"Floating" Chart

Hi
I don't usually make a habit of starting of on a forum by starting new topics but this will be the exception.

Anyway using imgkap I made a .kap chart from a png image, everything is perfect except for the fact that the chart is a floating object within it's borders as the screenshots show:

Is this a known problem ?

This chart file is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/052yo9vkqsegjlh/marina.kap

Nicholas...
I have seen this before with imgkap generated charts in case the lat/lon used for calibration were entered wrong - imgkap needs them in upper left corner / lower right corner...

Re: "Floating" chart

thanks for the reply
But then what's odd is that the chart when "unmoved" (like in picture 3) is in exactly the right position (checked by puting cursor on the lights and swapping chart).
How can that be if the imgkap calibration data is wrong ?

The numbers are not wrong, just the calibration points are in wrong order. imgkap should probably warn you in this case.
