Exported bitmap with ESRI-word file

Condes have a nice function to export the map/courses as bitmap in various formats. I recently noticed that also a world file is created for the bitmap (ESRI type of world file), which is great.

I have experienced that the upper left corner definition in the world file is wrong, and do not correspond to the upper left corner of the bitmap. The error is not huge, it is approximately 70 meter East, and 665 meter north. As a double-check, when exporting an XML-file in IOF version 3.0, the coordinates of the controls are exactly correct.
Also I noticed, if I make a bitmap export of just a small part of the map, with not the same "upper left corner" as the complete map, still the World file is exactly the same.

The background map is in OCAD 10, and have proper horizontal and vertical offset defined in meter.

This is not a critical function for me. I just noticed the created Word-file, and start to try how I could make benefit of that functionality, when I experienced the coordinate error in the World-file.

Hi Per-Erik

Many thanks for your feedback. The world file offset issue will be fixed in the next release.
