Summary0001894: Flexibility in sequence editing while running
DescriptionEditing sequences while the sequence is running could result in sequence abortion.

For myself I have developed the habit to open an second CCDciel program for sequence editing to avoid sequence abort. Separating editing and execution would be more elegant.

The plan for the night is often adapted depending on the sky and seeing conditions and transparency near the horizon. There is nothing else to do in the nightly hours while the automation is working.
TagsNo tags attached.

Yes, many functions like editing a running sequence or resuming an interrupted one is not supported at the moment.

My idea is to release a first version 1.0 in this state after I finish the few open issues.

Then for version 2.0 I want to separate the analyses of the sequence from it's execution.
Maybe by filling a database with the individual steps identified in the sequence.
This make it much more easy for further editing or restarting at the first non executed step.

For now (version 1.0) I disable the edition button when the sequence is running to make clear this is not supported:

Hello Patrick,
I was going to type exact the same feature wish as Han, than I saw this existing entry.
While imaging this with ccdciel: my sequence stopped, because was changing the plan to do more images. Thanks for taking this in account for version 2.

Yes more flexibility is require for that.

What you can safely do for now is to not edit the sequence but make the change for the current step directly in the Capture tool.
This is because when a step start it fill the Capture values, start them and wait for the end. So you can change the number of exposure there.
But this apply only to the current step.
