Error description

  • Opening a graphics file created in Amos 21 can re-arrange the
    objects when the end-user switches between the 'Path diagram'
    and the new 'Tables' tab.
    
    This can ruin a customer's effort in organising their objects so
    that it is neat and tidy for them to understand.
    
    This behaviour cannot be replicated on IBM SPSS sample files,
    however, it can be replicated if you create a brand new graphics
    file (*.amw) in Amos 21.
    
    Switching between these tabs should not affect the appearance of
    the Path Diagram.
    

Local fix

  • This has been reported to IBM SPSS development for
    investigation and will be targeted to be resolved in a future
    Fix Pack.
    
    Please refer to the Fix Pack schedule at
    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21599157 for
    information on upcoming Fix Packs.
