Does not appear to ignore it on my system???? I tell it to climb, it goes one direction, tell it to go conventional it goes the opposite direction. So it is not ignoring anything.
However, since it is on the line it has no way of determining which way is which so yes, you may need to switch the vector direction or just click the opposite to climb or conventional.
Think about it, YOU are telling the software it is ON the line, how is it supposed to know which way you want to go? Until you declare inside or outside it has no way of knowing. Computers are not that smart contrary to all the blather about "artificial intelligence" now available from a car dealer near you.
