Boat Marker Location & 'Hand' to move window contents

Post by Art » 23 Dec 2012 10:32

A few suggestions for you to consider. Merci!

1) I use ZYGrib on all my passages and it would be really, really helpful to be able to drop a pin at the current location of my boat (I would be happy to manually enter the long/lat) and see it in the window with the weather overlaid on it. As it is, I have to approximate it by hovering my mouse over the window and watch the location counter to see when I'm close to where the boat is. Being able to 'click' on the map at the approximate location of where my boat is and have a small window come up to allow me to refine the long/lat would be fantastic! Being greedy, it would also be nice to be able to put a parameter in the input window to say what direction the boat is headed in and the SOG so that when I animate, I could see approximately where the boat will be in a few days along with the forecast weather conditions.

Note: OK, I went back and RTFM and clicked using the context mouse and see where I can drop a marker already, duh! Wish I'd seen this before! Anyway, adding the ability to automatically plot the projected position of the marker over time with the forecast would be great too!

2) Most other applications allo you to use a 'hand' cursor to grab the window and move the contents around. I find I miss this in ZYGrib and having to click on the arrows to move the window contents around is much more difficult.

Thanks for an already terrific program and thanks for your consideration of my ideas.

Joyeux Noël!

Hi,

You so right with RTFM :D

Nearly all suggestions are welcome and added to the ToDo list, but the position in the list is completly under the control of the developper; so we never know if and when it will appear. :P

Happy new year
Bonne journée ou bonne soirée (vous pouvez choisir)
Have a nice day or good night (you can choose)
Guten Morgen oder gute Nacht (Sie können wählen)
