Thing is, Roland CLAIMS the same problem happened in 2.2 and earlier (Dataman claims it's Ron's code, which implies the problem has been present since AW's inception). However, I didn't see it until AW3. Why, I don't know, especially considering I've been building in AW since June 1997. Regardless, the cell database needs to be rewritten to include 64-bit (I believe) floating point (which will fix the gap problem, and hopefully the seam problem as well) and allow TRUE multi-axis object rotation (not just through an action command).
