    I have input my spin measurements in on the "spin Drift" function but it doesn't seem to save in the profile created. I enter it, and select the update button and it's there until I close the program and reopen. This is on my PPC and is the most recent version of exbal.

    I think there is a box to check,that tells it to apply to all your calculations,I think it is somewhere on the page that you entered the spin drift #'s.I don't have mine handy,but I think there is a box you can check,or uncheck.

    I would just use LoadBase 3.0; when conditions change big time you enter the new conditions and.... Run the program, get the new value and... you're done. You don't have to shoot again and again. JMHO.

    I did check the box to use the spin data in my drop chart, but it doesn't save. I also have an issue with using the file made on my PPC on my PC when I open it and try to use any function it crashes. This happen on both my desk top PS and laptop.

    I'd love to "just use LoadBase" but I just got exbal. When I purchased 3.0 wasen't out yet. I'd like to see a comparison between these two and Field firing solutions.

    Does load base save the spin data for future use, save site in conditions, and allow multiple wind vectors?

    What are the rules for selling software?

    I'm gonna send Mr. Perry an email and see what he says.

    I just got a reply from Gerald. He mentioned that the files from PPC to PC are incompatible. In other works you can't download the file from your PPC and used it on your PC and vice verse.

    Is this the same on Patagonia?

    Got an answer on my drift dilemma. Exbal will not save the spin data to the profile you create. So, if you want to use that data you must re enter it every time you open the program. That's not how I though it would work.

    Does Patagonia overcome these issues?

    I'm thinkin of selling Exbal and trying Patigonia or FFS.
