Tie Breaks all say 0.0

I ran a two section tournament and when it became close to having a 4 way tie for the third place trophy I went show player xtab and then I added my custom saved layout with the tie breaks and all four tie breaks showed 0.0 (worked fine for the other section) -- so I tried to redo the layout and still all zeros. What am I missing or is it bug?

Double-click on the section in the Section window to bring up the Add/Edit a Section dialog box, and check to see if the "Use tie breaks" check box (top section of the dialog, right-hand column) is turned on.

If not, turn it on, click on OK to close the box, and then do Section-Update Scores/Standings to recalculate everything. You should now have computed values for the tie breaks.

If the tie break switch was already on, you may want to email us a copy of the tournament file so we can take a look. Send it to

Thanks Tom -- I thought I had done that.
