    Axe-Edit III 1.01.07

    I'm having problems with this version on Win10. It appears it's not playing nice with Windows 10's DPI scaling on external monitors as it's impossible to click on menu selections under certain circumstances (such as picking a block, or choosing an amp from the amp block).
