Summary0000743: length of the read line in the direction setting mode
DescriptionWhat is the determing factor for the length of the red line and the purple field? When setting the direction for the next picture, it is a very pleasant feature that the old direction is kept. But most of the times the red line and the purple filed defining the viewing angle are exceeding the displayed map and you have to move the hole map ore change the nagnification, to get the control point. It would be very pleasant to limit the size of the element to the screen.

And another small feature aligned to this, sometimes the control point seems to run away in the orientation direction

Thanks for helping

If no coordinate is set for the control point, it will be shown always near the border of the map. If a coordinate is set (see option "File | Settings | Data Preferences | Save GPS Destination Coordinate"), it will set to this position and so it maybe will not be shown inside the map, depending on your zoom factor. But I think you can show it easily by using the zoom button on top of the map

Do you save the destination coordinates in your images? See attached screenshot...

my Way for setting coordinates
- finding coordinate on Map
- setting with red baloon
- using blue triangle with the + sign
next picture same procedure
