Thanks for the feedback.

You're right about a default matrix, which is nothing like what you  
really want it to be. When you "connect" to the AP400, you should see  
a popup window asking whether you want to synchronise to Document or  
to the hardware (I'm not sure of the exact wording - but something  
like that). Until you have a saved version of your setup, choose the  
hardware rather than document option. The reason is that APWARE has  
no idea of your hardware's configuration the first time it is run.  
After loading the settings from the AP400 (this may take a minute or  
so), the matrix display (and all the other settings) in APWARE will  
change to reflect your actual setup. You can now save your setup (as  
a .psr  site file), so that the next time you start the software and  
load the .psr file, it should show your setup correctly.

OK, we'll look into that.
