Hi Ticker,

yes, thanks, that was the problem. The table width also depends on this and I didn't understand that so far.

Hi Gerd

I'm looking at GPXSee at the moment.

Significant to the problem lots of symbols:

The size of the tab1 offset into the symbol list is the same as the
size of the size (the 1+ bytes after the 8/symbol width), so, if more
than 127, it needs an extra byte.
