|Summary||0001362: Compass Rose and RA Scale|
|Description||I noticed on my version (3.10-2854) that on the Setup>Chart Coordinates>Grids tab that there is text cut off under the "Field Number" and under "Right Ascension" grid and this text is cut in half: "EOV numbers 01:0-0.5". |
For a wish list on this tab I would like to be able to set the RA and Dec of the Compass Rose so that it can be inserted at precise locations in sky chart captures. The "Simple Pointer" would need to include 4 directions, as shown in attachment.
It would be nice to set the RA, Dec and orientation of the Hour/Degree/Minute scale as shown in attachment.
Thanks for your consideration.

The text have changed in 3.11. Can you try if it still cut with this version and attach a screen shot of the window.
"Simple Pointer" was initially asked to be only N-E pointer see 0001065
The standard pointer already include the four direction.
The standard pointer bitmap can be modified as part of the theme to look as on your screenshot.
You can copy the default theme folder in Ciel\data\Themes\ to a new folder with another name. Then edit the files compass.bmp and arrow.bmp in this folder.
To activate your theme open: setup/display/color and select you theme in the drop down list.
I can add an option for the compass and scale location.
But RA,Dec is probably not the right way as this is valid only for a single chart location. Maybe a screen x,y offset is better.
"The text have changed in 3.11. Can you try if it still cut with this version and attach a screen shot of the window."
Is there a link to 3.11 so I can try it to attach a screen shot?
The download link for the beta is on the main page http://www.ap-i.net/skychart
Then click on the most recent date as a new beta is build every week.
P.C.: "I can add an option for the compass and scale location.
But RA,Dec is probably not the right way as this is valid only for a single chart location. Maybe a screen x,y offset is better."
A screen x,y offset sounds good.
Can that be done for the compass rose, distance bar, and constellation name and black information that is on the upper left as well? It would be nice to be able to place these objects more accurately for close-up screen captures.
