I'm not familiar with version 4, but with v5, I've never seen this problem.
Any new Routers and IP subnets will remain on the IP Internet Map as they
are supposed to, but all other objects will be placed on the proper submap.
If you are expecting that Netview will also place routers and IP subnets
into locations you've created, it will not do that - you have to cut & paste
them where you want them. (Basically, the IP Internet IS the proper submap
for routers and subnets in Netview's "mind").
Automatic layout should have nothing to do with this. Netview should always
place the object on the proper submap regardless of the automatic layout

Subject: New Objects appearing on the Map...
In Netview V4.1, when a new object is added to the seedfile, the object
appears on the IP Internet Map (topmost layer of the IP Internet map). It
will not automatically be placed into it's correct submap, Instead I have to
dig down submap by submap and move it there manually.
Does Netview V5.1 solve this and what is the exact relationship between
automatic layout being turned off (so I can customize the map) and new
objects not being placed in their correct submap? I have found no
difference, has anyone else??
Any info appreciated.
