[Needs Path To Reproduction] Why Do I Have Incorrect Notation For Arc Seconds And Arc Minutes?

in Skysafari 6 Pro, the upper right display for FOV size never shows " denoting arc seconds. It is fixed at ' denoting arc minutes, until it changes to the symbol for degrees.

As a result, the size of Jupiter is displayed as about 30 arc minutes, instead of the correct value of about 30 arc seconds.

    See upper right notation in blue. Skysafari shows the FOV as 32.3 ‘ – for both Jupiter and the Moon.

    As the image zoomed in or out, the notation only displays ‘ for arcminutes or the notation for degrees – never “ for arcseconds.
