Hi list,
first of all i want to thank you for giving that great tool to the general public! I tested at least seven Webbased WMS-clients (two commercial). The commercial ones weren't really better, but from the open source ones mapbender is the best! Either they are toys or you have to be a developer to administer them. - Both very unsatisfying! OK, some things could be improved. For example you cannot claim, that the administration is self-explanatory and intuitively useable. But thats OK, sometimes i figure out ;o) (therefore its an expert system). But if comparing the documentation with other open source projects, mapbender is lightjears ahead.

Now to my problems. I found to modules that doesn't work correctly. Maybe still some wrong settings?

1.) measure: when i activate it in the gui, i can do some measuring. Doubleclicking in the map stops measuring. But the buttons in the upper left corner of the mapframe (rubber, infobutton) do not react. That causes, that i cannot clear the last measurements.

2.) printPDF: When i select 72 dpi in the dropdownlist, everything works. The pdf with the mapframe and all layers comes. When i choose 288dpi, no mapframe and only the top layer (last rendered layer) is printed
Is it a missing or wrong setting or even a bug?
I'm using mapbender version 2.4.5 (2008-04-07).
