Re: Missing zone segments


Hi Seth,

The old method consisted of two hard-coded values, regardless of radius.  It was replaced with a geometric algorithm which calculates the number of segments to use given a particular radius and acceptable error.  We may need to adjust the error parameter a bit.

(But the change doesn’t have anything to do with the new dialog layout.)
