I am a long-time user of the Working Model software, dating all the way back to its initial offering 30-some years ago. I have always been very pleased with the simpleness of the simulation setups and the powerfulness of what it can do. In the last month or so, Working Model has started behaving in an odd way, unlike what I have seen in my years of using the application. When a component, such as a motor, is placed on an object, it displays the motor offset in both the vertical and horizontal directions from its actual location. WM knows that the motor is in the correct position as it shows the body rotating about that point, it is only the VIEW of the simulation that shows the offset. This offset is quite distracting when showing the simulation results. 

The only thing of which I am aware that has changed in the last month is the version of Parallels that I use in the Windows emulator for my Mac. Have I inadvertently changed a setting in Working Model that is creating this offset? 

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
