Defect Corrections

  9. Fixed a typo in the O-Calc LE Collection Configuration plugin menu.
  10. Fixed a typo in the warning message box that pops up when unsupported DPI settings are set.
  11. Removed the ability to substitute a leg of a multipole structure with a segmented pole, segmented poles are not a supported pole type for multipole structure legs.

Known Issues
