[FieldTrip] Warning in topoplot function - 4D data

Dear all,

when plotting topoplots of 4D data using the 4D248 layout, Matlab gives me
the warning "Some points fall outside the outline, please consider using
another layout.". Indeed, two frontal sensors are placed outside the head.

I am wondering why this message shows up and whether this influences
results, i.e. a misplaced peak sensor. I tried with different fieldtrip
versions, current ones and old ones. I get the warning all the time.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks a lot and best regards,
