SIMION 8.0 Issues/Bugs/Enhancements

Filter issues by query:
Issue I477 [80,recording,resolved]
  Precision ignored if width is zero in data recording.

  Under all versions of SIMION 7.0/8.0, the following works as
  specified in the manual: "Setting BOTH width and precision to zero
  gives variable [widths/precision] under program control" (p.8-25
  (7.0) or section 8.6.7 (8.0)).

  However, if width is zero (default) and precision is non-zero, the
  behevior depends on version:

    Prior to 8.0.5-TEST3, this causes variable widths/precision,
    (which might be unexpected).

    As of 8.0.5-TEST3, this causes the non-zero precision to be used
    (which is likely more as expected).

  This change likely has very little effect on compatibility since the
  old behavior was undefined, unexpected, not the default setting,
  and not the normal way of defining variable precision/width.
