I have a floor plan that is one building, but half of it is called M and the other half N. Thankfully, the left side is N and the right side is M. I uploaded the entire floor plan, and then just selected the area I wanted to keep. N and M are two floors, and I did the above for both floors of M and N, keeping them separate from each other, they are their own floor plan.
I then sized it and painstakingly drew all the various walls, doors and windows. Then i assigned the AP’s to their locations.
I was finished with that, and then went to manage devices, and updated all the AP’s I had assigned to each room/floors of N and M.
I go back into the floor plan, and the whole image of the floor plan is stretched vertically and squashed horizontally, and of course now NONE of the drawn on parts line up anymore!
Can this be fixed, because its now doing that for ALL four of those floors now! and I DO NOT want to start from scratch, those floors and plans are BIG!
Im pissed to put it mildly, and will be more so if i have to start from scratch, which im hesitant to do, because it may screw it up again. This is a major bug, and id like it explained why it did that.
The only thing i can think of, is to edit the floor plan, separating M from N, an then uploading it. But then what is the point of the select tool (which show's up after you have uploaded the file!)?

Thanks Sam. Very, very frustrating, as you know how long it can take to draw all the pieces of the plan, and then assign AP’s to it.
I ended up editing the plan, so that instead of using the entire plan, and then only selecting the area i wanted to use, i separated them into individual plans. Thankfully to edit them wasn't difficult, as it was like a square with one side of the building being M and the other N (same for the 2nd floor). So i just cut them in half, saving them individually.
Here is when it gets strange. I uploaded the new plan, selected the area (to be as close to the outer-walls, as there was still a gap), did the sizing, and the drawn on parts almost lined up (yup, the drawn on parts were still there). Because it wasnt lined up, So i uploaded it again, and this time instead of selecting the area, i clicked on Save All and once it was uploaded, and i set its sizing, it ALL lined up (well, pretty darn close).
So at least i didnt have to redraw everything. Although i dont know if ive seen a “clear all” button or setting. Either way, i got very lucky.
The other strange thing i just realized, which will make it hard to bug find, is that it didnt stretch and shrink all four of those plans, one of them is still fine, and correct!
Thanks Sam for getting back to me, and I understand it isnt something that would have been reversible, and the steps i did was the only corrective action (until whatever caused this gets resolved).
Which reminds me, and a different subject, do i go to my Extreme Tech guy to submit a feature request, or should i post in one of these forums?
