Has anyone ever come up with a solution to this? I'm experiencing the same
problem. See .jpg in Customer Files.

Yes . Don't know how to fix it. I think it might have something to do with
previous tweaks?

There were no other tweaks in this case. I started from scratch.

There goes that theory. I have probably never tried to add a trail to the
first tweak.

Ok, I just figured out a workaround for my case. The part I was tweaking was
actually a sub because of the PEMS. I tweaked all the parts separate (but
the same distance) and added the trails to the PEMS. Trails now appear like
I want them.

I usually end up fooling around until I get around it. Sorry I couldn't
help.
