Hi,

Is it possible to get the Irish Ordnance Survey Grid Reference Position to Display with the Prefixed Letter. ie. "C 00123 00123" instead of just the numerical grid.

'Tis the only thing I'm missing. Great program.

Thanks

    Where would you like the extra prefix character displayed? In the status bar cursor readout?

    Thanks,

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, the status bar cursor readout would be fantastic. (and having the dual display grid/latlng is already priceless). Its to relay coordinates to people on the ground/real world with paper maps and it really requires the letter.

    Thanks Again.

    I have updated the coordinate display on the status bar when Irish Grid is the active projection to use the standard tile letter and 5 digits of X and Y. I have placed a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper12.zip with the change for you to try. Simply download that file and extract the contents into your existing v12.xx installation folder to give it a try. If you are using the 64-bit v12 version there is a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper12_64bit.zip .

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
