Thanks for the quick fix on the Scales issue!

Possible bug?:
I ran into something interesting tonight on my MacMini 10.14.5, while using AxeEdit 1.06.01 and AxeFX3 firmware 12.11, and don't know for sure if it was like this in earlier AxeEdit versions or not. I have four cabs in a preset, and three are approx. 140mm out of alignment with the first one. I aligned all four on the first positive peak and saved the preset. I opened another preset, then went back to the first. The alignment was not as I saved it. So I again aligned all four, and I captured the screen. I decided to turn off the Solo button on the first two cabs (which is in itself a bit perplexing, as I'd think on the cabs with "Solo" engaged (if any) would sound, and show their waveforms) and everything seemed to stay the same. Then I arbitrarily decided to turn on the Solo button on cab 3 and cab 4, and their waveforms shifted to the right a fair distance. If I turn the Solo buttons off, after the waveforms shifted, they do not shift back.

1. When multiple cabs are used, and one or more have their Solo button engaged, should we see the waveform traces for the one(s) where their Solo button is disengaged?
2. Is there any reason to expect/want the waveform(s) to shift relative to others, if their respective Solo button is engaged?



Edit: Added the preset where the issues occurred.

Auto update for axe edit 1.06.1 keeps crashing when trying to install. After I accept to update the bar states 100% but that's it. Will see if I can find on another page here and try to install.


Update. downloaded it from the download page no problem. Had also tired previously manual install with Axe off and Edit open but no joy. Using firmware 12.11.
