Mission Building Bug Found

[Sorry tried to post this in mission building but dont have access atm]

For those that are inclined to build missions, I have found a bug that might effect you if you need to fly your mission to certain times in order to work. This includes flying to carrot or putting in events that require flights to be in certain places at certain times for a mission to work.

The bug is this:
If you change a "Hold" type point into "Nav" point, the holding duration is not nulled. I.e. It keeps the hold time in place which will ruin your ToT calculations and/or cause players to be ahead of a location you expected them to be if they ignore the hold timings.

The fix:
a) Delete the offending hold steerpoint
b) Set hold duration to zero prior to change it into "Nav" type.

Past experience suggests deletion is the only one that will guarantee success option b didnt work for me.

Thus, it is not a "bug" and never was. The error is in front of the screen. ;)

Not starting a tit for tat, but Dee Jay called it a bug and is putting a tracker on it.
