, these misplaced maps are first in the list in the zoom menu, meaning (wrongly) that they are the widest (the most general) of all in the list (they are signed with "(-)" in the left of their names, while the real widest one is in a lower place in the list).
Finally, there is also a problem with the map scrolling. Sometimes when I drag a map, the display is being corrupted and needs another drag movement to restore it.
The same maps where used in the PathAway 4, without any problems. Also, in my machine I have installed PathAway V5 among with V4, using the same set of maps.

Is there anything new about this problem?

Please try the latest build and let me know if you still have a problem. We have not been able to reproduce this.

Hello and happy new year. I tried the latest build today (V5.00.27) and I have the same problems. Here is what I noticed:
First of all, the problem with the map scrolling still exists. Sometimes, especially when I have zoomed out a map, when I try to scroll it, the display presents a part of the map (the part that was already displayed before the scrolling and not the new part that it would be displayed after the scrolling) and needs one more scroll to display the map completely.
And now about the problem with the zoom: as I have already wrote, I have a set of maps, belonging to datum EGSA87 and some other belonging to datum WGS84. The main ("global") one, that covers the whole area of Greece, is EGSA87. I noticed that when there is, in a specific area of Greece, a detailed WGS84 map, among with other EGSA87 detailed maps for the same area, this WGS84 map has two problems in displaying: first, it is not in the correct order in the zoom menu list and seems to be the most "global" of all (even from the main map of Greece). Second, when I select this map for display, it is placed many km away from the position that the other EGSA87 maps in the same zoom list report (e.g. seems to be wrongly calibrated).
I remind you that the above two problems (with the scrolling and the zoom list) do not exist with the Pathaway V4.

That's for now. Thank you for your support.
