None that we have been able to find. It also does not respect PlotRegion 
or other such options.

Works fine on the 20 or so Macs on which we have installed it (some B&W 
Power Mac G3/400's, a dozen beige Power Mac G3/266's, a couple of 
Wallstreet PowerBooks). It is fully rotatable with the one-button mouse. 
My only complaint is that it does not allow us to mess with the figure 
properties, so we have to go back to the hideous 3D Viewpoint Selector.
