Defence Mapping North Arrow and small angles of convergence

Users often have to manually adjust the angle between the arrows showing convergence on the defence north arrow to visually separate them if the calculated convergence value is small. It would be desirable to be able to control the minimum angle of convergence shown on the arrow and a default angle to offset the arrows by if the true value is smaller than this threshold via a configuration option.

Hi Russell

The Defense Mapping TLM North Arrow has configurable properties that can be adjusted to the users needs.  However, this element does have minimum angles as defined in the related mil-spec requirements.  If you need further adjustment, the element can be converted to a graphic and modified manually.  You might also want to create your own element as needed.  More info here...
