    Wally,  we recently upgraded to the 6.0 software and when scanning a full-arch in the pattern outlined and then generating the proposal, the anterior gingival tissue is attached to ghost data/tissue covering the facial area.    It doesn’t show up on the ICE view or in the scan view, it’s not until we generate in the model view that it shows up.  This is problem because we’re trying to integrate Romexis implant planning software and the extra data in front is preventing the proper stitching.  I’ll take a screenshot here soon and send it you’re way.   We tried both full-arch and segmented full-arch and it keeps happening.  Any advice?

    Bill would have to see the shot. We have romexis  6 and this is working for us.
