Correct, vop subtract does not use displayed threshold levels in any way.

The resolution of results from map interpolation (which is part of subtraction and several other map calculations) depend on input map resolution, grid spacing, bumpiness, and the shift between their grids, as discussed here:

But if you think there is a problem, you will need to give a precise and detailed description of exactly what you did, including the data files and all the steps needed to show the problem, and why you believe there is a problem (and possibly use menu: Help... Report a Bug, instead of sending e-mail here). If we can't reproduce a problem, we can't fix it!
