Dear distance users, 
I am new to using distance and I am trying to design a survey, each time I run the design, the survey map is shown but very small at the middle top of the map field as seen below.

I have changed the window display language of my computer from US to UK and either way but still the survey map is not showing full. Also, I have followed the tool option in the distance menu and I have unchecked the ''Store results in compressed format in project database'' under "General" as it was recommended for a similar request when results were not displayed by another distance user. Still no full display of the survey map design. I don't know exactly what to do next regarding this issue.
Please I need help on this from anyone on this platform.
Thanks to whoever is willing to assist. 
Kind regards,
Ambrose Bockarie Kanneh.

I have seen this behaviour before in Distance for Windows.  In my experience, this is associated with the projection (or units) used in the shape file.  Double check that the shape file of your study area is as you expect; open it in QGIS (free GIS software) to check its properties.

Back in Distance for Windows, you can use the zoom feature to magnify the study area map.

As your cursor moves around the map in Distance for Windows, the coordinates under the cursor are displayed in the task bar.  Make sure those coordinates are consistent with your expectations.
