nope its not been fixed with that build, if i sent you the map file it would
look normal to you because the problem isnt in the map itself. i will send you
this picture of me looking directly at a cylinder - it should be visible in all
3 of the views and you can see the camera is pointing at it in all 3 but its
just not there in the xy!


I think we had similar problem reported already. In all cases it was fixed by
starting from fresh settings with the clean command in the preferences dialog.
As then, I doubt I would be able to reproduce the problem, so it's unlikely that
I could fix unless you bring up more info.


its fixed! i have a dualboot win98 & win2k. by using the clean command it fixes
the problem under win98 but in win2k it doesnt do anything at all. - if you ever
need somebody to test a fix for that let me know, thanx timo :)


This is a known issue. Somehow one of the files is not cleaned up (there's a
.ini for text stuff and a binary file for bin prefs .. prolly the bin one
doesn't get erased)

Prolly not worth looking into it right now .. this pref corruption happens when
upgrading from one ver of Radiant to the other. And the cleaning solution
doesn't work in all cases. Prefs in 1.2 will be fully XML based, so the problem
should go away naturally.
