TS V7.389 - 4 November, 2015

TerraStation Version 7.389 - 4 November, 2015

IMAGELog - the legend for symbol curves has been improved to be less dependent on track width.

Mapping - the position of the scale bar on a map can now be adjusted vertically.

DLIS Writer - mnemonic handling between TA and TT image output has been improved.

DLIS Loader - the program attempts to make a better selection of slow channel data when loading Dual OBMI data.
