Pencil icon overwrites coordinates on cache page

For puzzle caches and multicaches, we can replace the coordinates that are shown on the cache page by the actual coordinates, once we've figured them out. This option is indicated by a pencil icon where the coordinates are shown. In Safari 4.1.3 on an iMac, the pencil overwrites the last digit of the coordinates, making that digit hard to read. For example, here I have trouble seeing if the last digit is 0, 6, 8, or 9:

I think that this is a recent change, but I don't have a screen image from before, so I can't prove that. Anyway, here's how it looks using Firefox 3.6.28; this is what I seem to remember from using Safari before:

I had problems the other day when submitting a cache.

I was told of a location conflict, so I used this 'pencil' area

to relocate my cache....

Please Note this does not NOT update the cache location UNLESS,

EDIT LOCATION is used FIRSTLY !

 

Once a cache is Published, the Pencil Edit works fine.

Its an annoying trap of a bug that needs fixing.

The "Pencil edit" is for each cacher's personal use for setting custom coordinates on any puzzle or multi cache. For example, once you've solved a puzzle and have the final coordinates, you can click the pencil to put in your custom coordinates. Only you can see what you put in here.

 

If, as an owner, you want to update the posted coordinates of your cache, you need to either go into "Edit Listing" and click the "modify your cache coordinates via a log entry" link, or go to "Log your visit", choose "Update Coordinates", and tick "Add a coordinate to this log". If the cache isn't yet published, you can simply go into "Edit listing" and change the coordinates.

 

They're two completely different functions.
