Map Theme - Tree Growth settings ignored

I am working with a client who wants to create a template which uses tree growth.  This has been set up in the Theme of the map but it is ignored when inserting new topics.

There is also another issue with the Theme editor when you select Main Topic in the left Hand column it selects the Org-Chart topic in the Theme map.

And why are sub-topics labelled main topics?

Please see attached map which has screen grabs to illustrate the above. You can insert topics and see the theme not working.

It's interesting to see what happens when you clear the formatting of the Central Topic (which resets the formatting to the one defined in the template)... Maybe this will this help you, as it looks like the map formatting is working as required and new Topics will be created using the right formatting?

I am beginning to think it's that as soon as you make the default growth of a topic Org Chart then all sub topics must be org chart. The Theme editor sort of indicates this and your only choice for sub topic growth is Org Chart

Here is a map showing the required Theme and what you get when you set it up in the Theme editor.
