Hi there,

I want to report two bugs regarding the 'special symbols' (immigration, multi culture) in Genomap 2016:


1. All special symbols on all genomaps are transfered to the first genomap on re-opening a saved document.
2. The symbols for 'immigration' and 'multi-culture' are incorrect (swapped icon).


ad 1.)

Steps for recreating the bug:
- Open a new document
- Change to Genomap2, place a apecial symbol anywhere
- Save the document
- Close and reopen it
- The special symbol is not on Genomap2 anymore, instead it is on Genomap1

New document:

On GenoMap2, place one of the special symbols:

Close and reopen it:

Cause of the bug:
By looking into the xml data saved as *.gno file and searching for the special symbol settings

<SpecialSymbols>
<SpecialSymbol ID="SpecialSymbol00001" Symbol="Immigration" Color="#000000">
  <Position z="170">835,-470</Position>
</SpecialSymbol>
[...]


it became clear why all the special symbols are switched to the first genomap of the document:
Only the coordinates of the position of the special symbols are saved, but not the name of the genomap itself.


ad 2.)

According to The MultiCultural Family Institute (see http://stanfield.pbworks.com/f/explaining_genograms.pdf) and/or based on the symbols in the book "Genograms: Assessment and Intervention", the symbol for immigration is the double wave, the symbol for living in multi-cultures is a single wave.

This is exactly the other way round as it is implemented in GenoPro!

Correctly, it would be:

Yes, I can confirm the fix -- the special symbols now remain on their intended genomaps.

Many thanks for the registration key and for the fast bug fixing!
